Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2033

Acrylic Resins Market size is poised to cross USD 30 billion by the end of 2033, growing at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2033. In the year 2022, the industry size of acrylic resins was over USD 20 billion. Growing population and home improvement activities are estimated to propel market growth. The need for housing rises in tandem with the expansion of the world's population, fueling a surge in building activities and home renovation initiatives. The demand for acrylic resins, which are frequently employed in construction as sealants, adhesives, and in the production of other building materials, is therefore increased. As per the estimations of the United States Census Bureau, the global population reached 7 billion in 2011 and may reach 8 billion in 2023.

Increasing demand for antimicrobial and antiviral coating and rapid urbanization is estimated to fuel the acrylic resins market size in the coming years.  The need for antimicrobial and antiviral coatings in a variety of settings, including hospitals, schools, and public transportation, has increased as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic, and this is projected to fuel demand for acrylic resins. The construction sector is also expanding quickly due to rapid urbanization, particularly in emerging nations, and this has increased demand for acrylic resins used in building and construction products. More than half the world’s population i.e., 55% of the population lived in urban areas in 2017 and more than 4.3 billion live in urban areas now in 2022.

Acrylic Resins Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Rising Use in Medical Sector - Acrylic resins are used in the manufacturing of dental fields for dental liners and denture bases. Also, for the production of test kits, syringes, blood filters, cuvettes, and connecting tubes. All these applications are estimated to boost market growth during the forecast period. The global imported trade value of syringes with or without needles was worth USD 7,723,804 in 2021.
  • Growing Industrial Manufacturing Sector – Given its widespread usage in the manufacture of several industrial goods, including machinery and equipment, acrylic resin demand is predicted to increase along with the industrial manufacturing sector. The manufacturing sector contributed about USD 2269.2 to the U.S Gross Domestic Product comprising 10.8% of the total GDP.
  • Increasing Disposable Income and Living Standards – The consumption of acrylic resins used in the manufacture of such items is driven by customers' increased propensity to invest in home renovation projects and durable consumer goods as their disposable income and living standards rise. The consumer price index (CPI) of all urban consumers raised 0.1% in Aug 2022, a rise of 8.3% in the last 12 months.
  • Rising Need for New Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities – Since acrylic resins are used to make medical devices and equipment like dental fillings and prostheses, the need for new hospitals and healthcare facilities is anticipated to increase. The government of Iraq invested over USD 750 million in healthcare infrastructure with new hospitals as per the estimations.
  • Increasing Demand in Construction Industry – The rising construction industry is attributed to the growing demand for paints & coatings. The need for acrylic resins used as adhesives, sealants, and plastic goods, is anticipated to increase as the construction industry expands and there is a greater demand for new homes. About USD 300 billion was spent on new public construction in 2018 as per the estimations.


  • Presence of Pollutants - The manufacture of acrylic resins, which are synthetic polymers, discharges pollutants into the environment, potentially harming both human health and the ecosystem. Pollutant levels may also have an impact on the overall market for acrylic resins if customers choose more ecologically friendly alternatives as they become more aware of the negative effects that synthetic materials have on the environment.
  • Increasing Number of Regulations
  • High Cost of Labor

Acrylic Resins Segmentation

End-user (Building & Construction, Automotive, Electronics, Packaging)

The global acrylic resins market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end-user into building & construction, automotive, electronics, packaging, and others. Out of these, the automotive segment is anticipated to hold the largest market size by the end of 2033 on the back of increasing vehicle purchases by individuals. Automotive coatings employ acrylic resins as binders to give the outside of the car durability and protection. They also serve as adhesives to join various parts and elements and are also employed in the production of interior trim, including door panels, dashboard elements, and seat coverings. Their usage is bound to increase with the growth in the automotive industry. For instance, the hybrid electric vehicles sale raised by 76% between 2020-2021.

Type (Water, Solvent Based)

The global acrylic resins market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by type into the water and solvent-based. Owing to its expanding usage across a range of applications, the solvent-based sector is predicted to have the greatest market share by the end of 2033. Solvents including ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, and xylene are used to create solvent-based acrylic resins. These resins are utilized in applications like coatings and adhesives, where a thicker and more solid layer is required. Their use will continue to grow with their growing use in metal and wood materials, and the growth of the construction sector. For instance, it is estimated that over 12,000 new buildings will be constructed by the end of 2050, according to projections.
