Synthetic Resins are artificially synthesized resins, exhibiting characteristics similar to that of natural resins. They are viscous liquid having the ability to harden with the application of heat or pressure, or a combination of both. They are typically synthesized using a chemical polymerization process. Synthetic Resin market can be segmented into Decorative and Non-Decorative (Industrial) sector. This report incorporates the market of Industrial Synthetic Resin. 
One of the major driving factors for the growth of industrial synthetic resin is its growing application in automotive the industry. In the Automotive sector, there is increased application of lightweight components owing to regulatory taxes and duties, which could be prevented if the weight of finished products is kept under specified limits. As most of the lightweight components are manufactured using synthetic resins as raw material, the demand for synthetic resins is expected to boost in the coming years. In addition to this, surging demand from construction industries and rising demand for industrial and automotive coatings are creating a lucrative driver for market growth.
Geographically, the Industrial Synthetic Resin market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is anticipated to account for a majority share in the market owing to rising growth of automotive and construction industries. As around more than 50% of global capacity is in China, the country has become the leading producer of Synthetic Resin. To cater to the rising demand, manufacturers have planned to expand their capacity either by expanding existing production facilities or establishing new production facilities. Factors driving the growth of Synthetic Resin in the emerging markets of APAC include surging population base, growing industries and improving R&D sectors. In the Asia Pacific region, especially in China, where industrial and construction sectors account for almost half of the country’s GDP, rising construction activities are likely to drive the market for construction chemicals, paints, & coatings in its application. In addition, the demand for electronic items is expected to rise in the near future due to the rising disposable income of the middle-class population.
Industrial Resins are widely applicable in sectors such as paints & coatings, electronics, and construction. They are used for potting and encapsulating in electrical and electronics applications. In the past few years, Asia Pacific have witnessed growth in electrical and electronics segment. Leading manufacturers in the region are actively involved in the expansion of electrical & electronics industries. The availability of energy and skilled labour at competitive costs and rapidly increasing infrastructural activities are driving factors that enable key resin manufacturers in the region to expand their capacity.
Europe is the second-largest producer of Synthetic Resin with Germany dominating the market owing to surging demand from paints & coatings sector. In the coming years, the Europe Synthetic Resin market is anticipated to grow considerably, followed by North America, Middle East & Africa, and South America.
Based on resin type, the market is segmented into Phenolic Resin, Epoxy Resin, Polyester Resin, Acrylic Resin, Alkyd Resin, Amino Resin, Ketonic Resin, Polyamide Resin, and Others. Among Polyester resins, Unsaturated Polyester Resins (UPR) are commonly used in the production of fiber-reinforced plastics, and it also finds its application in coating and adhesives. It is anticipated that in the coming years, the demand for UPR will rise tremendously due to increasing infrastructural development. Further, a surge in the use of electric vehicles by consumers is going to boost the demand for UPR. However, due to outbreak of COVID 19 pandemic, the demand of UPR from pipes and tanks, transport and building & construction sector was significantly declined. This was attributed to the halted production and construction activities amid lockdown measures imposed by the government.
The demand for the Polyamide Resin majorly comes from electronics, automotive, textile and fiber industries. In addition to this, increasing penetration of e-books and the internet, rising adoption of magazines, books, and newspapers is anticipated to surge the demand for printing inks, which widely incorporates Polyamide Resin. Further, Epoxy Resins are widely used in paints and coating industry owing to excellent resistance, gloss, and color retention properties. Continuing demand from automotive industry after covid-19 coupled with rising focus on furnishing and renovation are expected to boost the sales of resins.
Based on end-use industry, the market is segmented into Construction Chemicals, Automotive, Adhesives, Furniture, Paints & Coatings, and others. The demand for Synthetic Resin is dominated by construction chemical and automotive sector and it is anticipated to maintain its dominance in the coming years. Construction chemical dominated the market on account of increasing demand from construction and restoration of the country’s road network and industrial estates. Further, rising Urbanization and Industrialization are propelling the demand for construction chemicals used in flooring, waterproofing, and roofing. In Automotive sector, Coating Resin is widely applied in automotive refinishing to enhance the appearance, repair, and restore the damage caused by the external environment. 
In 2020, Industrial sector was amongst the worst hit industries due to sudden Coronavirus outbreak. Several restrictions imposed due to pandemic hampered supply chain activities of both finished products and raw material availability. Due to the deployment of lockdown by government authorities, production factories were compelled to shut down. As a result, manufacturers suffered significant financial losses, and many were forced to close their operations. Demand from many sectors, such as the automobile and construction industry, has severely decreased amid the pandemic. In 2021, the economy recovered, the market growth post-pandemic observed an upward trajectory due to the increased demand from the downstream industries.
Some of the major players operating in the Industrial Synthetic Resin market are Sinopec Group (China Petrochemical Corporation), Covestro AG, Jiangsu Sanmu Group, SABIC, The Dow Chemical Company, Nan Ya Plastics Corporation, Kukdo Chemical Co. Ltd., Huntsman Corporation, Formosa Petrochemical Corporation, and others.
