Succinic acid, also known as amber acid, is a dicarboxylic acid which is widely used in various industries such as pharmaceutical, chemical, and food among others. Succinic acid is a platform chemical. Succinic acid can be manufactured using conventional (crude oil based) method and by bio-based route as well. Presently, the large volume of succinic acid is derived from petroleum feedstock and a small amount is produced from the fermentation process. Maleic anhydride and N-butane are some of the key raw materials for succinic acid production by the conventional method.
According to the report, the global succinic acid market was valued at approximately USD 400.0 million in 2014 and is expected to reach approximately USD 1,000.0 million by 2020, growing at a CAGR of over 20% between 2015 and 2020. In terms of volume, global succinic acid market stood at 100.0 tons in 2014. Zion Market Research has published a new report titled “Succinic Acid Market for 1,4-BDO, Resin, Coatings, Dyes & Inks, Pharmaceutical, Polyurethane, Food, Plasticizers, Cosmetics, Solvents & Lubricants and De-Icing Solutions Applications: Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2014 – 2020”.

Succinic acid is widely used as a building block chemical in the manufacturing of many other chemicals. Succinic acid yields derivatives such as 1,4-butanediol (BDO), gamma-butyrolactone (GBL), and tetrahydrofuran (THF), have the high potential for use as solvents and fibers such as lycra. In addition, pyrrolidinones and N-methylpyrrolidinone can also be directly produced from succinic acid manufactured by fermentation. These organic chemicals find high demand in pharmacology. The succinic acid market is expected to witness strong growth owing to increasing demand for its derivatives. Strong demand from Asia Pacific is also expected to fuel the growth of succinic acid market owing strong growth prospectus of various end-user industries in the region. However, environmental concerns and fluctuations in raw material prices are expected to be major concerns for the manufacturers of petroleum-based succinic acid. On the other hand, bio-based succinic acid manufacturers are expected to face challenges such as high initial investment and high production cost as compared to petroleum-based succinic acid.
1,4-BDO, resin, coatings, dyes & inks, pharmaceutical, polyurethane, food, plasticizers, cosmetics, solvents & lubricants and de-icing solutions are some of the important application markets for succinic acid. With around 20% share in total volume consumed, coatings, resins, dyes, and inks collectively were the largest application market for succinic acid in 2014.

Pharmaceutical is also one of the prominent application markets for succinic acid. Pharmaceutical was the second largest application market for succinic and closely followed by polyurethane and 1,4-BDO. 1,4-BDo is expected to exhibit robust growth rate in the years to come. It is mainly used in the production of tetrahydrofuran (THF), polyurethane elastomers, polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), and gamma-butyrolactone.
Europe was a leading regional market for succinic acid in 2014. Asia Pacific and Europe accounted for almost similar share of the total succinic acid volume consumed in 2014. However, Asia Pacific is expected to grow at rapid pace and outperform Europe in succinic acid demand by the end of 2020. This strong growth can be attributed to the rising demand for paints and coatings, polyurethane, 1,4-BDO in various end-user industries in the region. China, India, Japan and South Korea are major demand driver in the region. However, Europe will keep dominating bio-based succinic acid market all through the forecast period.
