Global Monochloroacetic Acid Market to be dominated by utilization of monochloroacetic acid in agriculture industry through 2028

Initiatives taken by the government to support the production of monochloroacetic acid are the major drivers for the Global Monochloroacetic Acid Market.


According to TechSci Research report, “Monochloroacetic acid Market –Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition, Opportunity and Forecast, 2018-2028”, the Global Monochloroacetic Acid (MCA) Market has valued at USD 868.52 million in 2022 and is anticipated to project robust growth in the forecast period with a CAGR of 3.30% through 2028. This can be ascribed to collaborations and partnerships among leading companies with a diverse approach to merge the expertise of individual companies and to strengthen their position in the market.

Due to the increasing demand for food and biofuels, the agricultural industry heavily relies on monochloroacetic acid for various applications, particularly in the manufacturing of herbicides and agrochemicals. Herbicides play a vital role in modern agriculture by effectively controlling weeds and ensuring optimal crop growth. Monochloroacetic acid is extensively used in herbicide production due to its ability to inhibit weed growth without significantly affecting crops. The growing utilization of monochloroacetic acid in herbicide manufacturing is expected to contribute substantially to the global market's growth. The production of agrochemicals, including herbicides, relies heavily on monochloroacetic acid. With the increasing need for higher agricultural yields, the agriculture industry is increasingly adopting monochloroacetic acid to develop more effective and targeted formulations. These formulations enable farmers to combat pests, diseases, and weeds more efficiently, ultimately improving crop productivity. In addition to herbicides, monochloroacetic acid finds applications in other agricultural sectors as well. It is utilized in the production of fungicides and insecticides, which help protect crops from fungal infections and insect pests. The versatility of monochloroacetic acid makes it an essential component in various agricultural chemicals, providing effective solutions for crop protection and promoting sustainable farming practices. Furthermore, governments are actively promoting research and development in the field of agrochemicals. They invest in scientific studies, innovation centers, and collaborations between researchers, farmers, and industry stakeholders. These initiatives contribute to the development of new and improved formulations, optimized application techniques, and sustainable farming practices, all of which rely on the utilization of monochloroacetic acid. Collaborations between different stakeholders are emerging as a significant driver of growth in the global monochloroacetic acid market. One key area where collaborations are driving the monochloroacetic acid market is in the development of sustainable agricultural solutions. With increasing concerns about environmental impact, there is a growing demand for organic monochloroacetic acid in the agriculture industry. Collaborations between monochloroacetic acid manufacturers, agricultural experts, and farmers are leading to the development of eco-friendly agrochemical formulations that promote sustainable farming practices.

In a recent collaboration based on the monochloroacetic acid market, a global company has partnered with Atul Ltd, an integrated chemical company based in Gujarat, India. The collaboration aims to enhance the production of monochloroacetic acid (MCA) and meet the growing demand for this chemical compound. This partnership is expected to contribute to the expansion of the global monochloroacetic acid market, which is projected to reach a value of USD 1,517.49 million by 2032. However, volatility in economy and environmental regulations are expected to slow down the growth of the market in the coming years.

The Global Monochloroacetic Acid Market segmentation is based on Form, Application, By Company, and Region

Based on Application, Surfactant held the largest market share in the forecast period. This can be attributed to its extensive usage as foaming agents, which are substances that create foam and bubbles, dispersants that aid in the even distribution of particles, emulsifiers that help mix substances that do not naturally mix, detergents that remove dirt and grease, and wetting agents that reduce surface tension. The increasing need for surfactants for cleaning purposes in various sectors, including industrial, commercial, and residential, is expected to drive significant growth of this segment in the global market.

Some of the major companies operating in the Global Monochloroacetic Acid Market include:

  • Denak Co., Ltd.
  • Henan HDF Chemical Company, Ltd.
  • Jiangxi Biochem Co., Ltd.
