What is Driving Demand for Crotonic Acid?

On the basis of application, the Paints & Coatings sector dominated demand share across regional markets. This is because crotonic acid is used to formulate Paints & Coatings, because of its ability to create copolymers when combined with other chemical compounds.

The acid monomer, when copolymerized with the other compound helps in the formation of specialty thickeners that are used in the production of glossy emulsion paints. These paints provide glowing effect that is useful in health & safety applications and also provide protective coating to the substrate. Thus, the growing sales of emulsion paints continues to drive the market.

The use of acid-based binders to bind pigments as well as form a coating sheet is increasing in the industry. The rising demand of paints and coatings from the construction, automotive, and packaging industries will boost the demand of this market.

Adhesive Resins to Augment Sales of Crotonic Acid

Adhesive resins segment has a prominent share in terms of application and is projected to grow at the fastest pace in the forecast period. Crotonic acid is used in the manufacture of copolymer dispersions for adhesive resins to improve their adhesion properties.

The increasing demand for acid-based adhesive formulations in the textile, packaging, automobile, as well as in electronics industries has boosted market growth in this sector. Manufacturers are striving to serve the ever increasing need of such industries to source application specific products to suit their exact needs, so as to produce specialty adhesive products.
