Acrylic Acid Market, Key Player, Analysis, Type and Business Opportunities, Current Trends, Forecast by 2022

Acrylic Acid Market Analysis 

The global acrylic acid market is likely to touch USD 18,300 million at a 5.1% CAGR between 2016-2022, as per the recent Market Research Future (MRFR) report. Acrylic acids, simply put, are organic compounds that have a specific tart or acrid smell. A major part of acrylic acid compounds is utilized as feedstocks for obtaining acrylate esters. Acrylic esters have wide applications in adhesives and sealants, paper treatment, plastic additives, textiles, and others. Some of its key characteristics include tackiness, durability, glass transition temperatures, and hardness. Acrylates are widely used in thickeners, flocculants, dispersants, and detergents.

Acrylic acid is a versatile raw material, especially in the chemical industry. It is used in the production of various products that are utilized in the construction industry chiefly on account of its weather-resistant coating. They are made into coatings that have high weather resistance, which is highly applicable for the construction industry.  

Numerous factors are adding to the global acrylic acid market growth. These factors, according to the recent MRFR report, include increasing use of bio-based polymers in various healthcare applications, growing adhesives, and sealants industry, increasing use of acrylic-based products, especially in emerging economies, and demand for superabsorbent polymers. Additional factors adding market growth include increasing use of acrylic acid in diapers and surface coatings coupled with burgeoning demand from the construction industry. 

On the contrary, strict government rules towards human health and environmental safety are factors that may restrict the global acrylic acid market growth during the forecast period.
