    Market Insights

    The silyl acrylate polymer market was estimated to grow from USD 2.66 billion in 2021 to USD 4.77 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of over 8.66% during the forecast period.

    Market Drivers

    The prime factor contributing to the demand for silyl acrylate polymers is the surging shipbuilding industry in Asia-Pacific countries especially China, Japan, and South Korea. Increasing maritime trade and favorable government initiative to offer significant growth opportunities.

    What is Silyl Acrylate Polymer (SAP)?

    Silyl acrylate polymer is used as antifouling coating which is categorized under self-polishing copolymer. It is produced from acrylic monomers, silyl ester, silanes, and acrylates. Biocides such as cuprous oxide, copper pyrithione, zinc oxide, and zinc pyrithione are also added to prevent building algae, barnacles, slime, and other invasive species. Silyl acrylate polymer protects from erosion and exhibits controlled release of biocides in sea water.

    Product Type

    The market is segmented as metal containing and metal free. Metal free held the larger share of the market in 2021 and is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period. It is also expected to register a higher growth during the same period. The metal free segment is free from elemental metal but contains metal in the form of biocides. It possesses features such as self-polishing and controlled release of metal biocides.

    Sector Type

    The market is segmented as new shipbuilding and repair & maintenance. New shipbuilding accounted for the larger share and is expected to drive the demand for silyl acrylate polymer (SAP) in the forecast period due to the growing shipbuilding sector in Asia-Pacific. Further, growing production of bulk carriers and increasing trend of containerization of marine vessels to drive the silyl acrylate polymer (SAP) market. Silyl acrylate polymer is used as eco-friendly antifoulant which offers controlled release of biocides.

    Application Type

    The market is segmented as coastal, containers, deep sea, leisure boats, offshore vessels, and others. The coastal segment is expected to dominate the silyl acrylate polymer (SAP) market over the forecast period. Coastal ships comprise cargo vessel, trading ships which experience longer stay in warm water resulting in accumulation of unwanted biological hull fouling. Silyl acrylate polymer enhances fuel efficiency without losing speed.

    Region Analysis

    Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the largest as well as the fastest-growing silyl acrylate polymer (SAP) market during the forecast period, with China, Japan and South Korea being the major countries with robust shipbuilding and drydocking activities. The growth of the market is associated with low labor cost, favorable govt spending, and growing marine trade activities in the region. North America and Europe are also expected to offer substantial growth opportunities during the forecast period.
