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. Transparency Market ResearchHowever, 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.

This report by Transparency Market Research analyzes the catalysts market for petroleum refineries, chemical synthesis, polymer and environmental applications on a global scale and aims to present a comprehensive collection of data and analyses of various market parameters. The report strives to elaborate on the demand and supply characteristics of catalysts by providing historical data from 2009 and a forecast of market numbers until 2018 along with analysis of revenues and volumes.
The catalyst market by materials is dominated by chemical compounds, zeolites and metals. The chemical compound catalyst market is further segmented into polyolefins, adsorbents, chemical synthesis catalysts and others.
The catalysts market by application is divided among the four major segments of environmental, chemical synthesis, petroleum refining and polymers. Of these the environmental segment is expected to be the leading market in the world and holds sway over chemical synthesis and the other two segments. The report outlines the market segmentation and provides a thorough analysis of revenues and volumes.
The catalyst market can be classified into heterogeneous and homogeneous coatings based on their type. Heterogeneous catalysts are increasing in importance with uses in automotive, chemical, polymer, refinery and stationary industry and are found to be the major market segment globally in the catalysts market. Homogeneous catalysts are also growing in popularity owing to their unique features such as selectivity, high activity and varied application.
Ever rising prices of raw materials is forcing refiners to go in for catalyst regeneration, which costs 30% to 50% less than fresh catalysts. Moreover, catalyst regeneration helps refiners to deal with the problem of land filling. The catalyst regeneration industry is dominated by petroleum refineries. Off-site and on-site are the two major technologies employed in catalyst regeneration with off-site technology dominating the market in 2011.
