Adipic Acid Market Growth & Trends

The global adipic acid market size is expected to reach USD 6,567.27 million by 2030 to expand at a CAGR of 3.8% from 2023 to 2030 as per the new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The growth is majorly propelled by growing consumption of adipic acid in the production of nylon 6, 6 fiber, polyurethane, adipate esters, and others, which are widely used by a range of end-use industries such as automotive, consumer goods, electronics, constructions, and more. The expansion of the construction sector to accommodate rapidly increasing global population is expected to drive product consumption in building components such as exterior panels, insulation materials, and housing electronics.

The rising disposable income of customers, coupled with their easy access to finances in the form of loans from banks, has contributed to the growth of the global automotive industry. In addition, electric vehicles and automatic cars, which offer easy and less effort-driving experiences to customers, are also witnessing surged demand globally. Thus, the increasing demand for automobiles worldwide is anticipated to fuel the consumption of nylon 6, 6, thereby having a positive impact on the demand for adipic acid.

Adipic acid prices mainly depend on the availability of raw materials namely cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone and demand from end-use industries such as food & beverages, textile, pharmaceuticals, and personal care. The prices of adipic acid witnessed an increase in 2021 and 2022 in North America and Europe due to the Eastern European geopolitical conflict resulting in the disruption of the raw material supply chain.

Major companies operating in this space are BASF SE, Asahi Kasei Corporation, LANXESS, and INVISTA. Multinational corporations have established a global supply chain through third-party distributors or their in-house supply channels. The manufacturing and distribution of products on a global scale enables shorter lead times to the manufacturers operating in the market.

Adipic acid is hazardous to the environment and its release to natural water sources such as rivers and ponds leads to their contamination. Manufacturers of this acid have to ensure its minimum release to the environment. The complications associated with the usage of the product in terms of its hazardous impact on humans and the environment might influence end users of this acid to opt for alternative products such as green adipic acid. This is expected to restrain the demand for traditional adipic acid worldwide in the forecast period.
