Market Overview:

The global difluoroacetic acid market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for difluoroacetic acid in pharmaceutical and pesticide intermediate applications. Additionally, rising awareness about benefits of using difluoroacetic acid over other organic acids is also propelling the growth of this market. However, volatility in prices of raw materials used for manufacturing difluoroacetic acid may restrain the growth of this market to some extent during the forecast period. On basis on type, purity below 97% held majority share in global DFA Market and is projected to grow at significant rate owing to its low cost as compared with other types available in market Purity greater than or equal 97% segment is anticipated witness highest CAGR over forecast period due high quality.

Global Difluoroacetic Acid Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Difluoroacetic acid is an organic compound with the molecular formula CF2=COOH. It is a colorless liquid that is soluble in water and has a pungent odor. Difluoroacetic acid is used as a solvent, an intermediate in the production of other compounds, and as an herbicide.


PurityBelow97% is a global supplier of Difluoroacetic acid (DFA), also known as 2,4-difluorobenzyl alcohol or just plain old "fluorocarbon" for short. Fluorocarbons are organic compounds that contain only one functional group (carbon) and all the other elements necessary to make a complete molecule.

PurityGreater than or equal to97%:

Difluoroacetic acid is a chemical compound. It's a colorless, highly pungent, corrosive organic liquid that's soluble in water and ethanol.

Application Insights:

The global demand for difluoroacetic acid was dominated by its use in the manufacture of pharmaceutical intermediates and other applications. The pharmaceutical intermediate application segment accounted for a revenue share of over 60% in 2017 owing to the extensive usage as an intermediate chemical in the production of numerous medicines.

Difluoroacetic acid is widely used as a pesticide intermediate and is anticipated to witness significant growth on account of increasing demand from key end-use industries such as agrochemical, forestry, marine, and others. The growing environmental concerns regarding pesticides have resulted in increased focus on sustainable agriculture practices that are likely to positively influence industry growth over the coming years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2017 and accounted for a volume share of over 45%. The region is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing demand from major end-use industries, such as pharmaceuticals, pesticides and food & beverages. China is one of the largest producers as well as consumers of difluoroacetic acid globally. It also produces a large number ofCF3O2H2 (also known as 3-fluoroorotic acid) which has been identified by IUPAC formula C7H6F2O4 that is used in producing CF3 gas used in chemical vapor deposition (CVD) furnace coating process for semiconductors manufacturing along with other countries such as U.S., Japan, Germany, Korea etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for Difluoroacetic Acid in agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries as a precursor to various drugs and herbicides.
  • Growing application of Difluoroacetic Acid in water treatment plants owing to its excellent properties such as high solubility, non-toxicity, and biodegradability.
  • Rising demand for Difluoroacetic Acid from the rubber industry as an intermediate for the production of specialty rubbers.
  • Increasing use of Difluoroacetic Acid in perfumes, flavors, and food additives due to its pleasant odor and flavor profile.
