UV curable resins market in EMEA
The global UV curable resins market is fueled by the growing demand for coating applications, including plastic coating, wood coating, and wood coating applications, particularly in countries such as Sweden, the UK, and Germany. Another factor heralding a bright prospect for the UV curable resins market in EMEA is the introduction of legislations to decrease emissions from solvents from paints and coatings, thereby necessitating compliance pertaining to VOC.
“Europe has been actively involved in the development of novel waterborne UV coatings that find extensive application in furniture coating lines and substitute traditional solvent-borne systems. This further eliminates or reduces VOC emissions. The region has also witnessed an increasing use of UV curable resins for 3D applications and pigmented coatings,” says Kshama.
UV curable resins market in Americas
The global UV curable resins market in the Americas is driven by the escalating demand for the consumption of UV curable resins in regions such as North America. Increased use of electronic circuits that employ UV curable resins has fostered the growth of the UV curable resins market in the region. Additionally, the region has emerged as a major consumer of packed food and beverages that employ UV curable resins, thereby strengthening the market in the region. Moreover, a shift toward resins that are eco-friendly is another important factor contributing to the continual growth of the market.
However, the growth of the global UV curable resins market in the Americas is restrained by laws and regulations present in the region pertaining to the use of UV curable resins. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act in the region requires that the food packaging materials be produced under healthy manufacturing practices while being safe and ideal for intended uses. Along with the requirements for manufacturing and safety, food additive requirements are also applicable in the region. In most cases, printing inks, including UV curable inks find application in food packaging applications. Therefore, the use of UV curable inks is included in a food additive regulation called the Food Contact Notification (FCN).
