Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) - the biggest and Ester solvents (ethyl acetate & butyl acetate) - the fastest growing acetic acid derivative markets

Acetic acid is the main feedstock to manufacture vinyl acetate monomer, which was at the forefront in terms of volumetric consumption in 2012. It is mainly driven by the growing demand of polyvinyl acetates and vinyl alcohols, which in turn are accelerating the demand for acetic acid.

The demand from the PTA manufacturing segment is estimated to grow at a very high pace, next only to ester solvents, which is the strongest growth segment of acetic acid. The growing textile and packaging industry is the key driver behind strong growth of PTA; while budding coatings consumption is pushing the demand of ester solvents at a notable pace.
