The global wood vinegar market was valued at $4.5 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $6.4 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 7.0% from 2020 to 2027. 

Wood vinegar is produced by using destructive distillation process. It is also known as pyroligneous acid or wood acid. It is a dark liquid produced by wood and other biomass materials. The main ingredients of wood vinegar are methanol, acetone, and acetic acid. Wood vinegar was used as a commercial source for acetic acid. Furthermore, it majorly comprises around 70-90% water with some organic content. Wood vinegar is also used for food preservation application for meat, fish, and others. This is attributed to its antimicrobial contents such as acetate, methyl ethyl ester, alcohol, aldehyde, ketone, and others.  In addition, wood vinegar is highly adopted in agricultural practices as the outcome of using wood vinegar for agricultural application  has  resulted  in  increased  crop  yield.  It  is  used  as  weed  growth  inhibitor,  repellent, plant  growth promoter,  and  others.  It  promotes cell  growth  and  also works as  a  catalyst  for  the development of various microbes that are responsible for photosynthesis, nutrient absorption, and others. Increase in demand for personal care products with organic formulations drives the demand of the global market. There is significant rise in awareness regarding chemical-based personal care products, which results in increase in demand for personal care products with organic formulations. Therefore, the demand for products such as wood  vinegar  has  increased  in  the  recent  years.  But  the  consumer  base  for  wood  vinegar  in  personal  care products is expected to increase in the coming years. Wood vinegar is used in personal care products such as sun screen lotion, soap, and others.

Wood-Vinegar-Market-2020-2027

The wood vinegar market is anticipated to witness significant growth due to numerous factors such as technological advancement in production method, rise in demand from Asia-Pacific, and others. In addition, it is a great alternative for synthetic pesticide and fertilizer. It has enormous use in agriculture such as anti-pathogenic fungal, plant growth promoter, weed grow inhibitor, and others. However, lack of awareness regarding wood vinegar hinders the wood vinegar market growth. In addition, restrictions on burning of biomass wood in some of the regions limits the growth of wood vinegar market. On the contrary, rise in application of wood vinegar such as anti-protozoa, anti-bacterial, and sterilizing agent is expected to offer lucrative opportunities during the forecast period. In addition, the demand for wood vinegar is expected to increase in the coming years. This is attributed to rise in trend of organic farming. There is an increase in the adoption of organic farming all around the world owing to rise in awareness  regarding  the  disadvantages  by chemical-based  pesticides  and  fertilizers.  This  creates  a  lucrative opportunity  for  wood  vinegar  manufacturers  as  wood  vinegar  offers  numerous  benefits  in  agriculture applications.
