The global acrylic acid market size is estimated to reach USD 13.21 Billion by 2020 at a CAGR of 5.2% between 2015 and 2020. The report segments the market by derivative (acrylic esters- methyl, ethyl, butyl, 2-ethylhexyl acrylate, polymers–acrylic elastomers, superabsorbent polymers, WTP), and application (surface coatings, adhesives & sealants, textile, detergents, plastic additives, diapers & training pants, adult incontinence, water treatment, and others), and by region (Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, and RoW). The base year considered for the study is 2014, while the forecast period is between 2015 and 2020.

Both, top-down and bottom-up approaches have been used to estimate and validate the size of the global market and to estimate the sizes of various other dependent submarkets in the overall acrylic acid market. The research study involved extensive use of secondary sources, directories, and databases such as Hoovers, Bloomberg, Chemical Weekly, Factiva, and other government and private websites to identify and collect information useful for the technical, market-oriented, and commercial study of the global acrylic acid market.

To know about the assumptions considered for the study, download the pdf brochure

The value chain of acrylic acid ranges from the sourcing of raw materials (propene) to the delivery of the final product to end-use industries such as surface coatings, adhesives & sealants, plastic additives, surfactants, and so on. The acrylic acid industry is dominated by a few big players and fully integrated companies. Most of the key suppliers are forward integrated and they market their products mostly through local and regional distribution channels. Production units in North America and Europe supply acrylic acid globally, especially, to the Asia-Pacific region. In every country, a few local players that contribute substantially to the regional market, as they can have bigger market shares in their region compared to the global players.

Various companies, such as Arkema (France), BASF SE (Germany), Evonik Industries (Germany), Nippon Shokubai Co. Ltd. (Japan), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), LG Chem Ltd. (South Korea), Hexion Inc. (U.S.), Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation (Japan), PJSC Sibur Holding (Russia), and Sasol Limited (South Africa) are the key manufacturers of acrylic acid. Majority of the acrylic acid producers use acrylic acid for captive production of SAP and commodity acrylates.

The global acrylic acid market is estimated to reach USD 13.21 Billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 5.2% between 2015 and 2020. The market is driven by increasing demand for acrylic acid in emerging markets and high demand from the surface coatings and diaper application segments. The acrylic acid industry is mainly characterized by three main derivatives, namely, acrylic esters, acrylic polymers, and other derivatives, which include polycyanoacrylate and ammonium polyacrylate.

In 2014, the surface coatings application of acrylic ester accounted for the largest market share of acrylic acid, in terms of volume, followed by adhesives & sealants. Acrylic esters are widely used as binders in the water-borne coatings. The shift toward water-borne coatings from solvent-based coatings is driving the acrylic acid market globally. The restrictions, laid on the use of VOCs by REACH and EPA, are further driving the market. Increasing industrialization and the growing automotive sector in the emerging countries of Asia-Pacific are driving the acrylic acid market in surface coatings application.

Acrylic acid is also used in the manufacturing of SAP, which is majorly used in the making of diapers and female sanitary pads. The ability to absorb water and retain the same is one of the major growth drivers of SAP in the diapers and personal care market. SAP is projected to drive the acrylic polymers market with increasing demands from various end-use applications. The growing demand for adult incontinence and adult diapers in North America, Western Europe, and Japan is the major growth driver for SAP.

Acrylic Acid Market

Asia-Pacific is the largest market for acrylic acid, globally. The region accounts for a major share of the acrylic acid market and is the largest producer of acrylic acid, globally. China is the largest and fastest-growing market for acrylic acid in the region. The prices of acrylic acid are in sync with that of propylene. With the continuous increase in capacity of propylene, the country has an upper hand, as the manufacturing costs in the country for acrylic acid are low. India also is expected to have capacity additions by 2017 for which it shall be able to meet its domestic demand and not depend on imports from China, Japan, or Europe. The use of acrylic acid derivatives in industries, such as the construction, paints (coating), and personal care products are expected to witness higher growth rates in Asia-Pacific followed by RoW in the next five years. Stringent rules & regulations laid down for the use of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in paints have forced the producers to shift toward water-based paints, in which, acrylic acid is a crucial component.

Capacity build and oversupply are the restraining factors for the acrylic acid market. With the available capacity of acrylic acid, companies have been expanding their plants in emerging markets to expand their market shares. With further expansions, there is an increase in the supply, which is not in line with the demand, creating a demand-supply gap. The Dow Chemical Company has taken the initiative to decrease the oversupply with halting the production of acrylic acid in one of its five production facilities in Deer Park, Texas, U.S. BASF is the major and key player in the acrylic acid market. The company is conducting an extensive R&D to extend its product portfolio in the acrylic acid market. New product developments based on its applications in different industries is one of the major strategies of the company. The company is constantly focusing on developing new technologies to support the production of bio-based acrylic acid. It has also formed a joint venture with Sinopec (China) and Petronas (Malaysia) to establish its acrylic acid business footprint in Asia.
