Salicylic acid (C?H?O?) refers to a lipophilic monohydroxybenzoic acid, which is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) belonging to a class of drugs known as salicylates. It appears as a colorless or white crystalline solid with no odor. It is an organic compound that is manufactured synthetically from sodium phenolate and carbon dioxide or can be derived naturally from willow and salix plants. Salicylic acid exhibits fungicidal, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, keratolytic, and comedolytic properties, due to which it is widely utilized as an intermediate in the personal care and pharmaceutical sectors, and an active ingredient for drugs, such as aspirin. It is also instrumental in preventing fermentation and spoilage of packaged food products.
The market is primarily driven by the high demand for effective personal care and cosmetic products. This can be attributed to the growing prevalence of chronic acne vulgaris and other dermatological conditions among the masses. Also, the considerable growth in the sales of packaged food and beverage products is propelling the need for longer product shelf-life, which, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market. The market is further driven by the continual advancements in the pharmaceutical industry with new product launches and innovations. Some of the other factors providing an impetus to the market growth include the easy product availability across organized online and offline retail channels, shifting consumer preferences towards natural and organic skincare products, the increasing consumption of convenience food products, the rising sales of over-the-counter (OTC) drugs and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players.
