LONDON, June 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the epoxy curing agent in the global composites industry looks good, with opportunities in the aerospace, pipe and tank, and wind energy applications. Epoxy curing agents are chemically active compounds those help in resin formulation and promote cross linking reaction to form a rigid thermoset structure. The epoxy curing agent in the global composites industry is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% by value from 2015 to 2020. The major drivers of growth for this market are growth of end-use industries and increasing use of high-performance epoxy-based composite materials.
In this market, aliphatic, cycloaliphatic, aromatic, dicyandiamide, and anhydride are the major products used as curing agents in the global composites industry. Aliphatic is the largest product segment and is expected to remain the same during the forecast period. Lucintel predicts that the demand for aromatic is expected to experience the highest growth rate in the forecast period supported by growing demand for high performance composites in aerospace applications.
Asia Pacific is expected to remain the largest market due to growth of composites industry. North America is expected to show above average growth during the forecast period due to increasing demand for high-performance epoxy-based composites in the aerospace, wind energy, and other end use industries.
For market expansion, the report suggests innovation and new product development, where the unique characteristics of epoxy curing agent can be capitalized. Some of the innovation areas in epoxy curing agent could be in the lowering of curing time, increasing pot life, and lowering the heat of exothermic reaction. Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include development of epoxy curing agents which are less hazardous to human health and have faster cure, and improved performance characteristics. Air Products, BASF SE, Huntsman, Momentive, and Dow Chemicals are among the major players of epoxy curing agent in the global composites industry.
