[Online Quarterly Update] Vinyl Acetate Monomer demand stood at 5.2 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 9.097 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 5.75% until 2030.
Vinyl Acetate Monomer is a colorless organic monomer. It is produced by the acetylation of ethylene with acetic acid and oxygen. It finds application in the manufacturing of several chemicals including polyvinyl alcohol, polyvinyl acetate, ethylene vinyl acetate, ethylene vinyl alcohol. Out of these, the polyvinyl acetate segment holds the highest share of global demand for Vinyl Acetate Monomer   . Vinyl Acetate Monomer has several properties like adhesion, optical clarity, fiber forming, etc. Due to these properties, it has several end-use industries including packaging, construction, textile, and cosmetics. Increasing demand for packaging and construction along with the rise in the demand from other end-use industries such as textile and cosmetics is projected to drive the demand for Vinyl Acetate Monomer during the forecast period. Moreover, the increasing need for adhesive from the construction industry is also a factor propelling the demand for Vinyl Acetate Monomer   . 
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns which had an impact on a number of industries. Construction and Textile were among the most affected industries during the pandemic. This had an impact on the demand for Vinyl Acetate Monomer for the first half of 2020. However, a surge in the demand for Vinyl Acetate Monomer from the packaging industry was witnessed due to the growth in e-commerce amid the pandemics. Additionally, since the latter half of 2020, the Vinyl Acetate market has been recovered with the recovery of the end use industries and is anticipated to flourish in the forecast period.
Region-wise, Asia-Pacific region holds the major share of global demand for Vinyl Acetate Monomer  due to the increasing demand for construction and packaging. Moreover, increasing population and per capita income in emerging economies like India and China coupled with the growing number of industries using Vinyl Acetate Monomer is another factor influencing demand growth in the Asia Pacific region.
