[Online Quarterly Update] The current installed capacity of Butyl Acrylate is around 4.8 million tonnes which is sufficient to meet its global demand until 2022 and the market is anticipated to witness a significant growth by reaching 6.5 million tonnes in 2035, growing at a CAGR of 4.91% in the next ten years. Top five key manufacturers alone account for around 60% of installed capacity of butyl acrylate, worldwide. The remaining capacities are highly fragmented with major suppliers in APAC region.
Butyl Acrylate is a well-known form of acrylic esters, synthesised via esterification reaction between acrylic acid and n-butanol. It is applicable in wide range of end use sectors owing to its hardness, high strength, and high temperature resistance property. The demand for Butyl Acrylate is significantly growing around the globe with rising focus on water-based coatings, increasing construction activities and its wide application in automotive industries.
Owing to its widespread application in paints, surface coatings, adhesives, and sealants in the construction and automotive industries, Butyl Acrylate demand is mostly determined by GDP. As a result, demand for Butyl Acrylate is likely to be high in developing countries, where GDP is expected to grow at a faster rate. There has been an increase in the use of Butyl Acrylate for a range of applications in recent years, and this trend is expected to continue in the coming years as well.
The market's growth is predicted to be aided by the adoption of sustainable and innovative production procedures, as well as increased demand in the downstream sector. Refurbishment and restoration activities, as well as construction plans, have increased as a result of improved infrastructure, greater disposable incomes, and changing lifestyles which in turn is fueling the growth of the market. 
Furthermore, increased industrialization in all developing countries, as well as rising demand and significant expansion in the automotive sector, have spurred growth in the paints and coatings business owing to wide application of Butyl Acrylate in coating application and refinish material. This is anticipated to benefit the worldwide Butyl Acrylate industry in the long run.
Geographically, the Butyl Acrylate market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is anticipated to account for the majority share in the market due to growing automotive and construction industries. More than 50% of global capacity is in China, the country has become the leading producer of Butyl Acrylate. In China, new Butyl Acrylate manufacturing plants has been established. Manufacturers have planned to expand their capacity due to the sudden increase in demand from end use sectors. For instance, Satellite Chemical Co Ltd, and Jiangsu Sanmu Group expanded their production capacity in 2019, also recently in 2021 Wanhua Chemical in China increased its production capacity.
The Butyl Acrylate market in North America is anticipated to expand at a considerable pace. Leading Butyl Acrylate manufacturers, BASF SE and Arkema S.A contribute to the major share of production in North America. Further, the surge in the need for water-based coatings, along with restrictions on VOC emission plastics is anticipated to further boost the growth of the butyl acrylate market in the region in the coming years. 
Based on end-uses, the market is segmented into acrylate copolymers, paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, and others. The others segment comprises of paper & pulp, textile, leather processing, etc.  In the forecast period it is anticipated that the butyl acrylate market will be driven by the paints and coatings segment. Due to its growing use in the construction and automotive industries, as well as an increase in the replacement of existing coatings with water-based paints and coatings, paints and coatings segment is projected to continue its dominance in the coming years. Butyl Acrylate possesses features like high hardness, endurance, and improved weatherability that make it a popular choice for automotive coating applications. The increased demand for pressure adhesive tapes used in packaging to replace traditional polymers such as PVC is due to the increased use of butyl acrylate in the manufacture of adhesives and sealants. In the near future, this is expected to elevate demand for Butyl Acrylate in adhesives and sealants.
In 2020, due to the sudden outbreak of COVID-19, the Butyl Acrylate market witnessed a negative impact around the globe. Several restrictions imposed due to pandemic hampered supply chain activities worldwide. Due to the deployment of lockdown by government authorities, production factories were compelled to shut down. As a result, manufacturers suffered significant financial losses, and many were forced to close their operations. Demand from many sectors, such as the automobile and textile industries, has severely decreased amid the pandemic. In 2021, the economy recovered, the market growth post-pandemic observed an upward trajectory due to the increased demand from the downstream industries.
Some of the major players operating in the Butyl Acrylate market are BASF SE, Arkema S.A, Dow Chemical Company, Nippon Shokubai Co., Ltd., TASNEE, Shanghai Huayi Group, Formosa Plastics Corporation, Satellite Chemical Co Ltd, Wanhua Chemical Group, LG Chem Ltd., and others.
Recently, Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited and Indian Oil Corporation have launched their project of Butyl Acrylate manufacturing facility in order to cater to the rising demand, maintain the demand supply gap of petrochemical products and reduce reliance on import of Butyl Acrylate in India.
