Format: Online | Last Updated: Nov 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) demand stood at 3.84 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 6.09 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 4.84% until 2030. Ethylene Vinyl Acetate is a copolymer of vinyl acetate and ethylene. The content of vinyl acetate varies from 10 to 40 percent of the formulation. Ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) is an elastomeric copolymer that has the properties of rubber. This polymer exhibits the properties of low-temperature toughness, resistance to UV radiation, stress-crack resistance, and high flexibility. It acts as an alternative to rubber and vinyl polymers in various applications. Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) is available in a variety of grades depending on the application and end-user industry. Below 18% VA, 18% VA and 28% VA, and above 28% are the four broad categories on which the EVA can be segmented depending on the VA content. The applications of EVA depend on the grade. The major applications of Ethylene vinyl acetate are Solar Cell Encapsulation, Adhesives, Film, Foam and Wires, and Cables, and others.
Besides, there are a wide variety of applications of Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) as foams in footwear, hockey pads, martial art gloves, and other sports goods due to its shock absorber property. Many footwear companies are advertising EVA-based compression-molded foam to manufacture shoes and floats. The demand for Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) in the footwear industry is expected to increase in the forecast years. EVA slippers, shoes and sandals are gaining popularity as it is lightweight, odorless and cheaper than its alternatives.
The demand in the adhesive industry has seen growth due to the high demand in packaging, textile, coated paper, and bookbinding films. With the rising awareness about renewable energy resources, the demand for Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) in Solar Energy generation has increased. Ethylene vinyl acetate is used for the manufacturing of solar cells in the process of encapsulation. EVA is used as an encapsulation material for crystalline silicon solar cells in the manufacture of photovoltaic modules. The manufacturers supply EVA to solar panel manufacturers which are used to produce solar cell modules etc. As the demand for solar power systems has been increasing and is expected to increase in the forecast years, the demand for Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) in Renewable Energy Industry is expected to increase in the forecast years. High VA content EVA is used in this application. Several manufacturers reported better capacity utilization and a strong boost in demand for EVA from the footwear and packaging applications. With the growth of e-commerce during the COVID-19 pandemic, the packaging industry experiences an accelerated growth, which positively impacted the EVA market.
Some of the major players operating in the global Ethylene Vinyl Acetate market are Braskem, Celanese, Dairen Chemical, Dow, Dupont-Mitsui Polychemicals, ENI Versalis S.p.A., ExxonMobile, Formosa Plastic Corporation, etc. Looking at the vast market potential, players are coming up with capacity expansion plans and heavily investing in advanced technologies to expand their current product portfolios.
