Article Title: Demand for Emulsion Polymers to Exceed 13 Million Metric Tons in 2016

Freedonia Study: World Emulsion Polymers (2929)

Quote from article
Water-based paints, paper and paperboard coatings, and general-purpose adhesives accounted for over three-quarters of global demand in 2011. The most rapid gains through 2016 will be for emulsion polymers in coatings, where water-based formulations are steadily increasing their share of the market. Even in industrialized regions such as North America and Western Europe, where water-based paints are dominant in the architectural sector, there remain ample opportunities for emulsion polymers in the industrial and specialty coatings markets. More moderate gains in demand are expected in the adhesives market, where emulsion polymers are facing competition from other low-VOC technologies such as hot melts. Below-average advances in emulsion polymer demand are forecast for the highly mature and slow-growing paper and paperboard coatings market.

Freedonia Study: World Emulsion Polymers (2929)

Quote from article
Acrylics will remain the largest and fastest growing emulsion polymer product type through 2016, when they will account for nearly 40 percent of the world market, Freedonia said. Freedonia said the Asia/Pacific region, driven by strong gains during the 2001-2011 period, has overtaken North America and Western Europe to become the leading regional market for emulsion polymers. The region will continue to see above average gains in demand through 2016, fueled by strong growth in India and China, the study said.

Driven by strong gains, the Asia-Pacific region has overtaken North America and Western Europe to become the leading regional market for emulsion polymers. The Asia-Pacific region will continue to see above-average gains in demand through 2016, fueled by strong growth in India and China. While demand in North America and Western Europe will rise at a subpar pace, advances will represent a notable rebound from earlier declining demand. Best opportunities are expected in the Africa/Mideast region, said the study.
