    Market Dynamics

    The fumaric acid market is experiencing significant growth due to several factors that are driving its demand in various industries. Some of the key factors contributing to the expansion of the fumaric acid market include-

    • Expanding use in the polymer industry – Fumaric acid is used in the production of unsaturated polyester resins (UPRs), which are used in the production of products like paints, coatings, etc. The growing use of UPRs across various industries is expected to drive the demand for fumaric acid in the polymer industry.
    • Growing Food and Beverage Industry: Fumaric acid is used as an acidulant and acidity regulator or pickling agent in the food and beverage industry. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), feeding the world population in 2050 would call for increasing overall food production by ~70%. With the rising global population, the demand for processed food is increasing, leading to higher consumption of fumaric acid.
    • Shift towards natural ingredients – Consumers are shifting towards natural and clean label ingredients in the food and beverage industry. Fumaric acids are naturally found in fruits and vegetables and can replace synthetic acidulants. The demand for fumaric acids is rising since the demand for natural and healthier products grows.
