This industry research report identifies Convestro, The Dow Chemical Company, LG Chem, and Mitsui Chemical as the key vendors in the global bisphenol-A market. This industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by application (epoxy resins and polycarbonate plastics) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global bisphenol-A market

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global bisphenol-A market will grow steadily at a CAGR of almost 6% by 2020. The application of bisphenol-A in the production of epoxy resins has been prevailing for decades, and this is expected increase significantly in the next four years. Owing to their properties such as resistance to chemicals and strong adhesion along with toughness, epoxy resins have found considerable significance in the production of several daily-use products. Metal containers have epoxy linings as a protective layer, and the automotive industry uses epoxy resin components in the production of cars and boats. The estimated growth of these industries will fuel the demand for epoxy resins, which in turn, will propel the growth of the bisphenol-A market. Moreover, the growth of the construction industry that uses epoxy resins in paints and coatings will also aid in the growth of this market.

The recent years have seen an increase in the number of industrial applications of bisphenol-A products. Automotive manufacturers have started replacing glasses with polycarbonate plastics made from bisphenol-A as it helps in reducing the overall weight of the automobile and also helps in improving safety features. Epoxy resins made from bisphenol-A have found considerable significance in the production of wind turbine blades which makes them stronger and lighter. The demand from these markets in the coming years will increase the production of bisphenol-A. This will lead to the broadening of the spectrum of product applications of this compound and is considered to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The recent entry of several small players in the market has changed the entire market dynamics, and the current global bisphenol-A market appears highly fragmented. Though large well-established players account for a considerable share of the market, vendor competition is fierce. Large vendors have extensive production facilities and upstream and downstream plastic production capabilities whereas small regional vendors have the geographical advantage of proximity to the markets. This market analysis also predicts that the market will witness a number of joint ventures and collaborations which will lead to market consolidation in the coming years.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Convestro
  • The Dow Chemical Company
  • LG Chem
  • Mitsui Chemical

The other prominent vendors in the market are Kumho P&B Chemicals, Vinmar International, Formosa Plastics, and Samyang Innochem.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the bisphenol-A market

  • Epoxy resins
  • Polycarbonate plastics

The polycarbonate plastics segment accounted for almost 67% of the total market share and dominated the bisphenol-A market during 2015. The anticipated increase in the use of bisphenol-A in manufacturing polycarbonates plastics will propel the growth of this market segment in the next four years. Though the introduction of few substitutes is expected to slow the segment’s growth, this market segment will continue to dominate the industry throughout the predicted period.
