  • The global acetic acid market is expected progress at a CAGR of 4.30% during the forecast period, (2018 – 2023). The Asia-Pacific region is estimated to lead the market, due to its rapid growth in the global textile market.

    Acetic acid is a key building block in the production of various chemicals, such as, vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), purified terephthalic acid (PTA), acetate esters, and acetic anhydride that are further used by a wide range of end-user industries, including synthetic fibers, textiles, inks, and pesticides. VAM is used to produce a variety of polymer and adhesives, while polyethylene terephthalate (PET), being a derivative of terephthalic acid, is predominantly used to produce polyester for textiles and plastic bottles.

    Soaring Demand in Textile Market

    The global textile market is expected to witness a significant growth during the forecasted period, attributed to factors, such as, increasing disposable income and standard of living of the people. The Asia-Pacific market is anticipated to be the largest market for textile industry, due to the strong industrial base of the region. The adoption of innovative and path-breaking technologies is providing a competitive edge to the companies, to enhance their profit margins. Furthermore, increasing population, improving economic condition such as rising GDP and disposable income of the people, drives the market in the region and blooming manufacturing sector

    Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) to Dominate the Market

    Among all the acetic acid derivatives, VAM led the market with the highest global consumption in 2017. VAM is a key raw material in the manufacturing of water-based adhesives, which accounts for significant use in the global adhesive and sealants market. The increasing demand from Asia-Pacific is expected to boost the demand for acetic acid, during the forecast period. Additionally, the acetate esters segment is expected to be the fastest growth segment of the market, which is primarily driven by the growing demand from the coatings industry.
