TABLE 22 Competitive Analysis

On the basis of applications, the lactic acid market is classified into food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, industrial applications and personal care products. The market was dominated by food and beverages application but growth is projected to the fastest from the industrial application.

 

Lactic Acid Market

The volatility in the prices of crude oil and rising demand for environment friendly products are the major factors contributing towards the market growth. In addition, rising demand of polylactic acid (PLA) is projected to fuel the market demand for lactic acid.

On the basis of geography, the global lactic acid market is segmented into following regions,

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
    • Mexico
  • Europe
    • Germany
    • France
    • U.K
    • Italy
    • Russia
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • Japan
    • China
    • India
    • Australia
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World
    • Brazil
    • Rest of RoW

In 2014, by region, North America and Asia Pacific together accounted for more than 60% share of the pie in terms of revenue. North America is the largest market globally and is projected to grow at a second highest rate in terms of revenue from 2015 to 2022.

 

Lactic Acid Market 

Asia Pacific region is projected to witness fastest growth rate in terms of revenue and volume. In, Asia Pacific, China accounted for the largest share. Europe and RoW is projected to witness moderate growth rate. Economies such as Thailand, other Asian countries and Eastern Europe offers huge untapped market opportunities.

Lactic acid is produced by the fermentation of starch. Homolactic fermentation produces mainly lactic acid on the other hand hetrolactic fermentation produces a mixture of lactic acid, formic acid, acetic acid and ethanol. The selectively is determined by the organisms used. Industrially used bacteria comprise of streptococcus thermophiles and lactobacillus acidophilus. Lactic acid have two optical isomers L (+)-lactic acid and D (-)-lactic acid. Lactic acid is classified as GRAS (generally recognized as safe) for use as a food additive. Depending on the bacteria selection, fermentation routes to lactic acid can produce optically pure L (+) - or D (-) - lactic acid.

At present, worldwide production of lactic acid is manufactured through the fermentation process, due to lower cost of production and for biorenewable products. L (+)-lactic acid production is commercially mature, due to presence of large multinationals globally such as Galactic, Cargill, Purac, and Archer Daniels Midland among others. For the commercial production of D(-)-lactic acid, Purac have licensed technology developed by Myriant Technologies with a capacity to produce 100,000 tons annually. The plant in located in Thailand.

Lactic acid is used in wide range of applications. It is used in food and beverages sector as a pH adjusting agent and as a preservative. It is also used in chemicals and pharmaceuticals industries as a starting material for the production of lactate ester, as a solvent among various other applications. Lactic acid due to its skin lightening, moisturising and pH regulating properties is used as an active ingredient in personal care products. Polymerisation of lactic acid produces a biodegradable polymer known as polylactic acid (PLA). It is used in food packaging of shrink wrap, rigid containers, short shelf life trays, rubbish bags and mulch films.

North America is the largest market for lactic acid globally followed by Asia Pacific. In North America, the U.S. is the largest market for lactic acid led by the growing demand from polylactic acid and food and beverages segment. European market for lactic acid is projected to grow at a moderate growth rate. The region rely on imports to satisfy the lactic acid demand. At present, in Europe, Western Europe is the mature market driven by consumption in food and beverages and Eastern Europe offers huge growth potential. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest growing market. Due to rising demand from industrial and food and beverages applications. India, China and Japan are the major markets for lactic acid and offers huge growth potential.  

Purac, NatureWorks LLC, Synbra, Pyramid Bioplastics, and BASF among others are some of the major players present in this market.

Heart Failure Drugs Market: Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018-2026

Heart failure, often called as Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), is a chronic, progressive condition in which the heart is incapable to pump blood. There are two types of heart failure namely, left-sided heart failure and right-sided heart failure. Left-sided heart failure further bifurcates into systolic failure and diastolic failure. Systolic heart failure (Heart Failure with reduced Ejection Fraction (HFrEF)) is the condition when the left ventricle is unable to contract normally and is extremely weak to pump sufficient blood around the body.

Medical Masks Market - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018-2026

As per the research citings of Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 2015 report, approximately 1 in 25 hospitalized patients suffer from healthcare associated infections every day. The primary purpose of surgical masks is to protect the healthcare professionals from the inhalation of respiratory particles and droplets which have a potential to induce respiratory tract infection. The medical masks are widely utilized in hospitals, ambulatory care centers, dentists and healthcare professionals working in pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

Oil-free Air Compressors Market Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Oil-free air compressor, also termed as water-injected compressor (WIS), involves water injection instead of oil in compression chamber. This restricts oil from mixing with compressed air & drain water, thereby offering pollutant free and cost effective processes.
