The global phenolic resins market size is expected to reach USD 19.37 billion by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period according to a new study published by Polaris Market Research. The report “Phenolic Resins Market Share, Size, Industry Report By Product Type (Resol, Novolac), By Application (Molding Compounds, Wood Adhesives, Insulation, Laminates, Foundry, Paper Impregnation), By End-use (Building & Construction, Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Furniture), By Regions, Segments & Forecast, 2019 – 2026” provides a comprehensive analysis of present market insights and future market trends.
Phenolic resins also known as formaldehyde resins are synthetic thermoplastic polymers derived from phenols. These resins are the source to an array of applications including wood adhesives, coatings, molding compounds, insulation, lamination, paper impregnation, foundry, abrasives, frictional materials and many others.
The global market is concentrated in high growth applications such as wood adhesives and insulation materials. They are used in wood adhesives due to their extremely favorable characteristics. These characteristics are leveraged by the construction industry which determines to a large extent the consumption of wood products and adhesives.
The construction market has grown multi-fold in almost all countries of different global regions and will remain the same over forecast period. China is the biggest contributor to market and has the largest construction market in the world. Though China witnessed a large downturn in housing output in 2018, its make over to a services and consumer driven economy resulted in many growth opportunities in new and innovative types of construction.
