The rising use of acetaldehyde in the food & beverage, chemical manufacture, plastics, and paint industries; and high growth in emerging countries drive the acetaldehyde market.
The acetaldehyde market is estimated at USD 1.33 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 1.80 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.24% between 2017 and 2022. Acetaldehyde, also known as ethanal, is an aldehyde used as a starting material in the production of pyridines, ethyl acetate, n-butyl alcohol, and other chemical compounds. Pure acetaldehyde is a colorless, flammable liquid, miscible with water, with a pungent and fruity odor. Acetaldehyde is synthesized naturally and is also produced synthetically on a large scale for various commercial applications and as an important chemical intermediate. The demand for acetaldehyde is growing in emerging economies, such as India, China, and Brazil. Acetaldehyde is mainly used as an intermediate for the synthesis of other chemicals. The major derivatives of acetaldehyde are pentaerythritol, which is used in the manufacture of synthetic resins for the paint industry; and pyridines which are used as solvents in the production of rubber and dyes.

Water treatment segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR in the acetaldehyde market
Based on application, the water treatment segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. Acetaldehyde plays a vital role in wastewater treatment owing to its disinfectant properties. Acetaldehyde is used for the treatment of wastewater from various industries and manufacturing plants. The demand for acetaldehyde from the water treatment application is gaining momentum due to rising environmental impact, such as degradation of freshwater bodies and aquatic life by untreated wastewater, increasing population, and concerns about pollution.

Rising demand for acetaldehyde in the Asia Pacific is driving the acetaldehyde market
The acetaldehyde market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, which can be attributed to the easy availability of raw materials used for the manufacture of acetaldehyde. The Asia Pacific is a strategic location for acetaldehyde manufacturers, as an overall slowdown in the global economic scenario has encouraged many established manufacturers to expand their manufacturing facilities in this region and, thus, increase their sales. The growth of the Asia Pacific market is expected to be primarily driven by China, India, and Japan. Key manufacturers of acetaldehyde are focusing on expanding their bases in the Asia Pacific region to increase their market shares and enhance profit margins.
