Polymer dispersions are water-borne emulsion polymers with colloidal particles in a stabilized state. Polymer dispersions are used in various applications in different industry verticals such as inks, adhesives, paints, coatings, papers, adhesives, sealants, and decorative and protective coating. The factors that are augmenting the market growth include increasing demand from the leather industry as polymer dispersion is used in the manufacturing of leather and adhesives. Their demand has additionally increased due to the increasing market of the decorative coating as the interior industry has started flourishing. This is due to the increasing disposable income of people that have led consumers to invest in the interiors of their household. In addition, the government regulations have augmented the demand for green coatings spurring the growth of the polymer dispersion market. The government is stressing over reducing high volatile compound emissions in the environment, thereby fuelling the market for water-based polymer dispersion particularly in food packaging and flexible packaging applications. This is due to the reason that they are eco-friendly.

North America is one of the major markets for the polymer dispersion market in 2017. The major factors for this significant growth include the increasing demand for decorative furniture coatings in the region. The market in Europe will grow significantly owing to the increasing concerns about environmental conservation. The European polymer dispersion and latex association (EPDLA) has laid crucial guidelines for using polymer dispersion safely, leading to a significant reduction in the release of organic solvents into the environment.

The companies contributing towards the growth of the polymer dispersion market include BASF SE, Evonik Industries AG, IKERLAT Polymers S.L, The Dow Chemical Company, Synthomer, Polymerics, Inc., Solvay Group, Michelman, Vinavil S.p.A., and Covestro AG.
