The global adipic acid market is driven by growing demand for nylon 6, 6 resin and fibers in automotive and electronics industries and the growth of the global footwear market where polyurethane being one of the applications of adipic acid is used to manufacture shoe soles. However, due to rising price of crude oil and the impact of adipic acid on the environment, the world is shifting towards the use of bio-based adipic acid. Apart from providing a clean solution, bio-based adipic acid is also economically viable against its synthetic counterpart.

The bio-based adipic acid market is still in its nascent phase and is likely to commercialize by 2013 – 2014. However, it is expected that demand for bio-based adipic acid will be significant due to growing demand for eco-friendly materials and its acceptance by the consumers. Some companies like DSM, Verdezyne and Rennovia have already started their pilot operations with extensive R&D activities to support their pursuit. Many other companies are expected to follow them in the coming years.

The major geographic markets for adipic acid are Asia Pacific, and Europe. Asia Pacific enjoyed the largest market share of the worldwide adipic acid market in 2010 and is expected to lead by 2018. Along with being the largest market, Asia Pacific is also the fastest growing market for adipic acid.
