Figure: Global Emulsion Polymers Market
Emulsion Polymers are obtained by
polymerization and emulsion of surfactants, monomers (styrene and
butadiene) and water. They are monomer dissolved in water and are known
as waterborne solvent due to the water content. Due to its low Volatile
Organic Compound (VOC) and Vinyl Acetate (VAc) content emulsion polymers
act as substitute for solvent borne polymers. Emulsion polymers have
better recyclability and life than solvent borne polymers. They have
high molecular weight which results in fast polymerization and are
widely used in various industries. On the basis of end-users the global
emulsion polymers market can be segmented as paper & paperboard,
adhesives, textile & non-woven, paints & coatings and others
(leather, etc.). These polymers are widely used in several industries
amongst which paints & coatings is the largest segment and is
expected to continue over the forecast period. On the basis of product
type emulsion polymers market can be segmented as vinyl acetate
polymers, acrylics, styrene-butadiene latex, polyurethane dispersions
and others (silicone, hybrid epoxy, etc.). Polyurethane dispersions
segment is expected to be the fastest growing in future as it is comply
with several regulations of low VOC content.
Global emulsion polymer market is pacing
up due to high demand for paints & coatings in the building &
construction and automotive industries in Asia-Pacific region. Countries
such as India, China, South Korea and Vietnam are in the developing
phase, growth in industries has escalated demand for emulsion polymers.
On the other hand, unstable prices and stringent government regulations
associated with raw materials such as butadiene, styrene and urethane
are some of the restraints for the market growth. However, awareness and
production of bio-based emulsion polymers and use of water-borne
acrylic dispersion is likely to serve opportunities for the emulsion
polymer market growth in coming future.
Emulsion polymers market is fragmented
and geographically it is segmented into North America, Latin America,
Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe and Rest of the world amongst which APAC
followed by North America is the largest market. In Europe, countries
such as Germany, the U.K., France and Italy dominated demand for
emulsion polymers in recent past. However, Eastern Europe and Russia
markets are expected to grow in next few years. Due to rise in
industrialization Middle East and Africa regions are projected as one of
the most lucrative emulsion polymer markets in near future.
