Methacrylic acid is a colorless, organic compound which has a very unpleasant odor. It is a carboxylic acid, which is soluble in water and in many organic solvents. The methacrylic acid is toxic in nature and may harm the surroundings if it is not properly handled. The main and primary use of methacrylic acid is to use as a building block for producing many polymer based products. Methacrylic acid can be easily polymerized and are broadly used in co-polymers which are used in the production of coatings, adhesives, textile, leather, pharmaceuticals, paper, in oil & gas etc.
Methacrylic acid is a mono functional methacrylate monomer which is used as a precursor for its esters such as methyl metharylate and poly methyl methacrylate. It is commonly manufactured by hydrolysis of methacrylamide sulfate. Also, the wastes are used to manufacture esters. The report covers application areas such as Adhesive & Sealants, intermediates, paint additives, coatings, and others.
Properties of methacrylic acid such as light weight and energy efficiency have contributed to the rising demand from various industries such as automotive, transportation, etc. Also, light weight vehicles has better efficiency and have lower emissions due to which there has been supportive government regulations from regions such as North America, Western Europe, and others. Also, manufactures are focusing on bio- based feedstock to manufacture methacrylic acid; thus there would be secure raw material supply which provides new opportunities for the growth of the market. The global market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 12.8% during 2014-2019.
