Reportlinker.com has released a new report titled “World Emulsion Polymers Market”.
The report presents historical data for polymers in the years 2001, 2006 and 2011 and also offers demand forecasts from the year 2016 to 2021. The past data and forecasts are presented according to market, geographical region and types of polymer. The market data for 15 countries are included. The report profiles 33 competing players across the world operating in the polymer industry. Market share of the companies in the polymer industry are assessed. Environmental factors are taken into consideration in the industry analysis.
The worldwide demand for emulsion polymers is envisaged to grow at the annual rate of 5.1% to reach 13.3 Mmt in the year 2016. The growth of the industry will be driven by the replacement of solvent based formulations with aqua-based coatings, paints and adhesives. Though the emulsion polymer market in developed economies is considered to be mature, growth is expected to resume as a result of expected strengthening of construction sector and the need to comply with rigorous regulations governing the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Emerging economies like India and China are expected to witness growth as a result of robust economic growth and rising demand for water-based formulations. The maximum market gain for emulsion polymers is expected from paints and paper coatings, especially water based formulations. The adhesive market is expected to drive only moderate gains in the emulsion polymer industry. Acrylics are envisaged to be the most popular emulsion polymer type that would make up for almost 40% of the industry market share. Styrene butadiene latex is expected to register slow growth amongst the various polymer types.
