Polymer Emulsion Market by Type (Acrylics, Polyurethane Dispersions, SB Latex, Vinyl acetate Polymer and Others), by Application (Adhesives & Sealants, Paints & Coatings, Paper & Paperboard, and Others) - Trends & Forecasts to 2020

Monomers dissolved in water are known as polymer emulsion. Due to its water content, polymer emulsions are known as waterborne polymers. It is a substitute for solvent-borne polymers. In comparison with solvent-borne polymers, emulsion polymers are environmental friendly as they have low VOC and VAC contents. Polymer emulsions have superior usability and safety standards. Polymer emulsions also have a better recyclability and lifespan when compared to solvent-borne polymers. The major drawback for global polymer emulsion market is its volatile raw material prices.

Asia-Pacific is the largest market for polymer emulsion, globally. There has been rapid increase in construction & building, transportation and consumer durables industries in Asia Pacific. This has brought about significant changes in the polymer emulsion market in the recent past. Moreover, the current developments in the aforesaid industry in countries like India, Vietnam, and South Korea are contributing to the rapid growth in the polymer emulsion market. In RoW, Brazil, African countries, and Middle East are among the fastest growing nations, in polymer emulsion market. The rising middle class population is driving the demand for polymer emulsion is these countries, as they are raising their standard of living. The availability of feedstock and energy are conducive for growth of polymer emulsion market in the Middle East. The demand for polymer emulsion in North African countries has driven demand for emulsion paints that in turn will be driven by the consumption towards infrastructure developments.

Polyurethane dispersion is the fastest growing type of the polymer emulsion market as it conforms to several environmental regulations of low VOC and VAC content. Adhesives and sealants are the second leading application in 2014.. Adhesives and sealants adhere to the surface applied and thus become rigid, which is essential for strong adhesion. They are also very stable under stress and weathering for significant period of time.

This study estimates the market size, in terms of value and volume, for polymer emulsion market and projects the same by 2020. As a part of the quantitative analysis, the study segments the market by type, application, and region and projects the market size till 2020. The countries covered in the report are China, South Korea, Brazil, Germany, U.K., France, Brazil and the U.S. The segmentation by types includes acrylics, vinyl acetate polymer, SB latex,, polyurethane dispersion, and others. The segmentation by applications includes paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, paper & paperboard, and others. Further, as a part of the qualitative analysis, the research provides a comprehensive review of important market drivers, restraints, opportunities, challenges, and key issues in the market. It also includes company profiling and competitive strategies adopted by different market players, including BASF SE (Germany), Momentive Performance Materials Holdings LLC (U.S.), Arkema SA (France), AkzoNobel N.V. (The Netherlands), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), and Wacker Chemie AG (U.S.)
