This invaluable information could aid decision-makers in formulating strategic plans and addressing key areas of focus. This detailed report should be a critical resource for any business executive steering the strategic direction of their company in the acrylonitrile industry.

The global Acrylonitrile market has reached approximately 6.5 million tonnes in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.77% during the forecast period until 2035.

Acrylonitrile is an organic compound with the chemical formula CH2CHCN. It is a substance that occasionally becomes yellow because of impurities. It is produced using the ammoxidation process, in which high-temperature reaction takes place between propylene, ammonia, and air in the presence of a catalyst. Acrylonitrile works as a crucial monomer in the synthesis of polymers including ABS, SAN, ASA, and acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber. Because of the strong demand for these polymers from the construction and automotive industries as well as their durability, thermal stability, chemical resistance, and high-strength features, the acrylonitrile market has been expanding.

The primary driver of the Acrylonitrile global market is driven by the production of Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is extensively utilised in the electronics and automotive industries thanks to its exceptional qualities, including strength and endurance at low temperatures.The market for consumer appliances is seeing an increase in the use of ABS resins. Several end-user industries, including oil and gas, food, aircraft, defense, and aerospace, use ABS. The growing use of acrylic fibres is driving up the demand for acrylonitrile. Because they are lightweight, these fibres are great choices for clothing. It serves as the primary raw ingredient for the production of acrylic fibres. The textile and apparel industries employ acrylic fibre because of its lightweight characteristics. Owing to these factors, the Acrylonitrile market is expected to reach 11 million tonnes in 2035.

Regionally, the Asia Pacific region is dominating the Acrylonitrile market, followed by Europe. This region held a market share of approximately 66% in 2022. Growing economies coupled with the rapidly growing population in developing countries like India, Japan, Malaysia, and China are imposing a higher demand for plastics for usage in the construction sector coupled with the growing usage of the acrylic fibre in India’s textile industries, which is anticipated to further propel the Acrylonitrile market furthermore. Given the enormous demand for acrylonitrile in the automotive industry, Europe is predicted to foresee an expansion in demand. Growing automotive industry for producing energy-efficient cars to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Based on production, Asia Pacific is dominating the Acrylonitrile market with China having the highest production capacity.

Based on the end-user industry, the global Acrylonitrile market is segmented into ABS, Acrylic Fibre, Acrylamide, and Others. Among these, the ABS industry is dominating the Acrylonitrile market and consumed roughly 42% of the market in 2022. ABS is quite popular plastic. This is a result of the product's expanding application in the construction sector, consumer products, technology, automobile, and consumer goods. The product is also more durable than PVC, corrosion-resistant, and has great mechanical strength.
