Composite Resin Market

Resins work as a glue to hold the fibers together and protect the fibers from mechanical and environmental damage. There are two major groups of resins. These include thermosets and thermoplastics which are made of polymers (large molecules made up of long chains of smaller molecules). Polyester, epoxy, vinyl ester, and polyurethane are examples of common thermosets resins. Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, polyethylene, polystyrene, and polycarbonate are typical thermoplastics resins.  

In the context of composite materials, resins are an important component that serve as the matrix material to hold together the reinforcing fibers or particles. The resin used in composites can be made from a variety of materials, such as epoxies, polyesters, vinyl esters, and thermoplastics. The resin is typically chosen based on its properties and compatibility with the reinforcing material. For example, epoxy resins are often used with carbon or glass fibers, while polyester resins are commonly used with fiberglass.

The resin in a composite plays an important role in determining the overall performance of the material. It provides strength and stiffness, as well as resistance to impact, heat, and moisture. The resin also affects the processing of the composite material, such as its curing time and temperature. One of the challenges in using resins in composites is achieving a good bond between the resin and the reinforcing material. This can be improved by surface treatment of the reinforcing material or by using coupling agents that enhance the adhesion between the two materials. Overall, the choice of resin is an important consideration in the design and production of composite materials and can greatly impact their performance and properties.

The global composite resins market is driven by a surge in demand for composite resins in the aerospace sector as composite resins have many applications in the aerospace industry due to their high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent durability, and resistance to heat and corrosion. One of the major drivers of market expansion is the rise in the  use of composite resin in the building and construction industry, as well as in aerospace and military applications.

Another element driving the market growth is the demand for lightweight materials in the transportation sector, which in turn increases fuel efficiency. Furthermore, the rise in demand for thermoplastic resins is imposing a positive outlook on the growth of the market. On the other hand, the high cost associated with manufacturing and the challenges in recycling limits the growth of the market.   

Increase in Demand for Composite Resins in Several Industries

Composite resins are gaining popularity in several industries due to their unique properties and versatility. These materials are made by combining two or more different materials to create a stronger and more durable product. Here are some industries where composite resins are in high demand:

Automotive industry: Composite resins are used to make lightweight and strong parts for cars, such as body panels and engine components. They are also used in the production of aircraft and other transportation vehicles.

Construction industry: Composite resins are used in the construction of buildings, bridges, and other structures. They are used to reinforce concrete, to create lightweight panels for walls and ceilings, and to make composite decking.

Marine industry: Composite resins are used to make boats, ships, and other watercraft. They are highly resistant to corrosion, water damage, and UV radiation, making them ideal for use in marine environments.

Sports equipment industry: Composite resins are used to make lightweight and durable sporting goods such as tennis rackets, golf clubs, and skis. They offer excellent strength and stiffness properties, as well as resistance to impact and vibration.

Medical industry: Composite resins are used in the production of dental fillings, implants, and prosthetics. They are biocompatible, which means they do not react with the human body, and can withstand the harsh conditions inside the mouth.

Thus, composite resins are gaining popularity in various industries due to their unique properties such as strength, durability, and lightweight. The market is expected to witness innovative applications in the future with the growing demand for these materials.

  • The COVID-19 outbreak has had a significant impact on the composite resins market, as it has affected the supply chain, production, and demand for these materials. The pandemic has disrupted global trade, causing supply chain disruptions, raw material shortages, and transportation delays, which have resulted in increased prices and reduced availability of composite resins.
  • The closure of manufacturing facilities and reduced demand for end-use products due to lockdowns and economic uncertainty have also affected the demand for composite resins. The construction, automotive, and aerospace industries, which are major end-users of composite resins, have been particularly affected by the pandemic, resulting in reduced demand for composite resins.
  • However, the impact of the pandemic on the composite resins market has not been entirely negative. The pandemic has led to increased demand for medical equipment, such as ventilators and personal protective equipment, which require composite materials. This has created new opportunities for composite resin manufacturers and suppliers.
