Transparency Market Research has released a new market report entitled “Octadecanedioic Acid Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2017 - 2025” on to their report store.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/11/2017 -- Octadecanedioic acid can be defined as the long chain dicarboxylic acid, which is usually not found in human body. It has been identified in blood serum of patients suffering from the Reye's syndrome. Octadecanedioic acid is used in several applications such as synthesis of polyamide, adhesives, and nylon owing to its high effectiveness. Based on application, the market for octadecanedioic acid can be segmented into cosmetics, lubricating oils, polyester polyols, powder coatings, and others. Chemical compounds such as esters are used in high performance applications such as pharmaceuticals, adhesives, powder coatings, and lubricants.

The market for octadecanedioic acid is anticipated to witness strong growth during the forecast period. Rise in preference for environmentally-friendly and sustainable products that lower dependency on petrochemicals is projected to remain a crucial factor driving the octadecanedioic acid market. Demand-supply disparities of petrochemicals result in volatility of prices. Thus, the market has been shifting toward biobased chemicals. Implementation of stringent environmental regulations in automotive and industrial sectors has played an important role in the development of biobased products. Other factors influencing the market for octadecanedioic acid include increase in demand for polyester foam, elastomers, and paints in various automotive and industrial applications. Increase in investments toward the expansion of the application scope is anticipated to boost the usage of octadecanedioic acid in different end-use industries.
