Increasing Demand for Bio-Based Adipic Acid to Upsurge Its Market

Posted on: Jun-2017 | By: 9Dimen Group | Chemicals and Materials

Adipic acid is made up of hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon. The rising demand for nylon 6,6 resins and fibers from several end-users such as the electrical & electronics, automotive, and packaging industries is projected to boost the requirement for adipic acid offering new growth avenues for the adipic acid market. 
 
Rising demand for adipic acid from automotive industry
 
Nylon, a high-performance plastic, plays a significant part in the automotive sector. Lightweight plastics assist in decreasing the vehicles’ weight. The decrease in the automobiles’ weight by every 10% is anticipated to have a 5–7% decrease in the use of fuel. The rising prices of fuel and environmental concerns regarding pollution have fueled the production of cars that are fuel efficient in the automotive industry. The nylon fibers are utilized in the manufacturing of parts of automotive such as air intake manifolds, engine covers, glass-reinforced plastics-based structural parts, airbag containers, rocker valve covers, and several exterior & interior automotive parts.
 
Increasing requirement for bio-based adipic acid
 
Bio-based adipic acid has come up as a substitute for petroleum-based adipic acid. It is made from sustainable feedstocks such as plant-based sugars & oils, based on fermentation, crystallization and ultrafiltration techniques. It is formed via the sucrose fermentation, which is environment-friendly. The sucrose is broken down into components such as glucose and fructose, which are the substances utilized during the process of fermentation to generate bio-adipic acid. The use of environment-friendly adipic acid assists in decreasing the volatile organic compounds and gasses toxicity from close by industries. It also retains the environmental equilibrium of the atmosphere in the surrounding area. 
 
Growth of electronics and electrical market
 
The characteristics such as heat resistance and non-conductivity have resulted in the wide use of nylon 6, in the electronic part manufacturing. It is utilized in the manufacturing of screws, circuit board hardware, washers, and bolts. Nylon filled in semiconductor chips with electrically conductive substances will provide electromagnetic shielding and electrostatic discharge for electronic equipment, trays, and conveyors. The rise in the usage of nylon 6,6 in the industry is expected to burgeon the market for adipic acid in the near future.
