Acrylic acid Market Size Worth 22.96 Billion in 2032 | Emergen Research

Rising superabsorbent polymers and increasing adoption of acrylic acid in the construction industry and need for adhesives and sealants are key factors driving acrylic acid Market revenue growth

Vancouver, Nov. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global acrylic acid market size was USD 14.70 Billion in 2022 and is expected to register a rapid revenue CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period. Key drivers include the surging demand for superabsorbent polymers, the increasing adoption of acrylic acid in construction, and the growing need for adhesives and sealants.

Acrylic acid, a highly reactive carboxylic acid with versatile applications, is pivotal in adhesives, surface coatings, cements, and more. Its purity, especially in technical and glacial grades, is vital for industries like chemical, polymer, water treatment, and textiles. The rising global demand for paints and coatings, driven by the construction industry's popularity, further contributes to market growth.

Meeting Industry Demand:

Manufacturers in the acrylic acid market are witnessing increased orders and sales volumes due to its indispensable role in adhesives and coatings. Notably, TASNEE, represented by Saudi Acrylic Acid Company, signed a butanol supply contract with SABIC in 2020 to enhance acrylic acid plant productivity and meet the rising demand for butyl acrylate in the region.

Challenges in Growth:

Despite the positive outlook, challenges persist. Acrylic acid's toxicity and potential skin allergies, coupled with operational complexities, pose hurdles to market growth. Strict quality control measures are crucial, and the hazardous nature of acrylic acid necessitates advanced technology, specialized equipment, and skilled labor, contributing to higher operational expenses.
