Curing Agents Market Research, 2031

The global curing agents market size was valued at $11.3 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $22.2 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7.0% from 2022 to 2031.

Curing agents are utilized to harden a substance or surface. They are applied to polymer surfaces in order to bind the molecular components; the stronger the bond, the harder the material's surface. Their primary function is to improve the material's hardness or viscosity. They include active hydrogen-containing compounds, anionic & cationic initiators, and reactive cross-linkers. In can & coil, protective, marine, ornamental, and general industrial coatings, curing agents are utilized. Curing agents are used in primers to improve the adhesion quality of coated components in marine and other applications, particularly on metal surfaces where corrosion and chemical resistance are necessary to prevent damage and wear.

The curing agents market is segmented into type and end use industry, and region. Depending on type, the curing agents industry is categorized into epoxy, polyurethane, silicone rubber, and others. On the basis of end-use industry, the market is categorized into paints & coatings, building & construction, electrical & electronics, composites, and others. On the basis of region, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
