Acrylic Acid - Category Spend Analysis

According to procurement analysts at SpendEdge, one of the key growth contributors for the global acrylic acid market is the increase in demand for acrylate esters and superabsorbent polymers. Superabsorbent polymers are used to absorb water and other aqueous solutions in end-use applications such as diapers, female hygiene products, and adult incontinence products. Additionally, the wide-ranging applications of acrylate esters in end-use industries such as surface coatings, paints, detergents, textiles, and plastics are driving this market.

 

Acrylic Acid - Procurement Best Practices

Buyers must engage with suppliers with nearshore production or distribution facilities. This will help buyers save on logistics costs. A key strategy adopted by procurement managers in this market space is to select suppliers with near-shore facilities.

 

Acrylic Acid - Procurement Challenges

A major procurement pain point experienced by the buyers is the difficulty in identifying suppliers that provide cost-effective transportation and storage facilities. SpendEdge’s procurement specialists predict that the buyers must engage with suppliers that have in-house transportation and storage capabilities to counter this specific procurement pain point.
