Tert Butyl Acrylate Market Segment Analysis - By Form
Homopolymers segment held the largest share of more than 30% in the global market in 2020. Homopolymers are polymers made up of just one type of monomers, with properties such as excellent weight-to-strength ratio, stiffer than copolymers, low friction & wear, good resistance to chemicals, low density, and high resistance to moisture. The properties of Homopolymers make them suitable to use across various industry applications, which in turn drives the market growth.
In addition, TBA form Homopolymers are lightweight, which improves mold filling, increases the design flexibility, and capable of absorbing more energy this also makes them being widely used by different industries like textile, electrical & electronics, building & construction, and others. For instance, Homopolymers from TBA are used in plastic manufacturing companies for their durability and strength.
Tert Butyl Acrylate Market Segment Analysis - By Application
Coating and Inks held the largest share of more than 25% in the global market in 2020. Tert Butyl Acrylate (TBA) is added as an additive in coatings & inks, which provides chemical resistance, heat resistance, reduce the dry time, low viscosity, scratch resistance, and excellent weatherability to the applicant surface. Moreover, due to these properties, the demand for TBA based coatings & inks is growing across various end-use industry applications like interior & exterior body of vehicles, in printing & press industry, for digital printing, and textile industry. Furthermore, these coatings are used in the construction industry to protect the structure from erosion in the exterior walls, resistance to dirt, and also used as floor coatings.
The use of butyl acetate, epoxy resin, nitrocellulose-based products also provide chemical resistance for industrial machinery and tools, which provide longer shelf life, wear resistance, and reduces the maintenance cost. Thus, the growing industrialization further drives the demand for coatings and inks, which in turn drives the market growth. Whereas, the growing uses of thermal barrier coatings across the automotive, refinery, and aerospace industry is also contributing to the growth of this market.
Tert Butyl Acrylate Market Segment Analysis - By End-Use Industry
Automotive segment is projected to witness the highest CAGR of 7.2% in the TBA market during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the surging uses of coatings and sealants in automobiles. Automotive manufacturers use these coating to provide high-grade automotive refinishing paint and protect the vehicles from corrosion. Whereas, the growing demand for lightweight and electric vehicles for better fuel efficiency and lowering the carbon emission is set to drive the market's growth.
For instance, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) report, in September 2020, the sale of new light vehicles like sedans, crossovers, SUVs, multi-purpose vehicles, and minibusses have increased by 8%. In addition, according to the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) report, in India, the domestic passenger vehicle sales increased by 26.5% in September 2020, showing a positive recovery in the automotive industry. Thus, the growth in the automotive sector is likely to boost the growth of tert butyl acrylate market size.
