Propionic acid is a three-carbon carboxylic acid manufactured by the hydrocarboxylation of ethylene with the inclusion of a nickel carbonyl catalyst. It prevents the growth of some bacteria and mold due to which it is widely used as preservatives for food for human consumption and animal feed. In addition, it is used to make specialized propionates such as acetate propionate used as thermoplastics. Other applications of propionic acid and derivatives include solvents, and herbicides. Derivatives of propionic acid such as ibuprofen and fenoprofen are widely used in the pharmaceutical industry.

The global industry for propionic acid & derivatives has grown considerably during the past few years and is expected to continue the same trend in the forecast period owing to the growing demand for food preservations, grain preservations and feed preservations. Europe was the largest market of propionic acid & derivatives mostly driven by the ban imposed on the antibiotics in pharmaceutical applications. In addition, the demand for propionic acid & derivatives in the European region is expected to remain strong with the huge demand in the grain and feed preservatives segment. Europe was followed by North America and Asia Pacific with U.S. being the largest single market for propionic acid & derivatives across the globe.
Factors such as growing demand for safe grain and feed preservations are expected to fuel the future growth for the propionic acid and derivatives market. In addition, changing lifestyle has also led to rising demand to augment the shelf life of food products thereby increasing the food preservatives demand, including propionates. However, rising health concerns due to exposure of propionic acid and derivatives causing irritation to skin and eyes has led to continuous monitoring by various health organizations. Niacet Corporation, Eastman Chemical, Perstorp, The Dow Chemical Company, and BASF SE are some of the major players dominating the propionic acid and derivatives industry.
