In the final two quarters of 2023, sebacic acid prices experienced a rapid decline. Sebacic acid is derived from castor seeds, and therefore, its prices closely mirror the price trends of its source. The cultivation of the castor crop thrived in semi-arid regions such as Gujrat and Rajasthan in India, which eventually caused an unexceptional bloom in the inventories. Thus, throughout the aforementioned period, the castor oil industry faced reduced market demands along with consistent inventory supplies, leading to an oversupply crisis not only in India but several other nations such as Indonesia, Brazil, and China.

However, it was observed that as the year approached its end, the dynamics of the market started to improve, and the prices began to stagnate. This relief in the market sentiments came from the rise in the spending budget of the consumers at the onset of the holiday season and the spike in the industrial activities of downstream polymer sectors.

Production Processes

  • Production of Sebacic Acid from Castor Oil and Sodium Hydroxide

The main fatty acid found in castor beans is produced through a procedure that involves extracting ricinoleic acid from sodium hydroxide and alkaline solutions. Approximately 87% of castor oil contains ricinoleic acid. Following caustic digestion, the ricinoleic acid is broken down to produce capryl alcohol and sebacic acid. Sebacic acid is often produced with a lesser yield, hence purification techniques are employed to get higher yields of purity.
