Formaldehyde is emerging as a key building block in the production of various resins, including urea-formaldehyde, phenol-formaldehyde, and melamine-formaldehyde resins, that are being widely used in the production of wood composite materials, laminates, coatings, and adhesives. Thereby, with the construction and furniture industries continuing to grow, the demand for these resins is expected to increase substantially in the near future.

Moreover, the increasing focus on the development of new alternatives, eco-friendly binders, and adhesives by key market companies to reduce the use of formaldehyde due to its health and environmental concerns could also generate lucrative opportunities for the market over the coming years.

However, stringent environmental regulations and emission standards set by government agencies and regulatory authorities and growing compliance with such regulations that require additional measures and investments, leading to increased production costs, are among the key factors hampering the market growth.

By Function Analysis

Flavoring Agents segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022

The flavoring agents segment accounted for the largest share. The growth of the segment market is highly attributed to increasing consumer proliferation for unique and exciting flavors in their food & beverage products, along with the surging popularity of convenience and ready-to-eat food products with exotic flavors to enhance their taste and appeal. There are a large number of consumers globally seeking food products with clean labels and natural ingredients; thereby, flavoring agents derived from natural sources such as herbs, spices, and fruits are highly preferred by both consumers and food manufacturers all over the world.

The aroma enhancers segment is expected to grow at the highest growth rate during the anticipated period, which is mainly attributable to the growing importance of aroma enhancers among product developers who are looking to create distinctive and unique flavors and also extend the shelf life of their products through masking off-flavors and aromas that might develop during storage.  

By Purity Analysis

≥95% segment held the significant market share in 2022

The ≥95% segment held a significant market share, which is majorly driven by its growing adoption across industries due to its wide range of robust properties, such as high solubility and better chemical resistance, as compared to others available in the market. Apart from this, it is being widely used in various types of agrochemicals such as fertilizers, fungicides, and fumigants, which results in greater demand and need for products across the segment market.

Furthermore, numerous new entrants into the market are investing heavily in research & development activities to drive product innovation and introducing new formulations, grades, and applications with greater purity levels that address specific industry needs and offer enhanced performance, which is further anticipated to create significant growth opportunities for the segment market.  

By End Use Analysis

Nutraceuticals & pharmaceuticals segment is expected to witness highest growth

The nutraceuticals & pharmaceuticals segment is expected to grow at the highest growth rate during the projected period, which is mainly attributable to increasing consumer focus on health & wellness and greater preference for natural and alternative healthcare solutions along with the growing global aging population that requires dietary supplements and functional foods incorporated with natural ingredients like vernaldehyde.  

  • For instance, as per a report published by the World Health Organization, the world’s population aged 60 years and above is expected to increase dramatically from 1 billion in 2020 to approx. 1.4 billion by 2030. At that time, 1 in every 6 people worldwide will be aged 60 years and over, and the number of aged populations is projected to continue to grow significantly over the next 50 years.

The growing advancements in pharmaceutical research and development that led to the discovery and creation of new drugs and therapies and also the continuous improvements of currently existing ones and rising cases of several chronic diseases like cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and obesity spurred the demand for products which offer preventive and therapeutic benefits.
