What is Citric Acid

Citric Acid is a natural occurring fruit acid, produced commercially by microbial fermentation of carbohydrate substrate. It was first found by Jaber Bin Hayyan in the 8th century A. D. it is the most widely used organic acidulant and pH- control agent in foods, beverages, pharmaceuticals and technical applications.

Types of Citric Acid

Citric acid monohydrates (C6H8O7.H2O) and anhydrous (C6H8O7), occur as a colourless crystalline powder. They are odourless substances with a strongly acidic taste. They are both chemically stable if stored at ambient temperatures. In its monohydrate form citric Acid is more hygroscopic than in its anhydrous form. The

markets

The utilization of citric acid in the various industries in Saudi Arabia has grown significantly in the past 10 to 15 years. Approximately US$11 billion of food and beverages are imported.
Saudi Arabia has a significant demand potential for food and beverages industries.
With new food and beverages industries setting up in the country, additional demand for citric acid will be created.
The total local and regional (excluding Iran) demand for citric acid is met through import primarily from China and Europe. The total import of citric acid in the KSA, UAE, Syria, Turkey, Egypt and Pakistan was approximately 94,000 tons in 2015.
The Kingdom's and other regional citric acid market is growing at 8-10% annually that is far above the global growth of 5%.
Citric acid is an acidulate that is used in a wide range of sectors such as beverages, food, pharmaceutical, industries, personal care, and cleaners & detergents. There is a constant growth in these sectors mainly food and beverages.
During the past six years the annualized growth has been 5% worldwide. The total production capacity worldwide of citric acid is around 1.6 million tons.
Population expansion, increased usage of beverages and increased purchasing power of consumers are the main demand drivers.

industry

Very little citric acid product is sold in the international market as technical grade (lower quality for industrial use) or sold in bulk. The majority of sales will need to comply with food and pharmaceutical standards, and in both cases manufacturing is strictly controlled.
Pharmaceutical sales will have to meet both GMP (good manufacturing practice) standards and quality standards laid down, for example by the British or US Pharmacopeia BP or USP. The Company will adhere to these standards.
What determines a successful project is the ability to source low-cost raw materials and energy and to be able to obtain and continue to develop biological strains with high yields. Potentially, a plant in Saudi Arabia could have strategic access to both the current critical factors i.e. very low cost energy, and potentially referentially priced raw materials from the local market.
