The market report curated by the Data Bridge Market Research team includes in-depth expert analysis, import/export analysis, pricing analysis, production consumption analysis, and climate chain scenario.
Adipic acid is basically a white, crystalline compound that is generally utilized in the production of nylon 6, 6. From a commercial standpoint, it is one of the essential acids available as aliphatic dicarboxylic acids. It is also used to produce polyurethanes as a reactant to form plasticizers, lubricant components, and polyester polyols. In most synthetic fiber manufacturing industries, adipic acid is typically produced through the oxidation of cyclohexane or other petroleum-based feedstock. According to statistics, cyclohexane is responsible for the production of more than half of adipic acid. The remainder is derived from cyclohexene and uncoupled cyclohexanol/cyclohexanone (KA oil).

COVID-19 Impact on Adipic Acid Market
The recent outbreak of coronavirus had a negative impact on the adipic acid market because of the economic slowdown caused by the pandemic, the use of nylon and nylon-based products, particularly in the automobile industry, has declined significantly. As a result, demand for adipic acid in the market for the manufacture of nylon decreased. The nationwide lockdowns and restrictions on export-import activities have significantly impacted the global adipic acid market's supply chains and operations. On the other hand, due to the high demand for drugs during the pandemic, the use of adipic acid in the pharmaceutical industry increased. This has resulted in an increase in market demand for adipic acid.
- In January 2020, BASF SE announced the acquisition of Solvay's polyamide business in order to expand BASF's polyamide capabilities with innovative and well-known products such as Technyl. This acquisition has also enabled BASF to provide its customers with even better engineering plastics solutions, such as autonomous driving and e-mobility.
