The Global Acrylic acid market is valued at $11.2 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach $23.4 billion by 2022 growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9.64%. The factors that are driving the market include huge demand for superabsorbent polymers, and prevalent adoption of acrylic based products in rising countries such as Asia Pacific. Strict government regulations are enforced on the acrylic acid usage due to rising environmental concerns in North America, Europe, etc. Producers of acrylic acid are focusing on R&D to locate the bio-based roots for the production of acrylic acid. Moreover, demand for Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) resins in different industries creates opportunities for growth of the market.

Acrylic polymers segment is projected to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period. Among the end users surfactants is the fastest growing segment, with a CAGR of more than 8% during the forecast period. Personal care products formed the largest end-user industry and accounted for 1/3rd of total market volume in 2014. At present, acrylic acid is mainly consumed in manufacturing diapers and this is expected to drive the global demand throughout the forecast period.

Asia Pacific dominated the global market with more than 50% in 2014. Low manufacturing cost coupled with superabsorbent polymers in countries such as India and China has persistent demand for acrylic acid in the region. China is the major consumer of acrylic acid in Asia Pacific region and the increasing applications of super absorbent polymers in this region provides a strong growth potential.

The key players in the Acrylic acid market include BASF SE, Dow Chemical Company, Nippon, Arkema SA, Evonik Industries AG, LG Chem LTD, Novozymes, Cargill, Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation, and OPX Bio.
