Posted by Mangesh Mahajan on March 12th, 2020

Market Potential and Pitfalls

Modified Epoxy Resins Market provide several properties like improved thermal shock resistance, better peel strength, and excellent resistance to corrosion. Such properties of modified epoxy resins mark its usage in several end-use industries like building and construction, automobile, marine, aerospace, and others. Modified epoxy resins extensively find its application in sealants and adhesives due to their excellent heat resistance and durability. With the burgeoning building, automotive, and construction industries in the developing countries, the modified epoxy resins market is likely to experience an upsurge. Modified epoxy resins are also highly used in the aerospace industries owing to its high modulus, enhanced strength, and lightweight.

dOn the contrary, strict mandates associated with the control of VOC emissions like the Environmental Protection Agency, National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants by the US, and strict mandates for air pollution by the California Air Resources Board are some of the top barriers considered to vitiate the market growth during the appraisal period.

Market Synopsis

Market Research Future (MRFR) asserts that the Global Modified Epoxy Resins Market Analysis is likely to demonstrate a stellar CAGR during the forecast period (2019-2023). The growth in the automotive and construction industries is favoring the market growth. Also termed as polyepoxides, epoxy resins are the type of reactive polymers containing epoxide groups. They are cross-linked or reacted wither with themselves or a variety of co-reactants like acids, polyfunctional amines, alcohols, thiols, and phenols. The reaction between the co-reactants and epoxy resins give rise to thermosetting polymers with enhanced mechanical properties, chemical resistance, and temperature, known as modified epoxy resin.

Regional Insights

Geographically, the modified epoxy resins market span across regions namely, North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East & Africa.

Considering the global scenario, the APAC region commands for the major share and is likely to expand at the fastest rate. The rising disposable income and the geriatric population in the developing economies are the top factors fueling the market growth in this region. The growing construction industry, especially in countries like China and India, are further triggering the demand for modified epoxy resins in the paints & coatings sector, thereby fostering the market growth. As per the Indian Brand Equity Foundation, the Indian infrastructure has experienced 33 deals from 2016-2017 which involved USD 3.49 billion. Moreover, the developing electronics sector, especially in China and Japan, are propelling its demand in this region.

North America is considered to dominate the global modified epoxy resins market owing to the presence of the top three automobile companies namely Ford, General Motors, and Fiat Chrysler. The newly elected government has brought a new wave of investment in the renovation and construction of infrastructure in Canada and the U.S. which has further triggered its demand in this region.
