ALBANY, NY - High production costs associated with petroleum-based succinic acid are a key challenge for industry participants, which leads to enhanced focus on the development and commercialization of bio-based succinic acid. However, with the advent of bio-derived succinic acid, the cost of production is expected to decline, which is expected to further fuel the demand for succinic acid globally. Bio-based succinic acid is gaining popularity due to increased government intervention to reduce industrial waste and air pollutants.

A new report released by Market Research Reports, Succinic Acid Market for 1,4-BDO, Resin, Coatings,Lubricants and De-Icing Solutions Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, looks at the global market for succinic acid.

The report covers the demand for succinic acid in various regions that are broadly categorized as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW).
