Vinyl Acetate Monomer, commonly referred to as VAM, is used to make Polyvinyl Acetate (PVA), a polymer widely used for making emulsion (latex) products â€â€Å" interior and exterior paints, adhesives, paper coatings, and textile treatments. Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVOH), Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) polymers, Ethylene Vinyl Alcohol (EVOH) resins and Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB) are other major end-uses of VAM.

The market study firmly establishes a growing demand in India for VAM, which has been increasing over the years, but in a non continuous manner. VAM demand is met through imports. The largest derivative Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) accounts for 34% of Acetic Acid consumption. VAM is used in adhesives, textiles, paints and paper. Its growth is keeping pace with GDP growth. Major portion of 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 approximate 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 halted its VAM manufacturing in 2009. However, this is set to change with the entry of new players in this field. Singapore is the major source of import and has more than half share in total quantity of VAM imported by India. Taiwan followed by Iran, USA and Belgium account for the rest.

Asia Pacific region is accounted for growing demand of VAM, of which China is playing a crucial role. Due to huge population in China and India they pose a huge consumption potential with major end use application of VAM there being, Polyvinyl Acetate (PVAc), and Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA). Several new VAM production projects are scheduled in the near future which will help in procuring the emerging global demand of VAM. However, demand for vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) exceeds its supply by around one million tones, which causes hike in global VAM prices significantly.
