North America Levulinic Acid Market Size 2019-2025 Showcase Impressive Growth

Author : Ronak Bora | Published Date : 2019-07-01 

North America is a key consumer of levulinic acid market as the U.S. is one of the largest production grounds for biofuels. Most companies in North America imports levulinic acid from Chinese manufacturers. Levulinic acid is sold in Asia Pacific through bulk chemical suppliers and finds increased usage in oil & gas and paints & coatings industry. Biofuel is an upcoming industry in Asia Pacific and levulinic acid can expect lot of demand from this sector. In Europe levulinic acid is mostly used as raw material for other chemical industries.

The segmentation of levulinic acid market can be done based on application such as usage in agriculture, pharmaceuticals, food additives, tobacco and cosmetics. It can also be segmented according to the method of production. It can be produced from glucose or biomass waste. Levulinic acid is mostly produced from carbohydrates in presence of mineral acids such as hydrochloric acid at temperature 140-200 degree Celsius. The geographical segmentation is useful to study regional demand for levulinic acid in North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.

Levulinic Acid Market size will witness healthy growth with developments in the agriculture and biofuel industry. It is a type of keto acid, manufactured from degraded cellulose and precursor to biofuels. Its naturally occurring form is Delta-amino levulinic acid (DALA) and it finds usage as herbicide in lawns and is useful for grain crops. It is also used as a plant growth stimulator. It can be used as a potential replacement of petroleum products reducing amount of greenhouse emissions. In most cases microorganism Rhodobacter is used in its production. Leluvinic acid also used in cigarettes for binding nicotine to neutral receptors.

The consumption of levulinic acid is increasing in both cosmetic and pharmaceutical markets. Even today sulfuric acid is used as herbicides to kill weeds, but it is not fully desirable because of its corrosive nature. This gives chances to DALA to establish itself as safe herbicide alternative. Indian Government is betting big on green fuel, particularly biofuel with first and second-generation biofuel plants already commissioned. Other Asia Pacific countries are also looking for green alternatives as WHO reports regularly warn about growing pollution across the whole world.

The physical properties of levulinic acids lead low yields which hurts economies of scale. High equipment costs make mass production a very costly affair. Vinyl acetates and cellulose acetates are upcoming substitutes produced and available at cheaper rates. Setting appropriate conditions for production of levulinic acid from waste biomass is a daunting task and not easily achievable. Separating the reaction products and obtaining levulinic acid is another tough task. Many Asia Pacific nations impose education cess and countervailing duties on the levulinic acid market, leading to increasing product costs, hence posing hindrances in the Levulinic Acid Market growth.
