Acrylic acid & esters is the general term for acrylic acid (AA) and acrylic esters (AE). In 2007-2011, global capacity of both crude acrylic acid (CAA) and common acrylic esters (CAE), inclusive of methyl acrylate (MA), ethyl acrylate (EA), butyl acrylate (BA),ethyl hexyl acrylate (EHA),etc., presented an upward trend, with compound growth rates of 2.03% and 3.39%, respectively.
As of end-2011, global capacity of CAA and CAE reached 5.32 million t/a and 4.776 million t/a, mainly distributed in the United States, Europe, Japan and China, which accounted for a total of 88.42% and 81.4%, respectively. In 2011, the global acrylic acid consumption amounted to 5.21 million tons, of which, that used for producing super absorbent polymer (SAP), paints & coatings, adhesives occupied 63%.
The acrylic acid & esters industry is characterized by a relatively high concentration. In 2011, CAA and CAE capacity of the world's top ten producers held a global share of 91.4% and 84.8% respectively. Among the top 10 companies, three are located in China: Jiangsu Jurong Chemical (foreign-controlled), Shanghai Huayi Acrylic Acid and Zhejiang Satellite Petro Chemical. Also in 2011, Jiangsu Jurong Chemical, relying on the production capacity of 365,000 t/a CAA and 350,000 t/a CAE, ranked first among Chinese acrylic acid & esters manufacturers, followed by Shanghai Huayi Acrylic Acid.
In China, the acrylic acid & esters industry has seen rapid development in recent years, with basic self-sufficiency, but accompanied by fierce competition among manufacturers. From 2007 to 2011, CAA production rose from 697,000 tons to 1.165 million tons, with a CAGR of 13.7%; CAE production climbed from 732,000 tons to 1.163 million tons, with a CAGR of 12.3%. Furthermore, major producers have been continuously expanding their capacity.
