Global Dehydroacetic acid (DHS) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Dehydroacetic acid (DHS) is an organic compound with the formula CH3CHOCH2. It is a colorless liquid that is soluble in water and ethanol. DHS is used as an agent for preventing bacterial growth in foods and cosmetics.


Antienzyme is a protein-digesting enzyme that speeds up the process of breaking down proteins into amino acids. It is used in laboratories to study the mechanism of protein breakdown for various purposes such as determining the optimal pH value for protein digestion, measuring rates of incorporation into proteins, and studying the effects of drugs and other chemicals on enzymes. The product also finds application in biotechnology as an assay reagent owing to its ability to catalyze reactions between labeled compounds & their respective substrates.


Plasticizer is a colorless liquid that is added to the formulation of polymers. It helps in increasing flexibility and toughness of plasticizers, which makes them suitable for use in injection molding, extrusion, and blow molding processes. The global demand for plasticizer is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to its usage in various end-use industries such as automotive & transportation, building & construction along with consumer goods industry.

Application Insights:

The global market is segmented by application into cosmetics, medicine, personal care products, perfumes and fragrances and others. The other applications include food preservatives and deodorants. The cosmetics segment dominated the global market in 2017 owing to increasing demand for skin-care products globally. This trend will continue over the forecast period due to rising consumer awareness regarding skin health along with product preferences that have been molded by years of exposure to commercialized advertising campaigns.

DHS has a wide range of applications in cosmetic formulations including as preservatives against microbial growth during storage as well as during transit of cosmetic products across different layers of packaging i.e.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing regional market with a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing demand for beauty and personal care products along with rising geriatric population in this region. The presence of major cosmetics manufacturers including L'Or©al Group, Unilever, Beiersdorf AG, and Johnson & Johnson is anticipated to drive the regional market over the forecast period.

North America was estimated as one of the largest markets for dehydroacetic acid in 2016 due to high demand from end-use industries such as food preservatives and pharmaceuticals coupled with stringent regulations regarding use of biocides in domestic formulations that are not authorized by EPA. In addition, high consumer awareness regarding health safety issues associated with conventional synthetic chemicals has resulted into increased adoption rate for DHS over other alternatives such as Bisphenol A (BPA).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for organic products: The global market for organic products is projected to grow at a CAGR of more than 14% from 2016 to 2021. This growth is driven by the increasing awareness among consumers about the benefits of organic products, such as no or low pesticide residues, environmental sustainability, and animal welfare. Dehydroacetic acid (DHS) is an important ingredient in many organic cosmetic and personal care formulations.
  • Growing popularity of natural ingredients: Consumers are increasingly looking for natural ingredients in cosmetics and personal care products. Dehydroacetic acid (DHS) is a naturally derived ingredient that meets this demand. It has been shown to be effective against bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms without being harmful to humans or the environment.
  • Rising consumer awareness about anti-aging benefits: A growing number of consumers are becoming aware of the anti-aging benefits offered by dehydroacetic acid (DHS). This ingredient can help delay signs of aging by inhibiting the growth of bacteria that can cause skin damage and inflammation .
