Why is Vinyl Acetate Monomer Usage Expected to Increase across Regions?
“Growing Demand from Construction & Packaging Sectors”
The properties of vinyl acetate monomers, such as adhesive strength, have been gaining popularity in the construction industry over the years. The growth of the global construction industry at a CAGR of more than 10% has increased the demand for adhesives, which is likely to boost the vinyl acetate monomers market.
Furthermore, developed and developing countries have also increased their spending on construction and infrastructure. Countries such as China, India, and Brazil are spending more than 5% of their total income on infrastructure.
Polyvinyl alcohol is effective in film foaming & emulsifying and has high adhesive quality, which makes it useful in the packaging industry. Growing demand for packaging solutions from several industries along with surging e-Commerce shopping has created a positive environment for the growth of the vinyl acetate monomers market.
Along with the construction and packaging industry, vinyl acetate monomers are widely used in the cosmetics and textiles sectors as well. Polyvinyl alcohol is water-soluble and is used in water-based cosmetics and personal care products.
Vinyl acetate monomers are key ingredients used in the manufacturing of intermediates, resins, and emulsion polymers that are widely used in paints & coatings. Rising demand for paints & coating across the world will create lucrative opportunities for vinyl acetate monomers manufacturers over the coming years.
“Polyvinyl Acetate to Open Doors for Vinyl Acetate Monomer Manufacturers”
Vinyl acetate monomers are widely used in the manufacturing of polyvinyl acetate resins. Polyvinyl acetate resins are used as a base material for the production of adhesives and coatings. Polyvinyl acetate resins are low in cost and convenient to use in several applications. They are used as base components for household white glues, which are used for bonding paper, fabric, wood, plastic, etc.
Polyvinyl acetate has properties such as high chemical and thermal stability, and low manufacturing cost, which makes it suitable for use in many industries such as food packaging, paper, and textiles. Polyvinyl alcohol has some properties such as chemical resistance, water solubility, and biodegradability. It is used as a sizing agent, which helps give strength to textile yarn and makes paper more resistant.

What Do Vinyl Acetate Monomers Producers Need to Be Aware Of?
“Susceptibility to Dynamic Instability of Market Under Changing Geopolitical Conditions”
In recent years, market leaders such as LyondellBasell industries and Celanese Corporation have increased their production capacities at different plants to meet the growing demand for vinyl acetate monomers. These companies face challenges with the fluctuating prices of raw materials used in the manufacturing of vinyl acetate monomers.
Unstable prices of raw materials such as ethylene, methanol, carbon monoxide, and natural gas can hamper overall market progress. A significant increase in the cost of essential raw materials can have an adverse impact on a company’s product margin and profitability.
The prices of raw materials fluctuate due to several reasons such as weather impact, labor issues, changes in country policies, and decreasing economy.
Will the U.S. Exhibit High Demand for Vinyl Acetate Monomers?
The United States holds 86.7% share in the North American vinyl acetate monomers market and is set to rise at the rate of 4.2% across the forecast years.
- The United States' total spending on construction and infrastructure was more than US$ 100 billion in 2022. In 2019, the United States construction industry was worth US$ 1.4 trillion.
Vinyl acetate monomers have adhesive properties, which is generating high demand from the construction industry. The construction industry in the United States is growing at more than 4% CAGR. Increasing demand for adhesives from the construction industry is likely to boost the vinyl acetate monomers market in the country.
Packaging is another industry where vinyl acetate monomers are widely used.
- The packaging industry in the United States is valued at over US$ 200 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of nearly 3%.
In recent years, consumers have preferred online shopping in the United States. e-Commerce companies such as Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Etsy, and Home Depot are the largest contributors to the packaging industry. The e-Commerce sector has created high demand for packaging applications, which will drive the demand for vinyl acetate monomers in the United States.
Why are Vinyl Acetate Monomer Suppliers Eyeing China?
The construction industry in China is growing at a rapid pace. China has become the largest construction market. In 2021, China’s construction market was valued at over US$ 1,100 billion.
Polyvinyl alcohol is a nonionic water-soluble polymer that is very well-suited for water-based cosmetics and personal care products. The use of polyvinyl acetate or polyvinyl alcohol in the cosmetics industry is likely to boost the demand for vinyl acetate monomers in China. With the growing economy and increased personal care spending, the use of cosmetics in China is growing rapidly.
Over the decade, the packaging industry has grown at a healthy CAGR across the world. The advanced packaging industry has achieved a global turnover of over US$ 30 billion in 2022.
