The global epoxy curing agents market size was valued at $4.9 billion in 2020, and epoxy curing agents market forecast projected to reach $8.4 billion by 2030, with global epoxy curing agents market forecast expected at a CAGR of 5.6% from 2021 to 2030.

Epoxy resin systems are divided into two parts: "A" side and a "B" side. The epoxy curing agent is found on the B side, commonly known as the "hardener," and is responsible for interacting with the epoxy groups in the epoxy resin A side. Curing agents react with epoxy resins to produce rigid, thermoset materials. Epoxy curing agents are of several types majorly amines, polyamides and anhydrides. The increasing demand of epoxy curing agents from the building & construction industry and new innovative developments in light-weight materials are the major factors driving the demand for the epoxy curing agents industry during the forecast period. The usage of lightweight materials in different industrial sectors, such as aerospace and automotive, is encouraged by strict regulatory rules and quality standards. Furthermore, epoxy curing agents are in high demand for the production of printed circuit boards (PCBs), which are utilized in a wide range of electronic goods, including mobile phones, smartphones, automotive electronics, equipment, and other consumer electronics. As a result, rising demand for epoxy curing agents as a lightweight raw material in a variety of industrial applications will continue to have a positive influence on epoxy curing agents market trend in the coming years. In addition, increase in demand for paints and coating in the construction sector, especially for flooring and interior painting will provide a good opportunity for the growth of amine-based epoxy curing agents. Due to excellent thermal and electrical insulating properties of epoxy curing agents and excellent mechanical properties, epoxy curing agents market is expected to possess high market growth due to rapid development in wind and solar energy and increase in demand for a variety of industrial tools around the globe. Due to rapidly increasing demand of epoxy curing agents across the globe, manufacturers are expanding their global footprints in order to gain increased customer base. For instance, in 2018, BASF SE, a German chemical firm that specializes in epoxy curing agents, has expanded its regional collaboration with Gustav Grolman GmbH & Co. KG, a specialty materials distributor, to sell amine-based curing agents for professional epoxy resin processing across Europe.

During the production of epoxy curing agents, manufacturers must follow strict regulations as it has toxicity effect, due to its VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) in nature that may lead to dermatitis. During the production, epoxy curing agents can also produce harmful gases that can cause global warming and pollution. Hence, manufacturers are practicing new innovative methods to reduce problems faced while manufacturing epoxy curing agents. This is a key restraining factor for the growth of epoxy curing agents market
