Adipic Acid Market is an organic compound which is most commonly used to produce industrial fibers. It is a synthetic dicarboxylic acid produced from oxidation of various fats. It is majorly used as a raw material for manufacturing of nylon. It is also used in the chemical industry as a raw material for manufacturing of coatings, detergents and also as a plasticizer.

The ever growing auto industry is one of the major factors driving the demand for adipic acid. It is also used by the electronic and electrical industry. For the last decade the world has seen an increasing in spending on infrastructure and thus a rising demand for paints and coating and consequently an increase in the demand of adipic acid. Apart from this derivatives of adipic acids are also used as vehicle for administering drugs that is it helps to deliver the drug to your body.

India and China are expected to be both leading producers and consumers of the adipic acid owing to the fact that they receive high demands from automotive manufacturing industry and have relatively less stringent regulations. Africa and Middle East areas are also expected to show significant growth.

Adipic Acid Market

Manufacturing of adipic acid produces nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas that causes ozone depletion thus raising concern towards adverse environmental impact. This will hinder its market growth and force industries to shift to other viable greener alternatives.
