Technavio analysts forecast the global sebacic acid market to grow at a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period, according to their latest market research report.
The increasing demand for EVs is one of the major trends being witnessed in the global sebacic acid market 2018-2022. The rise in the global sales of EVs negatively affects the sales of bromine and its derivatives. EVs use zinc-bromine batteries due to their cost-effectiveness and display of enhanced performance characteristics. Moreover, their environment-friendly attributes make them preferable over lead-acid batteries. Thus, the increase in the sale of EVs has decreased the use of sebacic acid, as this acid is generally used in IC engines in conventional vehicles as a coolant.

Global sebacic acid market: Increasing demand for sebacic acid in the automotive industry
In automotive, aircraft, and truck engines, sebacic acid is used as a corrosion inhibitor and also as a coolant fluid. Additionally, it is used to produce complex grease and lubricants as well as polyvinyl chloride materials. In the form of sebacate esters, sebacic acid is used as a plasticizer in PVC films to provide low-temperature flexibility and freedom from cracking. In the automotive industry, PVC is used in wide-ranging applications such as manufacturing cable insulation and grommets, dashboards, door panels seating, armrests, and exterior parts, which include body side protection strips, weatherstrips, and windows sealing profiles.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals, Major automotive manufacturing countries, such as Germany, Italy, the US, India, China, and others have been using sebacic acid as a coolant as well as in the manufacturing of PVC. Therefore, during the forecast period, the increasing automotive vehicle production globally is expected to drive the demand for sebacic acid.
