(MENAFN- America News Hour)
“The market for fumaric acid is expected to grow at a CAGR more than 4% globally during the forecast period. Fumaric acid is known as trans-butenedioic acid, is a white crystalline compound found in nature. It is the primary intermediate in the tricarboxylic acid cycle for the biosynthesis of organic acid in humans and other mammals. Similar to malic acid, fumaric acid helps in the production of energy from food in the form of ATP. It is the strongest organic food acid as it has higher relative sourness than other acidulants. The growing application of fumaric acid in the food and beverage industry and the production of polyester resin have been driving the market growth.
However, the health hazards related to fumaric acid-like breathing fumaric acid can cause coughing and damage kidneys are likely to hinder the growth of the studied market. The sudden unfavorable conditions arising due to the COVID-19 outbreak is also expected to halt the industrial production and hamper the market growth.
The research and technological development in fumaric acid waterproofing admixture for self-sealing watertight concretes are likely to provide opportunities for the fumaric acid market over the next five years.
Asia-Pacific region dominates the fumaric acid market, owing to growing application of fumaric acid in food and construction industry in the region.
