Acrylonitrile Market Overview
According to the latest research conducted, the demand for Acrylonitrile is anticipated to grow with a compelling growth rate of about 3.5% to 5.0% in between the coming assessment period of 2021-2031.
Ammonia, propylene and propane are used as a raw material for the production of acrylonitrile. It is used in many industries for the production of variety of polymers and thermoplastics. Some major uses include acrylic fibres, nitrile rubber, ABS and others.
The increasing demand for acrylic fibres manufactured from acrylonitrile is expected to drive the market over the forecast period. It is also one of the primary raw materials in the production of plastics and composites, which is further anticipated to propel its global demand.
What is Driving Demand for Acrylonitrile
Major factors driving the market are the growing demand from construction industry and automotive industry. The extensive usage of acrylonitrile in the building sector for headliners, interior grills, centre consoles, and other applications is one of the primary drivers driving the market's growth. The construction industry's rapid rise has fueled the market demand.
It is also used in the automotive industry to make critical components such as seatbelts, instrument panels, dashboards, and other such items. The increased usage of nitrile rubber and other plastics in automotive manufacturing aids in weight reduction and efficiency gains. These are the primary drivers of market growth over the forecast period.
Growth of Textile and Automotive Industry Increases the Demand of Acrylonitrile
The growing textile and apparel industry in emerging economies of the Asia-Pacific region, due to rising urbanization and increasing affordability is anticipated to drive the market for acrylic fibre over the forecast period.
Acrylic fibres are used extensively in the textile and packaging industries. They possess high resistance to laundry bleach, ultraviolet degradation, and microbiological attack, along with an aesthetic appeal.
These fibres are also light in weight and have a comfort feel the softness, making them a great choice for clothing. People's lifestyles have changed dramatically as a result of rapid urbanisation. As cities grow, so does the demand for transportation.
To meet this rising demand, many vehicle manufacturers have developed industrial operations in various regions of the world. As the need for car parts, accessories, and raw materials has grown, so has the demand for spare parts, accessories, and raw materials.
Acrylonitrile is a chemical substance that is used to make bumpers, dashboards, seats, lighting equipment, centre consoles, and headliners for automobiles. In recent years, such broad applications have significantly expanded the scope of this substance in the market.
APAC Market Outlook
