Petroleum resins are low molecular weight thermoplastic hydrocarbon resins obtained from cracked petroleum fractions. It has a tackifying effect, which is slight sticky effect and hence, is used in coatings, paints, varnishes, printing inks, paper, lithographic inks, adhesives, concrete curing compounds, rubber, and other applications. It is available in powders, crushed nuggets, flakes, solid block, beads, solutions, and dispersions forms.
Global petroleum resins market was valued at US$ 3149.18 Mn in 2021 in terms of revenue, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.35 % during the forecast period (2022 to 2030).
The increasing application of the petroleum resin market for the production of hot-melt adhesives is the key growth driver in the petroleum resin market in the global market during the forecasted period. Not only this, but the growing consumption of paints and coating industry in the petroleum resin market in the global market also drives the market as it is used in road-making paints production and many other types of paints also for the construction industry and automotive industry.
The pandemic of COVID 19 has affected the petroleum resin market and all the other businesses in a bad way. Owing to the lockdown situation and post lockdown scenario, most of the manufacturing units were shut down and hence pushed various economies towards forced recession. During the COVID outbreak, the manufacturing and production units of the petroleum resin market faced a steep downfall in revenue.
It is expected that the petroleum resin market in the market is expected to recover from these losses at the end of the first quarter in the coming year during the forecasted period from 2021 to 2030
