Impact of COVID-19 on acrylic processing aid Market

In 2020, owing to outbreak of COVID-19 resulted in downfall for many industries across the globe. The decrease in demand of plastics from end-use industries such as automotive, building & construction, consumer goods, packaging and so on has resulted in decrease in demand of acrylic processing aid used in processing of plastics. After Q3 2020, industries are opened up, but with limited workforce and expected to be fully functional by end of 2020. Considering the above factors, the acrylic processing aid market is expected to witness negative growth in 2020 and expected rebound with positive growth during the forecast period.

Driver:Replacement of conventional material with PVC

PVC possesses superior mechanical, electrical, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, among other properties compared to conventional materials such as metals, glass, paper, and ceramic. Continuous innovation and the need for lighter material in several applications are encouraging the replacement of these conventional materials by plastic in several applications. The manufacturers of PVC use acrylic processing aid during the fabrication process because it provides faster fusion, increased production output, improved melt strength and elasticity, reduced plate-out and melt texture, improved surface gloss and finishing, better thickness, and tensile strength. Acrylic processing aid is more popular in Asian countries due to its cost-effectiveness and properties for producing good quality products.

Restraints: Less R&D expenditure in emerging markets

Asia-Pacific and South America are emerging markets for acrylic processing aid. The market in Europe and North America is comparatively mature than these emerging markets. The amount of acrylic processing aid consumed in Asia Pacific is higher than North America and Europe. In Asia Pacific, China, Japan, and Taiwan are the major producers of acrylic processing aid. Small- and medium-sized players mainly dominate the market in these countries. However, the R&D expenditure by small companies is low because of lack of capital. This negatively affects the overall development of acrylic processing aid in the region. Similarly, the expenditure is lower than North America and Europe in other emerging plastic markets of South America.

Less focus on R&D activities in emerging countries is restraining the acrylic processing aid market. Some of the companies are still striving to develop new technologies for polymerization and produce better-quality plastics with enhanced features. R&D activities and technological advancements may gain momentum after 3–5 years. Hence, the less focus on R&D activities is considered as a restraining factor for the market in medium term.

Opportunities: Increasing demand from building & construction and automotive applications

Acrylic processing aid is widely used in plastics for PVC applications in the building & construction and automotive industries. The use of acrylic processing aid in plastics for PVC flooring, windows, pipes, automotive interior and exterior is attracting the customers owing to excellent clarity, surface quality, glossy effects, and cost-effectiveness. Acrylic processing aid is mainly used to increase the flow of plastic materials, reduce the shark skin effect during extrusion, and enhance processability. Use of acrylic processing aid in plastics is gaining momentum in major end-use industries such as packaging, building & construction, automotive, consumer goods, and others. With growth in these industries, the demand for APA is also expected to increase in the future.

These applications are expected to create growth opportunities for acrylic processing aid in the long term. With the emergence of new application areas and opportunities, the demand for APA will eventually increase in the future.

PVC is the largest polymer type for acrylic processing aid in 2019

PVC is a synthetic resin, which is made from the polymerization of vinyl chloride. It has an amorphous structure with polar chlorine atoms and possesses fire retarding properties, durability, and oil & chemical resistance. It is an odorless and solid plastic, mainly used in automobile instrument panels, sheathing of electrical cables, pipes, and doors. PVC provides flexibility that is helpful in making modern automobiles cost-effective, safe, and of high quality. The composition of this material varies depending on requirement of various grades. It also helps in reducing the weight of vehicles because of its lightweight components in comparison to other materials. Most of the PVC resins are fabricated through extrusion, injection molding, thermoforming, calendaring, and blow molding to produce PVC products. This process requires a small amount of Acrylic Processing Aid during fabrication, depending on the type of application; for example, manufacturing of PVC pipes and window components requires less than 1.5 kg of Acrylic Processing Aid for 100 kg of PVC resin.

Extrusion is estimated to be the largest fabrication process in acrylic processing aid market between 2020 and 2025.

Extrusion is used to process high volume of plastics. The pellets, granules, flakes, or powders are fed into the extrusion machine and melted under high temperature (depending on the type of plastic to be extruded). Single & twin-screw extrusion and die extrusion are the two main types of extrusion techniques. Single & twin extrusion technique is used for melting and pumping of plastic materials, while die extrusion technique is used for the production of different plastic products, such as, pipes, sheet, tubing, and films. Several types of extrusion processes are used for processing plastic materials into finished products.

Building & construction end-use industry is projected to account for the largest share of the acrylic processing aid market between 2020 and 2025.

Plastics play a key role in the building & construction industry. The demand for plastics in this segment is expected to increase because of its increasing use in several applications, including pipes, flooring, roofing, windows & doors, containers, trim board, and others. Plastics are used in the building & construction industry owing to its characteristics such as high impact strength, good weatherability, resistant to oil & chemicals and high levels of light transmission.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest acrylic processing aid market during the forecast period, in terms of value and volume.

Asia Pacific is the most promising market for plastics and related industries, including acrylic processing aid. The region is characterized by growing population economic developments. The Asia Pacific market is segmented into China, India, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Taiwan, and the Rest of Asia Pacific (which includes Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Pakistan, and Bangladesh).

The increasing demand from the building & construction, packaging, consumer goods, and automotive industries is driving the market for acrylic processing aid in the region. The increase in employment rate, purchasing power of the middle class and an increase in foreign investments in various industries of the economy are some important factor that drives the market. The need for environment-friendly products is driving innovation in the plastics industry. High-end products such as consumer goods and electronic devices demand damage-free surfaces. This increases the need for anti-scratch products, which in turn drives the market for acrylic processing aid.

Acrylic Processing Aid Market  by Region

Europe is estimated to be the second largest acrylic processing aid market during the forecast period.

The European acrylic processing aid market is segmented into Germany, France, Italy, UK, Spain and the Rest of Europe (which includes Russia, Poland, Turkey, Romania, Benelux, Scandinavia, Sweden, and so on). The market in Europe is driven by innovation. Germany is the key market for acrylic processing aid in the region. However, it is estimated to witness slow growth between 2020 and 2025 because of recovery from the pandemic and reduced usage of plastic products. There are many untapped opportunities in the packaging industry of Eastern Europe, which shows growth prospects for the acrylic processing aid market in the region. The major players are reducing their production and shifting their facilities to emerging markets and serve the higher demand from Asia-Pacific. BASF, Arkema SA, and Akdeniz Chemson are the major players in the European acrylic processing aid market.
