Why are Amines and Polyamines Gaining Traction?

Various types of epoxy curing agents, such as amides and polyamides, amines and polyamines, phenolic, and anhydrides, find numerous applications across various industrial sectors. Increasing demand for amines and polyamines in most industrial applications is leading to account for over 48% revenue share in the epoxy curing agents market.

However, owing to stringent regulatory norms due to harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emissions vis-à-vis amines and polyamides, end-users in the epoxy curing agents market are shifting to amide and polyamides. Thereby, amines and polyamines are likely to lose their market share to amides and polyamides in the upcoming years.

Why is Automotive & Aerospace the Primary End Use Industry for Epoxy Curing Agents?

Increasing demand for incorporating lightweight material in accordance with stringent government regulations to improve performance efficiency is compelling manufacturers of automotive & aerospace components to include epoxy curing agents.

According to estimates by Fact.MR, the segment is expected to register a revenue share worth 65% across the 2021-2031 forecast period. Manufacturers are likely to find immense growth opportunities in the Asian region, as these are the emerging hubs for automotive manufacturing.

Competitive Landscape

Prominent manufacturers of epoxy curing agents primarily emphasize on launching new epoxy curing agents, forging strategic partnerships and alliances, as well as acquiring existing players.
