Market Segmentation:

MRFR’s segmentation of the Global Epoxy Resin Market has been performed on the basis of Type, Technology, Application, and Region.

Types of Epoxy Resins are segmented into glycidyl epoxy and non-glycidyl epoxy. Between these, the glycidyl epoxy segment has captured the most significant share of the market due to increasing use in automotive & building and construction industries.

By Technology, the Global Epoxy Resin Market is segmented into solvent cut epoxy, liquid epoxy, waterborne epoxy, and others. Among these, the liquid epoxy resin segment generated the most revenue at the start of the forecast period. However, the waterborne Epoxy Resin segment is on track to emerge at the fastest growing segment due to the rapid increase in the use of powder coatings.

Applications of Epoxy Resins can be found in automotive & transportation, building & construction, electrical & electronics, marine, adhesives & sealants, and others. The building and construction sector has developed rapidly to establish itself as a leader in the Global Epoxy Resin Market. Meanwhile, the automotive segment is growing rapidly and will likely display the highest CAGR during the review period.

Key Players:

BASF SE, Huntsman International LLC, Aditya Birla Chemicals, Ciech S.A, Spolchemie, Olin Corporation, and Kolon Industries, Inc among others have been profiled in MRFR’s competitive analysis of the Global Epoxy Resin Market.

Latest Industry News:

Wessex Resins has announced that it has begun manufacturing ENTROPY RESINS under license for European, Indian and Middle Eastern & African markets. These epoxy resins have bio-based formulations.

Carbon has announced reduced prices for its most popular Epoxy Resins namely, EPX 82, EPU 41, and RPU 70. The move is expected increase access to Epoxy Resins for consumers and lead to the development of new applications and new opportunities.

Market Insights:
