Report Scope: This study classifies the global benzoic acid market by end-use industry, application, and geographic region. It also projects revenues and examines market trends for each of the submarkets.

The benzoic acid market is divided into three categories according to end-use industry: chemical, food & beverage, and pharmaceutical. During the projection period in 2018, the food and beverage category held a significant portion of the market. The population is changing, urbanisation is continuing, and packaged food items are in higher demand as a result. In the food and beverage end-use industry, benzoic acid is employed directly as a food preservative and is primarily eaten as sodium benzoate and potassium benzoate. Thus, a rise in the demand for food products packaged for sale fuels the expansion of the benzoic acid market globally.

During the forecast period, the market for benzoic acid is anticipated to develop at the quickest rate in South America. Due to the expanding usage of refrigeration in numerous end-use industries, including the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, South American countries offer very promising growth possibilities for the benzoic acid market. The booming pharmaceutical industry in South America, which is expanding at a rate of 12% yearly, can be credited for the expansion of the market for benzoic acid in this end-use sector.
