These industries are also focusing on product transparency including information on material ingredients in an effort to reduce the use of higher toxicity components. Furthermore, automotive OEMs are also researching on the use of bio-based resins, particularly in the interiors, in the quest of weight reduction.
Novel Chemical Formulations Driving Mechanical Properties of Bio-based Epoxy Resins
Manufacturers and researchers are focusing on developing new chemical formulations to increase the mechanical properties of bio-based epoxy resins, thereby, driving its application in various industrial sectors. With the increasing demand for natural-derived epoxy, the manufacturers are focusing on using new natural feedstock to develop new materials. Recently, there has been an increased emphasis on using epoxidized soybean oil to produce bio-based epoxy resins.
Comprising chemical structure and resulting in better mechanical properties, there has been increasing use of new materials such as natural-oil based, rosin-based, isosorbide-based, and epoxidized natural rubber to develop new formulations to enhance bio-based epoxy resins properties. Aiming to develop innovative bio-based epoxy resins, the producers are focusing on advanced functionalities including reprocessability, recyclability, and reparability.
Fluctuation in Raw Material Prices to Hamper Bio-based Epoxy Resins Market Growth
High fluctuation in the price of raw materials used in bio-based epoxy resins is emerging as the biggest challenge for manufacturers as well as end-use industries. Although the demand for bio-based epoxy resins is increasing, the rise in the cost of raw materials including natural oil, plant-based materials the demand is likely to be affected.
Bio-based epoxy resins are made using plant-based materials that are more costly to process compared to the petrochemical, moreover, it typically takes a lot of plant matter to produce bio-based chemicals as compared to the hydrocarbons. However, manufacturers are researching on alternative sources to produce bio-based epoxy resins at a low-cost, exhibiting favorable properties.
