The global UV curable resin market, along with its end products, has witnessed a significant growth in the past few years and this growth is estimated to persist in the coming years. UV curable resins are building blocks for formulating various environment-friendly and fast curing coatings, inks, and adhesives which further serve various end-user industries, including industrial coatings, graphic arts, and electronics.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest consumer of UV curable resins, which consumed more than half of the total global consumption in 2012. Among all the countries in the region, China and Japan lead the global market, holding a major share in regional volumetric consumption of UV curable resin in 2012. The market volume of UV curable resin is comparatively low in the ROW region, but it is expected show the highest CAGR from 2013 to 2018, followed by Asia-Pacific.

Almost 90.0% of the total demand is by coatings and inks manufacturers, with coatings application also being the fastest-growing end-user segment. As an end user, industrial coatings are the biggest as well as the fastest-growing segment of UV curable resins, which is primarily due to high penetration in all the regions. Subsequently, graphic arts and electronics industries were the second- and third-largest end users of UV curable formulations.

The drivers of the industry are identified as the budding demand for green coatings, growing electronics manufacturing, and increased use of environment-friendly inks in packaging applications. The restraining factors are identified as application limitations and not being an attractive product in price competitive markets. The major issue pertaining in the market is manufacturing of UV resins by renewable feedstock.
