Global Glycolic Acid Market

Dublin, Nov. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Glycolic Acid Market by Grade (Cosmetic, Technical), Application (Personal Care and Dermatology, Industrial, Household) and Region (Asia Pacific, North America , Europe, South America, Middle East and Africa) – Forecast to 2027 report” has been added to from offer.

The global glycolic acid market size is estimated at USD 327 Million in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 450 Million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.6%, between 2022 and 2027.

Technical grade is the largest quality segment of the glycolic acid market

Technical grade glycolic acid is a colorless to light yellow liquid solution primarily used in the manufacture of household, industrial and electronic cleaners. It is available in a 70% concentration for applications ranging from automotive oil additives, oil and water well flow activators, and pH control products to chemical intermediates.

It is also considered ideal for use in emulsion polymers, solvents, and ink and paint additive applications to improve their gloss structure and flow properties. Technical grade glycolic acid is also widely used in oil and gas, building and construction, coatings, metal surface treatment, electronics manufacturing, polymer manufacturing, dairy processing and other apps.

Personal Care & Dermatology is the largest glycolic acid market application

The personal care and dermatology applications segment led the market in terms of value and volume. Glycolic acid is used in chemical peels, moisturizers, shampoos and other products. It helps treat and remove dead skin cells and helps the skin to revitalize itself and regain its lost moisture, due to which it is highly preferred in anti-pollution skincare products today. As the solution is of natural origin, it has no serious side effects except skin irritation if not used with sunscreens.

Other glycolic acid derivatives such as polyglycolic acid, ammonium glycolate, and sodium glycolate are often used in cosmetic applications. Cosmetic grade glycolic acid is typically used at a ratio of 2-4% with other moisturizing solutions in cosmetic products. The use of technical grade glycolic acid without purification is strictly discouraged due to certain residues such as iron in the solution.

Asia-Pacific is the largest market for glycolic acid market

The Asia-Pacific region is expected to be the largest market, in terms of value. Asia-Pacific is also expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Rising population, improved standard of living, increased awareness of personal care, and increase in e-commerce activities have led to an increase in the demand for cosmetics in this region. China and India are high growth markets for skin care, hair care and makeup products, supported by economic growth in these countries and increasing consumer spending on cosmetics.
