CLEVELAND (Dec. 13)—Emulsion polymer demand in the U.S. will grow more than 3 percent to 5.5 billion pounds in 2004, according to a new Freedonia Group Inc. study. "Emulsion Polymers" predicts the market value will increase to $4.8 billion because of a shift to higher priced emulsions. Styrene-butadiene latex emulsions will remain the largest segment, but acrylic and vinyl acrylic emulsions will see 3.9- and 3.1-percent increases in the period, respectively. The 193-page report is available from Freedonia for $3,600. For information, call Corinne Gangloff by phone at 440-684-9600; by fax at 440-646-0484; or by e-mail at [email protected]
