Global Unsaturated Polyester Resins Market 2017-2021

Global Unsaturated Polyester Resins Market 2017-2021

About UPR

Unsaturated polyester resins (UPRs) are synthetic resins formed by the reaction of a dibasic organic acid and a polyhydric alcohol. UPRs are thermoset resins that are capable of being recovered from a liquid or solid state. This type of resin is mostly used in the marine industry for manufacturing yachts and workboats.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global UPR market to grow at a CAGR of 5.86% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global UPR Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global UPR market: Ashland, DSM, BASF, Reichhold, and Polynt

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Scott Bader, Satyen Polymers, U-PICA, UPC Group, Tianhe Resin, Swancor, and Eternal Materials

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The increasing investments made by emerging economies toward infrastructural developments and long-term projects will influence the market's growth in the next five years. China, India, Brazil, and countries in the Middle East are likely to increase their expenses in the infrastructure segment. Currently, China is the leading market for UPR in the world in terms of consumption and production. The country's market is registering substantial growth due to the increasing investments in infrastructural development and construction projects. In addition, the demand for high-performance, high-quality UPR from end-users such as electrical and electronics, artificial stone, wind energy, and automotive sectors is steadily progressing. The building and construction segment has a strong foothold in the market with a 27% share. Increase in infrastructural activities in these regions directly augments the growth of the global UPR market.”

According to the report, epoxy resins have better electrical properties and sustainability at high temperature ranges in comparison to UPRs. Epoxies are preferred in applications that require properties like improved adhesive power, mechanical strength, and resistance to environmental degradation. Epoxy resins are generally used as adhesives, coatings, and casting materials in commercial and military aerospace applications. Aerospace applications include flooring panel, ducting, wings of an aircraft, and vertical and horizontal stabilizers. Epoxies offer high strength, low shrinkage, and good adhesion characteristics.

Further, the report states that one of the most vital challenges faced by the market is the need for styrene in the manufacture of UPRs. Styrene is a highly flammable and toxic material, which is harmful to human health. Styrene vapors can irritate the skin, eyes, and respiratory system, if not handled properly. The use of styrene is also restricted because of its unpleasant odor and worker exposure concerns. This challenge, however, can be overcome by developing a monomer-free UPR to reduce VOC emissions. Many companies are researching on this technology, and DCPD resins are increasingly being mixed with low-styrene-emission resins to decrease their emission levels. As such, the demand for DCPD resins over orthophthalic resins in the manufacture of sanitary ware, bathtubs, and wind blades has increased in regions such as North America and Europe.
