Encapsulation Resins Market Trends

  • Growing adoption of electric vehicles (EV) is driving the market growth

Encapsulation resins are mainly used to protect electronic components and gadgets from harsh environmental factors as physical shock, corrosive air, chemicals, heat, and dust, among many others. These resins can be used to enclose a unit or only a single component completely. E-mobility is growing in popularity as a result of technical improvements. The performance of batteries is a difficulty for electric vehicle (EV) designers because heat can affect battery life. The electronic components must be protected to increase dependability and long-term performance in EVs. Encapsulation resin has many advantages for electric vehicles, including increased thermal endurance, higher thermal conductivity to distribute heat, and a decrease in expensive repair and maintenance. The sales of EVs worldwide in 2021 reached 6.75 million units, a 108% increase over 2020, according to the electric vehicle world sales database. This volume of sales includes both passenger vehicles and light trucks. The restrictions governing VOC emission and environmental consciousness have increased the demand for these resins in the automotive industry. These resins help the batteries operate more efficiently and have longer battery life by forming a protective layer around them. Encapsulation resin demand is therefore increasing as electric vehicle adoption grows.

Furthermore, the protection of electronic devices and components, including printed circuit boards (PCBs), electronic boards, sensors, capacitors, coils, transformers, power controllers, and filters, among many other electric devices, is greatly aided by encapsulation resin and potting components. These polymers help electrical components operate better while also shielding them from the hostile environment. These resins provide a wide range of advantages, such as protecting against saltwater immersion in maritime applications, chemical sensor protection in automotive applications, thermal recycling in aerospace applications, and long-term temperature exposure with household appliances. These have also been included in recent years into creating LED lighting fixtures for homes and businesses. According to the international energy agency (IEA), light efficiency improvements and the implementation of LEDs are progressing in 2021. LEDs account for about 50% of sales in the building lighting market. In addition, encapsulating resin is appropriate for the e-mobility sector and complies with a number of performance standards for automotive parts, as of late. As a result, the market is expanding due to the many advantages of encapsulating resin and its appropriateness for usage in a variety of applications. Thus, driving the encapsulation resins market revenue.

Panacol introduces its first line of adhesives made of black epoxy resin that cures in the UV. Vitralit® BL UC 1101, Vitralit® BL UC 1102, and Vitralit® BL UC 1103 are “Black&Light” adhesives that can cure in larger layers with only UV light, doing away with the requirement for a second curing mechanism. The room temperature shipping and storage of the Black&Light adhesives is another significant advantage. Traditional black, one-component epoxy adhesives need to be kept frozen or delivered cold.

A traditional UV adhesive's black hue absorbs a large portion of the UV curing energy.  This indicates that just a few micrometers are penetrated by the UV light energy needed to completely polymerize an adhesive. A surface "skin" forms as a result of this process, but the adhesive underneath it does not cure. Panacol's new black Vitralit® BL UC adhesives may be alone cured using UV LED light to achieve a thickness of more than 1mm. Black adhesives cure at their best thanks to Dr. Hönle's UV LED curing systems, which are precisely tuned to the absorption wavelengths of Black&Light technology.
