Acrolein with the formula (C3H4O), also known as acrylaldehyde or propenal, is clear, yellowish liquid, which is highly flammable, toxic, and soluble in water. It is produced commercially by oxidizing propene in the presence of air and metal oxides that are used as heterogeneous catalysts. It is also manufactured from petrochemical feedstocks such as propylene and glycerin. Presently, acrolein is utilized in adhesives, coatings, polishes, elastic rubber, plastic, medical materials, and super absorbent polymers in diapers and across plastic and paint industries across the globe.
The market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for acrolein from plastic, agrochemicals, and polymer industries. In addition, acrolein is widely used in the production of acrylic acid to control algae and plant growth and kill bacteria and microorganisms in water treatment plants and oil wells. It is also used as a disinfectant that controls weeds, mollusks, fungi, and rodents. Moreover, acrolein is utilized in slimicide solutions in paper making industry as it prevents the formation of slime during the paper-making process. This, coupled with the rising product adoption in test gases for gas masks, military poison gases, and warning gases for refrigerant systems due to its odor, which serves as a warning when a line breaks, represents another major growth-inducing factor. Additionally, acrylic acid polymers are widely used in the preparation of emulsifiers, coatings, and adhesives and as a super-absorbing agent in diapers and hygienic pads, which is positively influencing the market growth. Apart from this, various key market players are taking sustainable approaches to cope with the problem of reducing crude oil sources, which is anticipated to propel market growth. Furthermore, bio-based glycerol is gaining popularity for being used as substitute feedstock for manufacturing acrolein and reducing the dependency on natural resources, which is also creating a positive market outlook across the globe.
