Acetic Anhydride
Aceticanhydride

Acetic Anhydride is mainly used for acetylations leading to commercially significant materials. Its largest application is for the conversion of cellulose to cellulose acetate, which is a component of photographic film and other coated materials.

Similarly it is used in the production of aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid), which is prepared by the acetylating of salicylic acid. It is also used as a wood preservative via autoclave impregnation to make longer lasting timber.

Demand for Acetic Anhydride is growing at a burgeoning pace in India. The capacity additions and Productions have increased at a similar pace and have kept pace with the demand. It is however the export of Acetic Anhydride that has boomed in India. This pace is bound to continue as the manufacturing sector in India is set to boom. Jubilant Organosys Limited is one of India's largest manufacturers of Acetic Anhydride. Bulk of the Acetic Anhydride produced in India is consumed by the Cellulose Acetate Industry.

The market for acetic anhydride is mainly driven by huge demand from cellulose acetate. Cellulose acetate is manly consumed in cigarettes. . In terms of demand, North America is the leading region owing to huge demand from cellulose acetate market coupled with huge demand from pharmaceutical industry. However, the market for acetic anhydride is declining in North America region due to strict environmental regulations. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing market for acetic anhydride due to increasing demand from various end-user industries such as pharmaceutical, textiles, and polymers among others. The demand for acetic anhydride is huge from countries such as Japan, China and India. China and Japan were the leading consumers of acetic anhydride in Asia Pacific region. Numerous global manufacturers have started manufacturing cellulose acetate and acetic anhydride due to lower manufacturing and labor costs in China. India is likely to provide better opportunity for acetic anhydride market owing to increasing demand from industries such as pharmaceutical, textile and polymers market.
