The PMMA market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.8% (between 2014 and 2019) with market size projected at 2,433 KT by 2019. The Asia-Pacific region, with its growing economy and rapidly expanding commercial and industrial base is projected to experience the highest growth in demand between 2014 and 2019.

Innovative applications of PMMA can be the new revenue pockets in the future. Few of such examples observed are the underwater dining at the Anantara Kihavah Villas in the Maldives; headquarter of The Engine Room (U.K.); and creative relaxation program, ‘WOLKE 7 CLOUD 9’ offered by Austrian artist sha.. In underwater dining, PMMA is used to make windows while at the office of The Engine Room (U.K.), it is deployed to mark their interiors with bold and visually exciting colors. Thus, such examples unfold new business opportunities both for the individual industry as well as for PMMA manufacturers.

The intensity of competitive rivalry in the PMMA market is medium. This is because the PMMA market is consolidated among Top 5 players, Mitsubishi Rayon/Lucite (Japan), Chi Mei Corporation (Taiwan), Sumitomo Chemical Company Limited (Japan), Arkema (France), and Evonik (Germany) that account for 77% of the overall PMMA market. Thus, each of the players has established their positions in the market for their products.

The PMMA market has been analyzed in terms of both volume (KT) and value ($Million) for the four regions, namely, the North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Rest of the World (RoW) and for the applications, namely, signs and displays, construction, automotive, lighting fixtures, sanitary ware, electronics, and others.

For this report, various secondary sources, such as directories, technical handbooks, company annual reports, industry association publications, chemical magazine articles, , trade websites, and databases have been referred to identify and collect information useful for this extensive commercial study of the PMMA market. The primary sources that include experts from related industries and suppliers have been interviewed to obtain and verify critical information as well as to assess future prospects and market estimations.

The PMMA market size in terms of value is projected to reach $7.4 billion by 2019, at a CAGR of 6.1% between 2014 and 2019. The increasing need of high impact resistant, rigid, and light weight material in the signs and displays; automotive and construction industry is driving the market for polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA). Advances in the market of electronics and automotive applications have given rise to the use of PMMA. When compared with conventional glass, PMMA provides easy handling and processing, and lower costs.

PMMA products are used for architectural and urban development projects (noise barriers and street furniture), contemporary design (shop fittings and furniture), and interior design in construction applications because of its low weight and rigidity. It is also widely used in the automotive industry, as it is lightweight and weather resistant. It is used in taillights, windshields, windscreens, headlamps, and instrument panels which are used in automobiles. In the signs and displays application, PMMA is used in the manufacturing of LCD panels and screens; for flat screen TVs and computer monitors; and for making signage (trade signs and display cases).

The PMMA market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% in the next five years to reach 2,433.0 KT by 2019. In the PMMA market, the industry comprises several global and regional players such as Evonik (Germany), Arkema (France), Polycasa (U.K.), Mitsubishi Rayon (Japan), Sumitomo Chemical (Japan), Chi Mei (Taiwan), Kuraray (Japan), and LG MMA (South Korea) among others. These major players hold significant controlling in the PMMA market.

The report covers the PMMA market and its trends that concern four regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW).
