DUBLIN, May 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/647w72/acrylic_resin) has announced the addition of the "Acrylic Resin Market by Type, Solvency, Property & Application - Trends & Forecast to 2019" report to their offering.
Acrylic resins are thermoplastic or thermosetting plastic substances generally derived from acrylic acids, meth acrylic acids or other related compounds. On basis of chemistry, we can classify acrylic resins into three main classes, acrylates, meth acrylates, and hybrids. Acrylates are primarily derived from methyl acrylates, ethyl acrylates, and butyl acrylates.
Few other complex acrylates like 2-Ethylhexyl acrylates (2-EHA) are also part of acrylates. Under meth acrylates, methyl meth acrylates, ethyl meth acrylates, and butyl meth acrylates are major classifications. Hybrids are blends of epoxy, phenol, urethane or alkyds with acrylics to enhance their properties.
Acrylic resins are used in paints, coatings, construction applications, commercial and industrial applications, paper and paperboard industry, textile and fibers, plastics and adhesives. Paints & coatings industry includes segments like automotive coatings, decorative coatings, and DIY (Do-It-Yourself) coatings.
The construction application varies from glazing sheets to sanitary wares. Acrylic glass is a good substitute for glass due to its hardness. The industrial and commercial applications include special coatings used in industries, tail lights in automotive industries, and treated acrylic glass for scratch resistant property. In paper and paperboard industry, acrylics are used as to improve printing quality, color, smoothness, opacity, or other surface characteristics.
Asia-Pacific dominated the global acrylic resins market, followed by Europe. New projects and investment in Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Africa is expected to drive the industry.
With the market participants' growing interest in the acrylic resins market, it is expected that the acrylic resins market will register a strong growth in the near future. Largely, the Acrylic resins market is fragmented in nature with the leading participants, BASF SE, The DOW Chemical Co., Arkema SA, Air Products and Chemicals, Inc., Formosa Plastics Corporation, Nippon Shokubai Co., Ltd., Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation, DIC Corporation, Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc., and Hitachi Chemical Co., Ltd.
