Global Recyclable Thermoset Market to Grow with a CAGR of 3.1% from 2020 to 2028.

Pune, India, April 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global recyclable thermoset market has been estimated to be USD 333.8 million in 2020 and is projected to grow with a CAGR of 3.1% during the forecast period in the COVID-19 period. However, without the COVID-19 impact, the global recyclable thermoset market has been estimated to grow at a CAGR over 5.4% during the forecast period.

Growing awareness on reducing the dependency on fossil fuel for polymer/plastic production is likely to drive the growth of the market for recyclable thermosets. The plastic recycling technology offers the possibility of lowering carbon emissions and reducing the amount of waste. It will help to avoid the accumulation of large amounts of plastics waste in natural environment and landfills.

Thermosets are a particular class of polymers that form well-defined, permanent, chemical networks that appear to expand in three-dimensional directions by means of a curing process, which can occur either by heating or by the addition of a curing agent. This cause a crosslinking formation between its chemical components, giving the thermoset a strong and rigid structure that can be added to other materials to increase strength.

Thermosets are highly utilized in advanced applications, especially within the aerospace and military industries, as multiple composites can be produced with the presence of thermosets. These include reinforced carbon fibers and glass. Despite the wide use of polymers in various industrial applications, it is very difficult to recycle thermosets. This could be a major restraint for the thermoset market. Existing thermosets or polymers are very difficult to remold or reset once they are cured from the process of recycle. Hence, they will burn and get decomposed at very high temperatures. This is the key restraint for the market, which can hamper the global recycled thermoset market growth in future.

Some of the noted developments that consider in the report are:

  • January 2021, Eastman Chemical Co. has announced that it is investing approximately USD 250 million over the next two years to build one of the world’s largest plastic-to-plastics molecular recycling facility at its site in Kingsport, Tenn. Eastman Chemical Company is an American company primarily involved in the recycling industry.
  • November 2020, The US Department of Energy (DOE) announced more than USD27 million in funding for 12 projects that would support the development of advanced plastics recycling technologies and new plastics that are recyclable by design in 2020-2021. As a part of DOE’s Plastics Innovation Challenge, these projects will also help improve existing recycling processes that break plastics into chemical building blocks. This will help in replacing the recycled products instead of new plastic products.
  • July 2019, Aditya Birla Chemical acquired recyclable thermoset technology from Connora Technologies. Connora Technologies is the pioneer of recyclable epoxy resin technology. Aditya Birla Group and Connora Technologies have been collaborating since 2016 in a Joint Development Agreement to scale-up the manufacturing of Connora’s recyclable epoxy thermoset technology. This technology not only enables incremental value creation through zero-waste manufacturing to customers, but also offers end-of-life recyclability options to Aditya Birla chemicals.
  • February 2015, Aditya Birla Chemicals (India) Limited to merge with Grasim Industries Limited. This merger consolidates Aditya Birla Group’s Chlor -Alkali business into Grasim and strengthen its existing portfolio of viscose staple fibre, caustic soda and allied chemicals in Standalone Company. The merger will enable the geographical diversification for Grasim through the addition of ABCIL’s manufacturing facilities spread across the country. It also enables the business to capitalize growth opportunities by bringing in operational and financial synergies, backed by Grasim’s strength.

COVID-19 Impact on Global Recyclable Thermoset Market

QMI team closely monitors the impact of COVID-19 on the recyclable thermoset market and it is observed that the demand for recyclable thermoset market slow-down during the pandemic time, but it is anticipating to grow with a healthy pace from 2021.  COVID-19 impact on some of the major countries are listed below:

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many industries in China. The immediate shutting down of manufacturing plants in various industries such as automotive, electronics, and others, has brought the country to a standstill. This has also impacted the rate of working labor. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the manufacturing industries in China have experienced a huge reduction in the production rate of recyclable thermoset due to a decrease in the workforce. Considering the significant role China plays in the supply chain of the U.S. plastics industry and the manufacturing sector. Taking into consideration China’s important role in the supply chain of manufactures, COVID-19 disrupted China’s economy as well as the world economy.

The use of recyclable thermoset has increased in various industries in the US, such as healthcare and automotive, due to the increased adoption of packaged end-use products and plastic medical devices by the healthcare sector. According to the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), COVID-19 has affected 75 to 80% businesses financially, which is anticipated to restrict the growth of the recyclable thermoset market as well.

The COVID-19 pandemic has decreased the market value considerably in 2020 and early 2021 in India. This has shown a major impact on the labor workforce in the recyclable thermoset market. However, in the post-COVID-19 scenario, increasing awareness among population regarding the importance of recycling of thermoset may lead to an increase in demand for recyclable thermoset in the building and construction industry.

The companies in Germany are currently facing many challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has caused major disruptions in the supply of components for recyclable thermoset market, which is affecting the growth of this market. In particular, massive disruptions in the supply chains occurred at the beginning of the pandemic. Parts and components ordered from China, for example, could no longer be supplied which hampered the recyclable thermoset market.

Global Recyclable Thermoset Market, By Technology

By technology, the global recyclable thermoset market is segmented into mechanical recycling, feedstock recycling, and energy recovery. Mechanical recycling presently leads the market, led by high consumption in Asia-Pacific, which are the main market for thermoset composites. The mechanical recycling technology involves grinding techniques to minimize the size of the scrap material into powder or fibrous recycled material, which can be used as raw materials. This recycling process is highly labor-intensive and is widely favored in China and India due to the availability of low-cost labor and relatively less stringent landfill regulations. Such factors are expected to contribute towards the growth of this segment.
