By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Polymer Emulsion Market by Type (Acrylics, Polyurethane Dispersions, SB Latex, Vinyl acetate Polymer and Others), by Application (Adhesives & Sealants, Paints & Coatings, Paper & Paperboard, and Others) – Trends & Forecasts to 2020” report to their offering.

The market size of polymer emulsion is projected to reach USD 32.2 billion by 2020, signifying a firm annualized growth rate of 7.7% between 2015 and 2020.

Among the aforesaid applications, paint & coatings are the largest segment for the projected period while paper & paperboard is the fastest growing application for the same period. Manufacturing (industrial machinery, consumer durables), transportation (automotive, aviation, marine, and traffic paints), and architectural (decorative or interior coatings and masonry or exterior coatings) are the end use industries of polymer emulsion paints & coatings. Polymer emulsion paints & coatings are not flammable, which reduces its storage, handling charges and fire insurance costs.

Manufacturing process of polymer emulsion paints & coatings have lower carbon footprint as they consume less energy. Other reasons attributing the use of polymer emulsion paints & coatings are low cost of handling and post painting cleanup cost. Polymer emulsion adhesives and sealants offer higher stability and weathering for specific period of time when compared to the other applications of polymer emulsion. This property of adhesives and sealants attributes to its growth.

The polyurethane dispersion is estimated to be the fastest-growing type between 2015 and 2020 as it conforms to several environmental regulations of low VOC content. Currently, Asia Pacific is the biggest and the fastest growing market for polymer emulsion. Rapid growth of end user industries such as consumer durables, buildings & construction and transportation in Asia Pacific is leading to significant rise in the polymer emulsion market. Moreover low costs to set up manufacturing facilities is driving the growth of polymer emulsion market in the region.
