Acrylonitrile Market Research
Acrylonitrile (ACN) is used mainly as a monomer or comonomer in the production of synthetic fibres, plastics and elastomers. Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS)/styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN) market is the main growth sector for ACN.
Acrylonitrile is used to produce adiponitrile, which is an intermediate in the manufacture of nylon 6,6 polymers. The nylon fibres market is mature with little growth but nylon engineering polymers are performing much better.
Research indicates that in 2008 the worldwide Acrylonitrile market totaled 4,531,000 million tons. Approximately 52% of the total EU production of acrylonitrile is used in production of fibres, 15% in production of ABS and SAN resins, 15% in the production of acrylamide and adipronitrile and 18% for other uses. The future of the Acrylonitrile sector seems optimistic.
