Acrylonitrile is a commodity petrochemical derived from propylene. It is manufactured by the ammoxidation of propylene. Major uses for acrylonitrile are as a monomer in polyacrylonitrile for acrylic fibers, in ABS and SAN resin manufacture as a modifying monomer, and as a chemical intermediate in the manufacture of adiponitrile and acrylamide.

Acrylonitrile is used in production of acrylic fibres, acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS), styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN) and nitrile-butadiene-rubber (NBR). Capacity utilization is expected to grow from 86% at present to 92% by 2020. New capacities are expected to be added in China, Iran and Saudi Arabia in the near future. China aims to become more self-sufficient and less dependent on import by adding new ACN plants.

Ineos, Asahi Kasei Corporation, Sinopec, Formosa Plastics Corp, Sumitomo Chemical Company Limited, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation and Reliance Industries Limited are some of the major players in acrylonitrile industry.


The low per capita consumption of Acrylonitrile products in developing countries such as India, China and Brazil, along with the growth of end-use industries provides a bright future for global Acrylonitrile market.


The industry is expected to face certain challenges such as fluctuation of crude oil prices, product commoditization and saturation in demand for Acrylonitrile.
