Adipic acid is a dicarboxylic acid which contains two carbonyl group. It is naturally found in sugar cane and beets. It is synthesized from benzene and crude oil. It is used to manufacture lubricant components and plasticizes, about 90% of adipic acid is used to make nylon. In food industries, it is used as an acidulant, leavening agent, buffering agent, gelling aid and gives tart & sweet flavor. It is also used in medicine to control the acid and base concentration. 

Market Dynamics – Adipic Acid Market 

An increase in demand for adipic acid in electrical & electronics, automotive, consumer goods, and appliance industry are the main drivers of the market. R & D in textiles production is also helping the market to grow, as companies are focusing on lightweight, durable, high quality, and high absorption quality which are capable during extreme conditions like chemical and temperature. The presence of some environmental restriction rules and regulations in some regions, fluctuation in raw material price, and increasing use of hybrid fiber are the main restraints of the adipic acid market.
