Report Code: CMR 0824 Report Format: PDF + Excel

Bisphenol-A (BPA) Market Overview

Bisphenol-A (BPA) market size is forecast to reach $30.43 billion by 2030, after growing at a CAGR of 5.26% during 2024-2030. Bisphenol-A (BPA) is used primarily as an enhancer in polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins, a colorless crystalline material that is found in the Organic compound class. BPA is used primarily for polycarbonate processing, and growing demand is anticipated to be a significant market factor for polycarbonates in food and medical goods. In addition, rising building industry and increasing demand for BPA are estimated to further increase market growth in the automotive industry.

Concerns regarding the potential health risks associated with BPA have led to a significant shift towards BPA-free alternatives across various industries. This trend is particularly evident in the packaging sector, where consumers and regulatory bodies increasingly demand safer materials. Companies are investing in research and development to innovate and introduce BPA-free substitutes, such as BPS (bisphenol-S) and BPF (bisphenol-F), to meet market demands and comply with stringent regulations.

Another significant trend is the ongoing technological advancements in both the production and application of bisphenol-A. Continuous research and development efforts are focused on improving the efficiency, sustainability, and safety aspects of BPA manufacturing processes. Additionally, innovations in the application of BPA in various industries, such as packaging, construction, and automotive, are driving market growth. These advancements contribute to expanding the range of BPA applications, fostering its integration into diverse sectors while addressing environmental and health concerns associated with traditional BPA use.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the bisphenol-A (BPA) market, leading to fluctuations in supply and demand dynamics worldwide. As lockdown measures were enforced and economic activities slowed, the consumption of BPA, primarily used in the production of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins, experienced a notable decline. The disruption in manufacturing and logistics chains further compounded the challenges faced by BPA producers and suppliers. However, the pandemic also spurred certain shifts in the market, such as increased demand for BPA-based products in medical equipment and packaging applications, driven by the need for healthcare infrastructure reinforcement. Additionally, efforts to enhance hygiene and safety protocols prompted a surge in the use of BPA-containing materials for disposable medical supplies and food packaging. Despite these adaptations, the overall impact of COVID-19 on the bisphenol-A market underscored the vulnerability of the industry to global crises and highlighted the necessity for resilience and agility in supply chain management.
As economies recover and industries stabilize, the bisphenol-A market has rebounded, albeit with potential shifts in product applications and market trends driven by the lasting effects of the pandemic on global business practices.

Bisphenol-A (BPA) Market Analysis - Application

Polycarbonate Resins segment holds the largest share in Bisphenol (BPA) Market in 2023, is growing at a CAGR of 6.98% during forecast period 2024-2030. Polycarbonates are a high-performance thermoplastic commonly used to create and construct. Throughout a range of skylight and window uses, polycarbonate sheets may be used as a glass alternative. These are often known as opaque coverings, canopies, cross walls, façades, roofs for sporting facilities, roofs and roofing domes. These can also be used as opaque coverings. The usage of polycarbonate products in greenhouses in recent years has increased considerably. There are broad greenhouse growing areas throughout Europe, such as Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and France. Europe's urban industrial greenhouse sector accounts for nearly 25%.
The increasing popularity of polycarbonates is expected to drive the polycarbonate market during the forecast period due to their advantages over other standard materials (including glass and other plastics). In addition, polycarbonate is used in the automobile industry to retain strength, minimize weight, withstand shock for bumpers, restrict the explosion of danger through the usage of fuel tanks, seat belts, airbags, door and benches, subsystems, bumpers, components for under-bonnet, exterior trims etc. At present, 10 kg of polycarbonate is used in different ways to manufacture a standard four-wheel vehicle.

Bisphenol-A (BPA) Market Analysis - Geography

North America dominated the Bisphenol (BPA) Market share with more than 51% in 2023, followed by APAC and Europe. This year, BPA is widely used in infant bottles and used to line metal food containers with more than 2 billion pounds manufactured in the United States. According to the developments in glazing construction the steady growth of the trade industry, primarily in the construction of offices, is likely to have positive effects on the polycarbonate business. In the next few years, the country's office space demand is expected to rise almost by 10%, effectively growing the scale of the industry for Bisphenol-A (BPA). Throughout the past five years, demand has been rising consistently in the United States and automotive revenues have been steadily increasing.

This rapid development contributed to improved consumer demand for sunroofs, window frames, grips, inner lenses, handles of doors, headlight bezels, inner focus points and flammable radiator brows, which are being used in manufacture of polycarbonates. This emerging market for polycarbonates is expected to raise the Bisphenol-A (BPA) supply demand. The US Power Department plans to produce 404 GW of wind power by 2050. The rising market for composites fuels new developments including the production of low-cost carbon fibers and high-performance glass fibers.

Bisphenol-A (BPA) Market Drivers
