Unsaturated Polyester Resins: The global unsaturated polyester resin market was valued at USD 7.17 Billion in 2014, and is expected to reach USD 9.87 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 5.59% between 2015 and 2020.

The market for unsaturated polyester resin is witnessing high growth owing to a number of factors, such as increasing resin applications in varied industry verticals, technological advancements, and growing demand of UPR in the Asia-Pacific region. Building & construction, pipes & tanks, and automotive industries make extensive use of various unsaturated polyester resins for making FRP fuel storage tanks, cooling tower components, beams, ladder rails, boat hulls, decks, and small production parts, both for interior and exterior product finishing. UPRís are also widely used as thermosetting resins with better product performance compared to other resins, such as epoxy, vinyl ester, acrylics, amides, and alkyd resins. Varied properties associated with unsaturated polyester resins include relative ease of manufacture, cost effectiveness, ease of processing for conversion into a finished product, and their ability to get readily modified for specific use.

The unsaturated polyester resins market has witnessed a significant growth in the recent years, and this growth is projected to persist in the coming years as well. Unsaturated polyester resins are divided into different types based on structures of their basic building blocks.

Major types of unsaturated polyester resins include orthophthalic, isophthalic, terephthalic, dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) and others (vinyl ester resins). The global demand of UPR is expected to be high across industries such as building & constructions, marine, transportation, wind energy and consumer goods for products and applications, namely sinks, shower stalls, pipes, tanks, gratings and high performance components for boats, buses, trucks, trailers, and automobiles.

Unsaturated polyester resin applications are dependent on requirements in terms of properties and availability of grades from manufacturers. Consequently, companies need to design their products as per the standards specified for various applications.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the biggest market for unsaturated polyester resins, accounting for a share of 49.00% in terms of value, in 2014. Among all countries, China dominates the unsaturated polyester resins market, and has held the maximum market share in 2014, closely followed by the U.S. Orthophthalic industry is the most dominant type of unsaturated polyester resins, followed by DCPD resins.

The unsaturated polyester resin market by end-user industry is broadly segmented into building & construction, marine, automotive & transportation, pipes & tanks, electrical & electronics, wind energy, and artificial stones among others. In terms of volume, the building & construction segment accounted for the largest share of 25.98% of the global unsaturated polyester resin market in 2014, while the market share for pipes & tanks was estimated to be 18.44%. Among all end-user applications of UPR, the wind energy segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 6.18% between 2015 and 2020, in terms of volume.

Increasing demand from emerging economies, such as China and India for polyester resin, growing middle class population, and low prices of UPR as compared to other epoxy resins are factors that drive the unsaturated polyester resin market in the Asia-Pacific region. In contrast to this, increase in styrene content and increasing usage of epoxy resins act as major restraining factors hampering its market growth.

Major players of the unsaturated polyester resin market include Ashland Inc. (U.S.), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), AOC LLC (U.S.), Polynt (Italy), Scott Bader Co. Ltd. (U.K.), and Reichhold Inc. (U.S.).
