“Global Epichlorohydrin Market Analysis Trends, Applications, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast to 2028” is a recent report generated by MarketResearch.biz. The global epichlorohydrin market report has been segmented on the basis of feedstock, application, end user, and region.
Global Epichlorohydrin Market: Overview
Epichlorohydrin (ECH) is an epoxide and organochlorine compound which is a highly reactive electrophilic compound. It is miscible in polar organic solvents but moderately soluble in water. Epichlorohydrin has a pungent, garlic or chloroform-like odor, and colorless appearance. It is manufactured in two steps, beginning by reaction of allyl chloride with hypochlorous acid to form two isomeric alcohols which is further reacted with base such as sodium hydroxide in order to give an epoxide. The epichlorohydrin is widely used in production of plastics, epoxy resins, glycerol, elastomers, and others.
Global Epichlorohydrin Market: Dynamics
Growing adoption of epoxy resins in various end use industries, owing to its properties such as good dielectric properties, high tensile strength, corrosion resistant, and others, is expected to be a major factor driving growth of the global epichlorohydrin market over the forecast period. Growing paints & coatings industry coupled with rapid industrialization, are other factors anticipated to drive growth of the target market over the forecast period. Moreover, increasing demand for bio-based glycerin epichlorohydrin from various end users such as automotive, pharmaceutical, construction, and other industries, owing to its biodegradability property is expected to fuel growth of the epichlorohydrin market over the forecast period.
However, stringent regulations by government pertaining to environmental and health concern is a key factor which may hamper growth of the potential market over the forecast period. In addition, high raw material cost is another factor expected to restrain growth of the target market over the forecast period.
Increasing investment in research and development for product innovation is expected to create a lucrative opportunity for manufacturers, which in turn is anticipated to support revenue growth of the target market over the forecast period.
