What is Ethyl acrylate
Ethyl acrylate is an organic compound with the chemical formula C5H8O2. It is a colorless, flammable liquid with a sweet, pungent smell. Ethyl acrylate is used in the production of polymers, resins, and rubber, and is also used as a plasticiser and a solvent. It is highly reactive and should be handled with caution.
Ethyl acrylate is produced by the esterification of acrylic acid with ethanol. It can also be synthesized from acetylene and acrylonitrile in the presence of a catalyst. Ethyl acrylate is a monomer, which means that it can be polymerized to form long chains of molecules known as polymers. When polymerized, ethyl acrylate can form a variety of polymers with different properties, such as elasticity, flexibility, and strength. These polymers are used in a wide range of products, including adhesives, coatings, and plastics.
Ethyl acrylate is classified as a hazardous substance and can be harmful if inhaled, ingested, or absorbed through the skin. It can cause irritation to the skin, eyes, and respiratory system, and can be toxic if ingested or inhaled in large amounts. As a result, it is important to handle ethyl acrylate with caution and to use appropriate protective equipment when working with it.
How is Ethyl acrylate produced
Ethyl acrylate is produced by the esterification of acrylic acid with ethanol. The reaction is typically carried out in the presence of an acid catalyst, such as sulfuric acid or hydrochloric acid. The reaction produces ethyl acrylate and water as the by-products.
The process for producing ethyl acrylate typically involves the following steps:
Preparation of the reactants
The reactants, acrylic acid and ethanol, are prepared and measured out in the correct proportions.
Mixing of the reactants
The reactants are mixed together in a reactor vessel, along with the catalyst. The mixture is stirred to ensure that the reactants are evenly distributed.
The esterification reaction is carried out at a temperature of around 150-160°C for several hours. The reaction produces ethyl acrylate and water as the by-products.
Separation of the products
The products of the reaction, ethyl acrylate and water, are separated from each other by distillation. The ethyl acrylate is collected as a liquid, while the water is removed as a vapor.
The ethyl acrylate is purified by distillation to remove any impurities that may have been produced during the esterification reaction. The purified ethyl acrylate is then cooled and stored for use in the production of polymers, resins, rubber, and other products.
The production of ethyl acrylate requires careful handling and safety precautions due to the use of concentrated acids and the highly reactive nature of the compound.

Market information related to Ethyl acrylate
It is difficult to accurately estimate the size of the global ethyl acrylate market as it depends on various factors such as demand for polymers, resins, rubber, and other products that use ethyl acrylate as a key ingredient. However, ethyl acrylate is a widely used chemical compound with a range of applications, and the demand for it is likely to continue to grow in the coming years as the global population increases and the demand for products that use ethyl acrylate as a key ingredient increases.
According to https://oec.world/ :
Acrylic acid esters are the world’s 1108th most traded product.

Where does the data come from?
- The source of the data are exclusively public non-confidential sources
- This the index trend of the price of the product group in general and not a single specification in particular
- The data is a combination of contract and spot pricing
- Our algorithms are set up to eliminate significant product mix impact on the reported price
- We combine public publications, import/export records, trading prices, company announcements, magazine articles, tweets, and other sources of ad-hoc public information.
- The chart shows the our best approximation of the market trend based on our algorithm interpretation of the signals
- For most indexes we have multiple sources and we focus on using statistically-correlated sources
- We will update the data trend as more information becomes available, and this means that recent trends will always be adjusted as we get more data available
- We will constantly revise our understanding of market trends, and indicated market trends may change
- The data is presented in US$. The UOM of measure is shown in the Index list table
- We do our best to create an accurate representation of the trend
Where does the data NOT come from?
- We do not purchase data from any other source and republish it.
- We will not purchase data from any other source and republish it
- We do not extrapolate trends, even for the forecast. We look for other market signals and leading indicators
What does the quality indication in the main menu mean?
- Quality level A: Data is from a reliable and confirmed source
- Quality level B: Data is from multiple credible sources and there are no major statistical inconsistencies between them
- Quality level C: Data is from multiple credible sources and there are some statistical inconsistencies between them
- Quality level D: Data is from a single credible source, but we cannot verify the data
- Quality level E: Data is either:
- From a single source, which we consider reliable, but we cannot verify the data.
- From 2 or more sources which have some periods of contradicting trends.
- Quality level F: Data is from a single source which we consider indicatively correct, but the data is anecdotal and we cannot verify the data.
What does the data intend to show?
- The price trend we show is intended to represent the locally manufactured prices, or local FOB prices.
- It is possible that product is imported in from other countries at a lower, or higher, price than shown.
- For example:
- The USA price for TiO2 is US$3,000/MT
- The China price for TiO2 is US$2,100/MT
- If a USA company buys TiO2 from China, their CIF price may be US$2,350/MT
- Our reporting is intended to show the US$3,000/MT, and the the US$2,100/MT but not the US$2,350/MT
What data should our company use?
- If you are making decisions driving significant share of profit, we always recommend that you buy data from the companies who invest in direct market access such as ICIS, amongst many others
- Our data, at best, represents an estimate of the market trend based on public information
- We have no direct access to the market, and we do not interview suppliers and customers
- Our analysis tools in the online software are set up to combine our data with other sources of data
What are the disclaimers?
- We assume no responsibility or liability for any errors or omissions in the content of this site.
- The information is provided on an “as is” basis with no guarantee of completeness, accuracy, usefulness, fitness for purpose or timeliness.

How often do we update the data?
- We aim to update the data series on the 9th and 24th of each month (but we do not always make it for each chart)
- The data for the current month and recent history are fine-tuned over time.
What are we doing to improve the data?
- We are continually improving our data collection and processing methods
- Pricing data will be updated from time to time as we improve the accuracy
- We will improve our price trend algorithm before December 31, 2023.
- There will be continuous fine-tuning of the trend and forecast algorithm until end of December 2023.
- As part of that process, we will add many additional indexes in the final quarter of 2023
