Unsaturated Polyester Resins Market Overview
Unsaturated Polyester Resins market size is forecast to reach US$17.2 billion by 2027, after growing at a CAGR of 6.1% during 2022-2027. Unsaturated polyester resins are thermosetting resin produced by mixing low-molecular-weight unsaturated polyester in a vinyl monomer and then copolymerizing it. The increasing age of road and bridge fabrics, increased investment in upgrading existing commercial buildings, and the growing renovation activities are expected to create lucrative opportunities for the unsaturated polyester resins market. In addition, the rapid expansion of the automotive market is aided by a rise in the use of electric vehicles by consumers and businesses, which is further aiding the market growth. Furthermore, it is projected that the bolstering aerospace and marine industry will increase the demand for wood paints and boat hulls, which will also contribute towards the market growth during the forecast period.
Due to the global economic slowdown caused by the pandemic, the construction industry has seen a significant drop in growth. Due to lower raw material production, commodity sales disruptions, disrupted trade movements, lower construction demand, and lower demand for new projects, COVID-19 slowed and disrupted market growth in 2020. Due to a lack of funding, several projects were left unfinished during the pandemic. As a result of these factors, construction output was significantly reduced during the pandemic. The construction industry in the United Kingdom, for illustration, was 11.6 percent lower in July 2020 than it was in February 2020, according to the Office for National Statistics. The level of construction activity in the United Kingdom was 10.8% lower in August 2020 than it was in February 2020. Furthermore, as a result of the COVID-19 area’s lockdown, manufacturers were stranded on raw material orders, which had a significant impact on the logistics industry. Because of the drop in construction activity, demand for cement, plastics, coatings, composites, and other materials fell, reducing demand for unsaturated polyester resins significantly. As a result, the market growth of unsaturated polyester resins was stifled.
Unsaturated Polyester Resins Market Segment Analysis – By Application
The plastics segment held the largest share in the unsaturated polyester resins market in 2021 and is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% during 2022-2027. Unsaturated polyester resins are primarily used to make fiber reinforced plastics and filled plastic products, such as sanitary ware, tanks, pipes, gratings, and high-performance marine and transportation components like closure and body panels, fenders, boat hulls/decks, and other large glass fiber reinforced plastic articles. The low cost of unsaturated polyester resins compared to other epoxy and PVC materials have aided the growth of the global unsaturated polyester resins market in the plastics industry. This factor, in turn, is stimulating the growth of the market.
Unsaturated Polyester Resins Market Segment Analysis – By End-Use Industry
The building and construction segment held the largest share in the unsaturated polyester resins market in 2021 and is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% during 2022-2027. Unsaturated polyester resins are widely used in the construction industry for roof tiles, building panels, concrete forming pans, reinforcement, household structures composites, bathroom accessories, and other applications. Glass fiber Glass Fibre-reinforced Plastic (GRP), which is used in the building and construction industry for flat and corrugated sheets, light domes and skylights, washbasins, dormer windows, rain gutters, complete covers for sewage water treatment plants, shower cabins, and door ornaments, is made primarily from unsaturated polyester resins. The advantages of GRP, such as the product’s design freedom, high dimensional accuracy, and excellent compatibility with other construction materials, are also influencing the market’s growth. As a result, the widespread use of unsaturated polyester resin in the building and construction industry is propelling its growth.

Unsaturated Polyester Resins Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
Asia-Pacific region held the largest share in the unsaturated polyester resins market in 2021 up to 42%, owing to spiraling demand for unsaturated polyester resins from the building and construction industry in the region. The building & construction sector is expanding in Asia-Pacific countries. For instance, in January 2022, Posco and Adani Group of South Korea have agreed to jointly construct a US$5 billion integrated manufacturing unit in Gujarat. In January 2022, Honda-Dongfeng announced to build an electric-vehicle production plant in Wuhan. In November 2021, Chinese electronics manufacturer Xiaomi announced its plan to build an automobile manufacturing plant in Beijing with an annual capacity of three lakh vehicles. By 2024, the facility will be operational and will produce electric vehicles. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, private sector houses rose 15.1 percent monthly and 57.5 percent annually in February 2021, in seasonally adjusted terms (ABS). According to the Vietnam Ministry of Construction, the average house floor area per person in Vietnam will be 27 square meters by 2025, with 28 square meters in urban areas and 26 square meters in rural areas. Thus, the increasing building & construction industry in APAC is the major factor boosting the market growth during the year 2021 and the forecast period.
Unsaturated Polyester Resins Market Drivers
Increasing Electric Vehicle Production
Unsaturated polyester resins are often widely used in the automotive industry because of their design flexibility, lightweight, low system costs, and mechanical strength. Electric vehicle production and adoption are expected to rise around the world. According to Invest India, the Indian EV market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 44 percent between 2020 and 2027, with annual sales reaching 6.34 million units by 2027. California has mandated that by 2035, all new passenger vehicles sold in the state by 100% electric. The recently unveiled American Jobs Plan proposes a total of US$174 billion in incentives, rebates, and investments to promote the production and adoption of electric vehicles. GM has also proposed that all diesel and gasoline-powered cars be phased out by 2035, with the entire fleet being converted to electric vehicles. As a result, it is expected that a gradual shift toward electric vehicles will boost demand for unsaturated polyester resins, propelling the market forward.

Increasing Demand for Aircrafts
Unsaturated polyester resin is one of the most popular thermoset polymers for use as a matrix in composites for aerospace applications because of its unique properties such as high strength and modulus, room temperature cure capability, high resistance to water, and transparency. Various regions are experiencing an increase in aircraft demand. For example, Boeing predicted in November 2020 that China’s airlines would spend US$1.4 trillion on 8,600 new planes and US$1.7 trillion on commercial aviation services over the next 20 years. According to Boeing’s current business forecast, the Middle East will require 2,520 planes by 2030. India is also expected to drive demand for 2,300 aircraft worth US$320 billion over the next 20 years, according to Boeing. According to Boeing, 8,995 aircraft fleets were delivered in North America in 2020, with 10,610 fleets expected by 2039. As the number of aircraft produced grows, so will demand unsaturated polyester resins, propelling the market forward during the forecast period.
Unsaturated Polyester Resins Market Challenges
Availability of Other Substitute Materials
The market for unsaturated polyester resins is being hampered by the acceptance of epoxy, vinyl ester, acrylic, polyethylene terephthalate, and polyurethane resins. Epoxy resins are used in a variety of applications, including adhesives, coatings, casting materials, and composites. They have similar properties to unsaturated polyester resins, such as high strength, low shrinkage, and good adhesion. Unsaturated polyester resins are less hard and clear than acrylic and have a yellowish tint to them. They’re also extremely toxic and have a persistently foul odor. Vinyl ester resins have much better corrosion resistance, mechanical properties, and thermal properties than unsaturated polyester resins. As a result, the availability of other substitute materials could limit the overall growth of the global unsaturated polyester resins market over the forecast period.
