Acrylonitrile is an organic compound and the chemical formula of this compound is CH2 CHCN. It is simple organic compound because it mostly contain carbon and hydrogen atoms. Acrylonitrile is a toxic compound with a pale-yellow colour and in liquid form. Acrylonitrile is produced by combining ammonia, propylene, and air with the help of process called ammoxidation. During this process ammonia propylene, and air are fed through a catalyst at a high temperature. Acrylonitrile is harmful to the lungs, eyes, skin, and nervous system. It may cause cancer.
Acrylonitrile Market Dynamics
- Rise the demand in textile sector
Acrylonitrile is used for the formation of Acrylic fiber which is mainly used mainly in the textile sector and it is used for the production of apparel, home textiles, and carpet flooring due to this rise the demand of acrylonitrile which are expected to increase the growth of the acrylonitrile market.
- Increase the demand in production of polymer
The acrylonitrile is also used to form acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) which provides thermal and chemical stability, whereas the butadiene component adds strength and toughness. The styrene gives the glossy and nice finished to the polymer. It is very resistant and also has high tensile strength to physical impacts and chemical corrosion, these properties allow the finished plastic to withstand heavy use.
- Usage of acrylonitrile
Acrylonitrile can be polymerized into a compound which is known as polyacrylonitrile. Here, the prefix 'poly' means many so during the polymerization many acrylonitrile molecules connected to one another and form polyacrylonitrile. Polyacrylonitrile is a very versatile polymer, and its fibers are used in many things such as bicycle frames, fishing poles, tennis rackets, and even missiles!
The present demand for the acrylonitrile is expected to be driven by growing demand for acrylic fibers, especially in the developing economies. The rising demand in the apparel and textile industry in emerging economies of the region because of increasing affordability and growing urbanization is projected to drive the acrylonitrile market during the forecast period. With an aesthetic appeal, acrylic fibers ultraviolet degradation, have high resistance to laundry bleach, and microbiological attack. These fibers have less weight and have a comfortable feel which is making them a great choice for clothing. Due to higher demand of acrylic fibre create the beneficial opportunities for the growth of the acrylonitrile market.
Increasingly stringent environmental rules across the globe regarding the production of chemicals and their disposal into the environment are hampering the acrylonitrile market growth considerably. Workers exposed through inhalation to high levels of acrylonitrile for less than one hour experienced lots of health issues. The symptoms associated with acrylonitrile poisoning include labored and irregular breathing, limb weakness, and others that have vigorously affected human health. Increase In the use of low price polyester fiber in textile is also anticipated to obstruct the growth of acrylonitrile market.
