According to Market Research Future Analysis, cumulatively the global formic acid market was valued at USD 516.9 million in 2016 expanding at a CAGR of 4.94% during forecast period. Formic acid market is segmented according to production method and applications. According to production method carbonylation of methanol accounts for highest percentage of share. This processes is associated with BASF SE and Kemira. With having superior properties such as powerful pH it is used in organic acids. Thus, to control the pH formic acid is used in many chemical processes. Owing to more acidic nature, the prominent industrial application of formic acid is rubber & leather production as it can deeply increase the absorbing capability and also known as best coagulant in rubber manufacturing. Formic acid is extensively used in silage preservatives and animal feed to reduce bacterial content and maintain nutritional value of the feed to ensure animal performance. Europe has banned the usage of antibiotics in the year 2006. These is followed by North America as this region is on the verge to ban on antibiotics owing to increasing awareness among the consumers about health safety. Hence, changing climatic conditions are negatively impacting various industries such as animal feed, preservatives and leather & rubber industry. This can restraint the market growth in coming years. Moreover, grade having higher toxicity can also hamper the global formic acid market growth. However, product diversification and improved technology in feed additive substantially provide opportunities to players such as BASF opened a new formic acid production plant in Geismar, Louisiana with annual capacity of 50,000 tons.

Regional Analysis
