'Phenolic Resin Market by Type (Resol and Novolac) and by Application (Wood Adhesive, Molding, Laminates, Insulation, and Others) – Global Trends & Forecast to 2019'

Phenolic resin is the oldest synthetic resin. Because of its high mechanical strength, good heat resistance, flame retardant, low toxicity, low smoke and its property of getting blended with other polymers to achieve high performance it is widely used in molding compounds, wood adhesives, laminates, insulation, and other fields.

Phenolic resins are used in plywood and in fibrous and granulated wood products. Demand for wood products is influenced by the health of the construction industry and overall state of the economy. Since the major portion of phenolic resins is used in the wood products industry, the market for phenolic resins in most countries closely tracks GDP growth and housing market growth.

Wood adhesives will continue to have the largest share of the world market for phenolic resins and will drive phenolic resin consumption on a global scale. The developing regions of Central and South America and Central and Eastern Europe will experience the largest growth in this application. READ MORE >

Phenolic resin is made by reacting phenol (an aromatic alcohol derived from benzene) with formaldehyde (a reactive gas derived from methane). These resins were the first completely synthetic polymers to be commercialized. In the first decades of the 20th century, Bakelite, a trademarked phenolic plastic, revolutionized the phenolic resin market for molded and laminated parts for use in electrical equipment. Phenolic resins is still very important industrial polymers, though their most common use today is in adhesives for the bonding of plywood and other structural wood products.

Phenolic Resin has so many uses in different industries. It finds usage in wood adhesive, molding, friction control, foundry, laminates, insulation, and other applications. They are used in the circuit board production that is for making circuit board like PCB, etc. In Electrical equipment, it is needed, caps, handles, buttons, radio cabinets, furniture, knobs, vacuum cleaner, cameras, ash trays, and engine ignition equipment. It is also used in laminated material like laminated sheets, rods and tubes are made in great variety from fabric, paper, wood veneers and so on impregnated with phenolic, resins providing a range of materials of widely differing properties.

Wood adhesive application of these resins is expected to drive the phenolic resin market. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth that phenolic resins make excellent wood adhesives for plywood and particleboard because they form chemical bonds with the phenol-like lignin component of wood. They are especially desirable for exterior plywood, owing to their good moisture resistance.

In most regions of the world, the largest markets for phenolic resins are in plywood and in fibrous and granulated wood products. Demand for wood products is influenced by the health of the construction industry and overall state of the economy. Since the major portion of phenolic resins is used in the wood products industry, the market for phenolic resins in most countries closely tracks GDP growth and housing market growth

Asia-Pacific dominated the phenolic resin market followed by North America. Moreover, The South and Central America is expected to witness the above average growth rate by 2019 due large requirement of phenolic resins for different industry. New construction and housing project projects in Asia-Pacific, Americas are expected to drive the market.
