The global market for Acrylic Resins is projected to reach 23.2 billion pounds by 2022, driven by the industrial and commercial importance of thermosetting polymers in a wide range of applications covering synthetic rubbers, textiles, paints, adhesives, plastics and strippable varnishes, among numerous others. The growth in the market is poised to benefit from high production standards in virtually every manufacturing sub-sector i.e. need for high quality molding in lightweight plastics production; need for more compatible and lighter resin based materials in prosthetic dentistry; need for high strength, quick drying adhesives; need for glossy, clear coat automotive paints; need for stronger construction materials such as acrylic glass; and growing use of synthetic polymers in textile processing for developing higher grade, higher performance textile products. Asia-Pacific represents the largest market worldwide supported by stable growth in well-established end-use markets. China ranks as the largest market in the region, led by rapid industrialization and massive manufacturing prowess built over a period of two decades. Future growth in the market will be powered by the Middle East and Africa with a combined CAGR of 6% over the analysis period.
