Global acrylic acid market size is anticipated to reach over $ 21 billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period on account of growing demand for superabsorbent polymers. Acrylic acid is an organic compound and is generally used as feedstock for the preparation of acylate esters. However, strict government regulations towards environmental safety and human health may act as challenge for the growth of the market.

The market for acrylic acid can be segmented based on the derivative type, application and region. In terms of application, the market can be segmented into surface coatings, adhesives & sealants, diapers, plastic additives, water treatment, thickeners, dispersants, among others. In 2018, diapers dominated global acrylic acid market on account of growing popularity of the superabsorbent polymers (SAP) and their property to absorb and hold water. The use of acrylic acid is anticipated to increase in the surface coating application segment during forecast period owing to shift from solvent based coatings to water-based coatings, which are made using acrylic acid.

Regionally, global acrylic acid market has been segmented as North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, Asia-Pacific is the largest market for acrylic acid, globally. Markedly, China is the largest as well as the fastest-growing market for acrylic acid in the region. Furthermore, the use of acrylic acid derivatives in industries, including construction, paints (coating) and personal care products are anticipated to witness higher growth in Asia-Pacific region.

Some of the key players operating in global acrylic acid market include, Dow Chemical Company, BASF SE, Arkema SA, The Lubrozol Corporation, LG Chem Ltd., Evonik Industries AG, PJSC SIBUR Holding, Myriant Corporation, SunVic Chemical Holdings Limited, Hexion Inc., among others.
