London, UK (PRWEB) April 25, 2014
In 2012, the worldwide acetic acid production volume climbed to 11.75 million tonnes. In the same year, the USA and the developed countries of the European region maintained the highest operating rates, whilst the Asian region (especially China) kept it rather low. On the whole, the global acetic acid market was still in 2012, primarily due to economic situation in the European region in tandem with poor local demand in Asia. As of 2013, the, world acetic acid totaled around 13.15 million tonnes, the capacity utilization rate was equivalent to nearly 77%. In the same year, the top five acetic acid manufacturing countries (China, the USA, Singapore, Taiwan and the UK) called for slightly above 78% of the global acetic acid output.
In next several years, a number of novel acetic acid capacity introductions are predicted to take place in the emerging countries, particularly China, Brazil and India. The overall demand for the main acetic acid end product, VAM, is growing faster in the developing regions than in the developed ones; this results in the growing need for the construction of new acetic acid production units in those geographies. Meanwhile, the markets of North America and Europe are more mature, and there are no plans to add acetic acid capacities there in the forthcoming years. The global acetic acid production volume is anticipated to go beyond 17.3 million tonnes by 2018.
