Synopsis of Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) Market:


Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) is a transparent thermoplastic that is widely used as a lightweight or shatter-resistant substitute for the glass. PMMA or poly (methyl 2methyl propanoate) is the polymer of Methyl Methacrylate with chemical formula C5H8O2) n. It is a clear & colorless polymer available in various forms such as pellet and sheet and is marketed by various firms under brand names such as Plexiglas, Acrylite, Perspex, Plazcryl, Acrylplast, Altuglas, and Lucite, etc. PMMA exhibits superior properties such as excellent scratch resistance, transparency, and weather resistance. Additionally, mechanical and optical property degradation caused by UV exposure is minimal with PMMA. Such characteristics have enabled the PMMA applications in varied end-use industries such as construction, signs & displays, automotive, and electronics.


Increasing demand for lightweight automotive components to improve fuel efficiency & reduce carbon emissions is expected to boost the demand over the forecast period. The product is extensively used in the automotive applications including windshields & sun visors, caravan windows, taillights & headlights, and automotive glazing, among others. Growth in PMMA demand from construction industry is largely influenced by prevailing macroeconomic conditions and is subject to vary in different parts of the globe. The rapid increase in the usage of PMMA in facades is set to uplift market growth, specifically, in Europe and the Middle East. The rapid development of optoelectronics in terms of technology and adaptability is a key factor driving PMMA demand. Development of novel application fields such as panel lighting and the light-guide film is anticipated to augment growth over the next seven years. Increasing construction spending in Asia Pacific and the Middle East is further expected to boost market growth over the forecast period. Countries such as China and India have witnessed significant capital inflows and development of public-private partnership programs in the construction industry. Over the past decade, PMMA Market has witnessed highly volatile phases with brisk fluctuations in demand. This has been influenced by the ongoing progressions in end-use industries such as automotive and construction. However, the increasing penetration of PMMA in a sign and display industry stabilized the demand trend and is expected to continue benefiting the growth of the PMMA Market over the forecast period. Increasing focus on sustainable polymers supported by favorable government regimes is compelling industry participants to shift focus towards bio-based raw materials. Governments and environmental bodies are constantly working towards commercializing different bio-based grades of PMMA in various applications.
