The global adipic acid market size was valued at around USD 5.65 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach around USD 8.18 billion by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 4.92% during the forecast period, 2022–2030. The growth of the market is attributed to rising product demand from the automobile industry for the manufacture of lightweight vehicles.


Adipic Acid Market_Summary

Adipic acid is an organic chemical generally known as hexane dioic acid. It is an important monomer in the polymer industry. Adipic acid is made commercially by reacting nitric acid with a combination of cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone, also known as ketone-alcohol oil (KA oil). Purified adipic acids are used in preparation of polyurethanes and plasticizers. Adipic acid is a basic raw material used for the production of nylon 66 and other polymeric fibers. It is widely utilized in the pharmaceutical industries and food and beverages. Adipic acid is used in cushioning materials to make furniture durable and comfortable.

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively affected every sector of the global market, including the adipic acid industry. Application of nylon and nylon-based items reduced dramatically, due to the economic slowdown caused by the pandemic. As a result, demand for adipic acid in the nylon manufacturing business and in the automobile industry decreased. The supply chain and operations of the adipic acid market have been negatively affected by statewide lockdowns and limitations on export and import activity. However, the use of adipic acid in the pharmaceutical business increased, due to the increasing demand for medication during the pandemic.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Growing applications of artificial polymers and rapid industrialization are expected to drive the market.
  • Rising demand for lightweight engineering plastics is anticipated to propel the market during the forecast period.
  • Stringent environment regulations regarding the production process are projected to hamper the market.
  • High price of raw materials and fluctuating production cost are expected to hinder the market.
  • Increasing awareness regarding bio-based adipic acid is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for market players.
