Adipic acid is a white, crystalline organic compound that falls under the category of dicarboxylic acids. This compound is mainly formed by the oxidation of cyclohexanone and cyclohexanol with nitric acid. Another method is also used to produce adipic acid. The process includes hydrocarbonylation of butadiene and ozonolysis of cyclohexene. Further, adipic acid is majorly used to manufacture engineering fibers production, and nylon 66, along with the production of polyurethane foams, food additives, plasticizers, adhesives, and pharmaceuticals.

Around 80-90% of produced adipic acid is used for the manufacturing of nylon 66. The nylon 66 offers resistance to chemical abrasion and wear, improved hardness, and excellent heat deflection. Thus, adipic acid-based nylon 66 are largely used in food additives, adhesives & sealants, polyurethanes, molded parts, automotive tire cords, monofilaments for surgical sutures, fishing lines, brushes, and others. Hence, the above-mentioned factors are expected to boost the market demand in end-use industries such as automotive, manufacturing, coatings, pharmaceutical, and others.

Key Market Highlights

  • The global adipic acid market size is projected to surpass USD 8.2 billion by 2030 and grow at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period (2022-2030).
  • In the context of the application, the market is separated into nylon 66 fibers, polyurethanes, nylon 66 engineering resins, adipate esters, coatings, unsaturated polyester resins, plasticizers, food additives, wet paper resins, synthetic lubricants, and others.
  • Based on the end user, the market is segmented into eight groups: automotive, electrical and electronics, textiles, food and beverages, personal care, pharmaceutical, paper, and others.
  • The market is geographically divided into five regions: North America, Europe, the Asia-Pacific, South America, and the Middle East and Africa.
  • North America and Europe are estimated to support the market growth during the forecast period due to increased application in industrial processes across the established end-use industries within these regions.

Adipic Acid Market Segmentation Details:

Based on application, the nylon 66 segment accounted for over 89% of the adipic acid market statistics. Nylon 66 is mainly produced by the polycondensation method which involves adipic acid and hexamethylenediamine. The segment growth is credited to excellent usage in high-speed spinning textile processes which are ideal for manufacturing carpets, conveyor belts, and upholstery. Additionally, the properties such as high tensile strength, great dimensional stability, and chemical resistance offer a wide range of nylon 66 in multiple industrial processes.

Based on end use, the automotive segment is anticipated to contribute the largest share to the market growth during the forecast period. As mentioned above, the largest application of adipic acid, nylon 66, offers multiple uses to the automotive industry. The usage of nylon 66 engineering resins in automotive BIW structures helps manufacturers to reduce the major chassis weight and improve vehicle fuel efficiency. Thus, the segment growth is majorly supported by the high usage of such engineering resins and thermoplastics due to workability, durability, and high temperature.

Based on region, North America is expected to support the market growth in terms of volume and value. The large presence of industrial facilities within the region requires a high quantity of adipic acid-based lubricants, plasticizers, coatings, and other products. Additionally, the established pharmaceutical and healthcare facilities in North America highly demand for matrix tablets for the controlled release of adipic acid-based formulations along with the demand for acidifiers, sequestrants, and gelling agents.
