The chemical family of methacrylate initially discovered during the 19thcentury was commercially manufactured in the first half of the 20th century. Versatile properties make methacrylate monomers the product of choice for a variety of applications. There are majorly two types of methacrylate: basic commodity methacrylates and application/specialty methacrylates. Against the basic commodity monomers, specialty monomers are used in small quantities to improve the functionality and performance of end products.

The global specialty methacrylates market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2019 to 2025 to reach $2,656.0 million by 2025.
