Polymethyl methacrylate is commonly known as PMMA. It is a synthetic resin manufactured by the polymerization of methyl methacrylate (MMA). It is a clear acrylic material that successfully replaces glass in various products. PMMA is a linear thermoplastic polymer, and thus it possesses high mechanical strength and is also highly scratch-resistant. Raw materials such as methanol, acetone, natural gas, ammonia and sulfuric acid are converted into monomers known as methyl methacrylate, which is further converted to PMMA resins to form molding compounds, extruded sheets and cast sheets.

Owing to its transparency and rigidity, PMMA is commonly used as a shatterproof replacement of glass in laminated signs, aircraft canopies, windows, skylights and other applications.

PMMA is an economical alternative to polycarbonate and does not contain harmful bisphenol-A, an industrial chemical subunit found in polycarbonate materials. PMMA is increasingly used in applications where transparency, tensile strength and UV resistance are more important than impact strength and resistance to heat and chemicals.

Study Goals and Objectives

The goal of this study is to provide readers with an understanding of recent market trends in the overall PMMA market with respect to PMMA’s four forms (i.e., extruded sheets, pellets, cell cast sheet and blocks, and beads) and its different applications in signs and display, construction, automotive, electronics, medical and healthcare, among others.

The key objectives of this report include:

  • Identify the top 10 companies and profile them in detail.
  • Identify PMMA types that have good commercial potential during the forecast period of 2018 to 2023.
  • Analyze key market drivers and constraints that will shape the market in the future, as the basis for projecting demand over the next five years.
  • Estimate current and future market revenue of PMMA through 2023.
  • Identify companies best positioned to meet this demand because of their proprietary technologies, strategic alliances or other advantages.
