Wood Vinegar Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2017 - 2025
Pyroligneous acid, commonly known as wood vinegar, is created from wood and plant materials, using a process known as destructive distillation. The core ingredients of wood vinegar include acetone, methanol, and acetic acid, and was historically used to produce acetic acid on large scales. Currently, the scope of use of wood vinegar stretches across a large number of application segments. One of the more common uses of wood vinegar goes in animal feed. Wood vinegar is an excellent choice when it comes to organic farming, as an additive to animal feedstock as well as a pesticide and fertilizer. Several organizations are supporting the use of wood vinegar amid the growing trend of organic farming, thereby creating added demand. The industry for char generation is a supportive force behind the organic production of wood vinegar and the booming demand experienced by the former is expected to help the global wood vinegar market in general. Additionally, wood vinegar is a high density fluid that bears a positive perspective when it comes to transportation of large quantities, thereby falling perfectly into place within an existing agriculture infrastructure in most countries.
Wood vinegar is also getting recommended more and more for human treatment against commonplace issues such as acid reflux, foul odors, and an overall promotion of good bowel and liver health. Some studies also point to the lowering of cholesterol levels through a regular consumption of wood vinegar. It is also a common remedy against external irritations and inflammations, such as those caused by contact with poison ivy.
The global wood vinegar market is expected to grow at a robust pace between 2017 and 2025. While it has been around for many years now, the market has been able to gain significant pace in emerging nations across Asia Pacific as they show more dependence on the agriculture sector. Wood vinegar, also known as liquid smoke, is a byproduct of biochar or charcoal production. Obtained through carbonization it is a dark liquid and witnesses high demand due to its bactericidal effect, which in turn helps in root stimulation.
