Asia Pacific to account for the largest market size during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is expected to have the most significant mono-chloroacetic acid market share. Rising demand for monochloroacetic acid (MCA) has led to increased consumption in China and India due to the personal care and pharmaceutical industries. Increasingly, people are concerned about cleanliness and hygiene, which has increased personal care products, detergents, and washing soaps. MCA is needed to create a range of unique care products, so demand is expected to increase.

Crystalline dominated the market with the most significant market revenue of USD 379.8 million.

Crystalline dominated the market with the most significant revenue of USD 379.8 million. Due to the easy manufacturing process and low expenses of crystalline form, the segment is expected to grow over the forecast period. Chemically it is known as chlorocaetic acid, It is widely used as a thickening agent and in organic synthesis.

Carboxymethylcellulose accounted for the largest share of the market, with a market revenue of USD 263.9 million.

Carboxymethylcellulose accounted for the largest share of the market, with a market revenue of USD 263.9 million. In addition to oil and gas, material, paints and coatings, food, and drink, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) is the most significant user of monochloroacetic acid. It has the fastest-growing segment in the market, surfactants. The increasing use of this product in detergents, wetting agents, emulsifiers, and frothing agents, which are incorporated into a few individual concern products, is expected to drive market growth.

Market Dynamics

Drivers: Rising demand in the oil & gas sector

In the oil & gas industry, this acid is used in drilling procedures requiring large quantities of carboxymethylcellulose. Considering such a wide range of applications, monochloroacetic acid is expected to experience a significant increase over the next seven years. The volatility in raw material prices may considerably threaten the market’s growth. Ethanol is a petroleum product and is one of the most important raw materials used to produce this acid.

Restraint: Fluctuating raw material price

It is evident that the market is growing immensely, but a few factors are making it difficult to grow, such as fluctuating raw material prices and high transportation costs; these factors hamper the market growth.

Opportunity: Widely used in hair styling products

Thioglycolic acid is also used in hair care products, such as shampoos, conditioners, and hair masks. It is used in permanent hair styling formulations and can also be manufactured using mono chloroacetic acid (MCA).

Challenge: Direct contact with skin results in severe irritation

Health issues associated with monochloroacetic acid may pose a huge challenge to market growth. When it comes in direct contact with the skin, the person may develop severe irritation. Apart from this, coughing and sneezing are some of the side effects of monochloroacetic acid.
