Given the characteristics of the market, we triangulated the outcome on the basis of three different types of analyses, based on supply side, consumer spending and economic envelope. However, forecasting the market in terms of various citric acid segments and regions is more a matter of quantifying expectations and identifying opportunities rather than rationalizing them after the forecast has been completed.    

It is imperative to note that in an ever-fluctuating global economy, we not only conduct forecasts in terms of CAGR, but also analyse on the basis of key parameters, such as Year-on-Year (Y-o-Y) growth, to understand the predictability of the market and to identify the right opportunities in the citric acid market. Another key feature of this report is the analysis of all key citric acid market segments and sub-segments, regional adoption, revenue forecast in terms of absolute dollar and volume forecast in terms of absolute unit. This is traditionally overlooked while forecasting the market. However, absolute dollar and unit opportunity are critical in assessing the level of opportunity that a provider can look to achieve, as well as to identify potential resources, from a sales and delivery perspective, present in the citric acid market.
