The global ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) market was valued at USD 7.5 billion in 2017 and is likely to expand to USD 11.6 billion by 2024, witnessing a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period. The growth can be primarily attributed to the increasing demand for ethylene vinyl acetate from packaging industry. The replacement of traditional packaging techniques with flexible packaging has propelled the demand for EVA in packaging applications. Additionally, growing use of EVA in the solar power industry is further expected to drive the demand over the forecast period.

The increasing adoption of bio-based ethylene vinyl acetate in light of environmental concerns is likely to boost the market demand. EVA is defined as a copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate that produces rubber like soft and flexible material. The weight percentage of vinyl acetate generally varies from 10 to 40%, and the remainder being ethylene. Key properties of EVA such as flexibility, resilience, toughness, resistance and transparency have increased its preference across various end-use industries.
