Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) Market according to our research experts:

Rising Product Usage in the Films Application

  • Ethylene vinyl acetate, or EVA, is a copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate. It is an extremely elastic and tough thermoplastic of excellent clarity and glosses with little odor.
  • EVA has good flex crack and puncture resistance, and it is relatively inert, adheres well to many substrates, and is heat sealable, which makes its use in film applications attractive.
  • Although EVA is used in numerous film applications, this resin is not used unaided but is combined with other film resins.
  • As per the flexible packaging association, flexible packaging represents approximately 20% of the total packaging and is the second largest packaging segment behind corrugated paper.
  • Moreover, in the flexible packaging segment, films and resins account for the largest input, accounting for over 66.67% of total flexible packaging material purchases.
  • EVA is only an average barrier to gases and moisture, which does not make it the first preference for food packaging applications and, as a result, is more often replaced by metallocene PE in many of these applications.
  • However, EVA remains an important packaging material, and the demand is expected to remain strong primarily for non-food applications.
  • Owing to the aforementioned factors, the demand for EVA films is expected to grow during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific to Dominate the Market

  • The Asia-Pacific market is the largest Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) market and is also expected to remain the largest market over the forecast period, owing to the major demand from China and India, majorly for the applications in the adhesive and packaging industry.
  • EVA is also increasingly used in footwear, hockey pads, martial art gloves, and other sports goods due to its shock absorber property.
  • China is among the top packaging industry in the world. The country is expected to witness consistent growth during the forecast period, owing to the rise of customized packaging in the food segment, like microwave food, snack foods, and frozen foods, along with increased exports.​
  • As per various reports, the Chinese Adhesives Market stood at USD 11.33 billion in 2022 and is projected to register a CAGR of 6.90% to reach USD 16.90 billion in 2028.
  • According to Invest India, the Indian market for paper and paperboard packaging materials was valued at USD 10.77 billion in 2021. It is expected to register a CAGR of 6.63% and to reach USD 15.69 billion by 2027.
  • The flexible packaging utilizes significant amount of EVA. As per the IBEF, the flexible packiging sector in India comprises 64% of the total packaging in the country.
  • Moreover, the increasing trends observed in the packaging materials exported from India are also favouring the market for EVA. According to IBEF, India's exports of packaging materials increased from USD 844 million in FY 2018–19 to USD 1,119 million in 2021–2022 at a CAGR of 9.9%.
  • All the aforementioned factors are expected to boost the demand for the market studied over the forecast period.
