Vinyl Ester Resin (VER) Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Grade, Sales Channel, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2035

Format: Online | Last Updated: Nov 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] The Vinyl Ester Resin (VER) Market has shown considerable growth as its demand reached 0.78 million tonnes in 2020 and is expected to grow at an impressive CAGR of 6.30% in the forecast period until 2035. Vinyl Ester Resin (VER), also referred to as Vinyl Ester, is obtained by the esterification of an epoxy resin with acrylic or methacrylic acids. This product, i.e., VER, acts as a crosslinking agent and helps to improve adhesion to glass fibers. VER has lower resin viscosity and is comparatively more expansive than Polyester and epoxy. Vinyl Ester Resins are more reliable and durable by virtue of their greater strength, low permeability, robust mechanical properties, and abrasion resistance.
Vinyl Ester Resins are widely utilized in repair materials and laminating as they are waterproof and have great mechanical properties. The Glasair and Glastar kit in homebuilt airplanes made extensive use of Vinyl ester fiberglass-reinforced structures. It is a commonly used resin in the marine industry due to its corrosion resistance properties and ability to withstand water absorption. VER also finds its application in the manufacturing of FRP tanks and vessels as per BS4994. 
On the basis of grade, the Vinyl Ester Resin market is segmented into Bisphenol A based VER, Bisphenol F based VER, and Novolac F Based VER. Bisphenol A segment dominates the VER market around the globe due to its usage in several chemical applications and flue gas desulfurization (FGD) processes. Bisphenol A based VER is highly utilized in the marine industry as gel coats and barrier coats. Its growing consumption in the production of ships, boats, yachts, naval ships, etc., is expected to drive the VER market in the upcoming years. 
Depending upon various end-uses, the market is segregated into pipes and tanks, paint & coatings, transportation, building & construction, aerospace, FGD & precipitators, and others. The pipes and tanks segment holds the major share in the VER market as it is widely used in chemical storage vessels, chemical reactors, electro-refining tanks, and others. Rapidly increasing demand for FGD installations across the world due to several environmental concerns and stringent regulations on harmful gas emissions is expected to boost the demand for vinyl ester resins, thereby propelling its market growth in the next few years. Huge demand for VER from the building and construction industry due to rising infrastructural activities, especially in the Asia Pacific region, is one of the major factors driving the VER market around the world. Emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) by the Vinyl Ester Resin can somehow hinder the market growth in the future.  
In 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 had an unprecedented impact on the Vinyl Ester Resin market around the world. The imposition of the nationwide lockdowns by the government authorities resulted in the temporary closure of all industrial and commercial operations worldwide. Several downstream industries, including transportation, building and construction, oil and gas, and others, were severely affected due to the spread of the deadly virus. However, with the gradual reopening of the market, the VER industry is expected to witness significant growth in the near term. 
Among different regions, the Asia Pacific region is dominating the Vinyl Ester Resin market across the globe and is expected to maintain its dominance in the forecast period as well. The growing infrastructural investments, along with the rising demand for VER in the pipes and tanks and other end-use industries, is driving the market across the Asia Pacific region. 
 Major players operating in the Vinyl Ester Resin market include Ashland Global Holdings Inc., Interplastic Corporation, AOC Aliancys, Sino Polymer Co., Ltd., Swancor Holding Company Limited, Showa Denko K.K., Polynt-Reichhold, INEOS, and Others.
