According to report published by Grand View Research, The increasing application of levulinic acid, especially in pesticides, solvents, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics industries are anticipated to boost growth in the coming years.
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Levulinic Acid market to grow at a CAGR of 4.52 percent over the period 2014-2019.

However, in previously studied conversion methods, sugar molecules frequently degrade to form levulinic acid and formic acid--two products the previous methods couldn't readily transform into high-energy liquid fuels.

The same route yields levulinic acid from both these two compounds.
It should be noted that no single test covering all porphyric possibilities exists and that caution is due: If porphyria is suspected, testing for porphyrins might not even yield an answer because in the inducible porphyrias (acute intermittent porphyria, variegate porphyria, and hereditary coproporphyria), assays for porphyrin precursors ([partial derivative]-amino levulinic acid and porphobilinogen) are by far more helpful.
The new process converts those carbohydrates into chemicals called levulinic acid esters - at the same time and in the same vessel that the oils are converted to fatty acid esters - resulting in a fuel cocktail that performs better at low temperatures than conventional biodiesel.
It can also be chemically converted to products such as levulinic acid, sorbitol and other polyols or glycols.
Exploration of methods for converting cellulose to levulinic acid then cyclic ether, a fuel blending component, is also ongoing.
Aliphatic acids (acetic, formic and levulinic acids), furaldehydes (furfural and 5-hydroxymethyl furfural) and aromatic compound extractives are among the inhibitory compounds which vary according to the type of raw material and pretreatment conditions (temperature, residence time, pressure, pH and others) (Martin, & Jonsson, 2003; Bellido et al., 2011; Behera et al., 2014).
Others include phenolics formed from the partial breakdown of lignin (Ando et al., 1986; Jonsson et al., 1998; Larsson et al., 1999) and weak organic acids such as acetic acid as well as formic and levulinic acids that are formed from the breakdown of HMF and furfural (Larsson et al., 1999; Martin and Jonsson, 2002; Martinez et al., 2001).
