DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Gelcoat Market by Resin Type (Polyester, Vinyl Ester, Epoxy), End Use Industry (Marine, Transportation, Construction, Wind Energy), Region (North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East & Africa and Latin America) - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Polyester resin is widely used for manufacturing gelcoat. The marine industry is the leading end user of gelcoat because of the increasing use of gelcoat in manufacturing ship parts. North America is the largest market for gelcoat, and APAC is the fastest-growing gelcoat market, which is projected to register a CAGR of 9.2%, in terms of value. The market in APAC is expected to be driven by the increasing demand from the wind energy and transportation industries.
Some of the drivers for the gelcoat market are the growing use of composites in various industries and increase in demand for gelcoat from the transportation industry. The cracking of gelcoat and shift toward closed molding process are the restraints for the market growth. The growing demand from the APAC region is one of the major opportunities for the manufacturers.
The gelcoat market is witnessing a significant growth because of the growing demand from various industries such as marine, transportation, and wind. It is projected to register a CAGR of 8%, in terms of value, between 2019 and 2024, to reach USD 1,703.9 million by 2024.
Some of the prominent players in the gelcoat market are Ineos Enterprise (UK), Bufa Composite Systems GmbH (Germany), and HK Research Corporation (US). The strategies undertaken by them include agreements and expansions. For example, in November 2018, Ineos entered into a definitive agreement with Ashland Inc. for taking over Ashland's Inc.'s composite business segment offering gelcoat. The agreement helped the company to consolidate its product portfolio.
