The Global Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate (ASA) Market is expected to reach USD 1,050.6 Million by 2025, registering a CAGR of 6.1%. Acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA) is a copolymer of styrene-acrylonitrile resin and acrylic rubber. It is a functional plastic that exhibits excellent weatherability property. ASA’s unique physical properties help to enhance the appearance of automobiles and buildings for a longer period. It is chiefly used in construction activities and manufacturing of furniture and automobile exteriors parts. In addition, its high stability, toughness, and resistance to aging & yellowing make it suitable in construction application. Hence, the high demand for ASA in the end-use industries is influencing the industrial players to increase the production capacity. For instance, in December 2018, INEOS Styrolution a Germany-based styrene supplier has announced to construct a new plant to produce 100,000 tons of ASA per year by 2021. The company has expanded the ASA production capacity to establish its market position in the global acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA) market.
Acrylonitrile styrene acrylate plays a significant role in the automotive industry. The lightweight of ASA helps to increase the fuel efficiency of the automobiles. It is used in the manufacturing of side mirrors, window profiles, and radiator grille. Furthermore, technological advancements in the automotive industry have increased the demand for high-performance plastics. Acrylonitrile styrene acrylate helps to design automobile parts with complex geometries, which is difficult with the help of traditional metals. It optimizes energy efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions. According to the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles (OICA), the manufacturing of automobiles has significantly increased in India, Malaysia, Thailand, Brazil, and South Africa. Thus, the increasing manufacturing and sale of automobiles is expected to boost the demand for ASA and fuel the global market growth during the forecast period.
Some of the prominent players in the global acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA) market are BASF SE (Germany), Lauren International (US), A. Schulman (US), INEOS Styrolution Group GmbH (Germany), LANXESS (Germany), LG Chem Ltd (South Korea), SABIC (Saudi Arabia), Chi Mei Corporation (Taiwan), and Entec Polymers (US), among others.
