Asia-Pacific: The potential market for acrylates and acrylics

In the year 2012, Asia-Pacific region was the second largest market for acrylic acid and would
remain in that position till 2018. The European market was the largest consumer for acrylic acid
derivatives in 2012, whereas, North American market was the largest consumer of acrylic acid in
2012. The demand trend for acrylic acid and its derivatives is expected to increase gradually in
Asia-Pacific till 2018.

The developing countries in Asia-Pacific region such as, China and South Korea represent the
prominent markets for acrylics. The rising disposable income levels of the individuals, growing
population, and strong economic conditions support promising growth in super absorbent
polymers. These conditions have attracted many global players such as BASF (Germany), Dow
Chemical Company (U.S.), Nippon Shokubai (Japan), and others to venture into these markets
with local production facilities. This has driven the demand for acrylic acid and its derivatives in
the region significantly.

Super absorbent Polymers to gain more attention in the coming years

Due to increasing population, improving lifespan, and other demands have significantly
improved the demand and growth of super absorbent polymers market. The major application of
SAP is found in personal disposable hygiene products such as baby diapers, adult protective
underwear, and sanitary napkins. It is also used for blocking water penetration in underground
power or communications cables, horticultural water retention agents, control of spill and waste
aqueous fluids, and artificial snow for motion picture and stage production. The super absorbent
polymers have already started gaining a significant market share among acrylic polymers
globally. Even the water treatment polymers have high potential for deep penetration rate in the
developing countries. The SAP and WTP are widely preferred across the globe.

Surface coatings occupies major share among the applications of acrylic acid and its

Surface coatings are the largest application for acrylic acid and its derivatives, accounting for
almost half of the overall acrylic acid and its derivatives market in 2012. Due to increasing
population and improved lifestyle, the applications have significantly increased the demand for
acrylic acid and its derivatives in the past few years. Many of the acrylic acid manufacturers and
thereby OEM providers are shifting their focus towards developing regions. This would help the
acrylic acid and its derivatives market to grow in developing countries. On the contrary, the
demand for plastic additives is growing on a long run and hence the demand for co-monomers
would grow at a slower rate.

The report covers acrylic acid and its derivatives market in terms of volume (kilo tons) and
revenue ($million) across regions such as Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, and ROW along
with the countries with major markets in each region. The report explains qualitative and
quantitative aspects of different acrylic esters such as methyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate, butyl
acrylate, 2-ethylhexyl acrylate, and others. The report also explains qualitative and quantitative
aspects of different acrylic polymers such as elastomers, super absorbent polymers, and water
treatment polymers. The report briefly explains the demand for the acrylic acid and its
derivatives market by application type and geography. It also explains trends in its demand from
year 2011 to 2018. However, the scope of the report is limited to analysis, estimations, and
forecast about acrylic acid and its derivatives based on their derivatives, application, and

The report also includes an analysis of the value chain, Porters five forces analysis, and the
competitive landscape. The market has been identified with major players as BASF (Germany),
Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Arkema (France), Nippon Shokubai (Japan); additionally, 25
key players of this market have been profiled.
Rising demand of super absorbent polymers

Substitution to higher performance formulations and increasing building and construction
industries in emerging countries are the factors driving acrylic polymers into coatings and
sealants. However, growing demand for baby diapers in emerging countries such as China and
South Korea has been increasing the demand for SAPs and WTPs. This led to growing
preference of super absorbent polymers across the globe.

Scope of the Report

The acrylic acid and its derivatives go hand in hand. The value chain has been described in detail
in the report. However, the scope of the report covers both acrylic acid and its derivatives
markets independently and separately.

This research report categorizes the global market for acrylic acid and its derivatives on the basis
of derivative types, applications types, and geography; forecasting revenue and analyzing trends
in each of the submarkets
