Curing agents are special type of additives that are used to harden resins globally. Curing agents are also known as cross-linking agents. Epoxy resins are low molecular weight pre-polymers, or higher molecular weight polymers. Selecting the right curing agent, is of prime importance, as it influences the viscosity, reactivity and working time of resins in mechanical, chemical and optical properties specifically. Epoxy curatives works effectively when combined with epoxy resins and reactive modifiers to meet a variety of application challenges. Curing agents used in to epoxy resin contains epoxide functional group. Selection of epoxy curing agents is totally based upon type of resin and requires degree of hardness. Each epoxy curing agent has its own properties – which describes degree of curing as well as time required to cure resin.
Availability of wide range of applications in industrial coatings, automotive applications, metal-to-metal adhesives, and electronic potting sectors is a major factor driving growth of the global market over the forecast period. Growing demand for epoxy curing agents-based resin formulations, especially from paints and coatings industry is another major factor driving growth of the target market. In addition, rising demand for epoxy resin-based composites in aerospace and wind energy industries is supporting growth of the global market over the forecast period. Also, increasing adoption of epoxy curing agents in civil engineering, and construction applications such as concrete bonding, flooring, and marble laminate is further expected to fuel growth of global epoxy curing agents market in the near future.
However, high costs of raw material used in production of epoxy curing agents is expected to limit growth of the target market.
