Methacrylate Copolymer Market: Overview

Methacrylate copolymers, also known as methacrylic acid copolymers, is a class of acrylate polymers. They are used as excipients in the pharmaceutical industry. They are also employed as food additives and glazing agents or coating agents in food supplements or solid foods. Methacrylate copolymers are also used in cosmetics due to their properties such as high moisture protection and masking of taste. Additionally, they are employed as thickeners in personal care products such as hair and skin care formulations. Methacrylate copolymers are used as fillers and diluents in order to improve the taste of the formulation of solid oral drugs.

Methacrylate Copolymer Market: Trends & Demands

Rise in demand for methacrylate copolymers in drug formulations, typically in the pharmaceutical industry, is driving the global methacrylate copolymers market. Additionally, increase in demand for solid food supplements for infants is expected to boost the demand for methacrylate copolymers during the forecast period. High production cost and shortage of raw materials are estimated to restrain the market during the forecast period. However, production capacity expansion for methacrylate copolymers is projected to augment the sales of methacrylate copolymers during the forecast period. For instance, in 2018, Evonik Industries announced plans to construct an additional line for the production of its ACRYLITE trademarked PMMA at its site in Osceola, Arkansas, the U.S. The new production line is likely to become operational in the first quarter of 2019. This is expected to double the company’s production capacity for methacrylate copolymers.
