adiponitrile market include Dupont, Solvay, Rhodia group, Invista, BASF, others.

The organic liquid chemical known as adiponitrile market or hexanedinitrile is colorless. It serves primarily as a precursor to the polymer nylon 6-6, which has excellent mechanical strength and is used in a variety of products such as conveyor belts, carpet fibers and electrical insulation elements. Adiponitrile is used as an intermediate in the manufacture of rubber accelerators and corrosion inhibitors, but at much lower levels.

The main use of adiponitrile in Nylon6-6, where demand is still high in North America and Europe, mainly due to automotive applications, dominates the market for this material. Additionally, the adiponitrile market is growing in Asia Pacific countries such as China, Malaysia, and other Southeast Asian countries, mainly because production facilities are cheaper.

The most common industrial method for making adiponitrile, first discovered by Dupont, is the hydrocyanation of butadiene over a nickel catalyst. Adiponitrile is the final product of this process, which includes several sub-products. Hexamethylenediamine, a key component of nylon 6-6, is then produced by hydrogenating adiponitrile. Nylon 6-6 is an excellent replacement for nylon 6 and is used in ropes, tire cords, musical instrument strings and fittings in the automotive sector.

However, nylon 6-6 outperforms nylon 6 in many applications due to its superior high temperature qualities. The main industries requiring high temperatures and strength are carpet manufacturing, production of hosiery and knitted garments in the textile industry, manufacture of tire ropes, gear wheels, plug parts, hydraulic brake lines and radiator housings for automobiles.

Nylon 6-6 is lightweight and waterproof, so it can be used in swimwear. Adipic acid, which is used in polyurethane applications such as automotive seats, footwear and insulation, is likewise derived from adiponitrile. Adiponitrile, on the other hand, is a weaker alternative in this market because adipic acid can be produced cheaper by other means.

Demand for nylon 6-6 drives the market as almost all adiponitrile is used to make fibers. Widespread use of nylon 6-6 in manufacturing and automotive industries will boost the demand for adiponitrile. The United States is the country with the highest demand for this sector, followed by developing countries such as China and Malaysia.

As nylon 6-6 resin is widely used as a major engineering resin in Europe and America, the market for adiponitrile will expand. Demand for tire cords is expected to further increase as the automobile market is steadily expanding, especially in developed countries and the Asia-Pacific region.

This increases the market potential of adiponitrile. The intensification of the textile industry is expected to increase the demand for carpet, rug and apparel textile applications. This will undoubtedly play a major role in the demand for adiponitrile in the near future. However, fierce price competition in this industry is driving leading players in the sector to relocate their production locations to Asia Pacific countries.
