Formic Acid is the simplest carboxylic acid and has the chemical formula HCOOH. This chemical is naturally produced by several species of ants – its name derives from the old Latin name for ants, formica. The ancients utilized methods such as distillation of ant bodies to extract Formic Acid. While we still depend on ants and other related insects for a significant amount of the total Formic Acid produced, commercial production of Formic Acid has also gained speed due to the various applications of Formic Acid.
Formic Acid is often used in animal diets, as it improves the bioavailability of nutrients in the animal diet and thus enhances their diet. Meat quality is enhanced using Formic Acid. The ban on antibiotics in animal feed has resulted in the use of several natural alternatives aimed at maintaining the quality of the produced meat, including formic acid. Formic acid helps keep the feed free from microbial pathogens. The growing animal husbandry industry is thus likely to drive the Global Formic Acid Market over the forecast period.
