Acrolein prices are dependent on its raw materials, propylene and glycerine. The global market had changed due to increased demand for acrolein, which was based on raw material availability and its diverse applications in numerous sectors around the world. Rapid rise in the plastic and polymer industries, followed by increased demand in agrochemicals, were some other important causes that boosted acrolein demand. Acrolein also was widely used in chemical plants as a critical step in the production of acrylic acid and methionine. Acrylic acid polymers were used to make emulsifiers, coatings, and adhesives in enormous quantities. The market's wide range of applications was a major driver of revenue growth.

Production Processes:

  • Production of Acrolein via Oxidation of Propene; from Acrolein; via Decomposition of Glycerol; and via Condensation of Formaldehyde and Acetaldehyde

In this process, production of  Acrolein from propene takes place with the help of oxidation. Propene is oxidised in the presence of air and the reaction requires metal oxides as the heterogeneous catalysts, which produces Acrolein as the final result.
