Acetic acid (CH3COOH) is an organic chemical compound which gives a sour taste and pungent smell like vinegar. It occurs as both free and combined, in the form of esters of various alcohols in many plants and has also been detected in animal secretions. It is an important chemical reagent and industrial chemical used in the manufacturing of various other chemicals that serve a number of industries such as textiles, inks, rubbers, plastics, etc. During 2014-2018, the global acetic acid market grew at a CAGR of around 6%. Presently, vinyl acetate monomer (VAM- an intermediate in the production of a range of chemical derivatives) is one of the most rapidly growing application areas of acetic acid accounting for the majority of its total global consumption.
