The Polycarboxylic Based Polymers Market size is forecast to reach US$2,745.1 million by 2027, after growing at a CAGR of 3.1% during 2022-2027. Polycarboxylic is a chemical compound that originated from carboxylic acids and this polymer is used in applications such as construction, water treatments, oilfields and refineries, manufacturing, and HVAC systems. The major type of polycarboxylic polymers is poly acrylics, polysaccharides and polycarboxylate superplasticizer. The water-soluble polymers that are derived from polycarboxylic acids have seen major applications in water treatment. The derivatives of polycarboxylic acids are polycarboxylates, phosphonates, polyphosphates, metal salts, and sulfonates. The polymers from carboxylic acids are readily prepared by copolymerization of carboxylic monomers with other comonomers by a free radical polymerization system. Hydrophilic polymers, also derived from carboxylic acids are prepared by copolymerization of acrylics with acrylates through threw distillation process. Europe dominates the market due to its rapid growth in the construction sector.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an immediate impact on the world economy and that impact goes across all industries, including the Polycarboxylic Based Polymers industry. Due to the lockdown situation, the global manufacturers had to bar-down their production units as a consequence of the labor shortage. Moreover, several personal care and household product stores were also shut down due to tighter border controls, unavailability of raw materials, and constraints in the supply and demand process.

Polycarboxylic Based Polymers Based Polymers Market Segment Analysis - By Type

The Polycarboxylate Superplasticizer segment accounted for approximately 31% of the market share in 2020 and is estimated to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. Polycarboxylate superplasticizer is the third-generation concrete superplasticizer, which possesses exceptional characteristics like outstanding water-reducing rate, high strength, and low viscosity, environmental friendly, and others. It has acquired increasing significance in various fields of commercial concrete and pre-cast concrete units. The polycarboxylate superplasticizer market is mainly growing by the rising demand for commercial concrete.

Polycarboxylic Based Polymers Market Segment Analysis - By Application

The Household Products segment accounted for approximately 22% of the market share in 2020 and is estimated to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. Polycarboxylic-based polymers are generally the most common components of the consumer as well as institutional cleaning products for years now. They function as deposition agents, stopping soil from resettling on fabric after removing during laundering, and as builders. The cleaning products that usually include polycarboxylic-based polymers are fabric care products such as laundry detergents and boosters, laundry pretreatments, and liquid bleaches. Moreover, polycarboxylic-based polymers are commonly found in automatic dishwashing detergents and primarily help with soil suspension and improve the resistance of anionic surfactants against precipitation induced by water hardness. Owing to the properties the demand for polycarboxylic-based polymers is growing rapidly in household products.

Polycarboxylic Based Polymers Market Segment Analysis - By End-Use Industry

The personal Care segment is expected to grow at 3.9% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Cosmetic ingredients such as poly acrylic and copolymers assist to produce many formulas with diverse visual and sensory effects like mattifying, ball-bearing, soft velvet feelings, and others. It consists of a film-forming agent which allows continuous film on the skin, hair or nails. Their characteristics allow usage in quite a lot of applications including nail polish, mascaras, eyeliner, lipsticks, sunscreens, and any skincare products like lotions, creams, and others. With the rising personal care industry, the demands for polycarboxylic based polymers will certainly gain traction, for instance, for instance, India's e-commerce orders volume increased by 36% in the last quarter of 2020, with the personal care, beauty, and wellness (PCB&W) segment being the largest beneficiary. Besides, In March 2021, Purplle, an online beauty store, raised US$45 million from Sequoia Capital India, Verlinvest, Blume Ventures and JSW Ventures. On the other hand, in 2019, the beauty industry in China is recognized as the largest globally, at US$38.8 billion in retail sales, as disclosed by Central Information Commission (CIC) Report.

Polycarboxylic Based Polymers Market Segment Analysis - By Geography

The Europe region held the largest share in the Polycarboxylic Based Polymers in 2020 up to 32% followed by North America and the Asia Pacific. With the risen life expectancy in the European Region in the last few decades leads to the rapid growth in the personal care, household products and building and construction. Additionally, the growing demand for the cement industry in confluence with various product development, is propelling the market growth. Nuclear waste producers in the UK use superplasticizers for the packaging of low heat generating wastes due to the operational advantages of reduced water content and increased fluidity of cementitious mixtures. Construction project in Europe, for instance, UK’s first new nuclear power station Hinkley Point C and Sognefjord floating tunnel in Norway, are likely to drive the market growth of polycarboxylic based polymers in the forecast period.

Polycarboxylic Based Polymers Market- Drivers

Rapid demands from the Cement Industry

Polycarboxylate superplasticizer provides high-performance as a water reducing agent. It is a cement dispersant utilized in cement concrete applications. Polycarboxylate concrete superplasticizer is broadly used in high-rise buildings, bridges, roads, dams, tunnels, and other projects. The demands from cement industries are rising owing to its advantages like it accelerates the initial strength development of concrete and with the use of polycarboxylate superplasticizers, more slag can be used instead of cement to reduce costs. With the increasing development in the cement industry, the demand for polycarboxylate superplasticizers will increase which will directly impact the Polycarboxylic Based Polymers Market. For instance, in India according to the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), cement and gypsum products attracted Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) worth US$ 5.28 billion between April 2000 and September 2020.

Polycarboxylic Based Polymers Market- Challenges

Environment challenges might hinder the market

The main pathway of polycarboxylic-based polymers into the environment is through domestic wastewater and sewage treatment to any surface waters. Therefore, the elimination of polycarboxylic-based polymers from wastewater before and all through wastewater treatment where biodegradation, sorption, and precipitation take place is the crucial factor that governs the distribution of polycarboxylic based polymers into the potential environment release. Besides, plasticizers are widely used globally due to their easy availability at a low cost. The number of companies is voluntarily shifting away from plasticizers as a rising number of analyses are baring the health effects caused due to the use of plasticizers. The increasing environmental effect might hamper the growth of polycarboxylic-based polymers.
