Acrylic Polymer Emulsion Market - Forecast(2023 - 2028)
Acrylic Polymer Emulsion Market Overview
Acrylic Polymer Emulsion market size is forecast to reach US$18.1 billion by 2026, after growing at a CAGR of 6.2% during 2021-2026. The emulsion polymerization process is opted for developing acrylic polymer emulsions. The acrylic polymer droplets are combined in water and then polymerized to obtain acrylic polymer emulsions. These emulsions are versatile due to the acrylic esters functionality. The acrylic polymer emulsions are used for waterproofing, printing inks, polymer coatings, and other applications. Acrylic Polymer Emulsion finds its application in many end-use industries such as build & construction, automotive, paper & packaging, and textile due to its low volatile emission compound (VOCs) emission and excellent durability properties. The growing consumer awareness regarding water-based paints/waterborne coatings is one of the primary factors expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period. The growing packaging industry along with the increasing adoption of acrylic polymer emulsions among packaging companies are also boosting the market growth. However, the fluctuating raw material prices and stringent environmental regulations are likely to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting different industries, one of the few industries that were largely hit to some extent was the coating industry. Due to the Covid-19, the construction and textile industries are impacted very badly that further impacted the acrylic coating industry. The slow down in residential constructions due to lack of raw material supplies, and workforce are impacting the market negatively. The textile industry is also registered low revenue during the pandemic, which in turn drive less demand for printing ink or emulsion paints. According to the data published by the Ministry of Textiles, it is estimated that the Indian textile industry revenues have dropped by 28%-30% during the pandemic period. However, the construction, textile, and packaging companies resumed their operation in 2021, which may positively impact the market.
