Glycolic acid belongs to a group of active compounds known as AHAs (alpha hydroxyl acids), which are primarily found in vegetables and fruits such as sugarcane, pineapple, unripe grapes, etc. Glycolic acid possesses the smallest molecules in the group; this enables quick and easy penetration of human skin. It is therefore very effective in skin treatment and is widely used in cosmetic formulations. Due to the increased adoption of personal care products, the glycolic acid market is witnessing significant growth. Glycolic acid is also used for the manufacturing of poly glycolic acid (PGA) and in absorbable sutures for surgical/medical applications. Improving healthcare standards, particularly in emerging economies, are expected to accelerate the demand for these sutures. This would, in turn, boost the demand for glycolic acid. The key players operating in this market are Chemsolv, Inc., DuPont, Phibro Animal Health Corporation, CrossChem LP, Parchem, Sigma-Aldrich, Phibro Animal Health Corporation, Griffin International Inc. and Crosschem LP.
The global glycolic acid market is segmented on the basis of application and geography.
