DUBLIN, March 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Molding Compound Market - Global Forecasts to 2020" report to their offering.

The global molding compounds market by thermoset resin type is projected to grow from $8.04 Billion in 2015 to $10.96 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 6.40% between 2015 and 2020.

This market is majorly dominated by the electrical application. They are widely used in automotive and aerospace applications, as they are flexible and can be molded into complex shapes and sizes. The increase in the demand for corrosion an heat resistant products, improved electrification and need for safety at home and commercial building, encourages use of reliable components such as thermoset molding compounds in electricals that are heat resistant and thermally stable and availability of new innovative products are the factors driving the thermoset molding compounds market.

Rising need for thermally stable and corrosion resistant components will drive the molding compounds market by thermoset resin type for various applications

The major forces driving the thermoset molding compounds market are replacement of traditional materials thermoset molding compounds products. These products offer superior properties including corrosion resistance, heat resistance, and dimensional stability. Lightweight and increase in fuel efficiency have always been the foremost drivers for using thermosets in the automotive industry, the benefits of reducing the weight of a car or a truck include lower fuel consumption and operating costs, resulting in fewer emissions as well.

China contributes a major market share in the global as well as Asia-Pacific thermoset molding compounds market. The growing economy, industrial development with the availability of low-cost labor in the region, and the increasing demand of low-maintenance products are some of the factors driving the thermoset molding compounds market in Asia-Pacific.
