Market Overview

The global Acrylonitrile market is estimated to be USD 9,533 million in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 10,411 million by 2026, with a CAGR of 1.27% during the forecast period.

The increase in demand for bio-based polymers is one of the major trends that will gain traction in the acrylonitrile market in the coming years. With the growing environmental concerns about the use of synthetic plastic that is mostly derived from petroleum, there is an increased need to develop eco-friendly plastics for consumers. This will increase the demand for bio-based products and manufacturers will start focusing on producing bio-based ABS to reduce the dependence on petroleum-based ABS. On the other hand, acrylonitrile is a harmful chemical material and regulated as throughout most of the world, also the instability in prices of raw materials such as polypropylene and changing the preference of users towards organic chemicals is expected to hamper the global acrylonitrile market growth in the forecast period. 

Acrylonitrile is an organic compound with the formula CH2CHCN. It is a colorless volatile liquid, although commercial samples can be yellow due to impurities. In terms of its molecular structure, it consists of a vinyl group linked to a nitrile. It is an important monomer for the manufacture of useful plastics such as polyacrylonitrile. It is reactive and toxic at low doses.
