Epoxy Resins Market: Global Competitive Landscape – Key Takeaways 

Some of the leading market players in the global epoxy resin market are DowDuPont, Nan Ya Plastics, BASF SE, Hexion, and Huntsman. Here are some of the important insights from the aforementioned market leaders – 

  • DowDuPont – 

In the second quarter of 2018, the company’s net sales increased by 17% to $24.2 billion with double-digit growth in all the segments including performance chemicals that include epoxy resins. According to their 2017 annual report, the market revenues were increased from $6.4 billion in 2016 to $8.7 billion in 2017. Furthermore, Forbes forecasts it to grow to more than $10.5 billion by 2019. The IndustryARC analyst notes that the demand for adhesives and sealants, construction materials, cellulosic-based construction and raw materials for architectural paints and industrial coatings is a major driving factor that are catapulting the sales in the segment. DowDuPont has a patent epoxy resin system named VARAFORCE, which is a successful product used in carbon fiber or glass fiber composite parts for mass reduction purposes.  

  • Nan Ya Plastics – 

Nan Ya has been a leading player in thermosetting polymers and epoxy resin market since long, with its continuously growing production that valued at 18000 MT in 1988 and raised to more than 461,000 MT in 2015. Their production has been on the rise to date. The Company has two production plants in Taiwan (Shulin and Mailao) and two in China (Kunshan) and offer a wide range of epoxy resin products such as BPF epoxy resin, liquid epoxy resin, solid epoxy resin, and some other polymers, prepolymers, and fiber-reinforced plastics. These products are used in industrial coatings and as structural adhesives. 

  • BASF SE –

On March 15, 2018, BASF SE announced to increase the price of epoxy-based Master Builders’ Solutions products sold under the brand name of Master Top in Europe by 10%. This was chiefly attributed to the global increases in raw materials for epoxy-based construction systems product. Their construction chemicals division that includes epoxy resin products observed sales of about $2.4 billion in 2017. 

  • Hexion Inc. –

Hexion Inc. is a chemical company that produces thermoset resins and other related technologies and specialty chemicals. It has two divisions – the epoxy, phenolic coating resins division and the forest products division. According to their annual report 2017, the organization observed the net sales for the quarter that ended on December 31, 2017, as $895 million which is an increase of 18% as compared to $785 million in the year prior to it. This increase in sales is predominantly because of the signification profit in epoxy resin and some other specialty chemicals. Even though the raw material cost of epoxy resin has raised, the volume-gain has shown an increment. Their fourth quarter reflects an enhanced demand resulting in year-over-year gains in the epoxy resin segment. 

  • Huntsman Corp. –

Huntsman has been an innovator in the epoxy resin sector for more than 60 years now, and they offer a diverse range of epoxy resin products. The company observed an impressive revenue of $8.36 billion, some of which is due to the recovery in the sales of epoxy resins due to the increase in demand. The company offers a gamut of products in epoxy resins. They manufacture Bisphenol-A based epoxy resins that are used in automotive coatings or other applications. Their products are also used in the manufacturing of industrial coatings that are used in construction which is a major driving force for epoxy resin market growth. Their epoxy resin products are also widely used in other applications like insulation in medium and high-voltage electrical systems, filament winding, and vacuum pressure impregnation which are industrial applications and have great profit margins. 

Other companies generating remarkable revenues from the epoxy resin market are Jiangsu Sanmu Group, Changchun Chemicals, Aditya Birla Chemicals, Ciech S.A., and Dalian Qihua. 

Major Factors Driving the Epoxy Resins Market Revenue in the Companies –
