Opportunities for thermoset resin in the global composites industry to reach $13.8 billion by 2021


   January 9 2017

According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of thermoset resin in the global composites industry looks good with opportunities in pipe and tank, construction, electrical/electronics, wind energy, marine, transportation, aerospace/defense, and consumer goods industries. The thermoset resin market in the global composites industry is expected to reach an estimated $13.8 billion by 2021 and it is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% by value from 2016 to 2021. The major drivers for market growth are the increasing demand for lightweight materials, and performance benefits of reinforced composites over rival materials. .

In this market, pipe and tank, construction, electrical/electronics, wind energy, marine, transportation, aerospace/defense, and consumer goods are the major end use industries. On the basis of its comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that the aerospace/defense, transportation, and construction segments are expected to show above average growth during the forecast period.

Within the thermoset resin market in the global composites industry, pipe and tank is expected to remain the largest segment by value and construction by volume. Expected growth in the infrastructure development, rehabilitation of old infrastructures, and capital investment in industrial development are the major driving forces that spur growth for these segments over the forecast period.

By resin type, polyester is expected to remain the largest segment due to its lower-cost and ability to meet many of the application requirements in the composites industry.  By process, hand lay-up/Spray up is expected to remain the largest segment for thermoset resin demand in composites application as it is the most common method for composite part fabrication with low tooling and capital cost.

Asia Pacific is expected to remain the largest market and witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period due to the anticipated growth in the end user industries and increasing demand for lightweight materials.

For business expansion, Lucintel’s report suggests innovation to achieve higher strength, lower environmental impact, fast curing, and ease of processing. Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include development of rapid cure resin systems, emergence of bio based thermosets, and increasing use of Fire, Smoke, and Toxic (FST) resin. Ashland, DSM, Reichhold, Huntsman, BASF SE, Polynt, AOC, Dow Chemicals, Olin Epoxy, Bayer, and Momentive are among the major suppliers of thermoset resin in the global composites industry.
