Acrylamide Tertiary-Butyl Sulfonic Acid (ATBS) Market Overview

The acrylamide tertiary-butyl sulfonic acid (ATBS) market is expected to gain a market value of USD 16 Billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 12% from 2022-2030.

Acrylamide tertiary-butyl sulfonic acid is a highly responsive singular sulfonic acid acrylic monomer. It is also known as AMPS (Acrylamide 2-methyl-1-propane sulfonic acid) and is used in several polymerization processes. The multipurpose substance possesses thermal stability, hydrophilicity, hydrolytic nature, polarity, and reactivity ratio. ATBS can be copolymerized with acrylonitrile, acrylic esters, acrylic acid, and acrylamides, as it is highly polymerizable. 

The growth in the acrylamide tertiary-butyl sulfonic acid market can be accredited to the growing demand for coatings and paints, water treatment, personal care, and textiles auxiliaries & acrylic fiber applications. In terms of type, the granular/powder segment is predicted to lead the market during the forecast period owing to its properties, such as high solubility and small viscosity. By region, Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest-increasing market during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Analysis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 has put the world in the most hazardous situation. The acrylamide tertiary-butyl sulfonic acid market in India and abroad was massively affected during the pandemic. The market carrying the consumers, suppliers, manufacturers, and some distributors has been knocked out hard.

  • In October 2021- Oct, 2021: Vinati Organics infuses ₹800 crores to boost its top line - The speciality chemicals and organic intermediaries’ manufacturer Vinati Organics Ltd, is in the process of completing ₹800 crore investments to boost its top line. It has recently completed expansion of acrylamide tertiary-butyl sulfonic acid (ATBS) manufacturing and started a butyl-phenol factory. In addition, it has started the merger process with Veeral Additives Pvt. Ltd (VAPL) for achieving a revenue target of ₹2,000 crore in 2022-23.“An antioxidants plant should start in January 2022 after completion of the merger. Combining all this, we are aiming for ₹1,500 crore of revenue in FY 2022 and ₹2,000 crore in FY 2023,” says Vinati Saraf Mutreja, managing director and CEO. The manufacturer posted ₹269 crore profit on a revenue of ₹954 crore revenue. In the previous year, the profit was higher at ₹333 crore and revenue at ₹1,028 crore.Vinati has outperformed the benchmark indexes in the last 10 years and reached a market value of ₹20,000 crore.
