The EU acrylic polymer industry has been maintaining record levels of magnitude of international trade over the past 10 years. Since the post-crisis recovery in 2012, total exports on the acrylic polymer market have leveled off at their highest values, amountinig to 5,714 million USD in 2015. Data concerning the EU trade with non-EU countries shows that the EU remains a net exporter of acrylic polymers.

Total EU Exports Of Acrylic Polymers

Germany, France, Belgium, and the Netherlands were the main suppliers of acrylic polymers among the EU members, with a combined share of 77% of total exports in 2015. France (+2.7% per year) and the Netherlands (+1.6% per year) were the fastest growing suppliers from 2007 to 2015. Moreover, these countries strengthened their positions in the European exports, while the other leaders saw their shares reduced.

The major share of trade for acrylic polymers was conducted between the EU Member States, while the extra-EU exports have taken up about 34% of total exports. In 2015, the extra-EU exports for acrylic polymers reached 1,921 million USD, which was 5% more than the year before.

Since extra-EU exports account for about 36% of total EU acrylic polymer output, EU acrylic polymer industry remains sensitive to demand from overseas consumers. Rising deliveries abroad provide significant support to the restoration of EU acrylic polymer manufacturing. For many years, the U.S. and China were the main foreign markets. Shipments to these countries have traditionally taken up more than 20% of extra-EU exports.
