Will Maleic Anhydride Market carry its growth momentum post COVID-19? Read more to know

The Maleic Anhydride Market is expected to grow at > 5.2% during 2020-2025, according to a report from Stratview Research.


COVID-19 pandemic – Boon or a Curse to the industry?

The outbreak of COVID-19 has severely impacted several industries across the world. Tough government measures such as lockdown of major economies, has pressed the ‘pause button’ for most of the industries. For most of the industries, the revenue has gone down in 2020 and has resumed an uptrend gradually from 2021.

Key insights on Maleic Anhydride Market

Maleic Anhydride Market is likely to witness an impressive CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period. Increasing penetration of composite materials in the automotive, aerospace, and construction industries is the prime factor that has boosted the demand for unsaturated polyester resins, which are used to manufacture composite materials. Rising disposable income along with increasing use of spandex in compression stockings, sportswear and medical textiles has boosted the demand for 1,4-butanediol. The escalating growth in the construction industries in BRIC countries and other developing economies is expected to further drive the growth of the maleic anhydride market. In addition, lenient government regulations, easy availability of land and raw materials, low labor and transportation costs are the major factors encouraging the key players to shift their manufacturing activities to developing economies such as China, India, Indonesia, and Brazil.

Regional Insights

Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the largest market during the forecast period, with China, Japan, and India being the countries with lucrative growth opportunities. The growth of the market is mainly driven by the expanding automotive and rising construction sectors in the major economies of the region. Increasing adoption of maleic anhydride to manufacture bulk molding compounds and fiberglass reinforced plastics is expected to further drive the demand for maleic anhydride in the region. Increasing disposable income, rapid industrialization, urbanization, and increasing spending in the construction sector in the region are expected to further drive the region’s market.

Market Scope & Market Segmentation

Maleic Anhydride Market Share: By Raw Material Type

Based on the raw material type, the market is segmented as n-butane and benzene. The n-butane segment held the larger share of the market in 2019, and is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period. N-butane-based maleic anhydrides are majorly preferred over benzene-based maleic anhydrides owing to their lower production cost and lesser harmful nature.

Maleic Anhydride Market Share: By Application Type

Based on the application type, the maleic anhydride market is segmented as unsaturated polyester resins (UPR), 1,4-butanediol (1,4-bdo), lubricating oil additives, copolymers, and others. The growth of the segment is mainly due to an increased demand for UPR from emerging economies, such as China and India, and its low price compared to the other epoxy resins. Increasing penetration of UPR in the marine, aerospace, automotive, construction, and chemical industries is expected to further drive the growth of the segment.
