PMMA Market: Glass Based Applications to Witness Increased Demand


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/20/2019 -- PMMA is also known as polymethyl methacrylate. The material is a synthetic resin, which is manufactured through a polymerization process of methyl methacrylate. PMMA is a clear acrylic, which finds extensive use as a substitute for glass in a wide range of end use industries.

PMMA is known as a linear type of thermoplastic polymer, and the material is characterized by superior resistance to scratches and abrasion, in addition to high levels of mechanical strength. The production of polymethyl methacrylate includes sulfuric acid, methanol, ammonia, acetone, and natural gas. These materials are converted to methyl methacrylate monomers, which is again converted to PMMA resins.

A study of the global PMMA industry is collated and published in the report titled, "PMMA: Market Overview and Top Ten Companies" that has been added to the extensive research repository of Market Research Hub (MRH).

PMMA is available in 3 key forms, which are cast sheets, molding compounds, and extruded sheets. PMMA is used extensively as a shatterproof substitute of glass in a variety of end use products such as skylights, laminated signs, windows, and canopies for aircraft. These applications can be attributed to the rigidity and transparency of the material.

Major manufacturers of PMMA include Arkema, Sumitomo Chemical, Kuraray, Chi Mei Corporation, and Evonik Industries.

PMMA is rapidly gaining popularity as a cost effective alternative to polycarbonate. In addition, the material does not contain bisphenol A, which is known for causing ailments. PMMA is largely used in applications where UV resistance, transparency, and tensile strength is given priority over resistance to chemicals and heat.
