Based on application, the report categorizes the global vinyl acetate market into the following segments:

  • Polyvinyl acetate (PVA)
  • Polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH)
  • Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA)
  • Others

The top three revenue-generating application segments in the global vinyl acetate market are discussed below:

Polyvinyl acetate (PVA)

"Polyvinyl acetate forms the largest application segment of the global vinyl acetate market, responsible for generating over 45% of the overall revenue. The water emulsions of polyvinyl acetate are commonly used in paints and adhesives, construction, paper, cloth, and wood applications," says Ajay Adikari, a lead analyst at Technavio for plastics, polymers, and elastomers research.

PVA is widely adopted in adhesive applications due to their low cost and resistance against biodegradation. It is also used in sealants, hot melt adhesives (PVA glue), plastic, wood, coatings, and inks. The PVA market segment is projected to grow at a moderate pace over the forecast period.

Polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH)

Polyvinyl alcohol is a water-soluble, colorless synthetic polymer compound. PVOH compounds are used predominantly in the paper industry to provide resistance against oil and grease. It is also used in the food industry and pharmaceutical industry due to its coating and binding properties. PVOH is needed in the production of polyvinyl butyral resin, which is a polymer that possesses durable toughness, clarity, and adhesion properties. The polyvinyl alcohol segment of the vinyl acetate market is expected to grow at a moderate rate over the forecast period, estimated to generate USD 3,275.5 million by 2021.

Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA)

"EVA finds applications in diverse industries such as adhesives, sealants, biomedical, solar, sports, and packaging. It is a transparent, low-temperature flexible compound exhibiting high friction coefficient and good chemical resistance properties," says Ajay.

EVA is mainly used in the biomedical industry for drug delivery, due to its non-biodegradable property. It is also used in various sports equipment such as bicycle seats, ski boots, and hockey pads; and in manufacturing sandals, shoes, and slippers.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio's research analysts in this report are:

  • Celanese Corporation
