The Global Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Market Has Witnessed Remarkable Growth in the Past and is Estimated to Grow CAGR of 4.23% During the Forecast Period.

H1 2023: During H1 2023, key producers of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) were Formosa Plastics Corporation, Sinopec, and Hanwha Total Petrochemical. However, Sinopec held the largest production capacity of EVA globally in H1 2023. In H1 2023, Celanese Corporation, a global producer of chemicals, announced about successful expansion of its EVA plant at its site at Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The expansion included increasing the EVA production capacity by 35% in Q1 2023. The goal behind the expansion was to increase the production of EVA at the company’s Alberta site to meet the significantly growing demand for EVA for applications in the numerous industries such as packaging and photovoltaic applications. In H1 2023, vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) feedstock prices declined in US due to low acetic acid feedstock costs and stable energy prices across US. Due to a moderate consumption rate in the US market, the production rate remained constant across US. Import from the Asia Pacific region increased and the freight prices fell across the U.S. The winter season led to lethargic consumption of footwear and adhesive by the construction sector with the decline in the construction activities in U.S. In addition, the shipping activity of APAC dwindled due to weak EVA demand from downstream in industries as global inflation and led to the plummeting of the cargo prices. Reduced product procurement led to low demand for EVA, high inventory level, and excess of raw material (VAM) in the US and thus, the prices continue to fall till June 2023.

The global Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) market expanded to reach approximately 3000 thousand tonnes in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.73% during the forecast period until 2035.

Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) is a polymeric resin which is a copolymer of vinyl acetate and ethylene. This resin displays wonderful properties like good flexibility, ability to sustain even at low temperatures such as -70degree Celsius, high durability and resistance to chemicals. These properties are responsible for its applications in various industries like the manufacturing footwear, automobile components, hose, toys, athletic goods, toothbrushes, combs, and flexible packaging films.

The primary driver of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) global market is by the Footwear sector, which is anticipated to rise in response to rising population across the globe.
