Acetaldehyde (ACH), with the formula (CH3CHO) or (C2H4O), also known as MeCHO and ethanal, is a colorless, organic chemical compound miscible in water. It is a highly flammable liquid with a pungent odor. It is found in naturally ripened fruit, green plants, bread, and coffee. It is deployed as a raw material to make pyridine and pyridine bases, pentaerythritol, acetic acid, peracetic acid, and ethyl acetate. It is also used for manufacturing various chemicals, perfumes, disinfectants, drugs, flavoring agents, polyvinyl acetate, and dyes. As a result, acetaldehyde has extensive applications across pharmaceuticals, chemicals, coatings, food, and beverage (F&B), cosmetics, and paints industries.
The market is primarily driven by the rising product adoption in the food and beverage (F&B) industry as a preservative for fish and fruits and as a flavoring agent in pastries, desserts, fruit juices, and milk products. It is also used as an aromatic agent in various non-alcoholic beverages and foods prepared by fermentation, such as soy, canned vegetables, and milk products. Besides this, rapid digitalization and the rising popularity of social media are prompting key players to advertise and stay updated, which is providing a positive thrust to market growth. In addition, acetaldehyde is significantly used in the paints and coatings industry for the composition of binders, the production of polymer resins, and basic dyes. This, coupled with commercial applications of acetaldehyde as an industrial solvent, is propelling the market growth. Moreover, various advancements in the field of bio-based acetaldehyde and investment by key players are accelerating the product adoption rate. Apart from this, the escalating demand for pyridines as an ideal raw material used in diversified end uses such as vitamins, food flavors, rubber products, insecticides, and medicines represent another major growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the rising investment in research and development (R&D) activities, changing consumer patterns, inflating disposable incomes, and rapid urbanization are some of the other factors creating a positive market outlook.
