Published Date : 10 May 2024

The global epoxy resin market size was evaluated at USD 10.86 billion in 2023 and is expected to attain around USD 19.39 billion by 2033, growing at a CAGR of 5.90% from 2024 to 2033. Rising demand for epoxy resins from several sustainability mandates & stringent regulatory, end-use segments, and rising concerns for the environment are enhancing the growth of the epoxy resin market.

Epoxy Resin Market Size and Growth Rate From 2024 to 2033

Market Overview

The epoxy resin market produces epoxy resin, which is a raw material-based polymer that is used to coat and chemically paint. In addition, epoxy resin offers high performance with outstanding features, including stability, endurance, corrosion resistance, and temperature stability. They are used in the formation of vegetable oil, sugar, natural rubber, and many more. The rising demand for sealants and adhesives in the automotive industry and the growing construction industry are the major factors enhancing the market growth.

The rising adoption of reformable and recyclable epoxy resin will drive the demand for the market. Due to automotive production surging rapidly, the growing disposable income and demand from middle-class families are increasing quickly and are anticipated to drive the growth of the epoxy resin market.

The application of epoxy resin in various industries drives market growth

When epoxy resin comes in contact with other substances, it holds a good strength. Because epoxy resins have a cohesive bond that balances their resistance for a longer period. Due to the hard epoxy chemical, it's an extra feature that adds to its energy. Epoxy resin has outstanding and impressive use due to its versatility features. It has the surprising and unique effect of getting stuck to various materials, which is why it gets bound with all the materials with the same kind of comfort. So, epoxy resin is called the most pleasing construction material.

The chemistry structure of epoxy resins offers enough stability to make it durable and reliable. Epoxy is resistant to other weather and chemicals. Epoxy resins are very easy to apply over various surfaces, whether it's epoxy flooring or epoxy paints, and they are always swift in the process. Epoxy resins have unique underwater construction features. This chemical is suitable enough for underwater construction. These are the major factors expected to drive the growth of the epoxy resin market.

However, long curing time, messy application, and higher costs may restrain the growth of the market. Epoxy resin glue has a higher curing time and takes a maximum of hours to cure completely. Epoxy resin glue is sticky and thin, which can make it messy and create irritation when applied. It can also be very hard to remove from skin and surfaces. Epoxy resin glue can contain toxic and harmful chemicals, including epichlorohydrin and bisphenol A, which can be harmful if inhaled or ingested. Epoxy resin glue can be more costly compared to other kinds of adhesives, which creates a challenge for applications that need large amounts of glue. These are the hindering factors responsible for the growth of the market.

Market Potential and Growth Opportunity

Increasing integration of bio-based polyepoxides

Epoxy resins were generated based on resins to minimize the environmental impact. Biomaterials such as rosins, vegetable oils, lignin, and other biomaterials are utilized to replace a high percentage of petrochemicals. These materials remove the requirement for BPA, which must be handled with care and be hazardous. This type of epoxy resin has a wide range of applications, such as composites, adhesives, and coating materials. Therefore, the rising demand for sustainability in various end-use industries is anticipated to create a lucrative opportunity for the market in the coming years.
