Executive Summary

Synthetic marble is a composite of resins like acrylate, polyester and fillers. Fillers can be silica, calcium carbonate and so on. The raw materials required for manufacturing synthetic marble are filler, sap, gel coat, strong or fluid color and impetus. Filler act as an aggregate and must exist up to 85%to 95%by weight. Pigment is added to get the desired color. Artificial marbles require gel coats since moldings made without gel coats are vulnerable to stress cracking and have a tendency to stain. The combination agent is a small molecule that aids in the diffusion of a solid particulate substance into a liquid medium. Synthetic marble is broadly classified into three categories: Acrylic marble, Unsaturated polyester marble and Inorganic artificial marble.

Marble production is dominated by 4 countries that account for almost half of world production of marble and decorative stone. Synthetic marble is largely manufactured in China and Italy, and constituting the world’s largest share in exports. This market gained momentum in the year 2011 and is projected to raise its market share in the recent years due to upsurge in the real estate sector. The market share of synthetic marble is governed mainly by MMA-Based synthetic marble.
