Global Epoxy Resin Market Size, Growth and Future Outlook: Ken Research


Market Overview:

Epoxy resin refers to a type of reactive prepolymer and polymer containing epoxide groups. These resins react either with themselves in the presence of catalysts, or with many co-reactants like amines, phenols, and thiols. Epoxy resin is a type of resin with tough mechanical properties, good chemical resistance, and high adhesive strength, making it highly useful for various applications. Due to more thermal and chemical resistance than other types of resin, it has exclusive usage in making aircraft components.

The Global Epoxy Resin Market is expected to record a positive CAGR of ~7% during the forecast period (2022-2028), due to the rapid industrialization and rise in demand from the building and construction industries.

  • Due to the adaptive nature of epoxy compounds, resins have gained recognition in several industries such as construction, automobile, aviation, electromechanical, telecommunications, energy, and others.
  • The growing construction industry is expected to augment the growth of the paints and coatings industry. In 2021, the government of Europe planned to construct around 1.5 million housing units. Similarly, the growth in construction activities in countries like Russia, France, the United Kingdom, etc., is expected to drive the growth of the epoxy resin market.
  • For instance, according to the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), in 2019, the government of China approved 26 infrastructure projects with a total expected investment of USD 142 billion. Similarly, in 2020, the Communist Party of China announced that the government is planning around USD 1,400 Bn for a digital infrastructure public spending program.
  • Epoxies are made with petroleum-based basic ingredients like BPA (Bisphenol A) and ECH (Epichlorohydrin). Thus, changes in the crude oil price have a considerable impact on the pricing of these many raw materials, as well as the basic costs of epoxy resin. Price fluctuations have a detrimental influence on profit margins, particularly for small-scale producers, which hampers the growth of the market.
  • The market was negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, owing to the strict regulations in several countries. This affected various industries such as paints and coatings, adhesives and sealants, electrical and electronics, and others due to supply chain disruptions, work stoppages, and labor shortages. The global pandemic caused a ban on imports-exports thereby disrupting the supply chain and hampering the market.
  • The demand for epoxy resin decreased in the aerospace, transportation, and marine industries, as all the industries were shut and due to this, demand for resin had been impacted negatively.

Key Trends by Market Segment

By Raw Material:  DGBEF segment held the largest market share of the Global Epoxy Resin Market in 2021, as it improves thermal stability, has strong mechanical properties, and provides moisture resistance. It is used extensively across multiple end-user industries such as building & construction and automotive.

  • DGBEF is Diglycidyl Ether Bisphenol F, a reaction product of phenol and formaldehyde. This type of epoxy resin is sold as liquids and solid resin dissolved in solvent and prepregs.
  • DGBEF performs better in resisting chemical attack as compared to other types, owing to its higher density of cross-links.

By Physical Form: The liquid form segment held the largest market share of the Global Epoxy Resin Market in 2021. The reason behind the largest share of this segment is a wide area of applications in almost all industries.

  • Epoxy resin in liquid form prevents corrosion and as a sealant, it protects surfaces, including pipelines, metal, floors, countertops, and equipment parts.
  • It is often found in transistors and electrical circuits to protect parts from moisture, dirt, dust, and other debris that can damage materials over time.
  • In March 2019, Axalta launched liquid epoxy-based casting resin system, Voltacast 3310/Voltacast H134. The launch of products expanded the Voltacast product portfolio of casting resins from Axalta’s Energy Solutions business.

By Application: The paint & coatings segment held the largest market share of the Global Epoxy Resin Market in 2021, resins are widely utilized in residential & commercial buildings, shipbuilding industries, automotive, and wastewater treatment plants among others owing to their excellent resistance to stains, cracks, extreme temperatures, blistering, and chemicals.
