Glyoxylic acid or Oxo-acetic acid is transparent organic solid compound. It occurs naturally or produced synthetically using glyoxal as a primary raw materials. Glyoxylic acid or its downstream products are used in variety of end-use industries. The prominent downstream products of glyoxylic acid include vanillin, p-hydroxyphenylglycine, 2- hydroxyl- phosphine acetic acid, among others.

En use industries of the global glyoxylic acid market comprises personal care & cosmetics ingredient, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, aromas, polymers, and others. The global market is driven by increasing demand in these end use industries. Among all such end use industries, personal care and food & beverage industries are prominently driving the demand of global market.

Allantoin, a glyoxylic acid derivative, is used hair care and skin care products owing to its moisturizing and emulsifying properties. Increasing demand of hair care products such as straightening products, shampoos, conditioners, lotions, and hair creams is expected to drive the demand in personal care industry.

On similar lines, increasing application of vanillin in aromas and flavors in food & beverage industry is another driving factor for the global market. Consequently, the global market is estimated to exhibit CAGR of 5.27% in order to reach USD 849.1 Mn by 2023 end.

Among all the derivatives, allantoin and vanillin segments accounted more than half of the overall glyoxylic acid consumption. This is attributed to their prominent use in personal care and food & beverage industries, respectively. In 2016, allantoin segment accounted for approximate value share of 28.9% in the overall market.

Regional Analysis
