Market study firmly establishes a growing demand in India for VAM, which has been increasing at an annual rate of 9.8% from fiscal year 2008-09 to 2016-17 and in the future, will increase at a decent rate from fiscal year 2016-17 to 2021-22.

But on the flip side production and capacity of VAM have slumped in India. 100% of domestic VAM demand is met through imports. The largest derivative, Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) accounts for 34% of Acetic Acid consumption.

Major demand for VAM in India is for the production of adhesives and coating formulation. The end use industry of VAM in the country is expected to grow rapidly in view of the overall economic and industrial development. The western region of the country is the largest hub of VAM consumption, accounting for more than half of domestic VAM consumption. Other regions of the country share similar VAM requirements, which are however, expected to increase in the future.

VAM in India is a lucrative market as the entire Indian demand of VAM is met through imports. There is currently no production of VAM in India, as Jubilant Organosys Limited and Vinyl Chemicals Limited have halted its VAM manufacturing as it was more viable to import VAM rather than manufacturing it in-house. Singapore is a major source of import and has more than half the share in the total quantity of VAM imported by India.

In the Global front, growth in vinyl acetate consumption during the fiscal year 2016–21 will be driven by demand in China and the United States. Asia Pacific region is accounted for the growing demand of VAM, in which China is playing a crucial role. Due to the huge population in China and India, they pose a huge consumption potential for the global market.

The robust demand for adhesives from industries such as construction, furniture, and packaging are expected to drive the VAM market; Likewise, demand from industries such as coatings and paints for vinyl acetate copolymer is expected to drive the over the period of 2017 to 2023. The demand for more photovoltaic cells is expected to boost the growth of the market. Prospering shale gas industry is also expected to escalate the growth of the vinyl acetate monomer market, as ethylene vinyl acetate is used for increasing the output while drilling wider area.
