Redispersible polymer powder is a polymer emulsion of monomers, such as vinyl acetate, vinyl versatate, ethylene, acrylate, and styrene butadiene. It is produced by a series of processes, namely spray drying and surface treatment to powdered thermoplastic resin materials. The product is majorly used in the construction industry for enhancing key properties of cement-based formulations.
According to MRFR analysis, the global redispersible polymer powder market is projected to register a significant growth during the forecast period. The increasing investments in residential as well as commercial infrastructure are likely to favor the growth of the market. As a result, the rising per capita income in the emerging economies is expected to fuel the growth of the global market. Moreover, the growing demand for the product in tiling & flooring applications in the construction industry is further expected to propel the market growth during the review period.
On the basis of application, the tiling & flooring segment held the largest market share in 2016 and is anticipated to continue its dominance during the forecast period. The tiling & flooring segment was valued at USD 533.8 million in 2016 and is expected to register a CAGR of 7.24% during the assessment period. The mortars segment held the second largest market share in 2016. However, the insulation system segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 7.28%. Based on type, the acrylic segment is expected to be the leading segment in the global market. While the vinyl acetate-ethylene segment is expected to witness the highest growth at a CAGR of 7.50%. Acrylic redispersible polymer powder is widely used in the production of grouts, joint fillers, and cementitious tile adhesives. The product exhibits superior properties such as enhanced hydrolysis resistance, chemical stability, and water resistance making it suitable in the applications above.
As per the MRFR analysis, the global redispersible polymer powder market is projected to reach USD 2,378.2 million by the end of 2023 and is expected to register a CAGR of 6.66% during the review period.
