Epoxy Resin Market Size & Trends

The global epoxy resin market size was estimated at USD 11.25 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% from 2024 to 2030. Increasing demand for paints and coatings is anticipated to drive market growth significantly during the forecast period. Increasing demand for epoxy resins is attributed to growing spending on construction, particularly residential construction, especially in North America and Western Europe. The rapid growth in global manufacturing activities is expected to fuel the demand for paints & coatings used in the production of motor vehicles and other durable goods, as well as industrial maintenance applications. This is expected to boost the demand for epoxy resins globally.

U.S. Epoxy Resin Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

Asia Pacific has been the leading consumer of epoxy resins, fueled by increasing demand from China and India. Infrastructure development, along with increasing automotive production, has fueled paints & coatings demand in the region. Increasing disposable income and willingness to spend are expected to drive the market over the coming years.

In the recent past, global automotive production increased rapidly due to growing demand from middle-class families and rising disposable income across emerging nations such as China, India, Brazil, Vietnam, and others. The rise in automotive demand propelled the consumption of paints & coatings across the automotive industry, thereby fueling the demand for epoxy resins. However, volatile raw material price of epoxy resin is expected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.

In addition, the outbreak of COVID-19 negatively impacted the demand for epoxy resin in various applications, including paints & coatings, adhesives, wind turbines, and others, owing to the stalled manufacturing activities, restrictions in supply and transportation, and economic slowdown across the globe in 2020. Moreover, the recommencing industrial operation is projected to positively influence the market demand in the coming years.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market space is moderately consolidated with the presence of key companies, such as 3M, Aditya Birla Management Corp. Pvt. Ltd, BASF SE, and Sika AG. These companies adopt various strategic initiatives, such as new product launches, partnerships, capacity expansions, and collaborations, to expand their presence in the market. For instance, in March 2024, Safic-Alcan announced its expansion by collaborating with BB Resins Srl. BB Resins Srl is a manufacturer of epoxy resin hardeners, which boasts an extensive range of products specifically designed for the coatings, construction, and adhesives sectors. With this collaboration, Safic-Alcan aims to expand its business across Poland.

Epoxy Resin Market Concentration & Characteristics

The industry is characterized by a high degree of innovation. Technological advancement, upgradation of electronic products, and circuit assembly have propelled PCB fabrication technology toward micro via, fine-trace, high-density tracing, and multi-layers. The usage of epoxy resins enhances thermal dissipation, dimensional stability, and dielectric loss, therefore, propelling the demand for epoxy resins in the manufacture of CCL. In recent years, the electronic industry has grown rapidly, thereby increasing the demand for PCBs across the globe.

In addition, stringent regulations shape the market’s demand and supply dynamics. Stricter regulations on volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous substances can limit the use of certain raw materials and formulations. This can lead to a shift in market preferences towards eco-friendly and compliant products. For instance, the European Union’s REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals) regulation requires comprehensive data on the safety of chemical substances, pushing manufacturers to innovate and produce safer epoxy resin formulations.

Application Insights

The paints & coatings application segment led the market and accounted for a 37.41% revenue share in 2023. Epoxy resin-based paints & coatings are widely utilized in residential & commercial buildings, shipbuilding industries, automotive, and wastewater treatment plants, among others, owing to their excellent resistance to stains, cracks, extreme temperatures, blistering, and chemicals. They offer excellent adhesion, high anti-corrosion performance, and have low volatile organic compounds content. They are used to coat interior and exterior surfaces of commercial, residential, institutional, and industrial buildings. The application of these paints & coatings not only increases the aesthetic appeal of surfaces but also protects them from soaking rains, freezing winters, blistering summers, and UV radiation without them getting peeled, faded, or cracked.

Global Epoxy Resin Market share and size, 2023

Construction application is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 7.3%. In construction, epoxy resins are used as sealers, hardeners, grouts, mortars, and laminates for walls, roofs, and decks. Low water permeability, excellent cleaning material and chemical resistance, good mechanical properties, low cure shrinkage, and excellent adhesion are some of the properties that fuel the demand for epoxy resins in construction applications.
