Emulsion Polymers (EPs) include four types of polymers. These are acrylics, vinyls, SB latexes, and others. The demand for EPs is derived from end-user industries such as building & construction, transportation, consumer durables and others. EPs are preferred over their solvent-borne counterparts due to two main reasons. Firstly, EPs have low VOC content, which makes it environmentally favorable. Secondly, EPs are not dispersed in solvent, which makes it a safer to use, as water-borne polymers are easier to handle than solvent-borne polymers.

Vinyl emulsions are currently the fastest growing type of EP. The global market for vinyl emulsions is growing with a CAGR of 8.1%. Adhesives & sealants is a major application for vinyl emulsions. Paints & coatings is also a popular application of vinyl emulsions. Acrylic vinyl emulsions as frequently used for paints & coating applications as this emulsion imparts a gloss and water resistive properties to the coated surfaces. It is also used for tile coating applications.

Acrylic emulsions are the most consumed EP by volume. The market is expected to reach $10,767.3 million by 2018. Acrylic emulsions are most widely used for paints & coating applications. Building & construction industry is the largest consumer for acrylic emulsions. Acrylic emulsion are used for architectural paint & coating applications. Adhesives & sealants is also a growing application for acrylic emulsions. Asia-Pacific with a CAGR of 8.9% is the fastest growing market for acrylic emulsions.

SB latex emulsions are mostly preferred for paper & paperboard applications. Coated papers are used for industrial as well as household printing applications. SB latexes are also used for flexible packaging applications. SB latex market by volume is expected to reach 2,651.9 kilotons by 2018.

This report follows a bottom up approach to estimate and forecast the global market for emulsion polymers by volume and revenue. A holistic approach has been followed in order to segment the entire market into definite types, applications, and geographies.
