The growing use of benzoic acid in personal care products and cosmetics is likely to be a major driver for the global benzoic acid market over the forecast period. Benzoic acid and salicylic acid are often used in conjunction to counter the threat of fungus, as they both have excellent antifungal properties. The increasing demand for well-crafted and effective personal care products, especially in developing economies round the world, is likely to be a major driver for the global benzoic acid market over the coming years.
Growing demand from the food and beverage industry is likely to be a major driver for the global benzoic acid market. Benzoic acid and its sodium, potassium, or calcium salts are used as a food preservative due to their effective antifungal property. The growing demand for preserved and packaged food from the global consumer demographic is likely to drive the demand for effective natural preservatives such as benzoic acid.
Plasticizers derived from benzoic acid, i.e. benzoate plasticizers, are also likely to be a major fruitful channel for the key players in the global benzoic acid market. While phthalates are widely used as plasticizers at present, the environmental impact of the same has been adverse. This has led to a renewed interest in finding alternatives that don’t hurt the environment and still fulfill the important functional criteria. Benzoate plasticizers are likely to find increasing demand in the global plastics market over the coming years, driving the demand from the global benzoic acid market.
