Vinyl ester resins are extensively used in industries that require low permeability and superior chemical resistance. One of the most important applications of vinyl ester resins is the fabrication of FRP storage tanks. FRP is also known as fiber reinforced plastic and is extensively used for the construction of chemical plant equipment such as tanks and vessels. FRP tanks are also used in water & wastewater and oil & gas end-use industries. The establishment of new chemical plants and the expansion of the currently existing plants are some of key factors that will lead to an increase in demand for FRP tanks, which in turn, will accentuate the demand for the Global Vinyl Ester Resin Market during the forecast period. For instance, in June 2019, Idemitsu has announced that it will be opening a new lubricant production plant in China, which will begin operations by 2020. Around the same time, the construction of a large integrated complex for natural gas processing and liquefaction in St. Petersburg, Russia, was announced. This project is expected to be completed by 2024. There are many other such upcoming projects that will drive the demand for FRP tanks and thereby, the demand for vinyl ester resins.

Vinyl Ester Market

Additionally, Vinyl ester resins are also being extensively used for the manufacturing of boats or other composite parts, as well as for manufacturing shipping tanks. Vinyl ester resins posses properties such as low adsorption of water, alkalis, and other organic solvents, along with excellent physical properties, which make them suitable for use in the manufacturing of boats and shipping tanks. The marine industry is also witnessing growth due to the rising consumers across the globe. The shifting global demographics, population growth, and economic growth in emerging economies have led to the development of new consumer classes. This is expected to create long-term growth opportunities for the consumer market. Apart from this, the marine industry is also witnessing growth in the number of larger ships. All these factors will lead to the increasing demand for boats and ships, thereby driving the growth of the vinyl ester resin market. Moreover, across the globe, there has been increasing need to reduce fossil fuel dependency and expand the renewable energy sector. In order to achieve this, governments and private organizations across the globe are increasingly investing in order to harness wind energy. This will drive the demand for vinyl ester resins for this end-user segment.
