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.
Expansion of Production Capacity
To cater to the growing demand for acrylic acid and its derivatives such as methacrylic esters and methyl methacrylate across the globe, manufacturers are focusing on expanding their production capacity by collaborations and joint ventures. For instance, in 2018, BASF SE announced to increase the production capacity at its acrylic acid and butyl acrylate plants in Kuantan, Malaysia (60:40 joint venture site with Petronas) to cater to the rising demand for acrylic monomers in the Asia Pacific region.
The global acrylic acid market is expected to experience healthy growth, averaging ~5% per annum. Further, high growth regions are cited as East Asia and South Asia. The demand for acrylic acid is expected to increase over the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for superabsorbent polymers in the manufacturing of baby diapers and feminine hygiene products.

Acrylic acid, also known as propionic acid, is the simplest carboxylic acid. Currently, two main technologies are used for the production of acrylic acid and its derivatives, i.e. esters-propylene oxidation technology and acetylene Reppe technology. Some processes such as oxidation from propane and bio-based process based on lactic acid are yet to be commercialized. Acrylic acid (GAA) is a clear, colorless liquid, and having similar odor like acetic acid & is highly reactive compound
