UV Curable Resins & Formulated Products Market, By Composition (Monomers, Oligomers, Additives, and others), By Chemistry (Non- Acrylates, Acrylates, and others), By Technology (Waterborne UV, Solvent-borne, 100% solid UV, and Powder UV), and By Application (Coating, Overprint Varnishes, Printing Inks, and others) – Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018-25

UV curable resins are those resins that involve less harmful emissions, fast cure (high productivity), less energy consumption, less equipment space, low temperature treatment, and waste reduction. UV curable resins do not contain any organic solvents that harm the environment. These resins include monomers, oligomers, co-initiators, photo-polymerization, and various additives such as antioxidants, stabilizers, pigments, and plasticizers. UV curable resins are used in a wide range of applications in the ink and coating and adhesive industries. UV curable resins are the most preferred option for applications with fast-curing and fast-drying requirements.

Low cost equipment associated with the manufacturing of UV curing resins along with technological development have helped drive growth of the market for UV curable resins and formulated products. Increasing demand for odor-free, safe, sustainable, and green materials has increased the demand for UV curing resins thus, boosting market growth. These resins offer benefits such as high productivity, cost effectiveness, durability, and low maintenance, which in turn, drives growth of the market for UV curable resins and formulated products. However, fluctuation in costs associated with its raw materials, high costs associated with R&D activities and initial investments of manufacturers pose as major restraints for growth of the market. Moreover, high conventional heat or infrared radiation involved in the UV curing process causes major complications in these products.
