Flexible Epoxy Resin Market Size, Share, Growth Analysis:

The Flexible Epoxy Resin (FER) market was estimated to be worth $ 685.4 million in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $ 854.0 million by 2026, with a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period 2021- 2026.

Flexible Epoxy Resin Market are the liquid resins that exhibit the characteristics of high elongation, high reliability and flexible toughness. Some examples of commercially available epoxy resins are modified urethane, modified rubber, dimer acid, etc. It is used in various industries such as paints and coatings, adhesives, composites, electrical laminates, tools, etc. It helps the industry in various ways, such as reducing mechanical stress in the bond line in the adhesive industry. In addition, it is used as an electronic pressure-sensitive device in the electrical industry. Flexible epoxy resins are used to make adhesives, sealants, coatings, composites, and flooring products, which are important parts of the building and construction industry.

Epoxy resin adhesives are used to make laminate woods for decks, walls, roofs and other construction applications, as well as other products that require strong bonds to a variety of substrates such as concrete or wood. These adhesives are more resistant to heat and chemicals than ordinary glues. In coatings, they provide high gloss, durability and protection to the applied surface. In flooring, flexible epoxy resins are used in decorative and high-performance floors, such as terrazzo floors and chip floors. In the automotive industry, flexible epoxy resins are used in coatings, adhesives and composites. In composites, flexible epoxy resins are used in the manufacture of lightweight components for use in structural, exterior and underhood applications. The superior chemical properties of flexible epoxy resins, such as strength, adhesion to metals and heat resistance, allow optimum use in the application of coatings in the automotive industry. These properties facilitate protective actions such as corrosion resistance, scratch resistance and escalating vehicle life. The high adhesive strength and improved properties also allow it to be used in adhesive applications in the automotive industry.

Flexible Epoxy Resin Market Trends:

Leading manufacturers are focusing on working with local players to improve their product offerings, as well as expanding their geographic footprint, is a major trend seen in the market today. One of the major trends identified in the global flexible epoxy resins market during the forecast period is the introduction of bio-based flexible epoxy resins in the market. Growing economic and environmental concerns, along with the uncertainty that accompanies limited petrochemical resources, have led to a rapid increase in research and development of bio-based polymers and epoxy resins in recent years. Commercial epoxy resins are synthesized from cycloaliphatic epoxides, DGEBA or diglycidyl ethers of Novolac resins. Renewable natural resources, such as starches and vegetable oils, have sparked interest as building blocks for polymers due to their environmentally friendly nature, low cost, and ability to break down epoxy easily, producing bio-based epoxy resins.

Recent Developments in the Flexible Epoxy Resin Industry:

In Sept 2021, Allnex, the leading supplier of specialty chemicalsis excited to announce the launch of PHENODUR® PR 616/65B, a new, eco-friendly phenolic resin recommended for interior and exterior can.

Flexible Epoxy Resin Market Drivers

There has been significant growth in the paints and coatings industry in developing countries in recent times. The paint and coatings industry includes decorative paints, which are mainly used for commercial and residential purposes, and industrial paints, which are used in end-use industries such as railroads, automobiles and the navy, etc. Coatings with excellent low-temperature flexibility typically consist of about 80% epoxy resin. The combination of awareness of environmental issues and harmful industrial processes as well as the depletion of petroleum-derived resources has prompted research into the development of materials from renewable resources. Therefore, flexible epoxy resins are widely used in the paint and coating industry. Flexible epoxy resins are widely used in adhesives, sealants, fiber-reinforced composites and in the electronics industry due to their outstanding surface properties such as ease of curing, low shrinkage, good humidity and excellent adhesion properties.
