United States Polymer Emulsion Market Outlook

The United States polymer emulsion market size reached approximately USD 5.88 billion in 2023. The market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% between 2024 and 2032, reaching a value of around USD 10.72 billion by 2032.

 

Key Takeaways

  • Vinyl acetate polymers are expected to constitute a major share of demand in the market in the forecast period.
  • Global transition towards clean energy is expected to fuel the United States polymer emulsion market.
  • Paint and coatings are expected to dominate the demand for polymer emulsions in the US market.

 

Polymer emulsions refer to the dispersion of tiny polymeric particles of size 100-1000 nanometres in an aqueous solution. They are obtained from the process of free radical polymerisation, where organic monomers are emulsified into the universal solvent (water) with the help of stabilisers and radical forming initiators. Their increasing demand is attributed to their emission control abilities and their diverse qualities.

 

The market is being driven by the growth in demand for polymer emulsion from end-use industries like building and construction, textiles and coatings, and chemicals, among others. With the expansion of new housing projects, the need for adhesives and sealants derived from polymer emulsions is rising significantly, fuelling the United States polymer emulsion market growth.

 

Key Trends and Developments

Green energy transition; increasing AI adoption; development of circular economy; and focus on building brand transparency are the major trends impacting the United States polymer emulsion market growth.

The adoption of AI by chemical companies is expected to accelerate innovation, boost productivity, enhance decision-making, and lead to better customer relations. AI tools can lead to optimisation of operations, boost the discovery of new production methods, and reduce the distance between factory and market. Thus, technological advancements and innovations are expected to lead to United States polymer emulsion market growth in the forecast period.

 

Market Segmentation

“United States Polymer Emulsion Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032” offers a detailed analysis of the market based on the following segments:

 

Market Breakup Categories
Product Acrylics, Styrene-Butadiene Latex, Vinyl Acetate Polymers, Others

End Use Chemicals, Textile and Coatings, Building and Construction, Automotive, Others
Region New England, Mideast, Great Lakes, Plains, Southeast, Southwest, Rocky Mountain, Far West

 

Vinyl  acetate polymers are expected to constitute a major part in the United States polymer emulsion market share in the forecast period

Polymers like vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer emulsions have good adhesion properties and they meet the regulatory requirements for non-migration of bonds, which makes them a popular choice for glueing corrugated boxes and paper bags. Their low VOC content and positive environmental profile make them the ideal choice for the packaging industry, which is expected to lead to the United States polymer emulsion market expansion in the coming years.

 

The increasing focus on sustainability is also prompting companies to manufacture polymer emulsions for wastewater treatment. This, along with the growth in demand for other emulsion polymers like acrylics and styrene-butadiene latex, among others, is aiding the market growth.

 

Paints and coatings sector represent a significant share of the United States polymer emulsion market

Polymer emulsions impart colour to buildings and protect them against dirt and moisture. They constitute 5-50% of the total mass of paint in the mixture and are formulated with other chemicals like thickeners, wetting agents, inorganic pigments, and biocides.

 

Pure acrylate-based emulsion polymers are extremely popular for applications related to interior coating homes, due to their glossy look and shine. For exterior architectural coatings, pure acrylate-based polymers are mixed with hydrophobic co-monomers, including styrene and vinyl acetate to withstand microbiological attacks and extreme weather conditions. This is expected to lead to the United States polymer emulsion market growth in the coming years.

 

The demand for polymer emulsions for application in adhesives and coatings is also expected to increase in the forecast period due to their excellent rheological profile and their low VOC content, which makes them environmentally friendly.

 

Competitive Landscape

Major market players are designing innovative strategies to boost research and development of polymer emulsions, which is expected to drive the market
