Epoxy Resin Market in Marine Composites: Highlights
The marine industry has undergone a remarkable transition over a period with regards to the adoption of composite materials in various applications. Polyester composites dominate the overall marine composites market, owing to low cost coupled with moderate performance. However, in racing boats and yachts, epoxy resin is becoming the perennial choice of matrix system for manufacturing high-performance composite parts.
As per Stratview Research, the global epoxy resin market in marine composites is likely to grow at a healthy CAGR of 4.4% over the next five years. Superior mechanical properties, excellent adhesiveness, improved fatigue resistance, reduced water ingression, weight reduction, and excellent chemical resistance are some of the key drivers for the usage of epoxy resins in marine composites. In addition to that, the usage of epoxy resins in marine composite also reduces VOC emissions, which, in turn, would help composite part manufacturers to meet the stringent and US and EU standards. Other drivers are organic growth of boat and yacht retail sales, demand for lightweight boats and yachts, and increasing use of carbon fiber composites since epoxy resin is the ideal choice with carbon fiber.
The research’s findings suggest that boat segment is expected to remain the most dominant market during the forecast period, driven by higher production of boats globally and increasing usage of epoxy composites in high-speed racing boats to optimize strength-to-weight ratio of major components, such as hulls.
Based on the application type, the mast & stringers segment is likely to remain the most dominant application type in the epoxy resin market in marine composites during the forecast period. Carbon-epoxy is the most preferred composite material for making masts and stringers, whereas glass-polyester is for making hulls and decks.
In terms of region, Europe dominates the global epoxy resin market in marine composites, owing to the presence of many prepreggers, part fabricators, and boat & yacht manufacturers. Selden Masts, Sunseeker International Ltd., Future Fibers, Marstrom Composites AB, Gurit Holding AG, and Hexcel Corporation are some of the major consumers of epoxy composites for the marine industry in the European region.
Major epoxy resin suppliers in marine composites are Aditya Birla Chemicals Ltd., Hexion Inc., Huntsman Corporation, Olin Corporation, Sicomin Epoxy Systems, and Wessex Resin and Adhesives Ltd.
