Producers are developing bio-based acetic acid to achieve a competitive edge. For instance, In March 2010, Wacker Chemie started its bio-based acetic acid plant in Germany, having an annual capacity of 500 tons. It is indulged in developing new techniques of producing the product such as converting butanediol to ketone and ultimately acetic acid, or formulating acetate from biomass.

The industry will witness some consolidation in future owing to mergers and acquisition. For instance, In 2011, Eastman acquired Sterling Chemical’s acetic acid production division. Companies are indulged in purchasing shares of other organizations such as Saudi International Petrochemical Company planned to acquire equities of International Acetyl Company, Ikarus Petroleum Industries Company and International Vinyl Acetate Company.
