Styrene Acrylic Emulsion Polymer Market Scenario


Styrene Acrylic Emulsion Polymer is produced by an emulsion polymerization of styrene and different acrylate esters such as butyl acrylate, acrylic acid, etc. Styrene acrylic emulsion polymer are versatile in nature owing to its ability to perform as building blocks and high glass transition temperature. Styrene acrylic emulsion polymer are cost effective and are widely used as an opacifier in cosmetics & personal care products. They possess excellent properties such as low VOCs (volatile organic compound) emission rate, good durability, and UV resistance due to which it finds application in end use industries such as paper & packaging, building & construction, paints & coatings, cosmetics & personal care, and others.


Increasing consumer awareness regarding harmful effects of solvent based emulsion, is driving styrene acrylic emulsion polymer market growth. However, in coming years high price of raw material styrene is expected to hinder the market growth.


Increasing importance as an opacifier in cosmetics & personal care industry is anticipated to drive the styrene acrylic emulsion polymer market growth. Additionally, social and regulatory intervention in promoting the usage of eco-friendly emulsion has benefitted the demand of styrene acrylic emulsion polymer market. Escalating investments in the mining and construction industry along with expansion of industrial sector in developing regions is driving demand for styrene acrylic emulsion polymer.
