Octadecanedioic acid is a long chain dicarboxylic acid which contains two carbon components. It is also called C18 diacid. Dicarboxylic acid is formed by the traditional method of butadiene oxidation. The primary raw material used in this process consists of petrochemicals. The volatile prices of petrochemical products coupled with the imbalance in the supply demand of petrochemicals raw materials has led to the shift toward biotechnology-based chemicals. The initiative to produce dicarboxylic acid from the method related to biotechnology production, primarily metathesis and microbial fermentation is taken to reduce the dependency on pertrochemicals raw material. The production of octadecanedioic acid through microbial fermentation, on a commercial scale, facilitates additional investments and developments in the biotechnological field. In the biotechnology method, vegetable oil is used as a raw material. Emission norms in the automobile and other industrial sectors have played an important role in the development of biotechnology-based acids.
The global octadecanedioic acid market can be classified on the basis of end-use industry, applications, and region. In terms of end-use industry, the octadecanedioic acid market can be segmented into automobile, industrial, medical, construction, food service, and textiles.
