Azelaic Acid Market Trends




  • Growing adoption from skincare products is driving the market growth




The expanding demand for skincare products that are organic and natural. Customers are searching for natural and organic skincare products as they become more conscious of the possible hazards connected to synthetic ones. The market is expanding as a result of the rising incidence of skin disorders. Azelaic acid has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for skin problems like rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and melasma, which are growing increasingly prevalent. Acid-based products are expected to become more and more in demand as these situations become more common.


It is anticipated that rising demand for biolubricants will support azelaic acid's market expansion. Lubricants frequently use azelaic acid as a feedstock. Azelaic acid is produced using bio-based feedstock and is being utilized more and more in the production of biolubricants. Azelaic acid demand is anticipated to increase in tandem with the growing need for biolubricants. Lubricants of the past were made of petroleum-based oil and had a low degree of degradability. Furthermore, the accumulation of petroleum-based lubricants in water bodies and the harm they do to aquatic life pose environmental dangers. Thus, it is anticipated that in the near future, demand for biolubricants will be driven by growing awareness of environmentally friendly lubricant solutions. Over the course of the forecast period, the worldwide azelaic acid market is anticipated to rise due to the growing need for environmentally friendly substitutes for lubricants based on petroleum. For instance, because they have higher flashpoints, constant viscosities, and lower emissions of oil mist and vapor, biolubricants are safer than petroleum-based lubricants (Department of Ecology, Washington, U.S., 2011).


The growing use of these acids in the pharmaceutical sector is another driver of market expansion for azelaic acid. It is utilized in skincare items as well as in the treatment of several illnesses like hyperpigmentation and rosacea. The rising incidence of these illnesses is predicted to drive significant growth in the pharmaceutical sector by driving up demand for medications with acidic ingredients. It also serves as a food preservative, which promotes expansion in the food sector. Thus, driving the azelaic acid market revenue.
