The market for vinyl acetate monomers is expected to reach $13.9 billion by the end of 2032, growing at a 4.7% CAGR from its current value of $8.8 billion in 2022. The vinyl acetate monomers market refers to the global industry that manufactures and sells vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), an organic compound that is primarily used as a raw material in the manufacture of polyvinyl acetate (PVA) and other copolymers. VAM is used in a variety of industries, including adhesives, paints and coatings, textiles, and others.
The growing demand for VAM in various end-use industries, particularly in the construction and automotive sectors, is driving the market. The construction industry's expansion, particularly in emerging economies, is expected to drive demand for VAM in the coming years. Furthermore, the growing demand for environmentally friendly and sustainable products is expected to open up new opportunities in the VAM market.

Why is Demand for Polyvinyl Acetate Rapidly Increasing?
Applications like polyvinyl alcohol, polyvinyl acetate-ethylene vinyl alcohol, ethylene vinyl acetate, etc. use vinyl acetate monomers. These have numerous applications in end-use industries like building, packaging, textiles, and cosmetics. The market for vinyl acetate monomers worldwide is dominated by polyvinyl acetate monomers, which account for the largest share of these applications.
Because of its high chemical thermal stability and low price, polyvinyl acetate is a good choice for the paper, packaging, and construction industries. Microorganisms are unable to attack polyvinyl acetate. Due to this characteristic, casein and hide-based natural adhesives have been replaced by polyvinyl acetate.
