PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Propionic Acid Market is expected to exceed 2.5 billion USD by 2032 from 1.35 billion USD in 2021, growing at a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period i.e., from 2022-2032

Propionic acid is a water-soluble, three-carbon carboxylic acid with an unpleasant pungent smell and is colorless liquid. Propionic acid is manufactured by fermentation process and by hydro carboxylation of ethylene using nickel carbonyl catalyst. Propionic acid is utilized as preservative in food items like baked products, cheeses, and even as additive for artificial flavors. The raw materials used for production of propionic acid are carbon monoxide & ethylene. It is used as synthetic intermediate in production the of vitamin E, flavoring agents, esters, pharmaceuticals, solvents and many more. The usage of Propionic acid is studied to be safe and can be utilized as preservative in food items and in animal feed. Propionic acid prevents the growth of several molds, hence possess antibacterial properties and is used in breads as preservatives to increase the shelf life.
