The European acetic acid market is expected to register a CAGR of 4.30% during the forecast period, 2018-2023. Vinyl Acetate Monomers (VAM) dominated the market by application in 2017, with nearly 34% share in the market, while the purified terephthalic acid (PTA) segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR through the forecast period.
By application, VAM dominated the acetic acid market, with a market share of more than 35%, followed by PTA at 22.52% in 2017. The demand for acetic acid from VAM’s has been at a steady rise, owing to the rising demand from Germany, Spain, and Russia.
In Europe, Germany has the largest share in the market, and accounted for nearly 29% of the total market share in 2017. VAM is the key raw material in the manufacturing of water-based adhesives, which account for a significant share of the adhesives & sealants market. Germany is also expected to experience the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing demand from Germany is expected to boost the demand for acetic acid over the forecast period.
Major Key Players are BP, Celanese, Deicil, DowDuPont, Showa Denko and Eastman Chemical Company, GNFC Ltd, and Lyondell Basell, amongst others.
