Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Acrylated Epoxies and Urethanes

  • Acrylated epoxies dominates the global UV curable resin market. It has rapid cure rates and good adhesion and is widely used in paints and varnishes. Additionally, they have outstanding corrosion resistance. Acrylated urethanes is anticipated to gain significant growth. This type of resins has excellent film hardness, elasticity and cure speed based on the prepolymer used. They are extensively used in resilient floor coatings and as coatings for flexible packaging on account of their superior durability and flexibility.
  • Owing to such properties, major applications of these resins are in the coating (wood, paper, plastics, and metal), industrial (packaging, optoelectronics, and adhesives), graphics art (printing inks, plates, and overprint varnishes) and automotive.
  • Increased application of these resins in 3D printing, barrier films, digital printing, packaging, and printed circuit is expected to boost the growth of the market. 3D printing materials with high flexibility, processability, and stability is likely to create more opportunities in future.
  • Industrial sector and eco-friendly products are key consumers for UV curable resins. The increasing significance of safe, odor-free, sustainable and green materials by various government regulatory authorities globally has resulted in the surge in the demand.
