Epoxy Resin Market 2
Epoxy Resin Market 2


The global epoxy resin market is likely to showcase a growth of around 7% during the forecast period. Epoxy resin is one of the crucial raw materials in the paints & coatings and adhesive industries due to its toughness, strong adhesion, chemical resistance, and other specialized properties. In the last couple of decades, the global paints demand increased significantly outpacing the world GDP growth due to an increase in construction activity, improving income, frequent repaint activity, and rising population. For instance, between 2004 to 2019, global paint demand grew at a CAGR of 5.5% whereas, for the same period, world GDP grew by 4.7%. Further, it is expected that the industry would showcase the same trend during the forecast period owing to increasing per-capita paint consumption in developing economies along with rising investment to boost the infrastructure sector. Since epoxy is widely used in the paints & coatings industry therefore it is expected that with the increase in paints demand, the market for epoxy resin would also grow. Further, increasing construction activities in developing economies is likely to boost the demand for adhesives, which eventually increases the consumption of epoxy resin for the manufacturing of epoxy-based adhesives.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst type, bisphenol-based epoxy resin held a prominent share in the market in 2020”

Based on type, the market is categorized into bisphenol, aliphatic, Novolac, halogenated, and others. Among these, bisphenol held a prominent share in the market and is expected to maintain a strong position during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its strong adhesion, toughness, and chemical resistance properties owing to which it is commonly used in the manufacturing of epoxy resin. Further, bisphenol-based epoxy resins in powder coatings also provide rust resistance which is very important to ensure a structure’s durability.

“Amongst physical form, solid category is likely to showcase substantial growth during the forecast period”


Based on physical form, the market is categorized into solid, liquid, and solutions. Of all, liquid resin accounted for a significant share of the overall epoxy resin market in 2020. This can be attributed to its wide usage in a range of applications due to its stability for a long time while simultaneously providing superior properties such as dimensional stability during cure, chemical resistance, chemical inertness, durability, and superior adhesion. Although, it is expected that during the forecast period, the solid category would showcase significant growth due to its increasing adoption in powder coating applications.

“Asia-Pacific accounted for a considerable share in the global epoxy resin market”

For a better understanding of the market adoption of epoxy resin, the market is analyzed based on its worldwide presence in the countries such as North America (United States, Canada, Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, UK, France, Italy, Spain, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Australia, and Rest of APAC), and Rest of World. Asia-Pacific accounted for a prominent share in the Epoxy Resin market on account of the presence of a large number of paints & coatings, adhesive, and composite manufacturers in the region in order to meet the growing regional demand. Further, the region is the largest consumer of paints & coatings, and adhesives that to be with low per-capita consumption compared to developed nations, thereby manufacturers find huge potential in the regional economies, as a result, opening or expanding their manufacturing facilities in the region.
