The cost of production is an important factor and it is very high for itaconic acids, which has hampered the growth for the market. The itaconic acid market is growing at a rapid pace in the Asia Pacific region owing to increased development. Countries such as India, China, Japan, South Korea, and Indonesia are investing in manufacturing industries such as automotive, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics that have fueled the demand for itaconic acid. China is one of the largest producers and consumers of itaconic acid and its production is expected to surface USD 20 million valuations in the coming years. The rising demand for high quality and pure itaconic acid and a large gap in demand and supply of these products and government policies for adopting bio-based acids are the factors driving the growth for the market and is predicted to continue the same in the forecasted period.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities:

  • Increased demand in industries such as cosmetics, electrical appliance, and pharmaceuticals, the rapid industrialization in the Asia Pacific countries such as India, China, South Korea, Japan, and Indonesia, and the growing need for UPR, which is a key application of itaconic acid in pipes, laminating resins, and fibers are some of the factors driving the growth for the itaconic acid market.
  • The latest trend in the itaconic acid market is the use in the coating and adhesive sectors. These applications have fueled the demand in the automotive and electrical industries.
  • Factors that are hampering the growth for the itaconic acid market are fluctuation in prices of raw materials such as cornstarch, sugar, and glucose, which affects the prices of itaconic acids.
  • Superabsorbent polymers are produced from itaconic acid and provide many opportunities for growth for the market. It has the potential to replace acrylic acid and can use polyitaconic acid through polymerization.
