The Global Epoxy Resin Market is expected to reach USD 22.73 Billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 6.68% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030.


Market Overview

Epoxide resins, also known as epoxy resins and ethoxyline resins, are distinguished by the presence of more than one 1,2-epoxy group (I) per molecule.Epoxy resins are widely known for their reactivity, which enables them to effectively fuse to fibers and other materials. Since thermoset resins are coupled with glass or carbon fibers to make composite materials with the best qualities of most thermosets, epoxy resins are strong and durable.

Epoxy resins are largely utilized in the production of paints and coatings. Epoxy is also employed in electronic applications and the construction industry, but epoxy resins are especially useful in electronic applications for printed circuit boards and encapsulation.

Epoxy resins have been employed in powder coatings, high solids coatings, and acrylic coating resins. UV coatings use epoxy resins as intermediates. Epoxy resins crosslinked with polyisocyanate are used to make electrodeposition automobile primers. In some coatings, epoxy resins are utilized as additive resins to increase qualities such as adherence and resistance.

Driving Factors

With its strong oxidation and corrosion resistance, epoxy resin has grown in popularity in recent years.Epoxy resins are in high demand in the aerospace and aircraft building industries due to their lightweight and durability, as well as high heat resistance and pressure tolerance, which make them ideal for use in the aircraft sector.Epoxy resins are also used to insulate solar panels from temperature changes. Because of their affordability, ease of use, and low labor requirements, these materials are in high demand in the energy sector.

Additionally, epoxy resins assist in the development of a variety of coating characteristics like strength, endurance, and chemical stability.Epoxy resins are suitable for covering metals and other surfaces due to their quick cooling, durability, high adherence, rapid curing, resistance to abrasion, and excellent water resistance.Epoxy coatings, such as primers, are employed to prevent corrosion in the industrial, automotive, marine, and aerospace industries.The global epoxy resin market is likely to be driven further by the demand for epoxy coating in the electric vehicle (EV), marine, and aerospace sectors.

Increasing urbanization and shifting government policies in key emerging countries are promoting the growth of all epoxy end-use industries, hence increasing demand for polyepoxides.Technological advancements in epoxy chemistry are opening the path for additional market expansion in developed economies.


Restraining Factors

Epoxy resins are made from fossil fuel-based basic components such as BPA and ECH. As a result, fluctuations in crude oil prices have a significant impact on the cost of epoxy resins as well as the pricing of these raw materials. Increased raw material costs in 2021 are a result of the altered supply-demand scenario during COVID-19, which was followed by decreased production.


Market Segmentation

  • In 2021, the DGBEA segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period

On the basis of type, the GlobalEpoxy Resin Market is segmented into DGBEA, DGBEF, novolac, aliphatic, glycidylamine, andother. Among these, the DGBEAsegment is expected to increase at a significantCAGR during the forecast period. The most popular epoxy resins are made by combining bisphenol A and epichlorohydrin (ECH), which produces bisphenol A diglycidyl ether (DGBEA), a distinct molecule. Given its toughness, high adhesion, chemical resistance, and other specialized qualities such as low shrinkage and moisture absorption, it is employed in a wide range of consumer and industrial applications.
