Market Dynamics:

Increasing Applications of Lactic Acid in Various End-Use Industries

The increasing applications of lactic acid in various end use industries like food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, personal care, industrial, and others is anticipated to augment the growth of the Lactic Acid Market during the forecast period. The use of lactic acid in food industry can extend foods’ shelf life; give products different tastes and texture and also acts as acidifier. According to FDA, lactic acid as generally safe to use in a variety of ways, including antimicrobial agent, curing and pickling agent, flavor enhancer, pH control agent and solvent. Furthermore, in cosmetics, it is used as emulsifier or for moisturizing. It is precisely used to treat hyperpigmentation, age spots, recover dull and uneven complexion, improves skin tone and reduces pore appearance, among others. Thus, owing to increasing benefits in various applications is expected to drive the Lactic Acid Market in the years to come.

Rise in Demand for Alternative Environment-friendly Resources to Stimulate Market Growth

Lactic acid is largely (90%) produced with the use of bacteria through anaerobic fermentation of sugars. Lactic acid is produced via different biomass, like starch crops, sugar crops, lignocellulosic materials and also from whey (a residue from cheese production). The bio-based production used is considered to be more economical and more environmentally friendly than the chemical process. Furthermore, PLA has also advantaged such as low energy consumption and emission of low greenhouse gas while used in production of 3D printing applications. The production of PLA offers an eco-friendly alternative over other traditional polymers. As global climate changes are becoming increasingly extreme, the use of more ecologically feasible production methods is also turning to be more important.
