The largest production of adipic acid is in North American region, due to a strong need from the engineering plastics and textiles industry. The adipic acid is majorly produced by the countries like China, United States, Japan and Germany. Most of the countries do not have a production capacity except a few single digit manufacturing units. The emission of nitrous oxide possessed a serious threat to the large scale production. However, the emissions have lowered down greatly and are supposed to get completely controlled in the coming years.
The global adipic acid market is expected to gain in emerging markets rapidly, due to increase in demand. On the other hand, high cost associated with its manufacturing is a key challenge for the market. The price movements may move moderately. The recent introduction of bio based adipic acids would affect the prices of conventional adipic acids too.
There are four major companies in the global adipic acid market approximately 60% of the total market share and these major firms are investing heavily into the R&D for producing the bio based adipic acids, as they are the future of the adipic acid market.
