Emulsion Polymer Market Size To Reach $49.35 Billion By 2030

March 2023 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Emulsion Polymer Market Growth & Trends

The global emulsion polymer market size is anticipated to reach USD 49.35 billion by 2030 and it is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2024 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing construction activities across the world and growing application of emulsion polymers in the paint and coatings industry are driving the market.

Polymer emulsion is in high demand in a variety of industries because of its unique features, environmental benefits, and versatility of application. This increased need is attributed to a greater emphasis on environmental standards, and sustainability has resulted in a move to water-based systems in businesses that formerly relied on solvent-based formulations. Furthermore, polymer emulsions are used in the construction industry for applications such as waterproofing, cement modification, and surface treatments, which contributes to increased demand.

The increasing awareness among consumers of paint concepts and protective coatings, as well as the developing trend in interior decor, are driving the expansion of the emulsion resin market. Another factor driving market growth is the growing usage of paints and coating solutions in the automobile industry. Furthermore, customer demand for ecologically friendly products that provide a safe and healthy environment has increased global demand for water-based polymer emulsions. Population expansion is a result of global urbanization, which is likely to boost the need for housing, resulting in growing demand for end-user commodities.
