The Cyanate Ester Resins market is estimated to be valued at US$ 211.8 million in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.6% over the forecast period 2023-2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Cyanate ester resins are thermosetting resins characterized by high glass transition temperature, low moisture absorption, and exceptional temperature resistance. They are derived from bisphenol-based monomers that react with cyanate ester groups to form molecular rigid structures. Cyanate ester resins find application in variety of end-use industries such as aerospace & defense, electrical & electronics, and others owing to their superior properties.
The market is primarily driven by growing demand for cyanate ester resins from aerospace & defense industry. Cyanate ester resins are highly preferred in aircraft structures and components due to their high strength, durability, and heat resistance even at elevated temperatures. Additionally, increasing usage of cyanate ester resins in printed circuit boards (PCBs) and electrical insulation is also fueling market growth. Cyanate esters possess very low coefficient of thermal expansion, high electrical resistivity, and excellent moisture & chemical resistance. These properties makes them suitable for applications where high reliability and continuous operation over wide temperature ranges is required.
– Cyanate ester resins have high heat resistance and excellent dielectric properties, making them suitable for high temperature applications. They offer strength and stiffness even at elevated temperatures.
– These resins provide good resistance against hydrolysis and moisture absorption. They retain their dimensional stability and mechanical properties when exposed to humidity.
– Cyanate ester resins bond well to metals like copper and produce strong adhesive bonds with low void content.
– The processing and curing of cyanate ester resins involve high temperatures of around 180°C which increases production costs.
– They have a higher viscosity and require specialized manufacturing processes compared to epoxy resins. This increases costs and complexity.
– Growth of end-use industries like aerospace, electronics and defense is driving demand for high performance resins suitable for applications in extreme operating conditions. This provides opportunities for cyanate ester resins.
