Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Market size is poised to surpass USD 15 billion by the end of 2035, expanding around 3% CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of ethylene vinyl acetate was about USD 9 billion. The major factor driving the market revenue is the growth in demand for solar energy. In 2022, the production of global solar PV ascended by a record of close to 269 TWh (up about 25%), reaching approximately 1 299 TWh. Hence, the market demand is also estimated to surge. EVA is part of a solar module that ceases moisture and airborne particles from entering the solar cells and deteriorating them.

Additionally, owing to the rising emission of greenhouse gases the emphasis on solar energy production is growing. Utility-scale solar electricity creates from 394 to 447 MWh per acre each year, in accordance with recent data. Thus, one acre of solar panels with zero emissions decreases carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 121 and 138 metric tonnes annually. As a result, even governments all across the world are encouraging the adoption of solar energy. Therefore, with the growing demand for solar energy, the ethylene vinyl acetate market demand is also rising.

Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Agriculture Activities: Agrochemicals including pesticides, insecticides, and herbicides involve ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA). The primary advantages of employing EVA are that it necessitates fewer applications in the soil, supplies plants a constant and frequent supply of nutrients, reduces nutrient loss due to leaching, can be more convenient to handle than fertilizers. Also, they assist in preventing root damage brought on by high salt concentrations and lowers production costs.
  • Surge in Use of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate in Footwear: EVA is recently being utilized extensively in order to manufacture vegan shoes. EVA is the abbreviation for plastic created by combining ethylene and vinyl acetate. Collectively, they produce a substance that can be utilized to make the soles of EVA sneakers. Moreover, since it can be easily recycled into new items (playgrounds, mats, and more), it is regarded as an environmentally beneficial material due to the fact that it doesn't utilize chlorine in its production process.
  • Rise in the Application of Ethylene Vinyl in the Packaging Sector: The EVA market is increasing as a result of the rising demand from the packaging sector. Due to greater internet purchases made amid the COVID crisis, the packaging industry has noticed an increase in demand for ethylene-vinyl acetate. The most common polymer used in hot melt adhesives for packing purposes is ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA). EVA packaging has strong thermal insulation, anti-vibration, water resistance, and corrosion resistance, and it is also simple to manufacture. They are primarily utilized by customers and have gained popularity since they are durable, recyclable, and attractive.


  • Negative Properties of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate - Unfortunately, the disadvantages of EVA are currently felt by an increasing number of businesses. Despite being a wear-resistant material, EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) can emit corrosive breakdown products when processing temperatures are too high. Hence, the market demand is set to restrain.
  • Sensitive to Heat
  • Stringent Environment Regulations

Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Segmentation

Type (Low Density, Medium Density, High Density)

The high-density segment in the ethylene vinyl acetate market is expected to garner share of approximately 70% over the projected period. Compared to low and medium-density ethylene vinyl acetate, high-density ethylene vinyl acetate tends to be more affordable and has greater chemical resistance, durability to lower temperatures, and UV resistance. Additionally, high-density EVA is frequently utilized for the manufacture of building supplies including cement renders, adhesives, sealants, protective coatings, and plasters. As a result, these variables highly favor an increase in their demand in the years to come.

Application (Solar Cell Encapsulation, Film Manufacturing, Wire & Cable, Adhesives & Sealants, Coatings, Plasters & Cement Renders)

Ethylene vinyl acetate market from the solar cell encapsulation segment is expected to generate a share of 30% by the end of 2035. The procedure of encapsulating solar panels utilizes ethylene vinyl acetate resins; as a consequence, a predicted rise in the number of solar energy plants worldwide will fuel the demand for solar cell encapsulation. Ethylene vinyl acetate resins are employed as encapsulation materials since they are elastic as well as have strong light transmission. These components are anticipated to support this subsegment's growth during the projection period.
