Global Muconic Acid Market 2017-2021

Global Muconic Acid Market 2017-2021

About Muconic Acid

Muconic acid is a chemical compound; it is a dicarboxylic acid that contains two carboxylic functional groups and is denoted as -COOH. Muconic acid is produced by the enzymatic degradation of sugars. The derivatives of muconic acid are used to manufacture a variety of products such as lubricants, carpets, plastics, and textiles. Adipic acid and caprolactam are the derivatives of muconic acid. Muconic acid is catalytically converted into adipic acid. The major industrial application of adipic acid and HDMA is in manufacturing nylon 66.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global muconic acid market to grow at a CAGR of 7.29% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Muconic Acid Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global muconic acid market: Amyris, Merck, Myriant, Santa Cruz Biotechnology, and Thermo Fisher Scientific.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: TCI Chemicals, and Toronto Research Chemicals.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is preference for bio-based muconic acid. The improved performance properties and stringent regulations on the emissions of carbon dioxide have encouraged the manufacturers to invest in bio-based technology to produce bio-muonic acid and its derivatives. The conversion of chemicals from biomass using electrocatalysis has evolved as a competitive alternative to conventional heterogeneous catalysis.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is growing demand for nylon fibers. Muconic acid and its derivatives are used to produce high-molecular-weight polymers such as nylon. Nylon is extensively used in various applications due to their strength and property to increase the lifetime of the product. In addition, nylon fiber is resistant to abrasion and provides supple tactile feeling. Thus, their use is growing in the carpets, textiles, and automobile industries. This is also creating demand for muconic acid and its derivatives. The demand for nylon fibers in the carpets and textiles industry is quite high. In the textile industry, nylon fibers are used for their easy to dye-ability. The consumption of nylon fibers in home furnishing is also growing.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is threat of substitutes. The presence of synthetic and bio-based substitutes of muconic acid, such as sebacic acid, bio-based succinic acid, cyclohexane, and butadiene, is anticipated to have a negative impact on the growth in the global muconic acid market. Bio-based sebacic acid is produced from castor oil. Bio-based sebacic acid is in demand in the textiles industry. In addition, synthetic sebacic acid and bio-based sebacic acid are widely used in lubricants. The demand for sebacic acid in the lubricants industry is due to its improved property. It is used as a corrosion inhibitor.
