Emulsion Polymers Market Trends

  • Growing Prevalence of spine degeneration to boost the market growth

The  expansion of residential and commercial development has significantly influenced the demand for emulsion polymers used in architectural paints and coatings. Due to the Asia-Pacific region's apparent economic potential and expanding housing needs, large-scale residential and commercial development projects have been underway. Investments in businesses like tourism, hospitality, and healthcare are encouraged by government measures to boost non-oil industries in the Middle East, which has raised the demand for and spending on commercial infrastructure. In North America, there are many more home construction and remodeling projects. A projected 15.6% more housing units—1,595,100—were started in 2021 than in 2020 (1,379,600). Therefore the growing construction industry has enhanced the emulsion polymers market CAGR ly in recent years.

In the near future, it is anticipated that increased adhesive use in the automobile coating industry will considerably contribute to market growth. As environmental concerns grow, regulatory agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) are being forced to set strict guidelines to promote the use of bio-based products and reduce harmful environmental effects. Toluene, methyl chloride, styrene, acrylonitrile, and other harmful chemical emissions are under control thanks to regulations set by these regulatory organizations under the Clean Air Act. These programs encourage the use of water-based emulsion polymers rather than synthetic ones. Thus, the expanding automobile sector is another factor driving the growth of the emulsion polymers market revenue.
