Methyl Methacrylate (MMA)
MMA is a polymer primarily used in the construction market. However in the scientific markets, MMA is a major consumer of acetone, thus demands in the construction market can influence acetone availability.
Because most production of MMA in the US market goes into the coatings industry (paints, lacquer, and enamels), the construction industry determines supply and demand of the material.
