Global Monochloroacetic Acid Market, By Product form (Crystalline, Liquid, Flakes), By Application (

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1958605


A special organochlorine compound, also recognized as chloroacetic acid, is monochloroacetic acid (MCAA). In organic synthesis, it is the construction stone and is therefore used in the manufacturing of multiple chemical compounds, medications and agrochemicals. Large quantities of MCAA are absorbed in the manufacturing of carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), thioglycolic acid, USP grade glycine, and technical grade glycine, a significant forerunner of glyphosate manufacturing.

For monochloroacetic acid, the pharmaceutical industry has enormous use. It is used for maleanate, ibuprofen, n-glycine, dichlophenac acid and vitamin manufacturing. Monochloroacetic substances are an incredibly powerful topical keratolytic and caustic substance used in the therapy of skin lesions, veruccae and atherosclerosis in different medications. Growing demographic aging instances are anticipated to occur in medical industry development in nations such as the U.S. and Japan and thus help the general development of the market. This acid is used in different chemical industries as well. Monochloroacetic acid is transformed to chloroacetate of sodium and then linked to carboxy magnesium cellulose (CMC) with alkali cellulose. In herbicides, sodium chloroacetate is used as a by-product of monochloroacetic acid.

Expanding requirement for herbicides is anticipated to boost the development of the worldwide industry for monochloroacetic acids. Other chemicals that require this acid in their manufacture include mercapto acetic acid, carcosines, glycolic acid, chloro acetamides, substituted guar-gums, chloroacetic acid esters, coumarin, phenoxy acetic acid, barbituric acid, cyano acetic acid, ethylene diamine etetra acetic acid, malonic acid, amino acetic acids, malono nitrite.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Rise in demand for agrochemicals

  • CMC witnessing as rise in demand

  • Negative effects of exposure to MCAA
