The India Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) market volume reached 170 thousand tonnes in FY2022 and is anticipated to further grow at a steady CAGR of 4.45% during the forecast period until FY2030. Adhesives is the major application of VAM in the nation, and in the years to come, the adhesive industry will be the main factor driving up demand for VAM.
Vinyl Acetate Monomer is a colorless liquid having a pungent odor. It is a key raw material in the production of chemicals which are further used for manufacturing a wide variety of consumer and industrial products. Vinyl Acetate Monomer is a versatile chemical employed for manufacturing a variety of resins and polymers for paints & coatings, glue, adhesives and sealants, synthetic rubber, fabric finishes, paper products, binder, coatings, and a wide range of other industrial and consumer applications. VAM can be employed in a variety of copolymers and terpolymers, including vinyl-acrylic resins, vinyl acetate-acrylic acid copolymers, and vinyl acetate-vinyl chloride copolymers. It effectively homo-polymerizes to polyvinyl acetate (PVA).
Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) market is primary driven by its usage as a feedstock to manufacture chemicals like polyvinyl alcohol, ethylene vinyl acetate, polyvinyl acetate, vinyl acetate-ethylene, ethylene vinyl alcohol, and others. Additionally, polyvinyl alcohol is used to make adhesives, coatings, and water-soluble packing films, whereas polyvinyl acetals are used to make coatings, primer for washing, interlayers for safety glass, and insulation for magnetic wire. With rapid industrialization in India, the demand for paints & coating, sealants, and building and construction materials are anticipated to rise which will most likely fasten the VAM market expansion in the forecast period. Owing to these reasons, the Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) market is estimated to reach approximately 240 thousand tonnes by FY2030.
Based on the region, the Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) market is segmented into West, South, North, and South. In the historic period of FY2015-FY2021, West India has been a market leader, accounting for 37% of Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) consumption in FY2022. Owing to the presence of majority of the adhesive manufacturers, like Pidilite Industries, located in this region coupled with the location of ports in Western states like Gujarat and Maharashtra, the demand of VAM is anticipated to further grow in the forecasted period till FY2030. As of FY2023, the demand of VAM in India are met via import. Due to the greater cost of production and cheaper imports accessible from the international market, neither a new player nor an established player has announced to enter the VAM market.
Based on end-use, the India Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) market is segregated into Adhesive, Textile, Chemical Intermediates, and Others. The Adhesive sector captures the majority of the VAM market roughly 73 percent share by volume in FY2022, followed by Textile and Chemical Intermediates industries. VAM is extensively employed to manufacture polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH) and polyvinyl acetate (PVA). Adhesives made of polyvinyl acetate are inexpensive, simple to use, and have a wide range of applications. PVA is most well-known for serving as the primary ingredient of home white glue, which is used to bind papers, fabrics, woodwork, and plastics.
Major exporting companies contributing to the Vinyl Acetate Monomer demand are Celanese, Sipchem, CCD Singapore Pte Ltd., Helm Asia Pte Ltd., ICC Chemical Corporation, and Others.
