Chemistry - Segment Analysis

Alkylating agents segment holds the largest market share in the crosslinking agent market. Alkylating agents are compounds that work by adding an alkyl group to the guanine base of the DNA molecule, preventing the strands of the double helix from linking as they should. This causes breakage of the DNA strands, affecting the ability of the cancer cell to multiply. Eventually, the cancer cell dies. Alkylating agents were one of the first classes of drugs to be used against cancer. Trabectedin is classed as a tetrahydroisoquinoline alkaloid, and unlike traditional alkylating agents, it binds to the minor groove of DNA and alkylates guanine at the N2 position. Alkylating agents are effective during every phase of the life cycle of a cancer cell, which means they are effective for treating a wide range of cancers. They are most effective for treating slow-growing cancers such as leukemia and solid tumors, but are also used in the treatment of breast, lung, ovarian, and prostate cancers. 

Application - Segment Analysis

Industrial Coatings has been the primary market for Crosslinking Agent for many years. Due to increase in the global spending, the consumption of Crosslinking Agent has always been considerably high in automotive application in comparison to other applications. Because of the continuous requirement of coatings in the transportation sector i. e vehicles of different types, So the market will always remain healthy. At the coating surface, where oxygen is present, aerobic cure takes place below the surface, where no oxygen is present, anaerobic cure occurs. Below the surface, curing occurs much faster than above since oxygen is a good free radical scavenger.  Therefore, key to achieving uniform and complete cure is the elimination of oxygen at the surface either by mechanical means, such as inerting the atmosphere with nitrogen, or by chemical means, through the use of metal driers and monomers that are good oxygen scavengers.

Geography - Segment Analysis

APAC dominated the Crosslinking Agent market with a share of more than xx%, followed by North America and Europe. Countries such as India, China are the major market for Crosslinking Agents, owing to the larger area and higher population. Because of the large population and constant requirements of public demand, these countries will be considered to be the great markets. Whereas increase in demand for paints and coatings market, construction & building sector will also increase and owing tot that the overall market demand for crosslinking agent market will grow. Few of the governments’ regulations towards construction of homes for poor people will further increase the demand for crosslinking market.  

Drivers – Crosslinking Agent Market

Growing demand for other applications

As the coatings market itself is a greater market. So there are various no. of applications in the coatings market which are namely decorative coatings, different types of industrial coatings. Decorative coatings is another market which is growing very nicely and is expected to witness and increase in demand in the forecast period.  
Whereas different industrial coatings which are wood coatings, protective coatings with others demands are also increasing in the market day by day.

Implementation of Stringent Environment Regulations

Implementation of stringent government regulations related to Construction or infrastructure will increase the market demand for Acrylic Emulsions in the near future. In India government launches Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) Mission launched on 25th June 2015 which intends to provide housing for all in urban areas by year 2022.  The Mission provides Central Assistance to the implementing agencies through States/Union Territories (UTs) and Central Nodal Agencies (CNAs) for providing houses to all eligible families/ beneficiaries against the validated demand for houses for about 1.12 cr. As per PMAY(U) guidelines, the size of a house for Economically Weaker Section (EWS) could be upto 30 sq. mt. carpet area, however States/UTs have the flexibility to enhance the size of houses in consultation and approval of the Ministry.
