Chapter 10 Primary Research – Key Findings

Tricyclodecane alcohol dimethanol (TCD Alcohol DM) is a polyhydric alcohol with two hydroxyl groups and belongs to the group of diols. It is manufactured through hydro-formulation of dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) and subsequent hydration of its dialdehydes. It functions as a starting material for various formulations. TCD Alcohol DM provides excellent transparency, elasticity, and harness to the final product. It is a suitable product for the preparation of high-performance hard surface coatings; for instance, as protective coatings in touch panels. It is used in UV coatings, UV inkjet inks, photoresists, and UV adhesives. TCD Alcohol DM is employed in downstream production processes such as UV cure coatings, UV inkjet inks, and UV adhesives. These, in turn, are used in building & construction and automotive sectors.

Rising demand for UV cured adhesives in flexible packaging is expected to drive the global TCD Alcohol DM market during the forecast period. Additionally, increasing demand for UV cured inks is expected to fuel the market growth in the near future. Proprietary Technology is a major restraint for the global TCD Alcohol DM market. Furthermore, research and development in the optoelectronics sector is expected to open new avenues for the global TCD Alcohol DM market in the near future.

In terms of volume, UV cure coatings was the largest application segment of the global TCD Alcohol DM market, accounting for over 40% in 2014. The UV cure coatings market is expanding significantly. This trend is projected to continue in the near future, majorly driven by high growth in Asia Pacific and intense efforts to promote eco-friendly products. UV cure coatings exhibit competitive performance as compared to conventional products. This, in turn, is expected to boost demand for TCD Alcohol DM in the next few years.

TCD Alcohol DM is used in the production of dimethacrylates that are employed in UV curing applications. Methacrylates possess good wetting properties. Thus, these are employed in pigmented UV curable inks. The global UV curable printing inks market is primarily driven by increasing demand from applications such as corrugated containers, flexible packaging, publication, commercial printing, and others. In addition, the publication and commercial printing segment is considerably high in developing economies across Asia Pacific. Furthermore, publication and commercial printing continues to be one of the major segments in developed regions such as Europe and North America. Thus, there is high demand for TCD Alcohol DM in UV inkjet inks; demand is anticipated to remain high due to high growth in the packaging market.

In terms of volume, Asia Pacific dominated the TCD Alcohol DM market in 2014, accounting for more than 35% of the global TCD Alcohol DM market. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional segment during the forecast period due to increasing environmental awareness coupled with growth in the electronics industry. Europe followed Asia Pacific in terms of demand volume in 2014. Rising demand from the industrial coating industry primarily in wood coating, paper coating, and plastic coating segments in Europe is expected to drive the TCD Alcohol DM market in the near future.

Currently, Oxea GmbH is the only producer of TCD Alcohol DM. The technology of producing TCD Alcohol DM is patented by this company. Thus, there is negligible scope of forward integration by raw material suppliers to produce TCD Alcohol DM. Dynamics of the TCD Alcohol DM market are expected to change once the patent expires by 2023. There is negligible threat of backward integration from buyers due to monopolistic nature of the market.
