This is expected to boost the product demand globally.

U.S. epoxy resin market size, by application, 2018 - 2028 (USD Billion)

Asia Pacific has been the leading consumer of epoxy resins, fueled by increasing demand from China and India. Infrastructure development along with growing automotive production has fueled paints & coatings demand in the region. Rising 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, especially in emerging nations, such as China, India, Brazil, and Vietnam. 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 prices are expected to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.

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

Application Insights

The paints and coatings application segment led the market and accounted for more than 37% of the global revenue share in 2020. Epoxy resin-based paints & coatings are widely utilized in residential & commercial buildings, shipbuilding industries, automotive, and wastewater treatment plants among other applications 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 (VOC) 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 extreme temperatures and UV radiations, without them getting peeled, faded, or cracked.

Emerging regions, such as Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa, are witnessing significant growth in their non-residential sectors, including IT, telecom, and retail, resulting in an increased demand for paints & coatings. In addition, ongoing industrialization and high government infrastructure spending &Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs), especially in Asia Pacific, are expected to contribute to the product demand, thereby fueling the segment growth during the forecast period.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific dominated the market in 2020 accounting for the largest revenue share of over 59%. Rising construction activities and growing demand from the automotive sector in emerging countries, such as India, Japan, and South Korea, are expected to drive the market over the forecast period. Furthermore, the easy availability of raw materials has provided huge opportunities for the use of epoxy resin-based products in various end-use sectors.

China dominated the APAC regional market in 2020. The increasing number of infrastructure development projects and the growing manufacturing industry are expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. China’s construction market is likely to outperform other Southeast Asian countries, owing to government initiatives and funding to retain its development.

For instance, according to the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) in 2019, China government approved 26 infrastructure projects with a total expected investment of USD 142 billion. In 2020, the Communist Party of China announced that government is will invest around USD1.4 trillion for a digital infrastructure public spending program.
