The Middle East & Africa Epoxy Resins Market is forecast to reach US$2.3 billion by 2026, after growing at a CAGR of 5.7% during 2021-2026 due to robust growth in the construction industry across the Middle East & Africa region. Epoxy resins are used in a wide array of automotive, electronics, wind power, and other industrial application because of its toughness, strong adhesion, chemical resistance, and other specialized properties. Epoxy resin materials such as bisphenol A diglycidyl ether, glycidylamine, epichlorohydrin & bisphenol-A, and others are used in coating applications as they are suitable to apply at high room temperatures. Hence, increasing demand for epoxy resins from end-use sectors is expected to grow the market size during this forecast period. However, epoxy coating produces hazardous fume, which highly affects human health. Thus, such factors are estimated to limit the consumption of epoxy resins.
Impact of COVID-19
The tragedy of COVID-19, which is declared as a pandemic by the World Health Organization, is having a noticeable impact on global economic growth. This has affected the demand and supply chain as well, thereby limiting the growth in 2021. Thus, all pending activities are limiting the demand for epoxy resins.
Middle East & Africa Epoxy Resins Market Segment Analysis – By Raw Material
Aromatic glycidyl amines held a significant share in the Middle East & Africa epoxy resins market in 2020. Aromatic glycidyl amines offer excellent mechanical properties and high glass transition temperatures. Glycidyl amine epoxy resins are higher functionality epoxies produced by reacting aromatic amines with epichlorohydrin. Thus, it is suitable for aerospace applications. Apart from this, bisphenol-A diglycidyl ether is also widely used for epoxy resin coatings. Bisphenol-A diglycidyl ether is a flame retardant thus, it is mostly used in electrical applications. Hence, due to these properties, such resins are used as epoxy resins.
