Resin Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Polypropylene, Polyvinyl chloride, Polyurethane, Polyethylene terephthalate, Polystyrene, Expanded polystyrene, others), By End-Use Industry (Packaging, Building & Construction, Automotive & Transportation, Electrical & electronics, Agriculture, others) and Regional Forecast, 2021-2028

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI101746 | Status : Ongoing



The global resin market size expected to grow significantly by 2026. The resin is a solid or highly viscous substance of plant which can be converted into polymers. It is a brittle, amorphous, and transparent solids which are insoluble in water. Resins are natural and synthesised, natural resins exude or ooze out from the bark of the trees and tend to harden on exposure to air whereas synthetic resins are commercially produced that are viscous substances converted into rigid polymers. High adhesive strength, electrical insulation, chemical resistance are properties of resin which will drive high demand from packaging, electrical & electronics, consumer goods end use industries.

On basis of type, Resins can be segmented into polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, polyurethane, polyethylene terephthalate, polystyrene, expanded polystyrene, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, polyamides, polycarbonates, poly methyl methacrylate, other thermoplastics other plastics. Polypropylene is the largest market for resins because of its properties such as high flexibility, heat and chemical resistance which have several applications in the packaging, automotive, and electrical & electronics, and other end-use industries. 

Key Market Driver -

Key Market Driver – Increased demand for sustainable packaging solutions.
