Pune, India, August 2020, MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has published a Half-Cooked Research Report on the Global Acrylic Sheets Market.

Market Forecast

Global Acrylic Sheets Market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of over 5.5% during the forecast period and cross USD 6 Billion by 2027.

The acrylic sheet is a fiber sheet manufactured by utilizing two and more derivatives of acrylic acid. Polymethyl methacrylate acrylic is one of the most used forms of acrylic. It is widely used on account of its features, such as weatherability and versatility. Acrylic sheets can be colored or tinted, mirrored, or opaque.

Regulatory Framework

Regulations implied on the raw materials used for manufacturing acrylic sheets affect their production of acrylic sheets. Moreover, these raw materials are petroleum-based, and the depletion of fossil fuels can have a negative impact on the growth of this market.


By Type

  • Based on type, the global acrylic sheets market is bifurcated into extruded acrylic sheets and cast acrylic sheets.

  • Extruded acrylic sheets are affordable and malleable than cast acrylic. They are also clearer than glass and do not become yellow after prolonged sun exposure, because it resists ultraviolet light degradation. Additionally, it has a higher impact resistance than glass and exhibits good electrical and UV resistivity.

  • The cast acrylic sheets segment emerged as dominating segment as it has low water absorption, excellent optical properties, outstanding resistance to long-term exposure to sunlight and weathering, lightweight and bullet resistance. The segment is further divided into cell cast acrylic sheets and continuous acrylic sheets.

By Application

  • Based on application, the global acrylic sheets market is segmented into building & architecture, visual communication & retail, furniture & design, automotive & transport, electrical & electronics, sanitaryware, and others.

  • The building & architecture segment emerged as the leading and fastest-growing segment on account of the wide use of windows, skylights, partitions, doors, patio roofing, and balcony guards. The expanding building & construction sector across the globe, coupled with the increasing demand for home renovation, drive the use of acrylic sheets.

  • Retail displays, point of sale displays, and visual communications, use acrylic sheets because they exhibit three-dimensional elements or unique lighting effects, and are available in a range of colors, textures, and finish options.

  • Acrylic sheets are lightweight and fingerprint, mar, and scratch-resistant, which makes them an ideal choice of material for furniture & design applications. They are widely used in chairs, tables, countertops, and other such applications.

  • The growing automotive & transportation industry on account of increased business travels and high disposable income drive the demand for acrylic sheets. These sheets are used in mirror housings, rear outer lenses, badging, autonomous driving sensor lenses, motorcycle windshields, commercial aircraft interior window panels, glider & helicopter glazing, and vehicle registration plates.

  • Owing to its lightweight, shock and impact resistance, and excellent fabrication properties, acrylic sheets find uses in electricals & electronics applications. They are also used in infra-red transmitter and receiver windows, bespoke stereo speaker systems, turntables, and iconic electric guitars.

  • They find applications in sanitary ware such as tubs, sinks, and showers.

  • The others segment includes lightings, medical equipment, and marine.
