Adipic Acid Market estimated at US$ 8.1 Bn in 2021 - Coherent Market Insights

Publish In: Jun 17, 2022

Global adipic acid market is estimated to be valued at US$ 8.1 Billion in 2021, according to the Global Adipic Acid Market Report, by Application (Nylon 6, 6 Fiber, Nylon 6, 6 Resin, Polyurethanes, and Adipate Esters), by End-use Industry (Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Home Appliances, Textiles, and FMCG), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Middle East & Africa), published by Coherent Market Insights.

Global adipic acid market was valued at US$ 8.1 Billion in 2021. The production of bio based and synthetic-based adipic acid follows a two-step process. The first step involves production of cyclohexane or cyclohexanone, commonly known as ketone alcohol oil, while the second step is the conversion of ketone alcohol oil into adipic acid using nitrogen acid reactions. This reaction leads to production of a large amount of nitrous oxide (N2O) and Nitrogen oxides.

For instance, • In March 2022, Ascend Performance Materials has reached an agreement to acquire the compounding division of Formulated Polymers Limited, a leading engineered materials manufacturer in Chennai, India. This acquisition will establish Ascend’s first manufacturing base in the subcontinent and strengthen Ascend’s global reach in the electrical and e-mobility application space. The deal includes a world-scale manufacturing facility in Chennai as well as warehouses throughout India.

Global Adipic Acid Market - Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

  • Due to COVID-19 pandemic construction activities were delayed. Due to lockdown measures, sales of paints and coatings were impacted and automotive production were halted across the globe, which in turn reduced demand for adipic acid during first two quarters of 2020. Moreover, COVID-19 resulted in unprecedented decline in sales of automotive and consumer electronics and white good products. This decline in turn reflected in the revenue of the adipic acid industry. The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the supply chain and economic activities across the globe. The COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted numerous end-use industries, thereby hampering growth of overall global adipic acid market.
