The global monochloroacetic acid (MCAA) market is mainly driven by increasing demand for the production of carboxymethylcellulose, thioglycolic acid, and glycine. Monochloroacetic acid, being a major building block in organic synthesis, sees high demand as an intermediate in chemical, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, and personal care industries. However, emerging alternatives for monochloroacetic acid in agrochemical production, such as pyridine, to produce symtet, is posing a challenge to the market to some extent. A recent trend observed in the MCAA market is capacity expansions by key market players and new market entrants through consolidation of backward vertical integrated operations.
According to PMR analysis, the global monochloroacetic acid market is projected to expand at a decent CAGR of nearly 6% over the forecast period of 2020 to 2030.
