Considering the regions, Asia Pacific was a noteworthy regional fumaric acid market on the basis of demand in 2016 and is expected to remain the same in the coming few years. In Asia Pacific, China witnessed the largest fumaric acid market demand owing to huge demand from the food & beverages industry and growth of the plastic industry.

Growing remodeling and construction activities in the Asia Pacific is set to boost the regional fumaric acid demand. Following Asia Pacific is the North America being another considerable regional fumaric acid market and is likely to witness a decline in the demand owing to the stringent government regulations regarding alkyd resin uses. In North America, the U.S. encompasses for the largest market demand for the product. Europe is also likely to foresee a decline in the regional fumaric acid market demand owing to stagnation and market saturation in the end-use industry. Due to growing food & beverages industry in the Middle East, fumaric acid market is set to witness a steady growth in the forecast period.

Stringent environmental regulations associated with unsaturated and alkyd polyester resins in North America and Europe can majorly hamper the growth and impact the fumaric acid market in the forecast period. Furthermore, inhalation of the product may result in irritation and infection in nose and throat resulting in severe cold and sneezing. Over dosage of fumaric acid may also result in kidney damage.

On the basis of application, the global fumaric acid market is segmented as food & beverages, rosin paper sizes, unsaturated polyester resins (UPR), alkyd resins, and others. The product is responsible for flavor enhancement, preservation and maintaining the pH level in food and beverages. The shift in the trend from unhealthy and junk eating to nutritional diet consumption and health consciousness among consumers is likely to influence the food processing industry. Also, the introduction of wide range of flavors in exotic and ethnic food and beverages will uplift the fumaric acid market in the coming years.
