The epoxy resins market saw about 3.2 million metric tons of global demand in 2019. The demand is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 5% between 2020 and 2025 to reach a volume of 4.3 million metric tons by 2025.
The Asia Pacific region, followed by the European Union and North America, are the major supply markets for epoxy resins. Over 75% of the epoxy resins supply is concentrated within the Asia Pacific. It is expected that the overall demand of the substance will continue to grow in the coming years. North America, Europe, and Asia have excess capacity at the regional level and there is significant trade between these regions due to different epoxy resin qualities. Major exporters like the United States and the European Union, export epoxy resin of high quality to the rest of the world. The United States mainly exports its surplus epoxy production to supply countries with deficits, such as Canada and Mexico. It is expected that in the future South Korea, the United States, and Germany will continue to be the net exporters of epoxy resins.
The Asia Pacific exports epoxy resins to Europe and North America as and when there is a regional price arbitrage. The Asia Pacific accounts for nearly 65% of global epoxy resin consumption, with China being the largest consumer. China majorly imports high-quality epoxy material from Taiwan. The growth in the highly concentrated electronics industry in Asia will continue to be the primary driver of the demand for epoxy resins. Rising industrialization and rising disposable income will also increase the demand for the substance in the building and automotive industries in the form of adhesives and coating.
North America has a surplus capacity of epoxy resins, with supply being enough to meet the domestic demand of the product. The region relies on cheaper material imports from the Asia Pacific. This cheap material is used for applications which do not necessarily demand high-quality material. The domestic demand for epoxy resins is also driven by the rising renewable energy sector in North America. The high-quality resins produced in North America are usually exported to regions like China, Korea, along with other Asian countries.
Properties and Applications
Epoxy resins are used for the production of plastics, adhesives, paints, coatings, primers and sealers, flooring, and other materials and products used in building and construction applications. Epoxies are plastics made from thermoset through the reaction of two or more industrial chemical compounds. They find their applications in the following segments:
The report also covers the regional markets of the product like North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, the Asia Pacific, and Latin America.
The global epoxy resin market is being driven by the expected growth in the global electronics market, especially in the emerging region of the Asia Pacific. Along with the growing smartphone and other gadget markets, the epoxy resins market is also expected to grow since electronics consume most of the epoxies by volume, owing to its applications in circuit boards. The growing construction activities and the growth of the automotive industry in developing economies will also aid the epoxy resins market growth. The rising trade of epoxy resins between different regions is also a major driver, propelling the market growth further.
The growing demand for adhesives and paints as well as coatings in emerging economies, like China, India, Latin America, etc., are also driving the market growth. The rising demand from the United States and Europe for waterborne composite applications in marine coatings, aerospace, and windmills will also propel the industry forward in the coming years. In North America and Europe, windmill installations will support the demand growth for epoxy resins.
