Ethyl Acrylate Market Outlook (2022- 2032)

The present market shares of ethyl acrylate account for USD 8.63 Billion. The market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 6.2% for the forecast duration. The Ethyl Acrylate market is expected to reach USD 16.73 Billion by the end of 2032.

Ethyl acrylate has been long famed for its use in manufacturing acrylic fibres. Moreover, the high solubility of ethyl acrylate in alcohols, ethers, and other common organic solvents is boosting its popularity by a considerable margin. The use of ethyl acrylate in emulsion-based polymers is one of the predominant reasons pushing the demand for ethyl acrylate.

The demand for ethyl acrylate is increasing across a wide range of end-use industries, including leather, paints, plastics, paper, packaging, and textiles, which is adding to its overall demand trajectory. The use of ethyl acrylate in the form of a coating in case of household items, ranging from magazines to envelop adhesives, is also triggering its adoption rate.

Ethyl acrylate is the ethyl ester of the parent acrylic acid. Ethyl acrylate finds wide applications in the homo-polymers and chemicals industry. Ethyl acrylate exhibits good water and sunlight resistance coupled with excellent weathering and low-temperature flexibility.

Being too volatile, ethyl acrylate reacts easily with many organic and inorganic compounds. Ethyl acrylate is colourless and is not soluble in water. However, it is readily soluble in organic solvents such as alcohol.

Drivers of Demand: Ethyl Acrylate Market

Considering its wide applications in the paints and coatings segment, the ethyl acrylate market is largely dependent on the growth of the construction and infrastructure sector. Ethyl acrylate is in stable demand from the pharmaceutical sector due to its use as a reagent in various pharmaceutical intermediates. The feasible properties and high demand from the end-user industries are the key factors in the growth of the global market of ethyl acrylate.

Acrylic acid is a vital raw material in the production of ethyl acrylate, and propylene is widely used for the commercial manufacture of acrylic acid. Any advancement in the global price of propylene adversely affects the cost of acrylic acid and its derivatives, particularly ethyl acrylate. Also, since ethyl acrylate is highly toxic, several environmental regulations limit its growth.

Health and safety organizations such as the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services, OSHA, NIOSH and ACGIH have termed ethyl acrylate as a “Carcinogen with extreme caution” and advised to reduce its human exposure to the lowest level possible. Economical and safety concerns tend to overshadow the numerous advantages of ethyl acrylate.

Deterring factors: Ethyl Acrylate Market

Excess exposure to ethyl acrylate may cause drowsiness, headache, and nausea. Along with being highly toxic, ethyl acrylate causes irritation to the skin, eyes, and respiratory tracks. Ethyl acrylate is a carcinogen and might prove to be fatal under prolonged exposure. Being too volatile, ethyl acrylate reacts easily with many organic and inorganic compounds. Ethyl acrylate is colourless and has low solubility in water. However, it is readily soluble in organic solvents such as alcohol.

The adoption of ethyl acrylate has borne the brunt of controversies regarding health issues associated with its exposure, including headache, convulsions, drowsiness, lethargy, and gastrointestinal, and respiratory irritation. The risk of cancer is associated with exposure of workers to ethyl acrylate among workers who are occupationally prone to the chemicals. But, with studies evolving with respect to the essentiality of ethyl acrylate and with some positive effects it induces in the target applications, the adoption rate of ethyl acrylate is increasing, yet at a steady rate.
