Acrylic Acid possesses different properties such as low temperature and good weather ability which enables its usage in numerous applications like surface coatings, sealants & adhesive, agriculture, plastic sheets and diapers among others. Globally, the market for Acrylic Acid is growing at a CAGR of 5.14% during forecasted period.

On basis of type segment, superabsorbent polymers hold the market share of 19% in 2015.  Superabsorbent polymer is mainly acrylic acid based polymer which are capable of absorbing more than 10 times of their own weight. The use of superabsorbent polymers revolutionized the diaper industry. Diaper market accounted for the largest market share registering CAGR of 5.85% during the forecasted period. Thus, rising demand of diapers, adult incontinence products and feminine hygiene products in personal care industry is likely to propel the Acrylic Acid Market. Additionally, superabsorbent polymers are widely used in agriculture sector as well specifically in irrigation. Rising government investments in agriculture activity especially in emerging economies is anticipated to drive the acrylic acid market growth. Acrylic acid when reacted with alcohols gives commodity acrylates. Thus, increasing consumption of commodity acrylates in paints and coatings industry is also expected to boost the market demand.  Moreover, acrylic acid is widely used in construction industry such as in the form of protective coatings and weathering resistance.
