Lactic acid esters are ester compounds derived from the esterification of lactic acid. It is also referred to as a derivative of lactic acid. Lactic acid is a green solvent that is obtained from the fermentation followed by purification of carbohydrates. Lactic acid esters are used as solvents in various applications across different industries. Lactic acid esters are finding increased use in agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals. In agrochemicals, they are used to produce environmentally friendly insecticides and pesticides. In the pharmaceutical sector, lactic acid esters are used in manufacturing ointments and medicines. Lactic acid ester is used in the electronics sectors as a solvent for cleaning formulation in semiconductor and electronic goods. The growing electronics industry across the globe is projected to have a positive impact on the lactic acid ester market in the coming years.

The global consumer electronic market has a huge demand in the coming years. Lactic acid ester is expected to have exponential growth in the electronic market hence it is predicted to have greater use of lactic acid ester in the upcoming years. The revenue generated from the electronics sector with respect to the use of lactic acid esters is expected to highly contribute to the growth of the global market. Lactic acid ester is used in the food products to enhance the required aeration and improve foam stabilization in beverage items include pastries, cake, and cold drinks. Lactic acid esters are widely used in the three basic types ethyl lactate, methyl lactate, and butyl lactate. Ethyl lactate is expected to witness a relatively high adoption among end-users during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its properties such as biodegradability and can be used as a water-rinsible degreaser. North America led the lactic acid ester market in 2019, owing to the significant revenue share from the bakery products industry. North America will continue to lead the lactic acid ester market in terms of product volume consumption and revenue during the forecast period.
