The Global Adipic Acid Market Experienced a Demand of Approximately 2500 Thousand Tonnes in 2021 and is Anticipated to Grow at a CAGR of 3.74% During the Forecast Period Until 2035

The global Adipic Acid market experienced a demand of approximately 2500 thousand tonnes in 2021 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3.74% during the forecast period until 2035. Adipic Acid is vastly employed as a feedstock to produce Nylon 6,6. With increased focus on various types and applications, the durability, quality, and lightweight properties of nylon 6,6, and upcoming innovative procedures for its use will be the key driving factors for the global market of Adipic Acid.

Adipic Acid is a dicarboxylic acid with chemical formula as (CH2)4(COOH)2. It appears as a white crystalline powder. Industrial synthesis of Adipic Acid involves oxidation of cyclohexanone and cyclohexanol with nitric acid in a multistep pathway. As a byproduct of this reaction, dinitrogen oxide (N2O), a greenhouse gas, is produced. Adipic acid is a vital raw chemical for a broad range of applications in the textile and plastics industries. Although, application of adipic acid as a comonomer along with hexamethylenediamine to produce nylon 6-6 is the largest application of adipic acid. Nylon 66 is utilized to produce apparel, leisure equipment, consumer items, electronics, household goods, and other items. Furthermore, other applications of Adipic Acid include Polyurethanes, Adipic Esters, Plasticizers and Food additives. Additionally, Adipic Acid is employed as a difunctional cross - linking component in certain water-based acrylic emulsion paints and coatings.

The growing demand for nylon 6,6 for production of commodities is driving the global Adipic Acid market. The automotive sector predominantly uses nylon 66, which is made from adipic acid, for its exceptional mechanical, thermal-resistance, and lightweight qualities. In 2021, the Automotive Industry The constant urge to develop light-weight vehicles by replacing conventional metal parts in automotives with their light-weight components to reduce carbon footprint is driving the demand of Nylon 6,6. Nylon 6,6 is used to make a variety of vehicle components, including air intake pipes, engine coverings, rocker valve encompass, airbag containers, and structural individual pieces of glass-reinforced polymers. The rise in demand for lightweight engineering polymers along with paints and coating will probably fuel the market's expansion for Adipic Acid. Thus, these applications are anticipated to swell up the global Adipic Acid demand in the forecast period to reach approximately 4000 thousand tonnes by 2035.

Based on region, the Asia Pacific dominates the Adipic Acid market as a consumer. In 2021, this region consumed about 40% of the market with major consumption from countries like India, China, and Japan. The consumption of Adipic Acid as a raw material for production of nylon 6,6, which is utilized for making light-weight vehicles coupled with its application to produce plastics is anticipated to swell the Adipic Acid demand by 2035. Europe is the second largest consumer of Adipic Acid. Owing to the manufacture of electric vehicles is anticipated to further push the demand of Adipic Acid. Based on production, Asia Pacific is also taking the lead among all the other areas, with China being the top producer. In 2021, China produced approximately 50% of the global Adipic Acid.
