Bisphenol A Market

Projected Demand From Construction To Boost The Growth Of Bisphenol A Market

The global Bisphenol A Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 7.61 Mn or Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.3% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:

Bisphenol A (BPA) is an intermediate feedstock used in the production of epoxy resins and polycarbonate plastics. Epoxy resins are used as surface coatings in bottled water containers, soda and beer cans. Polycarbonate plastic made from BPA is lightweight and impact-resistant and used as a substitute for glass in products like safety equipment, medical devices, lenses, and CDs and DVDs. The demand for BPA is driven by growing consumption of consumer goods, food packaging, electronics and building and construction industry.

Market key trends:

One of the key trends driving growth in the Global Bisphenol A market size is the rising demand from the construction industry. The booming construction industry, driven by growth in real estate and infrastructure development is fueling the demand for BPA-based products like polycarbonate sheets and epoxy coatings. Polycarbonate sheets find wide application in greenhouses, industrial warehouses, and commercial buildings owing to their transparent and impact-resistant properties. Meanwhile, the growing repair and remodelling activities in the residential sector is propelling sales of BPA-based paints and coatings. However, stringent regulations around the world limiting the use of BPA in food contact materials may hinder the market growth to some extent over the forecast period.
