Valeric Acid Market Outlook - 2027

Valeric acid, a low-molecular-weight carboxylic acid compound with an unpleasant odor. It is primarily used for the synthesis of its esters and perfumes and cosmetics productions. Valeric acid, a colorless and oily compound, is also known as pentanoic acid. It has wide range of applications, including plasticizers, ester-type lubricants, and vinyl stabilizers. Some esters of valeric acid, such as pentyl valerate and ethyl valerate have been used as food additives.

The valeric acid market is segmented depending on its various characteristics. On the basis of grade, the market is bifurcated into research grade and regular grade. The applications covered in the study include API intermediates, lubricants, flavors & perfumes, and others. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Middles East. 

COVID-19 scenario analysis

  • Owing to sudden fall in demand for cosmetics and food additives, the valeric acid market will witness a decline in long term.
  • Retail chain disruption and closure of retail shops across Asia-Pacific will lead to decline in growth of the cosmetics and perfumes market, which negatively impacted the overall valeric acid market growth.
  • In addition, export and import restrictions across the globe lead to supply–demand gap, which will further hamper the market growth.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis

The major drivers of the valeric acid market are significant surge in demand for valeric acid in industries processes. In agricultural chemicals such as pesticides, valeric acid plays a major role. In addition, increase in consumption of valeric acid has been witnessed in laboratory and research work. Moreover, it acts as an active pharmaceutical ingredient, and is projected to gain traction in the pharmaceutical industry. Valeric acid is now being manufactured from the bio-based sources, which make the product environmentally friendly. However, the major restraint of the global valeric acid market are its unpleasant odor and availability of other alternatives present in the market such as butyric acid. Butyric acid possesses the same properties as that of valeric acid, and is widely used in industries for similar applications.
