Gelcoat - Global Market Outlook (2018-2027)
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Gelcoat Market is accounted for $1.09 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach $2.54 billion by 2027 growing at a CAGR of 9.9% during the forecast period. Some of the key factors influencing the market growth include an increase in demand for gelcoat in the transportation industry, growing uses of glass fiber reinforced plastics across various end-use industries and rising demand for lightweight vehicles to increase fuel efficiency. However, the shift toward a closed molding process affecting the use of gelcoat is restraining the market growth.
Gelcoat is a high-quality finish on the visible surface of a fiber-reinforced composite. Gelcoats are modified resins which are applied to molds in the liquid state. Gel coated surface appears to be glossy after curing and offers superior properties such as flexibility, stiffness, strength, chemical resistance, corrosion resistance, weather resistance, and UV resistance, thus enhancing the durability of reinforced plastics substrate.
Amongst resin, the Polyester is the most widely used resin for gelcoat. Polyester resin is easily available and has a low price. It also offers various useful properties such as resistance to water and chemicals and low shrinkage. These properties enable the polyester resin-based gelcoat to be widely used in the marine and construction industries. Polyester resins used in gelcoats offer durability to molds and parts.
By Geography, APAC is a key gelcoat market. The booming transportation and construction industries are responsible for the growth of the gelcoat market in the region. China is one of the prominent consumers of gelcoat in the region. The country has become the single-largest consumer of gelcoat in the wind energy industry and is expected to strengthen its position further.
