Market Analysis and Insights
Acidulants are chemical compounds that give a tart, sour, or acidic flavor to foods or enhance the perceived sweetness of foods. Acidulants also find major applications in metal manufacturing, textile industry, chemical manufacturing industry, etc. Acidulants can also function as leavening agents and emulsifiers in some Pharmaceutical products. Though acidulants can lower pH, they differ from acidity regulators, which are food additives specifically intended to modify food stability or enzymes within it. Typical acidulants are acetic acid (for instance, in pickles, chemical industry) and citric acid. Many beverages, such as colas, contain phosphoric acid. Phosphoric acid also used in manufacturing of fertilizers.
Data Bridge Market Research analyses that the Asia-Pacific acidulants market will grow at a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period of 2022 to 2029.

Asia-Pacific Acidulants Market Dynamics
- Growing demand for convenience food products is likely to favor food acidulants industry growth
Acidulants are the key ingredient used in the manufacturing of convenience food to add a refreshing flavor, improved texture and tartness, and enhance the taste of the product. With the increased demand for enhanced convenience/ready-to-eat food due to the busy lifestyle and changing bung preferences of consumers, food processing manufacturers are demanding more acidulants to add to the food product to fulfill the demands.
- Wide use of citric acid and malic acid in emerging alcoholic as well as non-alcoholic beverage applications
In most beverages, citric acid is the first choice to be used as an acidulant. The reason behind this is the specific, relatively mild to slightly sharp sourness and the refreshing effect on most of the fruit flavors. Furthermore, malic acid is used when strong flavor enhancement is expected and mostly in combination with citric acid. Other than these acidulants, phosphoric and succinic acid is also used in beverage applications. Phosphoric acid is mostly used in carbonated beverages such as Cola to bring a specific taste profile and strong effect on pH. All these factors are driving the growth of Asia-Pacific acidulants market.
- Rise in demand for acidulants such as Phosphoric acid in ferlizers industry
About 90% of the phosphoric acid produced is used to make fertilizers. It is mainly converted into three phosphate salts which are used as fertilizers. Growing demand of food across the globe has boosted demand for various fertilizers so that using fertilizers can improve the yield of crops. Thus, fertilizers industry is driving growth of global acidulants market
Increasing demand for acidulants from the rising food processing industry in emerging economies such as india and china
The food processing industry is consistently growing in countries such as India and China, owing to increased demand for convenience food, ready-to-eat food, instant beverages, processed meat products, confectioneries, and others. The busy lifestyle of consumers increases disposable income so that consumers spend more money and urge to taste new and better food products with different flavors.
Acidulants help create the refreshing bite in a sports drink, the creamy meltability in cheese, the gelled texture in jellies and other food items, which increases the demand for acidulants in the food processing industry and creates an opportunity for the acidulants market.
- Issues arising due to over usage of phosphate-based products
Phosphorus is found naturally in many foods, and phosphoric acid is used as an acidulant. Therefore, most people get enough phosphorus in their diet. The recommended daily amount (RDA) of phosphorus needed for the normal bodily function is 700 mg. It can easily be obtained from natural food sources. Foods that are high in protein (for instance, meat, beans, eggs, chicken, and fish) are usually high in phosphorus as well. This means additional phosphoric acid from processed food and soda is more than the body needs it.
However, due to the increasing consumption of unhealthy and preserved food among people, other has been a higher intake of phosphoric acid than the normal level.
- One soda may have up to 500 mg of phosphoric acid
- People who take 4,000 mg per day of phosphorus are considered at high risk for negative health effects associated with phosphorus
