Salicylic Acid Production Cost Report

Salicylic acid is an organic acid that is anti-inflammatory and exfoliating in nature, which makes it popular in the medical and cosmetic industries. It is one of the prominent ingredients in natural and organic skincare and hair care products. It is utilized in the pharmaceutical sector to create medications that treat a wide range of ailments, such as acne, pain, fever, and inflammation.

Due to its wide range of uses in pharmaceutical products to treat inflammation, pain, etc., it increases its market demand for the pharmaceutical industry. Therefore, the pharmaceutical industry's expansion is pushing up demand for salicylic acid. Moreover, the market demand for this commodity is mostly driven by the increased demand for its natural benefits in medicinal, skincare, and personal care products, which fuels its demand for the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and personal care industries.

Industrial salicylic acid procurement is governed by various factors, including the availability and production cost of its feedstock (including phenol and sodium hydroxide), the market prices of salicylic acid, its distribution (covering transportation and trading activities), logistics, etc. Its demand as a pivotal source for medical, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, and personal care industries has a significant impact on its procurement around the world.

Raw Material for Salicylic Acid Production

According to the Salicylic Acid manufacturing plant project report, the major raw materials for Salicylic Acid production include Phenol-Sodium Hydroxide.

Manufacturing Process of Salicylic Acid

The extensive Salicylic acid production cost report consists of this major industrial manufacturing process:

  • Production from Phenol and Sodium Hydroxide: In this method, phenol and aqueous sodium hydroxide react to produce sodium phenolate. After heating, evaporating, and reacting with carbon dioxide, the solution yields sodium salicylate. Sulfuric acid is then added to further acidify sodium salicylate, resulting in salicylic acid formation.

It is a versatile and widely utilised chemical with numerous medical and aesthetic applications. It is a white crystalline powder with a mild odour. It dissolves in alcohol, ether, and chloroform but very slightly in water.

It has a comparatively low melting point of 158-161°C when compared to several other organic compounds. With a pKa of 2.97, it is a weak acid. When properly maintained, it is very stable, though it can slowly disintegrate over time if exposed to heat or light. It can react with bases and metals but is incompatible with strong reducing agents and oxidising agents.
