Vinyl acetate ethylene emulsions are manufactured through the copolymerization of vinyl acetate and ethylene, where content of vinyl acetate can range between 60 to 90% and content of ethylene can range between 10 to 40%. Moreover, VAE emulsions generally have water as their main component.

The market is segmented by application into paints & coatings, sealants, re-dispersible powders, textiles and nonwoven, and others, out of which, the paints & coatings segment is anticipated to hold a substantial share in the global vinyl acetate-ethylene (VAE) emulsions market over the forecast period on account of growing use of paints in the automotive and construction industries. Moreover, growing demand for water-based paints amongst the consumers, is anticipated to boost the segment growth.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Chemicals (% of Value Added in Manufacturing) – 2016-2018

The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favourable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labour as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.

Global Vinyl Acetate-Ethylene (VAE) Emulsions Market Regional Synopsis

Geographically, the global vinyl acetate-ethylene (VAE) emulsions market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa region. The market in Asia Pacific region is estimated to witness modest growth over the forecast period on the back of blooming chemical manufacturing industry in the region. For instance, the chemical industry in Asia accounted for more than 55% share of the revenue generated by the global chemical industry. Furthermore, growing construction industry in China, India, and other developing countries in the APAC region is also expected to fuel the market growth.

The market in the North America region is anticipated to gain the largest market share throughout the forecast period owing to the increasing consumption of paint and coating amongst the growing automotive and construction industry. For instance, the U.S. construction sector generated a revenue of around USD 1.3 trillion in 2020.
