Vinyl Acetate Market Trends

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

Increasing Demand from the Solar Industry

  • Most solar cells use ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) to encapsulate photovoltaic (PV) modules. It is due to its advantages, such as good light transmittance and elasticity, excellent melt fluidity, low processing temperature, and adhesive property.
  • The use of solar cells is constantly increasing worldwide. With increasing government support, the newly installed solar photovoltaic cell capacity increased worldwide over the past decade.
  • The total installed capacity of solar photovoltaics is increasing continually. Global cumulative solar PV capacity reached 940 GW in 2021, according to SolarPower Europe.
  • The solar market's growth represents a shift towards distributed and renewable energy technologies. Moreover, the solar PV capacity is expected to surpass 2.3 TW over the next three years, with an increase of over 1.4 TW compared to 2021. Additionally, around 168 GW of new PV capacity was installed in 2021.
  • Further, according to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the solar energy capacity in India peaked at nearly 49.7 GW in 2021. Thus, boosting the growth of the market studied.
  • Therefore, the factors above are expected to increase solar energy usage, increasing the vinyl acetate demand during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific to Dominate the Market

  • Asia-Pacific region is to witness robust growth in the vinyl acetate market, owing to the increasing expenditure on construction and the automotive industry in countries like China.
  • China stands as the largest producer in the automotive industry. According to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturing, the production of New Energy Passenger Vehicles in the country witnessed a year-on-year increase of 97.8 % in December 2022.
  • Further, the production of New Energy Commercial Vehicles in the country witnessed a year-on-year increase of 81% in December 2022. Thus, the expanding automotive market is expected to increase the demand for vinyl acetate in the region.
  • Vinyl acetate is widely used to produce paints, coatings, adhesives, and packaging materials. With China being a significant player in these markets, the demand for vinyl acetate is expected to grow during the forecast period.
  • Further, the Indian government increased public spending on infrastructure. For instance, according to the Ministry of Statistics and Program Implementation's Infrastructure and Project Monitoring Division, the government had 1,559 projects in the pipeline valued at approx USD 354 billion as of May 2022.
  • Furthermore, owing to a strong pipeline of infrastructure projects in several sectors, the Indian construction industry will grow significantly during the forecast period.
  • Therefore, as vinyl acetate finds varied applications in end-user industries, such as coatings, adhesives, primers, etc., the demand for vinyl acetate is projected to increase in the country during the forecast period.
