Growing demand for laundry detergent is propelling the market growth

Polymers have been used in detergent applications for the last few decades owing to benefits such as anti-encrustation, anti-soil redeposition, stain and soil removal and dispersion, a replacement for sodium tripolyphosphate, and removal of insoluble fillers. The primary function of acrylic polymers is to act as builders and anti-soil redeposition agents. Thus, such polymers have been substituted for conventionally utilized phosphate builders in a detergent formulation that are harmful to the environment. In addition, acrylic polymers provide good fabric softening and dispersion properties, which are commonly used in laundry detergents. These factors have created the demand for acrylic polymer in the laundry detergent industry.  

Within the report, the market is segmented into type, application, and geography. By type, the market is further segmented into water borne and solvent borne. Based on the application, the market is divided into laundry & detergent, dish washing, industrial & institutional, hard surface cleaning, and others. Geographically, the market is subsegmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa.

Rising demand for acrylic polymer from industrial and institutional cleaning applications

An acrylic polymer is any of a class of polymers made from acrylate monomers. These plastics are known for their strength, transparency,  and elasticity. Acrylic polymer is a strong, stiff, transparent plastic that comes in various colors and finishes. They are an excellent substitute for glass, and it is used in windowpanes, bullet-proof glass, construction, greenhouse roofs, paints, communication devices, and machine parts, among others. The products and solutions provided by the manufacturers in the acrylic polymer market find significant applications as ingredients for cleaning products and solutions.  


Rising adoption in various industries is one of the major factors accelerating market growth

Acrylic polymers are versatile materials extensively used and preferred for their various mechanical and physical properties. The manufacturers and players in the acrylic polymer market offer two major types of products and solutions: solvent-borne and water-borne products. In the automobile industry, this material is used to manufacture lighting parts, whiteboards, and screens and to produce components and parts for vehicle exteriors. Moreover, this material is used extensively in coatings for technical textile yarns in the textile industry. Some major applications for the products and solutions in the global acrylic polymer market include hard surface cleaning, dishwashing, laundry and detergent, and industrial and institutional, among others.
