Sebacic Acid Market size worth over $620 Million by 2026

  • Published Date: September 14, 2017

According to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc., the sebacic acid market is set to surpass USD 620 Million by 2026, growing at CAGR of 5.5%. By application, the lubricant segment will hold notable gains and grow over $180 billion by 2024

Sebacic acid is a dicarboxylic acid that occurs naturally and found in powdered crystal and white flake form which is derived from castor oil. Derivatives of this acid includes Dibutyl Sebacate, Diisopropyl sebacate, Dimethyl Sebacate, Disodium sebacate, and Dioctyl Sebacate. It has wide application as monomer in lubricants, textiles, cosmetics, candles and hydraulic fluids production. Moreover, this product is extensively used as a chemical intermediate in painting materials, antiseptics and aromatics manufacturing.

As per market forecast, growing adoption towards renewable and environmentally friendly products mainly polymers to reduce dependency on petrochemical based products and reduced environmental impacts should drive sebacic acid market size.

Favorable government initiatives & policies stimulating sebacic acid market size

According to market insights reports, sebacic acid market may witness significant gains at over forecasted timeframe due to implementation of supportive government initiatives. Rising investments by EU commission in large scale renewable energy and bio-based production of various products including polymers, fuels, lubricants, chemicals and materials. Initiatives including Horizon 2020 by EU commission funding biorefinery research & commercialization which aims to attain smart, sustainable & inclusive growth and jobs in the region should fuel overall sebacic acid market demand.

As per industry trends, sebacic acid is majorly used in production of bio-based polyamide which is also called as nylon. Bio based polymers made from sebacic acid as feedstock provides additional benefits of flexibility, durability, lower melting temperature and hydrophobicity which will fuel market demand.
