The elevating product demand as an additive from numerous end-use industries, such as personal care products, adhesives and sealants, plastics and polymers, pharmaceutical, coatings, ink, etc., is driving the citric acid market. Additionally, the increasing levels of urbanization, inflating disposable incomes, and hectic lifestyles of consumers are leading to a rise in demand for ready-to-eat and processed food and beverages. This, in turn, is propelling the product demand, as citric acid acts as a preservative. Apart from this, the escalating awareness towards the adverse effects caused by chemicals utilized in daily use products is encouraging consumers to shift towards organic items. This, in turn, will continue to catalyze the citric acid market in the coming years. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the citric acid market to exhibit moderate growth during 2021-2026.
