Description

Specialty Resins Market: Industry Prospective

The global specialty resins market was worth around USD 7.85 billion in 2021 and is estimated to grow to about USD 13.94 billion by 2028, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 6.4 percent over the forecast period. The report analyzes the specialty resins market’s drivers, restraints/challenges, and the effect they have on the demands during the projection period. In addition, the report explores emerging opportunities in the specialty resins market.

Specialty Resins Market: Overview

Specialty resins are resins with unique qualities that are employed in a wide range of applications. Specialty resins are more expensive than regular resins due to their advanced features. Water resistance, chemical resistance, and severe temperature performance are all advantages of specialty resins. Specialty resins are essential elements in the production of a wide range of paints and coatings, which are subsequently utilized in a number of applications. Building & construction, marine, automotive, electronics, and furniture are all industries that employ specialty resins. These resins are also used to fabricate aircraft composites in the aerospace sector.

COVID-19 Impact:

The COVID-19 pandemic reshaped the world in terms of economic crises, healthcare emergencies, and the shutdown of industries. During the pandemic period, organizations in the specialty resins industry prioritized the health and well-being of their employees and workers. They stepped up their efforts to halt the spread of the coronavirus and preserve the health of their customers, tourists, and communities. These efforts affected the overall production of specialty resins in the global market. However, there have been no serious supply chain interruptions of top-tier players in the specialty resins sector in North America and some parts of Asian regions. Contractors in the specialty resins sector are keeping in regular contact with logistics service providers to minimize supply chain disruptions which are expected to streamline the market growth over the forecast period.

Specialty Resins Market: Growth Drivers

Increased demand from the construction and building industry may boost market growth over the forecast period.

As specialized resins offer strong heat resistance, wear resistance, high chemical resistance, and UV resistance, they are a material of choice for usage in the building and construction industry. The worldwide building sector seems to have a bright future which is significantly increasing the need for specialized resins. Building and construction are one of Asia Pacific's fastest-growing sectors. To satisfy the quality standards of the building and construction industry in the Asia Pacific, many projects are employing the use of specialized resins in sealants, adhesives, and coatings. Further, improvements in living standards, rising consumer disposable money, and increased urbanization are all key drivers driving building activity across the world. Temperature and chemical resistance are high in specialty resins. As a result, resins are expected to be utilized extensively in the construction of infrastructure projects, as well as housing and non-residential structures, in the coming years.

Specialty Resins Market: Restraints

Instability in Raw Material Prices may hinder the market growth.

The market's expansion may be hampered by price volatility in materials. Silicone, amino, polyester, acrylics, polyurethane, and other coating resins are synthetic compounds generated from crude oil. As a result, crude oil price fluctuations may limit material production and stifle market expansion in the future. According to BP Statics, the average oil price rose to USD 71/bbl in 2018 from USD 54/bbl in 2017 but then dropped to USD 64.21/bbl in 2019. The global specialty resins market is being hampered by such variability.

Specialty Resins Market: Opportunities

The large scope for specialty resins from the water & wastewater treatment industry is expected to offer better market growth opportunities.

Over the last few years, the worldwide wastewater treatment sector has grown substantially. Only 60 percent of industrial wastewater is treated, and over 40 percent of the processed water does not meet the required criteria. In the case of municipal wastewater, the situation is critical, since urban water treatment facilities can only process 37 percent of the sewage created. In the purification of water, ion exchange resins are crucial. Acrylic acid and the crosslinking agent divinylbenzene are commonly used to make these. Ion exchange resins are made from methacrylic acid or its derivatives by some producers. They're commonly utilized to de-alkalize water in demineralization facilities. These factors suggest an increasing need for specialty resins in the wastewater treatment sector.
