UV Curable Resins & Formulated Products: Introduction

  • UV curable resins & formulated products are polymerized and cured using the energy from UV radiations. The speed of curing of these resins is high. They can also be cured at lower temperatures. UV curable resins & formulated products do not emit odor and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), unlike solvent-based resins. They are widely used in applications such as printing inks, coatings, and adhesives.

Key Drivers of Global UV Curable Resins & Formulated Products Market

  • The market for UV curable resins & formulated products is expected to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period. Rise in demand for these products in coatings & 3D printing applications is driving the UV curable resins & formulated products market.
  • Stringent regulations regarding VOC emissions in Europe and North America and rise in demand for safe, eco-friendly, and sustainable products are likely to drive the demand for UV curable resins & formulated products during the forecast period
  • UV curable resins & formulated products are used in the production of inks, paints & coatings, and adhesives. They are also utilized as catalysts and stabilizers for the chemical production process. Furthermore, paints & coatings companies are continuously investing in research & development activities to introduce advanced solutions for various type of coatings. UV curable resins & formulated products play a significant role in the formulation of advanced coatings.

Waterborne Technology Segment to Dominate Global Market

  • Waterborne UV curable resins have been developed of late to reduce the use of VOC and reactive diluents. Water is used as a diluent or dispersing medium in these coatings, as it can decrease air pollution and improve occupational health and safety. It is easier to control the viscosity of water-based formulations.
  • Increase in demand for waterborne products is expected to boost the market share of the technology, owing to various government regulations on the use of solvent-borne products due to environmental concerns

Coatings Application Segment to Dominate Global Market

  • The coatings application segment is expected to continue to lead the UV curable resins & formulated products market, as the physical and chemical properties of the UV chemistry permit excellent gloss and viscosity control, and therefore, the application is easy with minimal or no process issues with VOCs/HAPs
  • The UV curing technology has outperformed the coatings market growth consistently over a period of time, and has turned out to be sustainable and high growth technology in the coatings industry. High demand for UV curable coatings can be primarily ascribed to their strong performance and excellent environmental & safety profile.

High Establishment Cost for Manufacture of UV Curable Resins to Restrain Global Market

  • High establishment cost of manufacturing plants of UV curable resins is a major restraint of the UV curable resins & formulated products market. The initial cost of formulating equipment can be higher than the cost incurred for conventional coating technologies. The UV curing machine is costlier than the conventional one. The intensity of this challenge is especially higher in Asia, as countries in the region are more cost sensitive.

Covid-19 Impact on UV Curable Resins & Formulated Products Market

  • Restricted trade and the shortage in supply of raw materials from China-based manufacturers due to COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in a severe demand-supply gap for various products including UV curable resins & formulated products. Manufacturers are expected to be stranded on raw material orders owing to the logistics industry being significantly impacted due to lockdowns amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Producers are anticipated to move away from China in order to lower the risks that would affect the business and reduce manufacturers' cluster in a single country in order to smoothen the supply chain

Asia Pacific to Hold Significant Share of Global UV Curable Resins & Formulated Products Market

  • In terms of region, the global UV curable resins & formulated products market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • Asia Pacific accounted for the major share of the UV curable resins & formulated products market in 2020. Evolving environmental & regulatory scenario, increasing consumer awareness, and pressure from flagship companies willing to improve the environmental performance of their supply chain have boosted the demand for UV curable resins & formulated products in Asia Pacific.
  • Growth in production of automobiles and rise in investments in building & construction activities are anticipated to augment the demand for UV curable resins & formulated products in Asia Pacific
  • Expansion of automotive and construction sectors in North America is expected to increase the preference for UV curable resins & formulated products in the region. Stringent regulations in North America and Europe and increasing environmental concerns are projected to propel the UV curable resins & formulated products in these regions.
