Sebacic Acid Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Form (Powder, Flakes, Granules), By Application (Plastics & Polymers, Chemical Synthesis, Lubricant, Cosmetics, Others) Others and Regional Forecast, 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102376 | Status : Ongoing



Sebacic acid is a white-colored, non-hazardous, powdered, or flaky substance. It is also known as decanedioic acid. Sebacic acid is primarily obtained by splitting castor oil and then fusion with caustic soda. It has a mild odor and is slightly soluble in water. On the other hand, it is highly soluble in ethanol or ethers. Sebacic acid is commonly used in the manufacturing of wax candles. It is also utilized in the manufacture of plastics, polymers, and various intermediates. Furthermore, sebacic acid is used in cosmetics as a pH buffer, besides being utilized to produce a salt derivative for lubricant application.

Sebacic acid is a bio-based, low-cost monomer used for the manufacture of nylon. As the demand for nylon is surging for manufacturing fibers and textiles, the market for sebacic acid is expected to mirror the growth of the nylon market.

Key Market Driver -

Demand for production of Nylon

Key Market Restraint -

Fluctuating cost of the raw material

However, the fluctuating cost of the raw material, castor seeds, which are in high demand for the manufacture of biodiesel, is the primary reason for decelerating the growth of the sebacic acid market.
