Coupling Agents Market by Type (Sulfur Silane, Vinyl Silane, Amino Silane, Epoxy Silane), Application (Rubber & Plastics, Fiber Treatment, Adhesives & Sealant, Paints & Coatings), and Region (North America, Europe, APAC) - Global Forecast to 2023
“Coupling agent market to register a CAGR of 3.5%, in terms of value (2018-2023)”
The coupling agent market is projected to grow from USD 516.6 million in 2018 to reach USD 614.1 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 3.5% between 2018 and 2023. The increasing demand for high-performance materials from the automotive, rubber & tire, aerospace & defense industries is one of the major drivers for the coupling agent market. The automotive manufacturers are focusing on increasing fuel efficiency and road safety. Depending on the requirements of OEMs, the use of coupling agents is increasing to reduce the rolling resistance and improve the traction on wet or slippery surfaces. The use of coupling agents-silica reinforced green tires instead of traditional tires can improve the fuel efficiency by 5%. The increasing use of plastics, fiber-reinforced plastics/composites, and coupling agent-reinforced tire can meet the fuel standards set by the US federal agencies and the EU. Hence, the coupling agent consumption in plastics, rubber, and fiber treatment is expected to increase significantly by 2023. The increasing demand for environmental packaging can have adverse effects on the demand for plastic packaging, which will act as a restraining factor for the coupling agent market during the forecast period.
“Sulfur silane is expected to be the largest type segment during the forecast period.”
Sulfur silane is estimated to be the largest type segment of the coupling agent market during the forecast period, in terms of value and volume. Sulfur silanes are used as coupling agents and have their major application in the rubber & tire industry. Sulfur silane coupling agents are also used in plastics and composites to improve the strength of the material. The growing demand for green tires has increased the demand for sulfur coupling agents. The demand for green tires is increasing as they provide better fuel efficiency and also because of the initiatives taken by many countries to decrease pollution and carbon emission.
“APAC is projected to be the largest as well as the fastest-growing coupling agent market during the forecast period.”
APAC is projected to be the largest market for coupling agent and is expected to register the CAGR, in terms of value, during the forecast period. The increasing population and the rise in spending are driving the automotive industry in APAC, which is expected boost the coupling agent market during the forecast period. North America is projected to be the second-largest coupling agent market. Coupling agents provide abrasion resistance, durability, good weather protection, and low maintenance to the products in which they are used.
