Phenolic Resin Market by Type (Resol Resin, Novolac Resin), Application (Wood Adhesives, Molding, Insulation), End-use Industry (Automotive, building & construction, Furniture) - Global Forecasts to 2021
“Global phenolic resin market projected to register a CAGR of 5.8%”
The global phenolic resin market is projected to reach USD 15.01 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2016 to 2021. The growth is primarily due to the advanced properties of phenolic resin coupled with the growing automotive industry in the Asia-Pacific region. The factors restraining the growth of this market are the environmental regulations regarding the use of phenol and formaldehyde.
“Resol resin to be the largest type in the global phenolic resin market”
The market for resol resin is projected to be the largest by type in the global phenolic resin market from 2016 to 2021. Resol resin is the most widely used phenolic resin because of its enhanced properties such as, high heat resistance, high tensile strength, and excellent moldability. Moreover, the rising demand from the wood adhesives application is also leading to the high growth of resol resin in the global phenolic resin market.
“Wood adhesives to be the largest application of the phenolic resin market during the forecast period”
Wood adhesives are expected to be the largest application of the global phenolic resin market from 2016 to 2021. The high demand for the wood adhesives application is mainly due to the growing construction industry. Moreover, rapid urbanization and increase in remodeling & renovation, housing projects, and other woodwork is also driving the global phenolic resin market in the wood adhesives application.
“Asia-Pacific to be the largest and the fastest growing phenolic resin market during the forecast period”
The Asia-Pacific region is the largest phenolic resin market. Strong economic development, followed by substantial investments in industries such as, automotive, building & construction, furniture, and electrical & electronics is driving the phenolic resin market. With economic contraction and saturation in the European and North American markets, demand is shifting to the Asia-Pacific region. Moreover, the low cost of production is propelling the growth of phenolic resin in the region.
