Market Dynamics:

Growth in population coupled with rapid urbanization has surged the growth of the building & construction sector in both developed and developing economies, where acrylic polymers-based paints and coatings are widely used for flooring, wall finishing, and roofing applications. This is expected to boost the demand for the acrylic polymers market in the booming building & construction sector. In addition, strong economic growth has surged the establishments of industries where acrylic coatings are used as a protective coating for washers, driers, steel pipes, fittings, structural inserts, and industrial equipment. This is expected to propel the growth of the acrylic polymers market.

However, volatility in prices of acrylic polymer is expected to hamper the growth of the acrylic polymers market during the forecast period. On the contrary, the rapid growth of additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, presents a significant opportunity for the acrylic polymers market. Acrylic polymers are well-suited for additive manufacturing processes due to their excellent melt flow characteristics, thermal stability, and compatibility with various 3D printing technologies such as fused deposition modeling (FDM) and stereolithography (SLA). Acrylic-based filaments and resins are widely used in 3D printing applications for prototyping, product development, and custom manufacturing of complex parts and components. With ongoing advancements in 3D printing technology, materials, and software, there are vast opportunities for acrylic polymer manufacturers to innovate and develop specialized materials tailored to the unique requirements of additive manufacturing applications.

Segment Overview:

The acrylic polymers market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. On the basis of type, the market is categorized into solvent borne and water borne. By application, the market is divided into paints and coatings, adhesives and sealants, industrial water treatment additives, textiles, cleaning/detergents, super absorbent polymer, and others. Region-wise, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Acrylic Polymer Market by Type

In 2022, the water borne segment was the largest revenue generator, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. Stricter environmental regulations regarding volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) drive the demand for environmentally friendly coatings and adhesives. Waterborne acrylic polymers have low VOC content as compared to solvent-based alternatives, making them compliant with regulations and suitable for green building standards. Furthermore, waterborne acrylic polymers offer improved health and safety benefits compared to solvent-based counterparts. They have lower toxicity levels, reduced flammability, and emit fewer harmful fumes during application, contributing to safer working environments for manufacturers, applicators, and end-users.

Acrylic Polymer Market by Application

By application, the textiles segment dominated the global market in 2022, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.0% during forecast period. Acrylic polymers offer desirable properties for textile applications, including softness, warmth, and resilience. Acrylic fibers can mimic the look and feel of natural fibers like wool while offering enhanced durability and colorfastness. They also have excellent resistance to sunlight, mildew, and chemicals, making them suitable for outdoor and industrial textiles. Furthermore, they provide a cost-effective alternative to natural fibers such as wool and cashmere. They can be produced at a lower cost and in greater quantities, making them accessible for a wide range of textile applications, including apparel, upholstery, carpets, and outdoor fabrics.

Acrylic Polymer Market by Region

The Asia-Pacific acrylic polymers market size is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period and accounted for 45.5% of the acrylic polymers market share in 2022. The Asia-Pacific region has experienced rapid economic growth over the past few decades, leading to increased industrialization, urbanization, and consumer spending. This economic expansion has driven demand for acrylic polymers in various sectors such as construction, automotive, electronics, textiles, and packaging. Additionally, many countries in the Asia-Pacific region are investing heavily in infrastructure development, including construction of buildings, roads, bridges, and transportation networks. Acrylic polymers are used in a wide range of construction materials such as paints, coatings, adhesives, sealants, and waterproofing compounds, driving demand for these products.
