The analysts forecast the Global Acrylic Acid and its Derivatives market to grow at a CAGR of 6.64 percent over the period 2014-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increased demand for super-absorbent polymers which are formed by the polymerization of acrylic acid. The Global Acrylic Acid and its Derivatives market has also been witnessing the increasing production of bio-based acrylic acid from sugar feedstock. However, the increasing cost of raw materials such as propylene and brent crude oil, which are used for the production of acrylic acid, could pose a challenge to the growth of this market. 

The report, the Global Acrylic Acid and its Derivatives Market 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers North America, Europe, the APAC region, and the ROW; it also covers the Global Acrylic Acid and its Derivatives market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

The Global Acrylic Acid and its Derivatives market is expected to witness an increase in the production of bio-based acrylic acid. For instance, Dow Chemical, a leading vendor, is expected to commence the commercial production of acrylic acid derived from the fermentation of sugar between 2014 and 2016. The acrylic acid thus produced will be obtained from the intermediate 3-hydroxypropionic acid. Additionally, BASF is expected to collaborate with other companies such as Novozymes A/S and Cargill Inc. for the production of bio-based acrylic acid from 3-hydroxypropionic acid.

According to the report, one of the most important drivers is the increased demand for super-absorbent polymers. Super-absorbent polymers are formed through the polymerization of acrylic acid. The increased demand for such polymers from end-user segments such as Baby Diapers and Adult Incontinence Products is expected to contribute significantly to the demand for acrylic acid.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in the market is the increase in the cost of raw materials such as propylene and Brent crude oil, which are used to produce acrylic acid.
