Market Definition

Polyacrylic acid is a high molecular weight acrylic acid polymer. It is created by polymerizing acrylic ester of acrylonitrile, followed by hydrolysis of the product. When polyacrylic acid molecules are dissolved in water, they produce negatively charged or anionic polymers that absorb and retain water molecules. Furthermore, it is widely used as an emulsifying and thickening agent in disposable diapers, detergents, and other industries such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and paints.

Polyacrylic Acid Market Dynamics

This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:

Drivers

  • High Demand Across End Users

Growing demand for super absorbent polymers, increasing usages of the product as a thickener, dispersant, antiscalant, binder, and others are some of the key factors that will likely drive the growth of the polyacrylic acid market during the forecast period. Moreover the polyacrylic acid is rapidly being used in wastewater treatment and sewage plants and wastewater effluents adding to market growth. The widespread use of polyacrylic acid in various end-use industries is projected to boost the overall growth.

  • Increased Population and Rapid Economic Growth

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the proportion of people aged 60 and up in the global population will nearly double from 12% in 2015 to 22% in 2050. Improving health-care standards, longer life expectancy, and an ageing population are expected to drive demand for adult incontinence products during the forecast period. As a result, the global polyacrylic acid market is expanding.

Moreover, polyacrylic acid is essential in reducing hydrate formation, which has become a major issue in oil and gas operations which is expected to be a major consumer of polyacrylic acid. The increasing awareness about the advantage of polyacrylic acid will further propel the growth rate of polyacrylic acid market.

Opportunities

  • Development and Research and Development Activities

Furthermore, the growing number of development in industrial as well as municipal water treatment extend profitable opportunities to the market players in the forecast period of 2022 to 2029. Additionally, the increasing research and development activities for the prevalence of bio based raw material will further expand the future growth of the polyacrylic acid market.

Restraints/Challenges

  • Governance of Regulations

Numerous independent and government environmental authorities are investigating polyacrylic acid. For instance, the use of polyacrylic acid for water treatment must comply with the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the Clean Water Act (CWA), and other laws. Polyacrylic acid is also constantly monitored by the International Agency for Research on Cancer and World Health Organization agencies (WHO). The FDA has added sodium salt of polyacrylic acid to its list of food additives (Food and Drug Administration). Therefore, the global polyacrylic acid market is governed by strict regulations, which is projected to hamper the market growth over forecast period.

  • Availability of Substitutes

Also, the availability of inorganic chemical alternatives for water purification and wastewater treatment procedures, such as alum pose and poly aluminum chloride, may stymie market growth. Therefore, this will challenge the polyacrylic acid market growth rate.

COVID-19 Impact on Polyacrylic Acid Market

The recent outbreak of coronavirus had a significant impact on the polyacrylic acid market. The economic slowdown caused by the pandemic has reduced demand for cosmetics and other personal care products that contain polyacrylic acid in the form of gels and emulsifying agents. This has had a negative impact on the global polyacrylic acid market. The agricultural industry has been severely impacted by the economic slowdown caused by the pandemic. Heavy investments in products such as super absorbents for soil have decreased, affecting agricultural demand for polyacrylic acid. Over the forecast period, the aforementioned determinants will weigh the market's revenue trajectory over the forecast period.

On the flip side, there has been a significant increase in public hygiene awareness and the use of detergents and cleaners in sewage systems and other places. As a result, consumption of polyacrylic acid in the detergent industry has increased.
