DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AcrylonitrileThe "Global Acrylonitrile Market - Segmented by End-user Industry and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The acrylonitrile market is expected to register a moderate growth rate during 2018-2023.
Acrylonitrile is a commodity petrochemical that is derived from propylene. It is manufactured by the ammoxidation of propylene. Acrylonitrile finds application in polyacrylonitrile for acrylic fibers in ABS and SAN resin manufacture as a modifying monomer, moreover, as a chemical intermediate in the manufacture of adiponitrile and acrylamide.
Acrylonitrile offers excellent durability, strength, and heat resistance properties, owing to which it is used in several end-user industries, such as automotive, construction, plastics, pharmaceuticals, and consumer goods. Additionally, it is also used in the production of homopolymers and other various copolymers, such as styrene acrylonitrile, acrylonitrile styrene acrylate, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene and synthetic rubbers, polyacrylonitrile, acrylamide, and acrylic acid.
Asia-Pacific holds the major share of the consumption pattern of ACN. Europe and North America are expected to witness moderate growth rates. Moreover, Asia-Pacific accounts for over half of the global production capacity, whereas countries, like China and the United States, have the highest installed capacities.
