Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Acetic Acid Market – Forecast 2016-2021.” report to their offering.

A majority of the acetic acid that is produced is used to produce vinyl acetate monomer, or VAM. Vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) is a building block that is used in many industries to make paints, adhesives, packaging, and more. Acetic acid is a chemical reagent for the production of chemical compounds. The largest single use of acetic acid is in the production of vinyl acetate monomer, closely followed by acetic anhydride and ester production. The volume of acetic acid used in vinegar is comparatively small.

Acetic acid is the sour-tasting compound that gives that characteristic tang to vinegar, pickles, and sourdough bread. The chemical bonds in starches and sugars may be disrupted by acetic acid. Other theories are that acetic acid causes slower digestion or faster rates of transfer of sugar from your bloodstream to your muscles.

North America is the leading market for acetic acid. Asia-pacific region is forecast to have highest growth in the next few years due to growing adoption of acetic acid in industrial applications.
