Acrylic ester is used in water-based coating solutions in various applications, such as construction, textiles, adhesives, detergents and others. It has replaced solvent based paints and sealants. High thermal stability and oil resistance are key features of acrylic esters. Its non-toxic nature is responsible for growing adoption in various industries. It is used as building blocks for industrial polymers.
Demand for coating from construction industry and expansion of butyl acrylates in China are factors propelling the world acrylic ester market. However, slow recovery of the U.S. housing market and variation in raw material prices are hindering growth in the market. Demand for PPMA resins and commercial production of bio-based acrylic acid derivatives are expected to create better opportunities in the market.
