Global Acetic Anhydride Market Trends:

Extensive application of acetic anhydride in the tobacco and pharmaceutical industries is the key factor driving the market. In the tobacco industry, cellulose acetate, a resultant product of the combination of cellulose and acetic anhydride, finds application in the production of cigarette filter tow. Filtered cigarettes reduce the amount of smoke, tar and other fine particles inhaled while smoking. Owing to the increasing awareness regarding the ill effects of smoking, these cigarettes have emerged as a preferable recourse.

On the other hand, the pharmaceutical industry employs acetic anhydride in the production of common medicines including aspirin, paracetamol and vitamins. Escalating incidences of diseases across the globe along with a significant rise in the geriatric population have been contributing significantly to the thriving pharmaceutical industry. Furthermore, TAED is widely employed in the laundry and cleaning industry as a bleach activator, which is providing a thrust to the market growth.
