Building and Construction is the largest end-use industry of unsaturated polyester resin (UPR).

Building & construction is the most crucial end-use segment for the UPRs market. In emerging economies, substantial investments are being made in the infrastructure sector, propelling the development of the construction industry. The rapid expansion of the sector in the growing countries is helping in the growth of UPR’s market. The increase in the domestic market, increasing income levels & spendings, and easily available resources at low price is making APAC region the highest contributor of building & construction segment.

Dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) is the fastest-growing resin segment of the Unsaturated polyester resin market.

DCPD resins have low VOC, which is the biggest reason for its increased demand. DCPD can be used as a primary base of a resin formulation or blend with orthophthalic or isophthalic resins to enhance properties. The major advantage of DCPD resins over orthophthalic resins is their lower shrinkage property, that offers superior smoothness with minimal or no visual print-through from reinforcing fibers. The increase awareness about the usage of DCPD will lead it to growth in near future.
