Acrylic acid is a clear, colorless liquid with a characteristic pungent odor. It is miscible with water, alcohols, ethers, and chloroform. Acrylic acid is also referred as prop-2-enoic acid is an organic compound with the formula CH2=CHCO2H. Acrylic acid is primarily used as raw material for production of coatings, acrylic resins, acrylates, adhesives, elastomer, and super absorbent polymers. Acrylates are mainly employed into the manufacturing of co-polymers or homo polymer such as methyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate, butyl acrylate, 2-ethyl-hexyl acrylate, etc. Acrylic acid on reacting with its own esters produces poly acrylic acid and monomers such as acrylamides, acrylonitrile, vinyl, styrene, and butadiene. Moreover, Acrylic acid is used in the manufacture of plastics, latex applications, floor polish, emulsion polymers, paper coatings, and paint formulations.

The global acrylic acid market has observed robust growth in the recent years owing to increasing demand from super absorbent polymers (SUP) and adhesives industry. Increasing demand from super absorbent polymers in emerging economies such as China, India, etc. has remained the key growth driver for this industry. Moreover, high shear and tensile strength are resulted into growing demand for acrylic acid in high performance applications. Rise in building and construction activities in emerging economies is expected to boost the demand for the acrylic acid during the forecast period. However, stringent environmental regulations and unstable prices of raw material are expected to hamper the growth of this industry to some extent.

Acrylate esters, glacial acrylic acid and others are the major product segments of acrylic acid. Methyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate, butyl acrylate and 2-ethylhexyl acrylate are the major sub-segments of acrylate esters. Superabsorbent polymers (SAP) and poly acrylic acid market are the sub-segments of glacial acrylic acid. Acrylate esters are most commonly used in surface coatings followed by adhesives and sealants, textiles, plastic additives and Printing ink. Acrylate esters accounted for over 50% share of the total acrylic acid volume consumed in 2014. However, acrylate esters are expected to lose their market share to glacial acrylic acid and other derivatives during the next five years. In 2014, glacial acrylic acid was the second largest market segment in acrylic acid. It is mainly used in the manufacture of superabsorbent polymers. It is used in manufacturing baby diapers, feminine hygiene products and adult diapers feminine hygiene. Poly acrylic acid market is also an important application segments for glacial acrylic acid, and is mainly used in water treatment.
