    Market Insights

    C9 resins, also known as aromatic hydrocarbon resins, are produced by using aromatic hydrocarbons. The hydrocarbon feedstock determines their makeup (coal tar, crude oil). Indene, methylindenes, dicyclopentadiene, styrene, alpha-methylstyrene, and different vinyl toluenes are the most significant base monomers. There are different softening points for these resins. Compared to C5 resins, they have a substantially higher melt viscosity, darker in color (dark yellow to brown), and have a higher softening point in between 100 and 150°C. The C9 resin family has a wide range of applications and is compatible with numerous polymers.

    Growing usage of C9 resin for various applications such as printing inks, hot-melt adhesives, and pressure-sensitive adhesives is expected to drive the growth of the market. The market growth would be aided by C9 resin’s excellent chemical resistance, miscibility, low odour, low molecular weight, low solution viscosity, naturally high solubility, and other characteristics. The demand for C9 resins in the building and construction end-use industry is increasing due to their unique qualities, which make them a valuable commodity.

    The market has grown as a result of rising tire demand brought on by the automotive industry's fast expansion. The booming printing inks and packaging sectors are also expected to have a significant impact on the demand for C9 resins during the forecast period. Driven by these factors, the C9 resin market is likely to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecasted period. 

    Segment Analysis

    Based on the application type, the C9 resin market is segmented as paints and coatings, adhesives and sealants, printing inks, rubber and tires, and others. Adhesives and sealants application is expected to remain the biggest demand generator for C9 resins during the forecast period owing to the increasing usage of C9 resins in the manufacturing of adhesives and sealants. C9 resins are utilised in adhesives because of their extremely high adhesiveness. These are commonly used as tackifiers in adhesives to increase adherence. Additionally, these resins lower production costs. These are mostly utilised in pressure-sensitive and hot-melt tapes and labels. The use of hot-melt adhesives in the automotive, healthcare, paper, sheet, and packaging sectors is fast expanding in the Asia-Pacific, European, and North American regions, which is likely to boost the demand for C9 resins during the forecast period.

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest and fastest-growing market for C9 resins during the forecast period owing to the region's expanding demand for adhesives and sealants from the building and construction sector. In countries such as Singapore, China, and India, the building and construction industries are booming. Huge production of paints and coatings in China and increasing production of rubber in India are likely to support the market expansion in the Asia-Pacific region.
