Based on application the global Acrylic Acid market Report is divided into SAP, Acrylate Esters, and Others.

North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa are the key regions studied in the market.

Asia Pacific and China Regions are Driving the Growth of the Market

The global Acrylic Acid market in Asia Pacific region (58.2%) and China (34.5%) are dominating the market. The demand from China, owing to the acrylic acid uses in industries such as automobile and construction, is driving the market growth.

Super absorbent polymers (SAP) are the leading demand-inducing segment. Furthermore, the growing demand from the paint and coating sector is furthering the market potential, impacting the acrylic acid market prices.

However, the supply of acrylic acid is tight planned and unplanned maintenance turnarounds. The upcoming inflation, the rising cost of raw materials, etc., hamper the global Acrylic Acid market demand.

Category Management Studies

The most widely employed method to make acrylic acid is through the oxidation of propylene. The production of acrylic acid by using the vapour phase oxidation of propylene is the standard process. The process consists of two reactors in series employing two different catalysts. The first reactor makes acrolein from propylene, during which the conversion of acrolein to acrylic acid takes place in the second reactor.

Chemical-grade propylene (C.G.) is mixed with air and steam before entering a two-step oxidation reaction system. The following processes take place in fixed-bed tubular reactors. By using exothermic activities, heat is generated, which is later utilised to make steam. The liquid waste from the reaction system is transported to a quench tower, where the acrylic acid created is immersed in water. The leftover gas accumulated at the top of the quench tower is partially burnt before being reintroduced to the first-step reactor. For product retrieval, the aqueous solution is delivered to downstream units.

The Employment of the Product in Various Industries is Further Driving the Procurement of Acrylic Acid

Acrylic acid is primarily used to make polymers. It is employed to make coatings, paints, plastics, polishes, adhesives, and elastomers. It is also added to the production of detergents, medical products, and wastewater treatment chemicals. It is used to make plastics for applications including polymer solutions, floor polish, coatings, emulsion polymers, chemical intermediate etc. All the mentioned applications are driving the global Acrylic Acid market Growth.

North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa are the key regions covered in the global Acrylic Acid market Research.
