Global Polymethyl Methacrylate Market, By Type (Extruded Sheet, Pellets, Beads, Cast Sheets & Blocks, Others), Grade (Optical Grade, General Purpose Grade), Application (Signs & Displays, Construction, Automotive, Lighting Fixtures, Electronics, Sanitary Ware, Others), Geography (North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa) – Industry Trends and Forecast to 2026

Market Analysis: Global Polymethyl Methacrylate Market

Global Polymethyl Methacrylate Market is set to rise from its initial estimated value of USD 4.65 billion in 2018 to an estimated value of USD 6.13 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 3.5% in the forecast period of 2019-2026. This anticipated rise in the market value can be attributed to the increasing demand of lightweight materials from the major industries for the replacement of heavy weight materials already in use.

Market Definition: Global Polymethyl Methacrylate Market

Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) is also known as acrylic glass or acrylic, is a transparent thermoplastic which comes in the form of sheets, blocks, pellets, bead and even other sorts. The material is used as a lightweight substitute to glass that is more durable, versatile and can even be used as a shatterproof glass. Due to its transparency and light weight it is very majorly applied for LCD panels and display sign covers.

In 2016, in a report published by Macquarie Bank, 88.1 million cars & light vehicles were sold, in 2017 that number rose by an estimated 3.7%, and in 2018 that number is expected to rise another 3.6% by 2018, these numbers are expected to positively affect the demand of polymethyl methacrylate as automotive industry is one of the major end-users of it.

Market Drivers:

  • Increasing demand from a number of applicable industries is expected to drive the market growth
  • Increase in awareness of the capabilities and advantages of polymethyl methacrylate in replacing other heavy weigh materials as a lightweight substitute is also expected to drive the market growth

Market Restraints:

  • Fluctuation and variability in prices of raw materials is expected to restrain the market growth
  • Lack of raw material causing the supply of these materials to fluctuate is also expected to restrain the market growth
