Polymethyl Methacrylate Market Growth & Trends

The global polymethyl methacrylate market size is anticipated to reach USD 8.1 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.3% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The growing demand for lightweight and high-strength materials in the automotive and construction industry is propelling the polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) industry growth.Polymethyl methacrylate has witnessed a rise in demand from the sign & displays industry for the manufacturing of sheets, owing to its attributes including low weight and shatter resistance. PMMA is additionally considered an alternative to glass used in windows, aquariums, hockey rinks, and others.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the market due to the lockdown in the majority of countries. Owing to the vast spread of the virus, a majority of the manufacturing and production plants were shut off, which directly impacted the global supply chain. In addition, the ban on imports and exports caused a shortage of raw materials, therefore, disrupting manufacturing activities. Mergers & acquisitions, agreements, R&D activities, and expansions are the key strategies adopted by the industry participants. For instance, in December 2022, Chevron Phillips Chemical and QatarEnergy merged to construct an integrated polymer facility on the U.S. gulf coast.
