Sandwiched between Ambattur Industrial Estate and Thiruverkadu, Ayapakkam developed as a residential area, since 1990, after Tamil Nadu Housing Board quarters came up. Unlike Ambattur that houses more industrial units, Ayapakkam is predominantly a residential area and it connects with the city, via Anna Nagar and Maduravoyal, through Poonamallee High Road and Chennai-Tiruvallur High (CTH) Road.
With many sources of water around it, like Ayapakkam lake, Paruthipattu lake and Ambattur lake, Ayapakkam has good ground water. Many water tankers fill water from Ayapakkam for supply to other locations.
Ayapakkam is very close to the Chennai Bypass road. The location advantages include being closer to India Land IT and Ambit IT park, as well as having the Vanagaram Apollo hospital and Ramachandra Hospital in its vicinity.
In the 2011 census, Ayappakkam had a population of 28,630.
