Acetic Anhydride Market Report and Forecast 2017-2022


Acetic anhydride is a clear and colourless liquid with a very pungent, penetrating, vinegar-like odour and is widely used as a reagent in organic synthesis. With a chemical formula- (CH3CO)2O, this chemical compound combines with water to form acetic acid and is commonly abbreviated as Ac2O. It does not occur naturally and was first synthesised by C. F. Gerhardt in 1852 when he reacted benzoyl chloride with molten potassium acetate. Today, it is one of the most important organic intermediates and currently finds applications in research and manufacturing. During 2009-2016, the global acetic anhydride market grew at a CAGR of around 5.6% and is expected to exhibit a steady CAGR. The global acetic anhydride industry is mainly driven by the cigarette tow market, which requires cellulose acetate flakes which account for the majority of the global acetic anhydride consumption.
