Global Muconic Acid Market to Reach US$ 174.6 Million by 2032, Impelled by Inclination Towards Bio-Based Products

March 28, 2019 | Chemical & Materials

As per the recent market research report by IMARC Group, titled “Muconic Acid Market Report by Derivative (Adipic Acid, Caprolactam, and Others), Application (Carpets and Textiles, Plastics, Lubricants, and Others), and Region 2024-2032”, the global muconic acid market reached a value of US$ 109.6 Million in 2023. Muconic acid is a hexadienedioic acid with the chemical formula C6H6O4. It is a high-value bio-product with conjugated double bonds and reactive dicarboxylic groups. The acid can be derived in three isomers, namely trans, trans-muconic acid; cis, cis-muconic acid; and cis, trans-muconic acid. It has garnered potential applications in the manufacturing of bio-plastics, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, new functional resins and food additives. Apart from this, it is also used in the commercial production of bulk chemicals like trimellitic acid, adipic acid, terephthalic acid and caprolactam. These compounds are further utilized for manufacturing textiles, lubricants, carpets and plastics.

Global Muconic Acid Market Drivers:

Muconic acid has gained popularity in several sectors as a base chemical. Adipic acid, one of its derivatives, is extensively used for the production of nylon 6,6, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polyurethane (as an intermediate). Nylon fibers further find applications in the automobile and textile industries. Caprolactam is also utilized in the making of film coatings, paint, synthetic leather, brush bristles and textile stiffeners. Further, recent innovations have encouraged the production of muconic acid via genetically modified microbial species. In confluence with this, rising inclination towards bio-based products among users is creating new opportunities for both the existing and new players in the industry. As a result of these factors, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period (2024-2032), reaching a value of US$ 174.6 Million by 2032.
