The Global Monochloroacetic Acid Market is segmented on the basis of the Form, Application, End-Use Industry and Region.

On the Basis of the Form, the Global Monochloroacetic Acid Market is segmented into crystalline, liquid, powdered, and flakes. The crystalline form is extensively used due to its ease of handling and operation. Low cost with abundant availability is an added advantage to the crystalline form Monochloroacetic Acid Market growth.

Various application of Monochloroacetic Acid includes carboxyl methyl cellulose, thioglycolic acid, thickening agents, surfactants, and intermediates among others. The carboxyl methyl cellulose (CMC) and thioglycolic acid together hold a major market share due to their extensive use as a plant stabilizer. Furthermore, the conversion of the Monochloroacetic Acid to carboxyl methyl cellulose results in byproduct sodium chloroacetate, which is used in herbicides and fungicides for crop protection. This is expected to drive the demand from the agriculture sector due to lack of arable land and high crop yield. Moreover, the thickening agent segment is highly used in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics & personal care products such as toothpaste and laxatives to stabilize the emulsions. This acid is used as an intermediate for the fusion of indigo dye, which is likely to offer substantial opportunities to the product in the textile industry.

Based on the End-User Industry, the market is segmented into agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, cosmetic & personal care, oil & gas, textiles, plastics, and others. The agrochemicals are leading the market growth owing to the lack of arable land and the increasing demand for food across the globe. The increasing demand for the product in pharmaceuticals and personal care products to offer proper texture is likely to drive the market growth over the assessment period, 2018-2023.
