Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) Production Cost Report

Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) is a rigid and transparent thermoplastic that is mainly used in car windows, smartphone screens, to aquariums. It is a great shatterproof glass replacement. Furthermore, it is employed owing to it being tough, inexpensive, and easy to shape, which makes it a great choice for manufacturers. In the construction and design sector, it is employed for making doors, windows, panels, canopies etc. It is also used in the automobile industry for making various parts like car windows to windshields.

PMMA polymer is termed bone cement in the healthcare industry. Thus, it is used for the fabrication of artificial teeth, denture bases, temporary or provisional crowns, prosthetic dental applications, and other medical procedures by orthopedic surgeons. The commodity finds use in many beauty products, like acne treatments, facial lines, wrinkles, and scars on the skin. etc. are some other applications propelling the market's expansion, including PMMA usage in LED lights and lamps, in electronic equipment, such as TV screens, smartphones and laptops, and solar devices, as well as for making paint, furniture, and optical fibers used for telecommunication.

The market for Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) is majorly driven by its use in biomaterial applications such as lenses, bone substitutes, and drug delivery systems, which increases its demand in the medical devices and pharmaceutical industries. It is also known as bone cement and is extensively utilized for the fabrication of artificial teeth, denture bases, prosthetic dental applications, etc., which enhances its demand in the medical and healthcare industries. Moreover, it is employed in the manufacture of motorcycle & aircraft windshields, fenders, car windows, interior and exterior panels, and windows of a ship, which further boosts its demand in the automotive, aerospace, transportation, and marine & shipbuilding industries.

It also has a wide range of applications in the electronics industry, which propels its market growth. Additionally, several factors influence an industrial Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) procurement, such as the availability and cost of production of Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA)’s feedstock (propylene, benzene, and acetone), Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) market prices, distribution (including trading and shipping), logistics, environmental regulations, safety standards, etc.

Raw Material for Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) Production

According to the Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) manufacturing plant project report, the major raw materials for Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) production include Propylene-Benzene-Acetone.

Manufacturing Process of Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA)

The extensive Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) production cost report consists of the following industrial manufacturing process:

  • Production via Propylene: The process begins with the chemical reaction of propylene with benzene to produce cumene. Then, cumene is oxidized and is further reacted with acetone to form methyl methacrylate, followed by polymerization resulting in the formation of polymethyl methacrylate.

Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) or widely known as acrylic, is a transparent material made from the monomer methyl methacrylate. PMMA is a transparent and rigid thermoplastic that is resistant to UV light and weathering and has a great light transmission and boundless colouring options. It is a tough plastic which is easily shaped and is a great substitute for expensive and less resilient glass. It is a cheaper substitute for polycarbonate if the application requires tensile strength, flexural strength, and transparency. The clear, colourless polymer is available in various forms like pellet, small granules, and sheet forms. It displays glass-like features, including clarity, brilliance, transparency, and translucence.
