DL Tartaric Acid is a colorless and semi-transparent or white powder, with a sour taste. It is widely used in many fields such as foodstuff, medicine, the chemical and light industries etc., and is mainly used to make tartrates (tartaric acid salts), like antimony potassium tartrate, and potassium sodium tartrate. It can be used as a beer vesicant, foodstuff sourness agent, and flavoring etc. Its sourness is 1.3 times of that of citric acid, and it is especially suitable to be a sourness agent of grape juice. It is also very important for the tannage, photograph, glass, enamel and telecommunication equipment industries.

Tartaric Acid is a white crystalline dicarboxylic acid found in many plants, particularly tamarinds and grapes. Tartaric acid is used to generate carbon dioxide through interaction with sodium bicarbonate following oral administration. Carbon dioxide extends the stomach and provides a negative contrast medium during double contrast radiography.

Tartaric acid is an organic acid naturally found in fruits including grapes and tamarind. It is a principal ingredient in wine and provides it with the characteristic tart taste. Tartaric acid is primarily manufactured from natural raw materials; however, it can also be manufactured synthetically from maleic anhydride. Tartaric acid finds applications in the wine, food & beverages, construction, pharmaceutical, chemical, leather tanning, and metal finishing industries. It is used as an acidulant, pH control, and flavorant in wine. Tartaric acid is also used as an anti-microbial agent, anti-caking agent in bakery items and flavorant for fruit juices in the food & beverages industry. In the pharmaceutical industry, it is used as an excipient for drugs with poor solubility at higher pH levels. Tartaric acid is used as an anti-set agent in cement formulations in the construction industry.

DL tartaric acid is very useful in many applications,

·         Tartaric Acid is widely used as antioxidant and acidity regulator in food production.

As antioxidant: in canned food to maintain flavor and appearance.

India Tartaric Acid Market is projected to grow at a robust CAGR due to increasing use of tartaric acid as a preservative in packaged foods coupled with growing use across various end-user industries, such as food & beverages, pharmaceuticals as it acts as an emulsifier and chelating agent. Moreover, the rising adoption of tartaric acid in antacids will drive the growth of the market further.

Based on the type of tartaric acid, synthetic segment is expected to hold the largest market share in the forecast period as tartaric acid produced in the country is chemically synthesised. Based on the application, food & beverage is expected to lead the market in the next five years owing to the widespread applications of tartaric acid as emulsifier and preservative in packaged foods, bakery items, soft-drinks etc.

The tartaric acid market is expected to record a moderate CAGR between 2018 and 2023. Increasing demand from the wine industry in the Asia-Pacific and Latin American regions, coupled with the growing demand for packaged food, is expected to drive the market during the forecast period. The market is primarily driven by the diverse uses of tartaric acid in the food & beverage industry. Owing to the changing lifestyles, the growing demand for packaged food in developing economies around the world is expected to boost market growth during the forecast period.

Tartaric acid is widely used in the pharmaceutical segment. This is owing to its characteristic property of enhancing the taste of medicine, making it the material of choice for use in the pharmaceutical industry. Tartaric acid and its derivatives are widely used in making effervescent salts, which are formed when combined with citrates. The pharmaceutical industry is expected to be the one of the fastest growing segments by end-user industry in the global tartaric acid market due to the rise in medicine demand globally.

The natural tartaric acid segment is projected to be the fastest-growing during the forecast period, due to its high usage in applications such food & beverages, especially in the wine industry, resulting in an exponential increase in the consumption and production. Tartaric acid is mostly used in the wine industry due to the major role it plays in maintaining the chemical stability of the wine, controlling the acidity of wine and its color, and finally in influencing the taste of the finished wine.
