The Growing Construction Industry Projected To Boost The Growth Of Methyl Methacrylate Market

The global Methyl Methacrylate Market is estimated to be valued at Us$ 8264.78 Mn or in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR Of 4.9% over the forecast period 2023 To 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:

Methyl methacrylate, also known as MMA, is a transparent thermoplastic monomer used in the manufacturing of Plexiglas and other acrylic sheet products. It is a clear, colorless liquid that provides excellent resistance to impact loading, weathering, and various chemicals. MMA monomers are used to produce polymethyl methacrylate plastics through polymerization. These acrylic plastics are commonly used in construction industries for making windows, doors, light fixtures and translucent to transparent wall barriers. It is also used in automotive industry to manufacture headlights, taillights, rear-view mirrors and other interior parts that require heat resistance and transparency.

Market key trends:

One of the major trends fueling the growth of methyl methacrylate market is increasing construction activities around the world especially in emerging economies. There is a growing demand for lightweight and durable construction materials to develop energy efficient building structures. Methyl methacrylate based plastics provide excellent transparency, weather resistance and insulation properties making them suitable for various construction applications. Another key trend is rising automotive production across major countries to cater to the increasing demand for private vehicles. This is positively impacting the adoption of methyl methacrylate monomers and polymers in automotive industries. Ongoing technological advancements to develop improved MMA based materials with higher strength and temperature resistance properties is also expected to support market growth over the forecast period.
