The global butyl acrylate market is expected to touch US$ 8.1 bn in evaluation by 2026 end. It is expected to grow at a healthy 5.0% CAGR during 2018 and 2026. The high purity segment in the global butyl acrylate market is expected to register significant growth along with paints and coatings. Paints and coatings as application dominated the market at the beginning of the forecast period and are expected to grow at a rapid pace. The increased demand for coatings and paints in Asia Pacific, due to rising construction activity are expected to drive demand.

Rising Demand for Automotive A Boon for the Butyl Acrylate Market  

Vehicle sales are rising in emerging economies. The region is witnessing a major influx of first-time buyers and a significant number of luxury buyers as well. This is expected to emerge as a major opportunity for players in the butyl acrylate market. Butyl acrylate is widely used as a raw material for manufacturing engineered automotive products. Products such as acrylic elastomers are rising in demand in the auto industry due for parts such as seals, hoses, dampers, and gaskets. These are much more cost-effective as compared to the alternatives manufactured using fluorocarbon polymers. Additionally, they are ideal for catering to automotive industry’s demand for withstanding high temperature and hydrocarbon oils. Acrylics are also prominent in automotive coatings and printing inks, which require rapid drying mechanisms. Hence, they are used as lacquers and coatings.

On the other hand, several products from the butyl acrylate market require safe handling precautions due to their flammable nature. These are also under increased scrutiny due to environmental regulations.

High Purity Chemicals to Propel the Butyl Acrylate Market

The butyl acrylate market is divided into high purity chemical and common purity chemical. The butyl acrylate chemicals offers various key characteristics for end-users, which makes it popular for adhesive materials and water-based coatings.
