Market Analysis

The global glycidyl methacrylate market is expected to experience a stunning growth over the predicted years (2020-2027). Glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) simply put, is an ester of both methacrylic acid as well as glycidol. This is a common monomer that is utilized in producing epoxy resins. Being a dual functionality, high purity monomer, GMA is ideally suited for resin and coating applications. Along with other forms of vinyl monomers, glycidyl methacrylate allows copolymerization functionality in both aqueous and non-aqueous solutions, thereby making it immensely useful in the packaging industry. Besides, it finds application in plastic modifiers as well such as PVC, PET and also rubber and engineering thermoplastics. Owing to its enhanced mechanical properties and superior performance, GMA is also used in waterborne coatings resins, electrical laminates and adhesives. Above all, it helps to augment the final product’s structural properties.
