Development and prospect of redispersible latex powder market in China

Time:2020-12-08 09:18

The redispersible latex powder is water-soluble redispersible powder, which is a copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate, and polyvinyl alcohol is used as protective colloid. By adding redispersible latex powder, the performance of mortar based on cement or gypsum can meet the needs of various construction buildings. As redispersible latex powder has high bonding ability and unique properties, such as water resistance, workability and heat insulation, it is widely used.

In recent years, the demand for redispersible latex powder in Europe and North America has increased slowly due to market saturation. On the contrary, with the gradual implementation of building energy-saving policies in China and the vigorous promotion of dry-mixed mortar for buildings, the use of redispersible latex powder in Chinese mainland has increased rapidly, and foreign multinational companies and some domestic enterprises have also re-dispersed latex powder projects in Kyle all over the country.

According to the statistics of relevant experts, in 2003, the global output of redispersible latex powder was 190,000 tons, which was mainly used in Europe and North America. The consumption of redispersible latex powder in China was less than 5,000 tons. In 2007, the market consumption of redispersible latex powder in China reached 40,000 tons. It is predicted that the domestic demand of redispersible latex powder will reach 100,000 tons in 2010.

According to statistics, there are more than 2 billion square meters of newly built buildings in China every year, and there are still several hundred million square meters of existing buildings that need to be rebuilt. With the implementation of national building energy-saving laws and regulations, the vigorous promotion of ready-mixed dry-mixed mortar technology, and the restrictions of various provinces and cities on the mixing of building mortar at the construction site, the application of redispersible latex powder will be vigorously developed.
