Key Market Trends

Growing Demand of Epoxy Resin in Global Market

  • Epichlorohydrin is principally changed over to bisphenol A glycidyl ether, a building block in the manufacturing of epoxy resins. It is additionally a precursor to monomers for different resins and polymers.
  • Epoxy resin is extensively used as an insulation material for the electronics and electrical applications that require protection in extreme and dangerous environments (such as chemical plant equipment, deep sea, and engine management).
  • Epoxy resins hold a wide range of applications in the industry due to its valuable properties in the paints & coatings industry in the form of anti-corrosive primers, primer tie coats, primer finishes, abrasion-resistant coatings, and chemical, heat, and fire-resistant coatings.
  • Owing to the aforementioned factors, the application of epichlorohydrin as epoxy resins is expected to increase during the forecast period.
