Growing Application of p-Hydroxycinnamic Acid in Various Industries: The International Coffee Organization (ICO) estimates that 167.26 million bags of coffee are estimated to be consumed worldwide in the coffee year 2020/21, a rise of 1.9% from the 164.13 million bags that were reported in the coffee year 2019/20. High amounts of p-hydroxycinnamic acids (HCAs), a type of natural phenolic component, can be found in a variety of foods including fruits, vegetables, cereals, coffee, tea, and wine. P-Hydroxycinnamic acid is a vital ingredient of coffee, thus its use in the food business is anticipated to increase.
Growing Prevalence of Obesity and Diabetes: By 2025, it is predicted that 2.7 billion adults would be overweight, over 1 billion people would be obese, and 177 million individuals would be extremely obese.
Technology Advancement in p-Hydroxycinnamic Acid: A natural preservative called p-Coumaric Acid has been introduced by Massachusetts-based biotech Conagen as the "clean label" trend spreads across several consumer product categories (PCA). The natural preservatives provided by Blue California, Conagen's marketing partner, are expanded by PCA, which is produced by fermentation.
Growing Cosmetic Industry: The value of the global market for natural cosmetics and personal care products is projected to rise from just under 29 billion dollars in 2021 to around 50 billion dollars in 2027.
Hydroxycinnamic acids are employed as external electron acceptors: As a potential alternative energy source, the metabolism of hydroxycinnamic acids by 19 exclusively heterofermentative lactic acid bacteria strains was studied. The strains of Weissella spp., Lactobacillus brevis, Lactobacillus fermentum, and Leuconostoc mesenteroides, for which the MIC values were the same, were the next most tolerant to hydroxycinnamic acids, followed by Lactobacillus curvatus PE5.
P-Hydroxycinnamic acids are highly in demand in several industries. Their current accessibility is still restricted. Despite the fact that p-hydroxycinnamic acids have several high value-added applications, other than ferulic acid, their industrial scale sourcing is not guaranteed, and their manufacturing costs are still too high for commodity applications.
The p-hydroxycinnamic acid market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end-user into chemical industry, food industry, cosmetic industry, and pharmaceutical industry. Amongst these segments, the chemical industry segment is anticipated to garner a largest revenue of USD 79.7 Million by the end of 2031, up from a revenue of USD 53.7 Million in the year 2021. However, the pharmaceutical industry segment is estimated to grow with a highest CAGR of 4.4% over the forecast period, backed by extensive use of p-hydroxycinnamic acid in medical application. Most of the mouth washers and toothpaste also content this acid. Further it is also being used for treating cancer, and cardiovascular disease. Increasing cases of diabetes is moreover expected to boost the growth of the market. There were 1.4 million new cases of diabetes identified in 2019. It is estimated that, over 37.3 million Americans, or one in ten, have diabetes.
