Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Consumption Analysis (2017-2021) Vs. Market Forecast Outlook (2022-2032)

Utilization of ethylene vinyl acetate experienced a growth rate of 2% over the past half-decade.

The ethylene vinyl market has seen steady growth over the past few years due to demand from end-use industries such as pharmaceuticals and packaging. Manufacturers have increased their production capacity to cater to the demand growth.

In the packaging industry, ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) is used as a sustainable packaging material for consumer goods, since it does not contain chlorine in its manufacturing solution. The global packaging industry has witnessed 2.8% cumulative growth over the past 2 years, and this trend is poised to surge product penetration 2.5X in the packaging industry by 2032.

In addition, growing demand for low-density ethylene vinyl acetate in end-use industries is likely to open new doors for manufacturers during the assessment period.

Fact.MR’s chemical & materials team has tracked various parameters of the market, which summarizes the growth trajectory, including end-use preference, production expansion, demand outlook, and growth trends. After analyzing these important factors, the global EVA market is estimated to be valued at around US$ 8.99 billion in 2022, and is presumed to expand at a CAGR of 2.4% through 2032.

Which Factors are Responsible for Increasing EVA Demand?

“High EVA Usage in Packaging Applications”

Ethylene vinyl acetate does not utilize chlorine in its manufacturing process, and due to this, it is considered a prominent material for packaging applications. Moreover, application of EVA provides flexible, durable, cost-effective, and sustainable packaging solutions.

EVA demand is poised to benefit from an increase in demand for elastomer polymers during the forecast period. Swelling application of elastomer polymers in footwear, packaging, pharmaceuticals, and agriculture will supplement demand for ethylene vinyl acetate over the coming years.

“EVA Being Used for Cell Encapsulation in Solar Panels”

Growing popularity of solar panels and shifting consumer preference towards renewable energy sources will boost demand for solar panels, in turn, driving demand for ethylene vinyl acetate since it is extensively utilized for cell encapsulation in solar panels.

Furthermore, increased public awareness of energy saving, self-sufficiency, and favorable government laws are expected to drive EVA consumption in alternative end-use applications over the coming years.

“Rising EVA Application in Advanced Medical Devices”

According to the study done by Fact.MR, requirements of end-use industries are highly specific and need to be catered to function properly. Customers require a particular type of EVA and other specs for their end-use applications.

Ethylene vinyl acetate has witnessed abundant application in medical packaging, pharmaceutical, and medical devices over the past three decades. Emerging application for manufacturing cryogenic storage bags is likely to provide a noteworthy demand outlook from the healthcare sector.

In addition, the simple molecular structure of ethylene vinyl acetate is anticipated to enable innovative solutions to some of healthcare’s unaddressed challenges over the coming years.
