Acrylic Resins Market Outlook - 2021–2028

The global acrylic resins market size was valued at $18.7 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $28.3 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2021 to 2028.

Acrylic resins, a type of thermoplastic or thermosetting polymer, is produced from acrylic and methacrylic ester monomers. Acrylic resins can be solvent-based and water-based systems. The density of acrylic resin is in the range 1.02-1.19 g/cc. Acrylic resins have high water resistance, high adhesion, and these are resistant to cracking. This is majorly used in molding materials, coatings, and adhesives. 

Acrylic-Resins-Market-2021-2028

Growth in application of acrylic resins in various end-use industries such as building & construction and automotive is expected to boost the market growth. In addition, owing to high adhesion, acrylic resins are widely used as primary binders in paints and coatings. Moreover, rise in number of new city projects in emerging nations, such as China, India, and Japan is expected to fuel demand for acrylic resins. Increase in population and rapid urbanization in Asia-Pacific and need for improved infrastructure and residential spaces are anticipated to play a crucial role in the acrylic resins market growth. The total population of Asia-Pacific represent around 60% of total world population and is expected to increase 5.2 billion (0.9 billion increase) by 2050. Moreover, high durability and chemical resistance make it suitable for electronics application such as PC screens, display windows for cellular phones, and light guide panels. 

However, adverse effects of solvent-based acrylic resins and environment regulations regarding high volatile organic contents (VOCs) may negatively impact the market growth. Moreover, adverse effects may lead to headache, dizziness, and light‐headedness progressing to unconsciousness and seizures. Irritation of nose, eye and throat are also some of the other effects of working with these systems.

Nonetheless, development of bio-based resin systems is crucial for sustaining demand in projected timeframe. Sustainable solution is the main goal of developing green or bio-based paints and coating systems. Environment sustainability encompasses every stage of coating’s life cycle i.e., from raw material to resin manufacturing and formulation level. Such developments are expected to provide new market opportunities in the coming years.

The global acrylic resins market is segmented on the basis of solvency, application, end-user, and region. On the basis of solvency, it is divided into water-based, solvent-based, and others. By application, it is categorized into paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, elastomers, and others. By end-user, the market is classified into building & construction, paper & paperboard, consumer goods, automotive, electrical & electronics, and others.
