The Global Bisphenol a Market Stood Around 5500 Thousand Tonnes in 2021 and is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 3.48% in the Forecast Period Until 2032

The global Bisphenol A market stood around 5500 thousand tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.48% in the forecast period until 2032.

  • Bisphenol A is a colorless solid which is miscible in organic solvents while soluble in water. One may encounter BPA in everyday products like CDs, plastic bowl, helmets, mobile phone etc. BPA is produced by condensation of phenol and acetone in 2:1 ratio. BPA is an additive which not only lead to production of Polycarbonate resin & epoxy resin but also PVC & for the coating of thermal paper. It is used as an additive in brake fluid and in dental filling and sealing materials. Used in inner coating of canes. BPA derivates have vast applications and can be detected in aluminum bottles, beverages cans etc.
Bisphenol (BPA) is a key ingredient in the manufacturing of polycarbonate and epoxy resin. Polycarbonate resin has properties like flame retardant, electrical and heat resistance. Polycarbonate resin is used in fabrication of various electronic components (water boilers, coffee machines, and computer parts), safety glass, optical storage media along with electrical and telecommunication hardware owing to superior resistance properties. Similarly, Epoxy resins have diversified application in the manufacturing of flooring, inner coatings of canes, paints, coatings, adhesives etc. Epoxy resins are highly durable and tough and finds in various applications such as floor coating, concrete floor coating, since the epoxy resins last long and display resistance to chemical detergents.

Since Bisphenol A is employed as a solvent in polyester, polycarbonate, epoxy resins, and polyurethanes, which are extensively used in automotive, marine, and protective coatings, there is a growing need for the chemical as a solvent. The market for polycarbonates is expected to rise, and the automotive industry is expected to expand significantly. Owing to these reasons, the Bisphenol A demand is estimated to reach 8000 thousand tonnes by the forecast period till 2032.

Based on region-wise consumption, the Asia Pacific is leading the global Bisphenol A market, followed by Europe and North America. In 2021 Asia Pacific consumed approximately 55% of the market. Furthermore, Asia Pacific region also dominates the Bisphenol A market in terms of production and accounted for roughly 35% of global capacity as of 2021.

Based on the end-user industry, the global Bisphenol A market is bifurcated into Polycarbonate resins, Epoxy Resins, Unsaturated Polyester resins, Flame Retardants, and Others. Among these industries, Polycarbonate resins industry is the major consumer and accounted for nearly half of the Bisphenol A market in 2021. Polycarbonate resins is anticipated to maintain its position in the forecast period. Epoxy Resins is another prominent consumer of Bisphenol A market.

Major players in the production of Global Bisphenol A market are Bayer AG, Kumho P&B Chemicals Inc, LG Chem, SABIC, Sinopec, Dow Chemicals, GE Plastics, Changchun Chemical Co.Ltd, Shell Chemicals, Saudi Kayan Petrochemical Company, Momentive Speciallity Chemicals, PTT Phenol Company Limited, and Nayna Plastics Corporation.
