The top three segments based on application for the global salicylic
acid market are discussed below:

Global salicylic acid market by pharmaceuticals

is used in the pharmaceutical industry as an antiseptic,
disinfectant, and anti-fungal agent. The predominantly derived drug
compound is aspirin, which is used to restrain body pain, fever, and
inflammation. Also, salicylic acid is used for the treatment of skin
diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, cancer, and to prevent
heart strokes.

According to Kshama Upadhyay, a lead specialty
research analyst from Technavio, “A significant
amount of salicylic acid is predominantly used in the manufacture of
aspirin. Furthermore, aspirin capacity expansions are also taking place.
Hence, increasing cardiovascular death rates and increasing spending on
medicines are likely to drive the demand for aspirin demand. This, in
turn, will lead to the inevitable growth of the global salicylic acid by
pharmaceuticals during the forecast period.”

Global salicylic acid market by cosmetics

Skincare products, such as cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen, anti-acne
creams, body wash, primer, and foundation, act as a keratolytic to treat
acne, congested pores, uneven skin tone, and oily skin. Due to the oil
soluble property of salicylic acid, it penetrates the skin pores easily
and results in the exfoliation of the skin.

“Haircare products, such as conditioners, shampoos, hair sprays, and
hair colors, help in treating the scalp. The amount of salicylic acid
recommended for use in leave-on products is 1% and in rinse-off products
is 2%. When used in shampoos, salicylic acid treats dandruff by soothing
the scalp and softening scaly skin, making it easier to remove when
washed,” says Kshama.

Global salicylic acid market by food and preservative and textiles

Some of the other major applications of salicylic acid include textiles
and preservatives. Salicylic acid is used as an additive, predominantly
in artificial flavoring and aromatic purposes. It is also used as a
preservative in several food items, such as meat, poultry, seafood,
baked goods, beverages, candy, chewing gums, condiments, gelatins and
puddings, and ice cream, in the food and beverage industry.

Salicylic acids are used in viscous fabrics for the synthesis of dyes
and to achieve anti-bacterial properties. Salicylic acid and its
derivatives, such as methyl salicylate, weakens the respiration of
bacteria called tubercle bacillus that is responsible for tuberculosis.
Thus, the use of salicylic acid helps in minimizing bacterial infection.
