Acrylic acid is also known by different names like propene acid, vinyl formic acid, or 2-proenoic acid. It has as a clear, corrosive, colourless, and combustible liquid that has a pungent or unpleasantly bitter smell.

The Asia Pacific is the largest acrylic acid market. In the Asia Pacific, the People's Republic of China is the leading regional market and represents the fastest-growing industry in the region. China offers low production costs and an abundant supply availability to other regional markets. The industry in the Asia Pacific region is being driven by the expected growth in industries like construction, personal care products, and paints (coating), which use acrylic acid and its derivatives in their products. The region is also a major exporter of the substance, with the excess supply being exported to regions like the Middle East and Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, and Latin America to meet the rising demand from industries like acrylate esters and consumer packaged goods.

The demand for the product is being significantly driven by rising sectors like construction, superabsorbent polymers, and automobile industries, particularly in emerging economies like China, India, and Brazil. The increasing per capita consumption, the growing penetration rate of diapers, and the rising disposable incomes in India, China, and other Asian countries are further enabling the growth of the industry. An expected increase in the demand for the product from the surface coatings industry in the Asia Pacific and the seasonal demand from the construction industry in North America and Europe will continue to drive the industry of the product.

 

Properties and Applications

Acrylic acid is widely used as an absorbent in various products. Due to its highly reactive nature, it reacts with alcohol to form acrylates, which are used in a variety of polymers, which find extensive applications in hygiene products. Its various application sectors are:

Market Analysis

The global acrylic acid market is expected to be driven by the improving demand for the product in surface coatings in the Asia Pacific region. Its demand is expected to be mainly driven by the superabsorbent polymers industry. In the emerging nations, such as China and India, the industry for disposable baby diapers is witnessing a stable growth due to the low penetration rate of diapers, which is further expected to support the growth of the acrylic acid industry. The industry is also expected to be driven by industries such as water treatment and detergent co-builders, which are projected to witness a healthy growth during the forecast period.

The increasing demand for personal hygiene, coatings, and paints from emerging countries like Brazil, China, and India, is propelling the growth of the acrylic acid market. The growth of industrial sectors like construction and automobile are acting as an additional impetus for the industry growth. In the United States, the European Union, and the Asia Pacific the automobile industry is witnessing a growing demand, which in turn is driving the demand for the product. In North America, the increasing demand from the automobile and construction industries is the primary driver for the product demand. In the spring and summer season, there is an improvement in the seasonal demand for the product from the construction sector in the region.

 

Competitive Landscape

October 2020- Arkema successfully started a its new 90,000-ton acrylic acid reactor at its Clear Lake site in Texas to attract consumers from paints, superabsorbents, water treatment, and adhesives markets in North America.

August 2018- BASF PETRONAS Chemicals announced the expansion of the production capacities of its acrylic acid and butyl acrylate plants in Kuantan, Malaysia.

June 2016: BASF SE (ETR: BAS) inaugurated its production complex for acrylic acid, butyl acrylate, and superabsorbent polymers in Camaçari, Bahia, Brazil.

The report gives a detailed analysis of the following key players in the global acrylic acid market, covering their competitive landscape, capacity, and latest developments like mergers, acquisitions, and investments, expansions of capacity, and plant turnarounds:

  • BASF SE
  • Nippon Shokubai Co.,Ltd.
