Pune, India, December, 2017/MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future Published a Half Cooked Research “Global Epoxy curing agent Market Research Report - Forecast to 2023” - Market Analysis, Scope, Stake, Progress, Trends and Forecast up to 2023.
Epoxy curing agent Market – Market Overview
Epoxy is a colloquial name used for epoxide functional group. Epoxy resin is polymeric chemical compound consisting two of more epoxide groups. Curing agent is an additive that helps in toughening or hardening of a polymer material by cross-linking of polymer chains, brought about by electron beams, heat, or chemical additives. After curing, epoxy resin has excellent properties on mechanical strength, chemical resistance, and electrical insulation. The different types of curing agent available in the market are Amines, Polyamide, Imidazoles, Polymercaptan, Anhydrides, and Polymercaptan, among others.
The major applications of epoxy curing agent can found in coatings, construction, adhesives, composites, wind energy, electrical & electronics. The growth of the market is primarily driven by the growing construction activities, rapid urbanization and robust growth of composites market around the world. The emerging economies are investing significant share of their GDP in the infrastructural development, defence and marine sector. Coating is the largest application of epoxy curing agents with its major use in numerous industrial applications in order to protect the metal from corrosion and other harms.
Increasing global trade has fuelled the growth of transportation sector, which is anticipated to boost the demand of epoxy curing agent in automotive, marine and aerospace industry. Consumer electronics has witnessed exponential rise in recent decade and is expected to retain the same growth trajectory during the forecast period on account of growing penetration of telecommunication devices and rapid digitization. This is projected to help push the demand for the product in electronics industry. The light weight vehicles in automotive industry is likely favour growth of the market and the trend is expected to remain same during the years to follow. Increasing research & development activities along with growing focus on technological innovations expected to provide fuel for the growth of this market over the review period.
