A recent research report published by Transparency Market Research anticipates the global ethylene vinyl acetate market to expand at a CAGR of 5.1% during the period between 2015 and 2023. The report, titled “Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023,” projects the global ethylene vinyl acetate market to reach a valuation of US$11.41 bn by 2023. The overall market was worth US$7.29 bn in 2014.
Chemically, ethylene vinyl acetate, better known as EVA, is a co-polymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate monomer where the weight percentage of vinyl acetate ranges between 1% and 40%. Ethylene vinyl acetate has excellent properties such as adhesive strength, elasticity, toughness, flexibility, and impact strength. The chemical compound offers resistance to environmental stress cracks, puncture, and UV radiation. It is widely used for various applications including photovoltaic cells, films, foams, hot melt adhesives, and wires and cables.
The report states that the growth in the flexible packaging films market has propelled the demand for ethylene vinyl acetate. However, the global ethylene vinyl acetate market is expected to be negatively affected by volatility in raw material prices and the availability of substitute compounds. The overall market has a huge opportunity to grow with the rapid expansion of the photovoltaic cell industry.
On the basis of product type, the report segments the global ethylene vinyl acetate market into high EVA, low EVA, and very low EVA. In 2014, low EVA dominated the market due to its extensive applications in foams and films. However, during the forecast period, high EVA is anticipated to be the fastest growing product segment.
The report studies the global ethylene vinyl acetate market across some of the key regions such as Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America. In 2014, in terms of volume, Asia Pacific dominated the overall market with over a share of over 35%. During the forecast horizon, the region is anticipated to witness the fastest growth due to the growing demand from countries such as India, Japan, and China.
