Dodecanedioic acid (DDDA) is an alpha, omega-dicarboxylic acid that is dodecane in which the methyl groups have been oxidised to the corresponding carboxylic acids. DDDA is a C12 dibasic acid/dicarboxylic acid. It is a white solid with a flaky form in terms of physical appearance. At room temperature, the compound has a melting point of 128° C and is insoluble in water. However, solubility rapidly increases with higher temperatures. Dodecanedioic acid has a long shelf life of around three years, depending upon the storage method. DDDA is a dicarboxylic acid mainly used in antiseptics, top-grade coatings, painting materials, corrosion inhibitors, surfactants, and engineering plastics such as nylon 6/12.

The global dodecanedioic acid market is expected to surpass US$ 1,074.0 million by the end of 2030 in terms of revenue, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.7% during the forecast period (2022 to 2030).

Drivers

Increase in usage of dodecanedioic acid in nylon materials, coupled with rising automotive industry.  The most common types of resins are nylon 6, nylon 6/6, and nylon 6/12, which are manufactured using dodecanedioic acid. Moreover, dodecanedioic acid is used in the production of engineering plastics such as polyamide resins; a high-performance nylon 6-12. It is reacted with hexamethylenediamine to make nylon 6/12 used in automotive parts. Furthermore, dodecanedioic acid is used in fuel and brake lines, adhesives, pulp & paper, chemical and industrial facilities, and surfactants. Dodecanedioic acid is majorly used in hydraulic liquids in automotive suspension, lubricants in motor oil, and break fluids. Rise in demand for dodecanedioic acid in manufacturing nylon materials, engineering plastic, and other applications is driving the global dodecanedioic acid market growth.

Among region, Asia Pacific held dominant position in the global dodecanedioic acid market in 2021, accounting for 32.9% market share, in terms of revenue, followed by North America and Europe. Due to rising consumption of the daily need products such as cosmetics in economies such as China, India, Malaysia, and Japan, which uses dodecanedioic acid in its production increases the demand in the region. Asia Pacific is expected to be the world's largest and fastest-growing region. Furthermore, supportive regulations by the government to attract more investments are expected to have a positive impact on the market. China has the world's largest plastics industry, accounting for approximately 30% of the global production. Biodegradable materials are increasingly used by Chinese plastic manufacturers. This is projected to assist China in maintaining its global position in plastics production, and in turn increase the demand for dodecanedioic acid. Moreover, Asia Pacific is the world's largest manufacturer and consumer of paints and coatings, with China, Japan, and India accounting for a significant portion of the overall share. Positive growth indicator of the regional construction and automotive industry is the key factor contributing to the market growth.

DODECANEDIOIC ACID MARKET

Market Restraints

Harmful effects of dodecanedioic acid include irritation to eyes, respiratory system damage, and skin irritation. DDDA can cause skin inflammation in certain people when they come into contact with the chemical. Skin contact is not thought to have harmful health effects, however, the chemical may lead to health damage following entry through wounds, lesions or abrasions. People with impaired respiratory function, airway diseases, and conditions such as emphysema or chronic bronchitis may incur further disability, if excessive concentrations of the chemical is inhaled. Thus, hazardous effects of dodecanedioic acid on humans are expected to hamper the global dodecanedioic acid market growth over the forecast period.
