Market Overview


Vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) is also known as acetic acid ethenyl ester, acetic acid ethylene ether, acetoxyethene, 1-acetoxyethylene, ethenyl ethanoate, ethenyl acetate, and acetic acid vinyl ester. VAM is produced when ethylene and acetic acid react with oxygen in the presence of a palladium catalyst. VAM is widely used in the manufacturing of other chemicals such as polyvinyl alcohol, polyvinyl acetate, ethylene vinyl acetate, vinyl acetate ethylene, ethylene vinyl alcohol, vinyl chloride-vinyl acetate copolymers, and others. The product finds application in adhesives, paints and coatings, laminated automotive and commercial building glass, textiles, packaging, and others.


The growth of the global vinyl acetate monomer market is driven by the rapidly growing packaging industry across the globe. The increasing demand for packaged beverages and food products owing to convenience and improved product shelf is expected to propel market growth. With the introduction of multiple-layer barrier packaging technology, demand for the product is rising in the packaging industry.


VAM consumption is increasing in the construction industry on account of rising residential and commercial infrastructure activities in both developed and developing regions. The increasing demand for adhesives and paints and coatings from major end-use industries such as automotive, construction, and packaging is also propelling market growth.


Some of the growth strategies adopted by the key players in the vinyl acetate monomer market include expansions, acquisitions, and new product launches. For instance, in 2019, Celanese Corporation, a US-based global technology and specialty materials company, expanded its production capacity of VAM in Clear Lake, Texas.
