Vinyl Ester Market Overview



The Vinyl Ester Market is calculated and valued at USD 783.8 million in 2018 and is also projected to reach the USD of 1,091.04 million during the forecast period with a CAGR of 4.2% from the year 2019 to 2026.


The Vinyl ester is an ester that is separated from the Vinyl alcohol. These are been formed by the esterification reaction between the epoxy resin and the unsaturated monocarboxylic acid. The main feature of the Vinyl ester is that it can absorb the impact caused and can stay without any damage.


The usage of the Vinyl ester is higher because of its nature to higher strength, corrosion resistance can withstand water absorption and also low viscosity. Due to its thermal stability, it is used in construction, pipes, tanks, transportation, paint and coating industry. Though it has many beneficiaries uses due to the easy availability of the substitutes for the Vinyl ester that hinder the vinyl ester market growth.


COVID Analysis


Due to the spread of the pandemic across the globe, several impacts have been created due to the lack of transportation and lack of labour. During the pandemic time, there was a limited quantity of production and a limited supply of raw materials for manufacture. As the whole process of manufacturing is been interrupted by the spread of the pandemic the manufacturing companies are working hard to produce the output and also which has led to an increase in the cost of the raw materials.


The increase in the cost of the raw materials and the increase in the cost of the products and the delay in delivering the products to the consumers are some of the major negative impacts which are created by the outbreak of the pandemic. Due to the outbreak of the pandemic, there is a great impact on the vinyl ester market size.


Market Dynamics


Crucial Market drivers

The rise in the growth of the vinyl ester market is because of the growth in the demand for pipes and tanks. This demand for the pipes and tanks which is made of the Vinyl Ester is because of its improved strength and chemical resistance which is needed to extend the durability of the pipes and tanks. Then this also has exceptional adhesion, fatigue resistance, impact strength, low shrinkage and chemical resistance which increases the durability in the long term.


The use of the Vinyl Ester in the railways, mass transit buses, marine industry and also in wind turbines are also the driving factors for the growth of the vinyl ester market share.


The market growth opportunities

The growth opportunity of the vinyl ester market share is because of the growth in the increase in the demand of the pipes and the tanks in the usage of the US marine industry, rise in the installation of the wind turbines in Europe. And also the increase in the demand of usage of the Vinyl Ester in the railways and the mass transit of the buses. It is expected that the Vinyl Ester is getting better growth in the forecast period because of the growth opportunities.


The market restraints

The main restraint that hinders the growth of the vinyl ester industry is the easy availability of the substitute things that are available in the market. Due to the low quality and low durability of the substitute products that are available in the market, people don’t get the proper awareness about the original and the duplicate which are the restraining factor that affects the market.


The market challenge

The challenge which is faced in the vinyl ester industry is the import and the export of the goods during the lockdown. Because of the lack of raw materials and lack of labour, delivering the goods was difficult. The late delivery of the goods to the customer due to the demand for transportation is also one of the challenges. Secondly, the increase in the demand for Vinyl ester products is one of the challenges. After the lockdown the increase in the demand for Vinyl ester products are tremendous, so the key players are working hard to compensate for the need of the customers.


Cumulative growth analysis


The overall growth of the vinyl ester market revenue has increased in recent days. After the spread of the pandemic, the demand was high. Because after the long gap, people started to get back to their work. Now there is an increase in the demand for Vinyl Ester products have raised. The increase in the need for pipes, tanks and paints are the major challenge of the key players. Even the use of the Vinyl Ester in the end-user like the oil and gas sector, refinery piping, crude oil transmission and subsea piping are the main source for the growth of the Vinyl Ester market.


Value chain analysis


The growth in the forecast period of the vinyl ester market has increased, due to the demand for Vinyl ester products in construction, and in various industries like transportation, wastewater treatment, pharmaceutical, food processing. These are the factors that create the demand for the growth of the vinyl ester market.
