Rise in Usage of Epoxy Curing Agents in Paints & Coatings Industry
The paints & coatings segment is the leading epoxy curing agents market in terms of volume and revenue. Epoxy curing agent-based products dry quickly and offer excellent hardness for coatings in construction. Epoxy curing agent-based resins used in paints and coatings include floor paint, concrete floor paint, garage epoxy paint, and epoxy primers. Such paints & coatings prevent corrosion and rust on surfaces where applied. Epoxy-based coatings are also used widely in primers for enhancing adhesion of marine and automotive paints. Since such coatings have better chemical and heat resistance as compared to other coatings, they are also used in industrial applications.
Amines and Polyamides are Leading Product Segments of the Epoxy Curing Agents Market
In terms of product, the epoxy curing agents market can be classified into amines, polyamides, imidazoles, anhydrides, and others. Polyamides possess numerous properties in comparison to other types such as the ability to cure epoxy resins into highly plasticized rigid thermosetting polymers. The cured resin provides high tensile, compression, and bending strengths, and it is also stiff, strong, and excellent in shock resistance. The polyamides segment is anticipated to account for a major share of the epoxy curing agents market. Owing to their beneficial properties, polyamides are widely used in the construction and consumer electronics industries. Developing countries such as China, India, and Japan are expected to increase the use of polyamides and amines, leading to increase in their demand. Increasing demand for low temperature cure epoxy curing agents in the paints and coatings application is projected to positively impact the expansion of the amines segment in the near future.
