Acrylic acid is a versatile monomer that can be polymerized to complex molecular arrangements. Acrylic acid is produced by oxidation from propane and bio-based process based on lactic acid. Whereas, acrylic polymers are derived from acrylic and methacrylic acid.

These are commonly known as polyacrylate and formed by multiple monomer chains. Polyacrylates are often copolymerized to achieve desired properties. While, acrylic esters are derivatives of acrylic acid and are used in a wide range of applications such as coatings, adhesives and sealants, textiles, plastic additives, and diapers, among others.

Use of Advanced Acrylic-based Polymers in Major End-use Industries

Acrylic acid-based polymers have replaced conventionally used materials in major end-use industries, such as automotive, building and construction, electronics, and others. Acrylic acid-based elastomers such as AEM (Ethylene Acrylic Elastomers), are used as an alternative to synthetic rubber in various applications, such as an automotive gasket, hoses, and others.

Due to the improved properties of AEM, such as strength, and resistance, among others, there is an increasing demand for acrylic acid from the polymer industry during the forecast period. Furthermore, the rise in demand for methacrylate-based polymers for the manufacturing of lighting fixtures, glazing, automotive rear lights, and electronic displays has witnessed significant growth, which in turn, represents prominent growth in the acrylic acid market.

Growing Demand for Water Treatment Polymer Likely to Propel the Demand for Acrylic Acid

Polymer derived from acrylic acid, such as polyacrylamide is used as a flocculent in the water treatment process, mineral processing, and detergents. Growing urbanization, coupled with the increasing emphasis of government towards water cleaning, is likely to propel the acrylic acid market due to the usage of acrylic acid to treat/recycle wastewater.

Due to the government regulations, manufacturers are bound to treat the effluent before releasing it into sea and oceans, which leads to increase in demand for polyacrylamide, which indirectly creates a positive impact on the acrylic acid market.
