The global tartaric acid market is expected to reach USD 425 million by 2020.

Increasing wine consumption in Asia Pacific and Latin America is expected to remain a key factor driving tartaric acid market growth over the forecast period. Increasing tartaric acid consumption as anti-oxidant and taste enhancer in food products is also expected to have a positive impact on the market growth. Tartaric acid prices witnessed slump during 2009 to 2010 mainly due to economic recession in U.S. and debt crisis in Europe. The prices recovered there after due to high tartaric acid demand from emerging markets.

Wine was the largest application segment and accounted for 33.6% of the total market volume in 2013. Tartaric acid is widely used in wine applications as a preservative, pH level reducer and tartness improver. Increasing wine production in China and with growing per capita consumption in Brazil, China, Italy, Spain and France is expected to drive tartaric acid demand in wineries. Wine is also expected to witness the highest growth rate of 5.7% from 2014 to 2020.

Further key findings from the study suggest:

  • Global tartaric acid market demand was 60.56 kilo tons in 2013 and is expected to reach 87.18 kilo tons by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2014 to 2020.
  • Europe emerged as the largest regional market and accounted for 39.4% of the total market volume in 2013.
