The Global Acidity Regulators Market Size is expected to reach USD 14.9 Billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period 2022 to 2032.


Acidity regulators are essential ingredients used as food additives in a variety of foods and beverages to maintain the acidity or alkalinity of the food. Organic acids or mineral acids, bases, neutralizing agents, and buffering agents are examples of acidity regulators. There are several acidity regulators on the market, including citric acid, phosphoric acid, acetic acid, maleic acid, and lactic acid, each with unique qualities and applications. Additionally, acidity regulators are used as food preservative additives, preventing microbial development and thereby increasing the shelf life of certain packaged food items such as cheese and meat. Food acidity regulators with preservative, stabilizing, antibacterial, and pH-regulating properties, such as acetic acid, citric acid, lactic acid, malic acid, and phosphoric acid, extend the shelf life of food and beverages.

Driving Factors

The rising demand for at-home food preservation is the primary driving factor for expanding the global market. In food products, acidulates can serve as preservatives by controlling the pH levels. For instance, cheese and yogurt products frequently contain lactic acid as a preservative. As a result, there has been an increase in demand for home food preservation on the market. An increase in consumers choosing to control not just what they eat but also their food source is evidenced by a surge in consumers who choose home-preserved food. Increasing use of acidity regulators across different industries-acetic acid is widely utilized in the textile industry as a buffering agent in dye baths as well as for the process of neutralization Many consumers use this to control PH levels in fabric dyeing. The most commonly used organic acid, glacial acetic acid, is commonly used in printing.


Restraining Factors        

Over-use of acidity regulators causes various health problems. It is anticipated that overuse of acidity regulators that result in health issues such as teeth erosions, skin damage, allergies, and many others will restrain global acidity regulators market growth. The overuse of these modulators is thought to be a restriction to the growth of the acidity regulators market since it causes different health issues, including diarrhoea, nausea, and an unsettled stomach.


Market Segmentation

By Type Insights

The citric acid segment dominates the market with the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on type, the global acidity regulators market is segmented into acetic acid, citric acid, lactic acid, malic acid, phosphoric acid, and others.
