Tartaric Acid Price Trend for the H1 of 2023


The tartaric acid sector showcased mixed price trends in the Asia Pacific region. The market initially struggled with low demand from the beverage and food industries, but the low level of inventories helped the price trend to remain afloat. But soon enough, the stockpiles increased, and the domestic supply of tartaric acid was enough to counter the demand. With the low number of new orders, the prices of tartaric acid declined in the first two quarters of 2023.


The price trend of tartaric acid faced southwards in the first two quarters of 2022 as the demand from the food and beverage industries declined significantly in the European region. Further, the drop in raw material cost and the shutting down of several production plants aided the decline in the prices of tartaric acid.

North America

In North America, the prices of tartaric acid suffered from poor market conditions of the end-user industries. The demand and number of offtakes in the region declined significantly, and traders stopped their buying activities due to the sufficient availability of the product in the region. The strong supply from several nations also negatively impacted tartaric acid's price trend.

Tartaric acid is an organic acid that occurs naturally in fruits, especially grapes. It has a sour taste and is a white, crystalline substance. C4H6O6 is its chemical formula. D-tartaric acid and L-tartaric acid are the two optically active enantiomers of tartaric acid. It is frequently employed as an acidulant and flavoring agent in the food and beverage sector. Tartaric acid is also used in the pharmaceutical business to improve the stability and pH of medications. Because of its chiral nature, it is used in chiral synthesis and as a chemical resolving agent to separate enantiomers.

Production Processes

In this technique, grapes are first treated to give in liquid and solid state. The dregs in solid state are subjected to additional grinding and fermenting processes with liquid dregs to produce vinasse. Along with potassium bitartrate and calcium chloride, calcium tartrate is also removed from the vinasse and crystallized. To produce tartaric acid, the resultant product is dried, concentrated continuously, and concentrated intermittently.
