Asia-Pacific was followed by Europe and North America as the second and third largest markets for formic acid.

Formic acid is the simplest carboxylic acid. In nature, formic acid is found in the stings and bites of many insects including bees and ants. The principal use of formic acid is as a preservative and antibacterial agent in livestock feed. When sprayed fresh, it arrests certain decay processes and causes the feed to retain its nutritive value longer.

This formic acid is manufactured and imported in the European Economic Area in 10,00-100, 000 tonnes per year and holds a high share in the overall market demand. Additionally, formic acid market players are gaining formidable demand influx from the flourishing leather, textile, and agricultural industries. The emphasis on crop production and farmers to cater to the burgeoning food demand is projected to boost the market in the near future. This is nontoxic acid when used in lower concentration and hence used as a consumer base for washing and cleaning products, leather treatment products, textile treatment products, dyes, coating products, metal surface treatment products as well as in industrial site for production of thermoplastic, chemicals, textile, leather, fur and plastic products. 

Growing demand preservatives and feed additives coupled with increasing demand from major end user industries is expected to be the key growth drivers for formic acid during the period of study. Moreover, this substance is being reviewed for use as a biocide in the EEA and Switzerland for disinfection, veterinary hygiene, food and animal feeds, drinking water, product preservation, preservation for liquid systems, controlling slimes.
