Acrylic Polymer Market

Dow Inc. (US), BASF SE (Germany) and Toagosei Co., Ltd. (Japan) are Leading Players in the Acrylic Polymer Market

The acrylic polymer market for cleaning application is projected to grow from USD 580 million in 2021 to  USD 709 million by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.1%. The acrylic polymer market for cleaning application is expected to register a 4.1% CAGR between 2021 and 2026. The water-borne accounted for the largest market share of 93.8% in 2020, in terms of value. Laundry & Detergent is estimated to be the largest application of acrylic polymer market for cleaning application during the forecast period, followed by dishwashing in terms of volume. With the increasing population, increasing per-capita income, changing lifestyle, and increasing usage of washing machines across the globe, the demand for laundry detergent is growing,  which is subsequently driving the acrylic polymer market for cleaning application. Moreover, increasing demand for liquid dishwashing products in hotels, restaurants and food retails, and household applications further supports the growth of the acrylic polymer market.

Acrylic polymers are polymers formed by the free radical polymerization of acrylic acid. Generally, photopolymers of acrylic polymer are formed by polymerization of acrylic acid, whereas co-polymer is formed by polymerization between acrylic acid and maleic acid. Acrylic polymers find application in cleaning products’ formulations. Generally, homo- and co-polymer of acrylic acid are used in the production of laundry detergents, dishwashing products, and other cleaning products. The main function of acrylic polymers is to act as builders and anti-soil re-deposition agents. In detergent formulation, acrylic polymers have replaced traditionally used phosphate builders, which is toxic in nature and harmful to the environment. These polymers offer good dispersion and fabric softening properties, owing to which, they are prevalently used in laundry detergent, dishwashing, hard surface cleaning, and other such products.
