However, highly volatile prices of raw material and increasingly stringent environmental regulations are expected to restrain growth of the acrylic acid market. Consequently, manufacturers are expected to shift their focus on development of bio-based acrylic acid, which is expected to open new growth opportunities for acrylic acid market. Supply of propylene (the main feedstock for petroleum-based acrylic acid) is currently very tight. Acrylic acid capacity in the western markets is also constrained as there has not been a single new capacity added in this region during the past few years.
