According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Malic Acid Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026″, the global malic acid market reached a volume of 88.5 Kilotons in 2020.
Malic acid is a dicarboxylic organic compound with the molecular formula C4H6O5. It is a white crystal or crystalline powder which is soluble in water and ethanol. It is synthesized in all living organisms and offers a pleasant, sour taste to fruits like apples, grapes, apricots, blackberries, peaches, pears, strawberries and mangoes. Since this acid effectively absorbs moisture and has antimicrobial properties, it is used to increase the shelf life of packaged food and bakery items. It is also utilized as a preservative, an acidulant for pH control and food additive for flavor enhancement. Apart from food and beverage applications, it is extensively employed across industries like pharmaceutical, soap and detergent as well as cosmetic and personal care.
