Isobutyric acid is a short chain fatty acid or carboxylic characteristic compound with sweat test and pleasant smell. Isobutyric acid has high solubility in ethanol, ether and organic solvents however it is slightly soluble in water. There are several routs for manufacturing of isobutyric acid such as it can be prepared by oxidation of isobutyraldehyde. It can also be prepared by koch reaction which involves high pressure hydrocarboxylation from propylene. At commercial scale, isobutyric acid can also be made by means of engineered bacteria using a sugar feedstock
The global Isobutyric Acid market is expected to grow at healthy CAGR during forecast period of 2018-2023. One of the factors that drive the global Isobutyric Acid market is growing use of it in applications such as food and flavors, perfumes because of its pleasant smell and sweat test. Another factor that drives the isobutyric acid market is growing use of it as an ingredient in animal feed and manufacturing of chemical intermediates.
