Emulsion Polymers are obtained by emulsifying (polymerizing) specific monomers with the help of a surfactant (or an emulsifier) to obtain their polymers, such as an oil-water emulsion. They find application in industries such as paintings and coatings, adhesives, paper and paperboard coatings and others. Emulsion Polymerizing is a speedy, yet controlled process whose products (emulsion polymers) can usually be used without much of an alteration.
Emulsion Polymers can be broadly classified as synthetic rubber, plastics and dispersions. Within these categories some of the more common ones are as synthetic rubber - certain grades of styrene-butadiene and polybutadiene; plastics - PVC, polystyrene, PTFE and dispersions - polyvinyl acetate, latex acrylic paint.
Acrylic and paints & coatings are the major components of the the emulsion polymer market. Increased demand of paints and adhesives and the growing global economy are the major forces behind the booming market of emulsion polymers. But still there are some constraints in the growth of this market. One of the major constraints in the growth of emulsion polymers market is the high cost of raw materials, but intensive research in this areas and increased availability of raw material is now also helping in reducing the cost of raw materials, thus promoting further growth and expansion of this market.
China & India lead the emulsion polymers market followed by North-America and Western Europe. The key players in this market include Akzo Nobel N.V, Arkema S.A, DIC Corporation, The Dow Chemical Company, Wacker Chemie A.G.
