The impact of COVID-19 pandemic can be felt across the chemical industry. The growing inability in the production and manufacturing processes, in the light of the self-quarantined workforce has caused a major disruption in the supply chain across the sector. Restrictions encouraged by this pandemic are obstructing the production of essentials such as life-saving drugs
The nature of operation in chemical plants that cannot be easily stopped and started, makes the operational restrictions in these plants a serious concern for the industry leaders. Restricted and delayed shipments from China have created a price hike in the raw materials, affecting the core of the chemicals industry.
The slacking demand from different impacted industries such as automotive is negatively influencing the growth of the chemical industry. In light of the current crisis, the market leaders are focused to become self-reliant which is expected to benefit the economic growth of different economies in the longer term. Companies are triggering events to restructure and recover from the losses incurred during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Epichlorohydrin is a bitter smelling, colourless toxic epoxide volatile liquid. Epichlorohydrin is manufactured using allyl chloride, chlorine and water by passing it through several reactors and separation columns. Epichlorohydrin is primarily used in the production of epoxy resins, epichlorohydrin elastomers, water treatment chemicals, surfactants and resin for paper production. The wide range of applications of epoxy resins in industries such as paints, electronics, adhesives, automotive and construction are propelling the growth of epoxy resin industries which in return is contributing to the growth of global epichlorohydrin market.
Mostly epoxy resin manufacturing industries have the largest consumption of epichlorohydrin which is a prominent factor for the growth of global epichlorohydrin market. New eco-friendly technologies are being employed by the manufacturers for the production of epichlorohydrin like replacing the petro-based raw material (propylene) by bio-based raw material (glycerine).
The key drivers of the global epichlorohydrin market are the growth in the number of epoxy resin producers as epichlorohydrin serves as the key ingredient for manufacturing epoxy resin. From the epichlorohydrin market demand point of view the epoxy resin had the highest demand trailed by synthetic glycerine. With the growth of automotive industries the use of epichlorohydrin based rubber in the automotive industry is also increasing thus facilitating to the market growth of global epichlorohydrin market.
