 Acrylic Acid Derivatives Market to grow by USD 4767.26 million between 2024-2028

According to a research report “ Acrylic Acid Derivatives Market” by Product (Acrylic ester, Acrylic polymer, Others) Application (Surface coatings, Adhesives and sealants, Plastic additives, Others) Geography (APAC, North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, South America)- Global Forecast to 2028 published by Technavio, the market size is estimated to grow by USD 4767.26 million at a CAGR of  5.56% during the forecast period. The acrylic acid derivatives market experiences significant growth, particularly in the surface coating sector. Acrylic esters serve as essential binders in water-borne coatings, which are increasingly replacing solvent-borne alternatives due to their lower volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. Regulatory bodies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), have imposed restrictions on the use of VOC-containing and harmful products, thereby driving increased consumption of acrylic derivatives in industrial coatings and insulation applications..

By Product, the Acrylic ester segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024.

Acrylic acid derivatives, specifically acrylic resins, are essential components in the production of binders and film-forming agents for both water-based and solvent-based paints. These derivatives significantly improve paint film attributes, such as adhesion, durability, and weather resistance. Acrylic-based paints, renowned for their quick drying time and superior color retention, dominate various markets, including architectural and automotive coatings. Architectural coatings, including interior and exterior paints, benefit from acrylic resins' protective and decorative properties. In the automotive sector, acrylic resins are utilized in primers, basecoats, and clearcoats due to their excellent adhesion, corrosion resistance, and environmental durability.

By Application, Surface coatings  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024.

The acrylic ester segment, driven by the production of methyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate, butyl acrylate, and ethyl hexyl acrylate, dominated the global acrylic acid derivatives market in 2023. Acrylic acid serves as a crucial raw material in the synthesis of acrylic esters. These derivatives are integral to various industries, including plastic additives, textiles, sealants, surface coatings, and adhesives. The expansion of the construction and automotive sectors, leading to increased demand for paints and coatings, presents significant growth prospects for the acrylates market. Furthermore, the enhancement of hygiene products necessitates greater adhesive usage, thereby boosting the demand for acrylic esters worldwide during the forecast period.

APAC is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024.

The APAC region holds a commanding market position in the global acrylic acid derivatives industry, accounting for approximately XX% of the total revenue. This dominance is primarily driven by robust demand in China and India. The sector's growth is fueled by expanding applications in surfactants, coatings, personal care, and adhesives. Additionally, the preference for high-quality acrylic acid derivatives with functional monomers in surface coating applications further bolsters the region's market leadership.
