DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 13, 2018--The "Global Unsaturated Polyester Resin Market Size, Market Share, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Growth Trends, Key Players, Competitive Strategies and Forecasts, 2018 To 2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global Unsaturated Polyester Resin market was valued at US$ 10,052.8 Mn in 2017, and is expected to grow at the CAGR of 5.50% from 2018 to 2026.

The market is driven by various factors such as increasing demand from end-use industries, an essential polymer for production of composite materials, economical option as compared to other resin, etc. Owing to its thermal, flexure composites mechanical, and morphological attributes; unsaturated polyester resins are extensively used in various industries. Moreover, due to the strong mechanical properties, they are used in the manufacturing of composites.

Orthophthalic type is the leading segment followed by Isophthalic type in 2017. Orthophthalic is the most preferred type over other resins owing to low cost, toughness, and chemical resistance.

Building & Construction held the largest share of the market by end-use industry in 2017. In building & construction industry, unsaturated polyester resins find promising application in roofing, building panels, concrete forming pans, reinforcement, and household structures composites. Renovation activities for aging infrastructure across the world especially in developed economies expected to boost the demand for unsaturated polyester resins from the building and construction industry.

The market has a positive outlook in transportation end-use industry on account of enhanced lifespan and improved performance of end-products even in an adverse and challenging environment. Furthermore, increasing demand for automotive parts with a higher stiffness and wear resistance is creating an increasing pressure on manufacturers to produce specialty resins such as UPR, which can be reinforced with a filler without affecting dynamic load.
