The global citric acid market is expected to reach USD 5.73 billion by 2024 driven by its increasing use in food & beverages and household detergents & cleaners. The growth of these end-use industries, particularly in emerging economies of Asia Pacific region, is anticipated to boost the growth of the chemical over the projected period.
