Wine is also expected to witness the highest growth rate of 5.7% from 2014 to 2020.
Further key findings from the study suggest:
Global tartaric acid market demand was 60.56 kilo tons in 2013 and is expected to reach 87.18 kilo tons by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2014 to 2020.
Europe emerged as the largest regional market and accounted for 39.4% of the total market volume in 2013.
