epoxy hardener market growth forecast by application

Epoxy Hardener Market Analysis by Type

Controlling the cure timing of epoxy hardeners is one of the important aspects that must be taken into consideration while mixing hardeners with resins. Fast epoxy hardeners require shorter time to settle as compared to other alternatives. However, slow and special clear hardeners require a longer time duration to settle with epoxy resins; ultimately, the settling time depends on application usage of the hardener.

Being used for general bonding, applying fabric, and barrier coating, the fast epoxy hardeners segment is expected to create absolute $ opportunity of around US$ 490 Mn over the forecast period. Furthermore, special hardeners are also used in applying fabric, clear finish, general bonding, and barrier coating in electrical & electronics, power, and marine industries. This segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.5% through 2030.

Analysis of COVID-19 Pandemic on Epoxy Hardener Market

Nearly all countries have imposed lockdowns and strict social distancing measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has disrupted production at the plants of key-end user companies across the globe. Consumer electronics and construction industries are important end users of epoxy hardeners. A decline in production has limited the market scope for epoxy hardeners. The pandemic has also generated massive disruptions in demand-supply across multiple industries, causing a global economic meltdown.

North America is one of the most affected regions by the recent COVID-19 outbreak, which has caused a decline in demand for consumer electronic products. This has subsequently decreased the demand for epoxy hardeners. Currently, European countries such as Germany, Italy, and the UK are some of the most affected countries by coronavirus, which will negatively affect market growth in the short term.

It is imperative to note that, these aforementioned regions have experienced a stiff decline in demand for epoxy products as an aftereffect of halted construction activity and paused demand from the marine and automotive industry. A second wave of coronavirus cases in eased-up regions would hamper the market over the coming period.

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

The Analyst’s Viewpoint

“Progress of the epoxy hardener market is set to gain traction as an aftereffect of growing end-use industries such as consumer electronics and construction.”
