The Poly Methyl Methacrylate market by end-use applications is projected to surge to exhibit a compounded annual growth rate of 4.4% over the period 2012-2017. "Poly Methyl Methacrylate (PMMA), having a chemical formula (C5O2H8)n, is a thermoplastic, transparent, and versatile synthetic resin that is produced by polymerizing methyl methacrylate. The material is one of the most preferred types of acrylate polymers in applications where the material's strength and manageability are critical. PMMA is extensively used as a substitute for shatterproof glass because of its superior clarity, impact and scratch resistance, and the capability of retaining its properties even on exposure to outdoor weather and UV radiation for many years."
