Acrylonitrile is a colorless liquid that is miscible with water and as toxic fumes used in the manufacture of acrylic fibers and resins, rubber and thermoplastics. Acrylonitrile has the ability of endowing durability, strength and heat resistance which offer its use in automotive, construction and consumer goods industry. Acrylonitrile is an organic compound produced through the ammonia catalysis of propylene. This compound is used to manufacture acrylic fibers, which are further processed and used to produce sweaters, socks and hats.
Figure 1: Global Acrylonitrile Market by Value 2015 - 2023
The global acrylonitrile market was sized over USD xx billion in 2015. The global acrylonitrile market is projected to reach USD xx.xx billion by 2023, growing with a CAGR of x.xx% to x.xx% from 2017 to 2023. The global market for acrylonitrile is driven by rapid growth in construction industry primarily. Increasing demand from consumer appliances industry is likely to drive the global acrylonitrile market over the forecast period. Furthermore, rising demand from automotive industry in applications of acrylonitrile such as acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and synthetic rubbers are anticipated to drive the growth of this market. However, use of low priced polyester fibers in replacement of acrylic fibers in the textile industry and feedstock shortage due to the growth in the shale gas production are the prime restraining factors to the growth of global acrylonitrile market. Nevertheless, rising demand for wastewater treatment and low per capita consumption of acrylonitrile products as well as more investment in automotive sector will bring more opportunities to the global acrylonitrile market over the forecast period.
The report segments the global acrylonitrile market by end user and region. The global acrylonitrile market is segmented on the basis of end users as acrylic fibers, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polyacrylamide (PAM), nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) and others. Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) sub-segments dominates the global acrylonitrile market due to rising demand from automotive sector and increasing investment in automotive sector.
