Acrylic acid and its derivatives are widely used in industrial processing. The major markets for acrylic acid and its derivatives include surface coatings, adhesives, plastic additives and co-monomers. Acrylic esters include methyl acrylate, butyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate, 2-ethylhexyl acrylate and others. It is also used to produce polyacrylic acid or cross-linked polyacrylic acid compounds, which are used in the manufacture of super absorbent polymers. These polymers have wide range of applications in hygienic products, detergents, and waste water treatment chemicals.
Stringent government regulations pertaining to the environmental safety & human health and volatile prices of the raw materials are restricting the growth of the market globally. Lack of sufficient supply of propylene (the main feedstock for petroleum-based acrylic acid) is a major constrain in the market. Also, there has not been a single no new capacity added in this region during the past few years.
