Asia-Pacific is a Global Leader in the Consumption of Unsaturated Polyester Resins

Date: 2015-08-17

“The unsaturated polyester resins (UPR) are categorized into varied types based on their functionalities, such as orthopthalic, isopthalic, DCPD resins, and others. They possess properties such as high flexibility and good tensile strength. Orthophthalic resins are advantageous in terms of cost, toughness, and chemical resistance as compared to other resins. These resins are readily available and can be easily converted into finished products, thereby meeting the necessary performance demands for varied applications, such as building & construction, automotive/transportation, wind energy, marine, and electrical & electronics industries. 

Asia-Pacific is a global leader in the consumption of unsaturated polyester resins and this dominance is expected to continue till 2020. China is the key market in this region, consuming more than half of the demand for unsaturated polyester resins, followed by Japan wherein the consumption is growing steadily. Increase in the consumption of unsaturated polyester resins in building & construction, marine, land transportation, and electrical & electronics have been observed in the Asia-Pacific region, due to continued industrialization and expansion of the manufacturing sector. Continuous growth and innovation, along with industry consolidations, are projected to ascertain a bright future for the UPR industry.

Building & construction and marine are two major end-user applications of unsaturated polyester resins. In the building & construction industry, unsaturated polyester resins are utilized as fiber reinforced plastics, and in artificial marbles, pipes, and tanks. In the marine industry, UPR is used as an important coating material for boats and vessels. Plastic parts in automotive are manufactured by using unsaturated polyester resins. Wind energy is an upcoming application for UPR, as these materials are widely utilized in the manufacture of wind turbine blades.
