Vinyl Acetate Market Growth Rates Remain Slow in Europe

Asia and Middle East are the key regions where growth in the global vinyl acetate market will intensify, according to a new report.

Asia and Middle East are the key regions where growth in the global vinyl acetate market will intensify, according to “Vinyl Acetate (VAM): 2011 World Market Outlook and Forecast” from Merchant Research & Consulting Ltd. A number of projects and new facilities are planned to come on-stream in the coming years; vast capacity expansions are set for China, and Saudi Arabia and Iran are also reporting increases in vinyl acetate output.
