Aspartic Acid Market Growth & Trends

The Global Aspartic Acid Market is expected to reach USD 101.0 million by 2022, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing aspartame demand in the form of artificial sweetener from the food & beverages industry is expected to remain a key driving factor for the global market. A shift in trend towards convenience food & beverage consumption globally is also expected to have a positive influence on market growth over the forecast period. The high cost of major raw materials such as fumaric acid is expected to remain a key challenge for market participants. 

Polyaspartic acid was the largest application segment and accounted for 22.6% of the total market volume in 2014. Increasing demand for polyaspartic acid in the form of biodegradable polymer for replacing polyacrylic acid from major end-use industries such as agriculture, water treatment systems, and petrochemical industry is expected to drive this segment. Polyaspartic acid was closely followed by aspartame which emerged as the second-largest application segment for aspartic acid. Medical is expected to witness the highest growth of 6.2% from 2015 to 2022.
