The global acrylate industry was valued at USD 6.28 billion in 2019 and is predicted to reach USD 9.35 billion by 2025, with a compound annual rate of 6.5% from 2020 to 2025. A strong call for acrylate in adhesive and paint applications and coatings are the driving force behind the acrylate industry worldwide. The major fashion seen in the acrylate industry is the rising customer preference for acrylic-based emulsions over oil-based goods. This change is primarily attributed to the benefits of these products, which include short drying time, colorfastness, wear and water resistance, and environmental friendliness. Furthermore, water-based paints are durable, stable under extreme conditions and free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which encourages their application in interior and exterior wall coverings.
Acrylic acid is an organic compound that has a characteristic acidic or acidic odor. A large part of this compound is employed as a filler to obtain acrylate esters. Acrylate esters have a broad spectrum of uses. Bio-based acrylates represent enormous potential for players in the acrylate industry, in terms of diversifying their product portfolio and escalating their industry share. This can be mainly attributed to allergic skin diseases associated with the main acrylates. The renewable and non-toxic nature of bio-based variants should create a number of opportunities in the coming years. Businesses develop and industry processes to produce it from petrochemical products. Owing to the escalation in the cost of oil worldwide, makers are utilizing bio-based techniques to produce this unsaturated carboxylic acid and acrylates from renewable resources. Applications in detergents, adult incontinence and personal care products have contributed to the escalated call for acrylic acid.
Recent Developments and Trends
Acrylate Market Drivers
Factors driving expansion are the rising call for superabsorbent polymers, the widespread use of acrylic-based goods in growing nations like Asia Pacific, and rising businesses like adhesives and sealants. Strict government regulations are imposed on the use of this organic compound due to growing environmental concerns in areas such as North America, Europe, etc. to protect the environment and avoid occupational exposure. Large amount of butyl acrylate employed in the automotive businesses, which will drive the expansion of the industry. Another factor driving industry expansion is the limitations of VOC emissions in the country.
Due to possible limitations, its expansion is limited. Strict government guidelines on acrylate removal are also acting as a limiting factor for this industry expansion.
Producers focus on research and development to find the organic roots needed for production in order to increase their industry share and size. Also, the commercialization of bio-based compounds and the saturated call for PMMA resins in various businesses would open the doors for investors to invest, creating many opportunities for expansion in the near future. Many new applications have emerged as a result of commercialization of manufacturing techniques for bio-based products. The sector has enormous potential in the future, as it would create a range of applications, especially in businesses such as surfactants, surface coatings, adhesives and sealants, plastic additives and comonomers, etc. Therefore, understanding the sector would provide insight into the entire segment, and thus help stakeholders make strategic decisions.
Strict regulations relating to production of acrylate will be a major challenge to the industry expansion.

The Asia-Pacific acrylate industry is the largest and fastest growing industry due to the growing population and disposable income leading to strong expansion in the packaging industry. In addition, escalated industrialization, urbanization, and the rise of residential construction have resulted in the expansion of acrylate in the paint and coatings segment. Globally, APAC was the largest acrylate industry in 2020 and is predicted to continue the trend during the foreseen period. This can be mainly attributed to the presence of established actors, the escalated call for water-based paints and coatings, and the increase in infrastructure development activities, which has led to the call for acrylates. Considering the future industry scenario, China is predicted to dominate the region's industry, generating $ 6,805.0 million worth of revenue in 2025. The country's high-volume downstream manufacturing capabilities and level rise Life and per capita income would stimulate call for acrylic formulations, which act as building blocks for thousands of intermediate polymers employed in surface coatings, textiles, adhesives, and plastics.
Asia-Pacific was the largest income-generating region that is predicted to continue to dominate income sources until 2025. Latin America and the Middle East and Africa are the region that will be the fastest growing at a notable annual rate over the same period, offering many expansion prospects. The factors driving expansion in the region are the widespread adoption of renewable roots for production and growing businesses, such as coatings, sealants, adhesives, etc. Furthermore, Latin America and the Middle East and Africa have lucrative opportunities for the production of crude compounds due to the presence of the world's largest petrochemical sites. These factors have the effect of stimulating call in Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.
