The global Unsaturated Polyester Resins (UPR) market is projected to reach USD 12.15 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.78% from 2016 to 2021. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing applicability of UPR in boat & shipbuilding, manufacturing of wind blades, electrical windmills, automotive applications, sanitary wares, Fiber-Reinforced Plastics (FRP), and non-reinforced plastics.

Based on end-use industry, the building & construction segment is projected to lead the UPR market during the forecast period. In emerging economies, substantial investments are being made in the infrastructure sector, which, in turn, has propelled the development of the construction industry, thereby pushing the demand for UPR.

Based on type, the UPR market has been segmented into orthophthalic, isophthalic, DCPD, and others. The orthophthalic segment is projected to lead the UPR market during the forecast period, owing to its advantages such as low cost, toughness, and chemical resistance as compared to other types. These are commonly used in hulls and decks of boats, land  transport components, and molding, wind blade manufacturing, FRP structures, laminating resins, and in various other applications such as adhesives, buttons, castings, composites, encapsulation, flooring materials, gelcoats, filler pastes, pigment pastes, polymer concrete, putties, tooling, and fire-retardant & anti-corrosion coating.

Unsaturated Polyester Resins Market

Asia-Pacific and North America are the largest markets for UPR. The Asia-Pacific region leads the global UPR market, in terms of value and volume. China and India are major markets for UPR in the Asia-Pacific region. This growth can be due to the increasing applicability of UPR in varied industry verticals, owing to their high-strength fiber-based properties, easy availability, and low cost.

However, substitutes such as epoxy resin have better electrical properties and sustainability at high temperatures than UPR. They are preferred in applications wherein bonding, mechanical strength, and resistance to environment degradation are required. Vinyl esters, one of the substitutes, have better corrosion resistance, and their mechanical and thermal properties are much higher than UPR. Therefore, the acceptance of epoxy, vinyl ester, acrylic, and polyurethane resins is becoming a restraint for market growth.

Key players operating in the global UPR market include AOC LLC (U.S.), Ashland Inc. (U.S.), Reichhold Inc. (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), Royal DSM (Netherlands), Scott Bader (U.K.), and U-Pica Technology Group (Japan), among others. Companies have adopted strategies such as new product launches, expansions & investments, partnership & joint venture, and mergers & acquisitions to cater to the growing demand for UPR worldwide.
