Global Bisphenol S Market: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Technology, Demand & Supply, Application, End Use, Region, Competition, Trade, Customer & Price Intelligence Market Analysis, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Dec 2020

Global Bisphenol S market has grown tremendously in the past five years and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 11.50% during the forecast period. Bisphenol S is an organic compound which is being used due to rise in demand for the better alternative for Bisphenol A. Bisphenol S has been scientifically proven to be less harmful than Bisphenol A. BPS is gaining momentum & replacing BPA in thermal paper manufacturing and epoxy production across the globe. The key advantages of Bisphenol S are that it is less acidic as compared to Bisphenol A. Even though the awareness about this product is increasing, the product supply is surplus in comparison to the demand generated. Also, the companies are currently operating at lower rates due to uncertainty in demand potential owing to current pandemic situation.  
The product Bisphenol S has a variety of applications as Heat Sensitive Developers, Polymer Modifiers, Flame Retardants, Water Soluble Resins, Thermosetting Resins and also for the production of different intermediates. More than 42% of the demand is generated by Heat Sensitive Developers that is used for the manufacture of Thermal Papers. Amongst all these end users, majority of the demand for BPS is generated by thermal paper across the globe. Increasing demand for online purchasing coupled with increasing importance of labelling in food & beverage industry is promoting the use of thermal papers, which in turn is driving BPS consumption. Increasing use of epoxy resins to give specific aesthetic to a place, has catalyzed the BPS demand. Polyurethane systems have been associated with offering strength, durability and resilience while dealing with challenging conditions such as heavy footfall, physical impacts, extreme temperatures and corrosive chemicals. These offerings by PU resins are driving the BPS market growth.
The demand for Bisphenol S has recently taken an exponential pace in European market as various health hazard possessed by Bisphenol are escalating, environment regulators in Europe are gradually imposing ban on consumption of Bisphenol A. BPA is on the EU’s candidate list for its reprotoxic and endocrine-disrupting properties and was subject to an EU ban in 2016, effective from 2020.
In North America, Bisphenol S has been listed as an indirect food additive to be used as monomer in the production of polyether sulfone resins. Solvay manufactures Bisphenol S for thermal paper manufacturers and is also using it as an intermediate in sulphone polymers to cater to the growing demand for thermoplastics from automobile, aerospace, and electronics sectors. USFDA has already amended its regulations to no longer provide for the use of BPA-based polycarbonate resins in baby bottles and sippy cups as well as BPA-based epoxy resins as coatings in packaging for infant formula which is in turn driving the demand for BPS.
Asia-Pacific BPS market is expected to grow at a strong growth rate during the forecast period as the region has become a manufacturing hub for polymers, plastics and electronics. According to World Bank’s report, despite the slowdown of global economy and COVID-19 pandemic, the region is expected to witness comparatively better growth in economy. Government initiatives such as ‘Make in India’, bringing Japanese manufacturing back in country or Vietnam’s growing industrialization is creating future growth path for BPS manufacturers in Asia Pacific region.
However, anticipated that spurt in the global demand as several economies ramp up their manufacturing units to cater to the exponential rise in consumer demand would further accelerate the market growth in the forecast period

Bisphenol S is a crude oil derivative and hence its price is directly linked to the fluctuations in phenol. Volatility in the prices of phenol has remained a major challenge for Bisphenol S manufacturers since a long time. Bisphenol S prices remained under pressure in the first half of the year weighed over by an unprecedented fall in crude oil and demand slowdown during Q1FY20 and Q2FY21. Bisphenol S CFR China prices were assessed around USD XX per MT on spot basis in Q2FY20.
To extract data for Global Bisphenol S market, primary research surveys were conducted with Bisphenol S manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, wholesalers and end users. While interviewing, the respondents were also inquired about their competitors. Through this technique, ChemAnalyst was able to include manufacturers that could not be identified due to the limitations of secondary research. Moreover, ChemAnalyst analyzed various end user segments and projected a positive outlook for Global Bisphenol S market over the coming years.  
ChemAnalyst calculated Bisphenol S demand globally by analyzing the historical data and demand forecast which was carried out considering imported styrene prices, a monomer used for production of Bisphenol S. ChemAnalyst sourced these values from industry experts and company representatives and externally validated through analyzing historical sales data of respective manufacturers to arrive at the overall market size. Various secondary sources such as company websites, association reports, annual reports, etc., were also studied by ChemAnalyst.
