Vinyl Acetate To Dominate The Acetic Acid Consumption Throughout The Forecast
Mumbai, Maharashtra, August 7, 2020 – Prismane Consulting is pleased to publish its Acetic Acid Market Study Report and Techno-Commercial Market Model.
Acetic Acid is a commodity chemical produced by carbonylation of methyl alcohol or methanol. The major end-use applications of acetic acid include vinyl acetate, acetic anhydride, ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, purified terephthalic acid (PTA), monochloroacetic acid, and others. Prismane Consulting estimates vinyl acetate to account for the largest acetic acid consumption followed by purified terephthalic acid, ethyl acetate and acetic anhydride at a global level. Vinyl acetate monomer is predominantly used in paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, and a number of polymer applications. PTA remains the single largest outlet for acetic acid in China, which is the key raw material for polyethylene terephthalate (PET) fibers and engineering plastic resins.
In terms of supply, China accounts for over 50% of the global production capacity owing to its large availability of coal-derived methanol. In terms of consumption, Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest share of acetic acid globally. The region remains the most attractive for acetic acid markets in the long-term forecast on the back of high growth markets including India, China, Taiwan, Thailand, etc. Moreover, Prismane Consulting forecasts low growth in the matured markets of Western Europe, US, and Japan.
