Bio-based Epoxy Resins Market Grows With Changing Consumer Preferences & New Opportunities

Bio-Based Epoxy Resins Market: Introduction

Epoxy resins are a class of advanced thermosetting resins that include a wide variety of crosslinking polymers, including unsaturated polyester resins, phenol-formaldehyde resins and amino resins. Bio-based epoxy resins are made from plant-based carbon in place of petroleum-based carbon. Bio-based epoxy resins employ green chemistry techniques which require less energy and produce less hazardous bi-products, thereby reducing the greenhouse gas emission from production of resins by 50%. Epoxy resins do not require the addition of volatile reactive diluents, such as styrene, which is a special concern material according to OSHA and ECHA. Epoxy resins have relatively better corrosion resistance and structural property. Stricter regulations for the application of styrene emissions by ECHA is creating lucrative opportunities for the growth of bio-based epoxy resins to be used in composites. That apart, manufacturers are also making efforts to replace petroleum-based feedstock with naturally occurring and environmentally compatible materials, which in turn, is expected to contribute to the growth of bio-based epoxy resins market during the forecast period.

Bio-Based Epoxy Resins Market: Dynamics

Bio-based epoxy resins exhibit certain properties which make them more attractive than other epoxy resins present in the market. Some of these properties are no nasty smell, relatively superior to petroleum based epoxy resins, low VOC, low odor, superior strength and UV resistance transparency. Thus, owing to the favorable properties exhibited by bio-based epoxy resins, the demand for bio-based epoxy resins is expected to propel during the forecast period.

Bio-based epoxy resins find various applications in the building industry as a floor or sealant cover and in adhesives and building materials. It also finds usage in the manufacturing industry; glass fiber products, such as rainwater tanks, marine crafts and electrical circuit boards, etc.; water repelling and adhesives & sealants, etc. Thus, due to the wide applications of bio-based epoxy resins, the sales of bio-based epoxy resins products is expected to increase during the forecast period, thereby leading to the growth of the global bio-based epoxy resins Market. In 2016, Sicomin, presented its full range of bio-based epoxy resins products at the JEC World exhibition held in Paris.

Growth in Electronic, Paints & Coatings Industry coupled with increasing use of Composites and Adhesives in various applications is expected to generate the demand of Bio-based Epoxy Resins thereby paving the lucrative opportunity for Bio-based Epoxy Resins manufacturers to increase their production capacity during the forecast period  Fluctuations in the prices of raw material required for the production of bio-based epoxy resins is expected to act as an obstacle to the growth of the bio-based epoxy resins market during the forecast period.
