Emulsion Polymer Market Report Scope & Overview:

The Emulsion Polymer Market Size was valued at USD 49.56 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 78.39 billion by 2030, and grow at a CAGR of 5.9% over the forecast period 2023-2030. Because of the strong growth of the paints and coatings, adhesives, and paper and paperboard industries, the emulsion polymers market is booming. Emulsion polymers are made by polymerizing surfactants, monomers, and water. Emulsion polymers are classified as water borne solvents because the monomer is dissolved in water. Because of its low volatile organic compound (VOC) concentration, it can be used to substitute solvent-borne polymers.  It is widely employed in different end-user industries due to its high molecular weight and greater recyclability. The growing need for paints and coatings in the building and construction and automotive industries in emerging countries has stimulated the demand for emulsion polymers on a global scale to improve the quality of paints. Furthermore, as environmental concerns about solvent-borne polymers have grown, eco-friendly water-borne polymers made with emulsion polymers have taken their place. Because the product is made from crude oil and natural gas, fluctuating crude oil prices have hampered the expansion of the emulsion polymers market.

Impact of COVID-19:

COVID-19 has caused travel restrictions in practically all countries around the world. Since March 2020, the manufacturing industry has been halted due to an increasing number of infected patients and a total lockdown in major industrial hubs. Workers have either returned home or been isolated to prevent the coronavirus from spreading. Due to possible upstream supply chain concerns, construction, automotive, chemical, textile, and coatings companies have been forced to close locations. Consumer sentiment is negative, and earnings are declining, therefore demand for residential building development is projected to below. Due to unclear future prospects, demand for automobiles has dropped dramatically.

The global impact on textile orders for apparel and clothing accessories has decreased by 30% on average. Chemical companies have either ceased production or have a poor utilization rate. With the removal of the lockdown, government bodies around the world are progressively encouraging construction, automotive, chemical, and textile & coatings firms to begin work, and corporations are striving toward market recovery, with sales likely to improve gradually in 2021.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
