The market growth is fueled by the increasing demand for MCA for various applications, such as carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), surfactants, and thioglycolic acid (TGA) from end-use industries, such as construction, detergent, textile, paper, cosmetic, paint, oil & gas, and pharmaceutical. This increase in demand is mainly due to the rising GDP, increasing urbanization, growing disposable income, and improved living standard of global consumers. Moreover, the global population growth, which is expected to reach 8.5 billion by 2030, will lead to the increased demand for food thereby increasing the use of crop protection chemicals, such as herbicides and pesticides, which will, in turn, drive the demand for MCA. Crop protection chemicals safeguard crops and ensure higher yield. The demand for crop protection chemicals is high in the APAC and Latin American countries.
