NEW YORK, Nov. 30 /PRNewswire/ — Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Lactic Acid – A Global Market Report

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0164411/Lactic-Acid—A-Global-Market-Report.html

World consumption of lactic acid stands enthused by its use in key industries such as cosmetics, biodegradable plastics and food additives. The recently uncovered potential of lactic acid as a pH balancer in shampoos and soaps, and other alpha hydroxy acid applications, is expected to pep up consumption in this market. Use of lactic acid in biodegradable plastics is expected to gather momentum, given the rising demand for environmentally friendly packaging. Emerging application possibilities are additionally expected to prop up the market’s growth in the upcoming years. Use of lactic acid bacteria in anti microbial compounds, food additives, flavoring agents, and as a substitute for hazardous solvents in industrial applications, will all help ensure steady consumption into the future.

These and other market data and trends are presented in “Lactic Acid: A Global Market Report” by BizAcumen, Inc. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
