The Global Epoxy Resin Market Stood Around 3500 Thousand Tonnes in 2021 and is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 4.05% During the Forecast Period Until 2030

The global Epoxy Resin market stood around 3500 thousand tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.05% during the forecast period until 2030. In the year 2021, the market showed a significant growth of 2.5% in comparison to 2020. Meghmani Finechem Ltd., on the leading producers of Chlor-Alkali and derivatives, has announced the construction of epichlorohydrin (ECH) plant worth INR 275 crore situated in Dahej, Gujarat, India. This plant is estimated to be operational in 2024 with an annual capacity of 50 thousand tonnes. The project is anticipated to reduce India’s dependance on other nations for importing Epoxy Resin.

Epoxy resin is a thermosetting copolymer produced through polymerization of epoxide and other monomers containing hydroxyl group. Epoxy resins consists of a monomeric resin, an accelerator, a hardener, and a plasticizer. These resins have various properties such as corrosion resistance, high thermal stability, high mechanical strength, high chemical and environmental resistance, durability, adhesion etc. owing to these properties, epoxy resins find application in several areas including paints and coatings, adhesives, composites, electronic encapsulation, and others. Major applications for epoxy resins include building and construction, automotive, general industrial, consumer goods, wind power, aerospace, marine, and others.

The Epoxy Resin market is primary driven by the construction and industrialization. Increasing demand of light weight high performance materials from the construction and automotive sectors coupled with the increasing demand for high performance materials in the wind power and aerospace industry is expected to drive the demand for epoxy resins for the forecast period. Moreover, the increasing need for biodegradable polymers and stringent environmental regulations regarding bisphenol A are expected to hinder the demand growth during the forecast period. Throughout the projection period, the automotive and construction industries are anticipated to exhibit significant increase which will further swell the Epoxy Resin demand in the forecast period and total market to reach about 5000 thousand tonnes by 2030.
