The global market for Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) is projected to reach 5.7 Million Metric Tons by 2024, driven by growing demand from end-use sectors including automotive and construction markets, and rising demand in new application markets. Recovery in global GDP is poised to benefit consumption of MMA and its derivatives in architecture and construction, guided by the improving investments in residential and commercial construction projects. Stable automobile production trends worldwide are also expected to help boost global consumption of MMA. Asia-Pacific represents the largest market worldwide. The region also represents the fastest growing market worldwide, with a CAGR of 5.6% through the analysis period. Increasing shift towards Asia in downstream sectors due to low cost labor and growing demand for products in these markets makes the region a major consumer of MMA worldwide. Rapid growth in residential and commercial construction, automotive production, and original equipment manufacturing is fueling demand for the organic compound in the region. With economic growth in some of the regional markets slated to outrun leading countries in the West, demand for MMA is expected to be progress steadily in Asia-Pacific. Acrylic plastics & resins, the largest and the fastest growing application of MMA, are used across a broad spectrum of applications ranging from paints and coatings to automotive and construction.
