Thermoset Molding Compounds Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Resin Type ( Phenolic Resin, Epoxy Resin, Polyester Resin, Urea Formaldehyde Resin, Melamine Formaldehyde Resin ), By Application ( Automotive, Aerospace, Electrical & Electronics, Others ) and regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region :Global | Report ID: FBI104259 | Status : Ongoing



Thermoset molding is an unavoidable molding process by which adaptable plastic shapes are pushed into a heated mold and molded into their complete version. Thermoset materials are usually stronger than thermoplastic materials owing to the precursors that are applied to the base compound that trigger chemical reactions at the molecular scale, resulting in a more complicated, irreversible final shape. Thermoset plastics cannot be re-melted, only ground and used as a replacement for a number of applications. Due to the excellent electrochemical characteristics, epoxy molding compounds are used for a wide variety of applications in the electrical and automotive sectors. The molded part is established from a melted low - molecular weight and low viscous substance by functionalization as a result of a chemical reaction inside the mould.

The market is driven by an increasing application in the elaectronic sector sector. Thermoset molding compounds provides anti-corrosive and heat resistant properties which increase product life cycle and greater efficiency in electrical applications which in turn drives the market. However, high competition among the several global giants are likely to impede market development.
