What are Key Challenges for Global Emulsion Polymers Market?

  • Fluctuations in raw material prices are likely to hamper the growth of emulsion polymers market, creating a direct impact on their prices. Furthermore, the raw material demand and supply gap is anticipated to increase, as their consumption in other end-user industries is likely to increase in the next couple of years.
  • Butadiene is extracted by steam cracking of naphtha, ethane, propane, and C4 hydrocarbons. Dehydrogenation of butane and butylene is another conventional method for producing butadiene.
  • Variations in prices of these primary petrochemicals such as ethane and naphtha coupled with their growing consumption by other end-user industries are likely to affect the butadiene prices by 2027. As these petrochemical feed stocks are dependent on crude oil reserves, petrochemical prices are subjected to further volatility.

Lucrative Opportunities for Acrylic Emulsion in Global Emulsion Polymers Market

  • Acrylics constitutes a large chunk of the global emulsion polymers market as well. Reports suggest that acrylics held a significant share in the global market in 2018. The ability of acrylics in imparting the property of quick-drying to paints has been the primary factor driving the consumption of acrylics across the globe. The fact that acrylic paints are superior in quality and provide excellent water resistance, strength, and adhesion has also sparked an interest for such paints amongst consumers.
  • Supported by these drivers, the acrylics segment is anticipated to represent an opportunity worth more than US$21 bn in 2027 as it promises to expand at a CAGR of more than 5.5% between 2019 and 2027. Innovations in acrylic emulsions such as the introduction of water-based acrylic emulsion polymer products are expected to open up a new category of products in the market, thereby giving rise to a never-seen-before demand and opportunity. These paints will have the ability to gel with water-based inks and overprint varnishes.

Asia Pacific to Dominate Global Emulsion Polymers Market

  • Asia Pacific has held a dominant share in the global emulsion polymers market with the support from developing countries of India and China. As the building and construction activities in these developing countries grows, it is expected to make a dramatic contribution to the regional revenues of this market. Furthermore, the flourishing demand for adhesives is likely to create an immense demand for emulsion polymers. Between 2019 and 2027, the Asia Pacific emulsion polymers market is expected to progress at a CAGR of more than 6.5%.
  • Acrylics, a product of emulsion polymers, has been extensively consumed across Asia Pacific. The phenomenal demand for paints and coatings has been the key factor leading to the substantial uptake of acrylics.
