|Pitfalls & Challenges:||
Paraformaldehyde Market, By Application
The production of resins accounted for a significant chunk of more than 40% of the product market in 2015. Resins are available in many forms such as phenols, amines, polyester, alkyds, polycarbonates, polyamides, aromatic polyamides, polyether, and polyurethanes. These various forms of resins possess specific chemical and physical properties such as high temperature resistant, rigidity, flexibility, good chemical resistant, and excellent corrosion resistance. Owing to multiple properties of resins, they are used in applications such as paper coatings, adhesives, molding compounds, electrical insulation, paints, lenses, fishing rods, and bearings.
Paraformaldehyde is also used to produce agrochemicals such as pesticides, fungicides, bactericides, and herbicides. Technological advancements in the agricultural sector have increased the adoption of agrochemicals globally. The need to improve crop yield and get better cultivation in smaller farmlands has boosted agrochemicals industry in the last decade. Farmers’ increasing awareness about the benefits of agrochemicals is making them switch to these products from synthetic chemicals. Agrochemicals contribute significantly to the product market and are likely to witness 6.5% gains between 2016 and 2024.
Nowadays, the product usage is increased in medical sector due to its disinfectant properties. Paraformaldehyde is used as a fixative for tissues and cells. Ever-expanding pharmaceutical and medical industry owing to the increasing population and consumer spending power shall augment the product market during the forecast period. Medical applications had a contribution of 26.19 kilo tons in 2015 in the product market and is anticipated to grow at a significant rate in the coming years.
Paraformaldehyde Market, By Region
Asia Pacific registered a substantial share of more than 55% in paraformaldehyde market in 2015. Construction spending in emerging economies is escalating in this region. China had accounted for a record-breaking construction spending of USD 1.75 trillion in 2015 and India’s contribution to the construction industry was USD 420 billion in the same year. Growing construction industry has led to increased resins consumption in this region, which augments the product market during the forecast period.
Europe has always been an established automobile market with major giants such as SKODA AUTO a.s. and Volkswagen AG. Resins are used in vehicle manufacturing in adhesives, bearing, and molding compounds. Paints & coatings industry has flourished widely in Germany, Spain, and Italy in the last couple of years. Resins are used extensively in paints and coatings industry owing to its chemical and corrosion resistant properties. Thus, rapid industrialization in Europe gives a positive outlook of the product market in this region.
