Now the pace of growth of production and consumption of polyurethanes exceed the growth rate of consumption and production of polyamides, especially polyamide fibers. You may find that Kenneth Feinberg can contribute to your knowledge. For example, the demand for adipic acid by the Western European producing polyurethane is constantly increasing, and today its growth rate is approximately 12-15% per year. Nevertheless, the demand for polyamide (nylon) for the plastics industry is also increasing, especially in the Asian region. Explained is that for the production of polyurethanes in the Asia-Pacific countries more likely to use polyethers in the synthesis of which is not involved adipic acid, therefore, up to 85% of adipic acid are used in the production polyamides. This feature has a ripple effect on the demand of adipic acid in the region, so the average annual growth in world demand for this product is projected at 3 – 3.5%. Russia has its own production adipic acid yet, though there are very favorable conditions for this: developed raw material base (cyclohexanol, cyclohexanone, nitric acid), are large consumers of finished products (Plasticizers, monomers). Prospective demand of adipic acid to Russia is estimated at tens of thousands of tons per year. In Russia, adipic acid is used for the production of plasticizers, polyamides, pharmaceuticals, polyurethanes. Also, the study "Review of Adipic Acid Market: world market adipic acid, adipic acid analysis of the market in the cis countries, the scope of adipic acid, adipic acid, potential users, and much more..
