Methyl Acrylate Production Cost Analysis 2020

Methyl acrylate is an organic compound and is known more precisely as the methyl ester of acrylic acid. This chemical compound does not have a colour, but it comes with a characteristic acrid odour. It is mainly manufactured to make acrylate fibre that is used to weave synthetic carpets. It is also known to be a reagent in the synthesis of various pharmaceutical intermediates.

The standard industrial reaction for manufacturing methyl acrylate is esterification with methanol under acid catalysis like that with sulphuric acid, p-toluene sulphonic acid, and acidic ion exchangers. Methyl acrylate is widely known as the third most important acrylic ester with a worldwide annual production of about 200 thousand tons per year. 

Methyl acrylate is also used for the preparation of 2-dimethylaminoethyl acrylate by transesterification with dimethylaminoethanol. It is found in significant quantities of over 50K tons/year. It is also used as a comonomer in the polymerization with a variety of acrylic and vinyl monomers.
