High Performance Epoxy Market Overview
The High-performance epoxy market is expected to reach USD 15.23 billion by 2030 and is expected to register a CAGR of over 5.83% during the forecast period. High-performance epoxy provides high gloss and protection to concrete and rigid surfaces. Its features include chemical resistance, low odor, high film-build, and protection against oils, cleaners, fuels, solvents, and water. High-performance epoxy has wide application in manufacturing plants, pharmaceutical plants, warehouses, food processing areas, hospitals, industrial facilities, and garage floors. In May 2019, Polytek Development Corp, a leading manufacturer of specialty polymers, announced the expansion of its high performance epoxy production capacity at its plant located in the US to meet the growing demand across the globe.
High performance epoxy is produced using the formulation of various polymers, hardeners, and grade fillers for its application in floor coatings. The application of high performance epoxy in industrial and commercial flooring has increased on account of its ability to enhance the durability and aesthetics of the floor. According to the European Coatings Association, the global floor coatings market is expected to reach around USD 11 billion by 2030. Technological advancements and high demand for floor coatings are expected to fuel the demand for high performance epoxy in floor coatings.
High performance epoxy is widely used in the electronics industries owing to the unique electrical and mechanical properties. It’s the ability to protect against chemicals, and high temperatures make it an ideal application for electrical components to protect against dust, short circuits, moisture, providing higher thermal conductivity than air. The growing consumer electronics industry, along with the rising affordability among the middle-class population, have increased the sale of electronics in developing countries. For instance, the Indian consumer electronics industry is expected to reach approximately USD 47 billion and register a CAGR of 13% by 2020. Moreover, increasing expenditure on smartphones with innovative and technologically advanced features coupled with growing per capita disposable income has resulted in the rising demand for durable and technologically advanced smartphones. This rise in smartphones production is expected to increase the demand for high performance epoxy during the forecast period.
