Acrolein Market

Acrolein Market:Global Industry Analysis 2015 - 2019 and Opportunity Assessment; 2020 - 2030

Market Overview

Acrolein Market: Overview

Acrolein is an unsaturated aldehyde, colourless liquid and has a disagreeable acrid smell. It is also known as 2-propenal. Acrolein is manufactured by the catalytic reduction process with the help of petrochemical feed stocks such as propylene and glycerine.

It is primarily used as a chemical intermediate and in a specialty chemicals to produce several applications. It is one of the major key intermediate for the production of acrylic acid and methionin.

From last several years, acrolein is augmenting its importance in paints and plastic industry owing to its versatile applications.The other notable uses of Acrolein include herbicide to control submersed and floating weeds, as well as algae, in irrigation canals.

In biocide and scavenger for hydrogen sulfide and mercaptans in the oil and gas industry.

Acrolein: Market Dynamics

The global demand for acrolein is estimated to witness for a considerable transformation depending on its raw material and its diversified applications and the demand is expected to continue its dominance in the coming forecast period.

Increasing demand of engineering plastic and polymer applications is expected to drive the demand of acrolein market in the coming forecast period, followed by agrochemicals.

Oilfield chemicals will also imbibe a substantial amount of Acrolein in the scope of water treatment applications.However, some of the key challenges which can hamper the market growth are, that acrolein being carcinogenic is subject to high regulated usage in target applications.

Additionally, depletion of resources and ambiguous glycerol availability which is expected to hinder the growth of the acrolein market over the next assessment period.

As sustainable approach has been taken by various key players across the world to cope up with the problem of reducing crude oil sources estimated in the near future.

Bio-based glycerol is now gaining traction for being used as substitute feedstock to manufacturer acrolein, so as to reduce the dependency on natural resources in the coming future as well as to achieve better acrolein yield.

COVID-19 crisis impact

With the continued growth and healthy consumption of water treatment chemicals amidst COVID-19 pandemic, the acrolein market is expected to be driven mainly from its use in agrochemicals sector as well as in oilfield chemicals.

However, the demand rate will be subdued from other applications such as paints, chemical intermediates owing to both demand and supply contraction as well as presence of substitute ingredients.The recovery period is expected to be from the next 4-6 quarters.

Acrolein Market: Regional Outlook

Globally, the U.S., Japan and Western Europe are the key region of the acrolein production. Key manufacturers from the Europe are planning to expand their production capacity to manage the overall demand.

The U.S. is the key exporter of the acrolein from the last couple of years and is expected to witness a lucrative growth over the coming assessment period.

In Asia Pacific, China expected to be the key importer due to its significantly increasing plastic markets. In future, India anticipated to be next from Asia Pacific region, owing to its steadily rising polymer as well as paints markets.

Additionally, ASEAN countries such as Indonesia has huge potential for the acrolein and its allied products market in the coming future.

In the coming years, Indonesia, might have possibility to lead in the South East Asia region owing to reasonable labour availability and low manufacturing costs.

Middle East & Africa and Latin America market are anticipated to witness for potential growth for the acrolein market in the coming future, especially from countries such as GCC countries, Brazil, Turkey, Saudi Arabia South Africa, and Argentina among others.

Demand of acrolein in MEA and Latin America region is owing to rise in demand from polymer and paints & coatings industry.
