The analysts forecast the Global Polyacrylic Acid Market to grow at a CAGR of 4.54% during the period 2018-2022.
Polyacrylic acid also known as carbomer, is a synthetic high molecular weight polymer of acrylic acid, and its degree of ionization depends on the pH of the solution. Polyacrylic acid is extensively used in paints and coatings, detergents and cleaners, and in personal care due to its high bonding and adhesive characteristics.
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the polyacrylic acid market. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of polyacrylic acid.
One trend affecting this market is the increasing demand for super-absorbent polymers SAPs provide opportunities for the growth of the global polyacrylic acid market, this trend is expected to continue over the forecast period. Polyacrylic acid and sodium hydroxide are the key raw materials used to produce SAPs.
One driver influencing this market is the superior properties of polyacrylic acid. Polyacrylic acid exhibits excellent properties due to which it is extensively used in application such as wastewater treatment, detergents and cleaners, paints and coatings, and SAPs. Dry polyacrylic acid is soluble in aqueous solutions and is used in disposable diapers primarily due to its excellent absorption ability.
The report states that one challenge affecting this market is the availability of substitutes. Polyacrylic acid is primarily used for wastewater treatment due to its complete solubility in water. The availability of inorganic chemical substitutes for wastewater treatment and water purification process such as polyaluminum chloride and alum pose tough competition to polyacrylic acid, this hinders the growth of the global polyacrylic acid market.
