“The global unsaturated polyester resins market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.78% from 2016 to 2021”
The global Unsaturated Polyester Resins (UPR) market is projected to reach USD 12.15 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.78% from 2016 to 2021. Growth of this market can be attributed to the expansion of the construction industry, increasing urban population, recovery of the global economy, and growth of the composite industry. In contrast to this, increase in styrene content and use of epoxy resins act as major restraining factors hampering market growth.

“Based on end-use industry, the wind energy segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period”
Based on end-use industry, the wind energy segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021, both in terms of value and volume. It is expected to provide a broader range of end-use products manufactured from UPR. Wind blades manufacturing is the major application for UPR. The consumption of power energy is increasing at a rapid pace due to rise in supply of energy across the globe. The depletion of fossil fuels and their volatile prices have resulted in increase in energy cost, as demand is constantly growing. This will necessitate huge investments and developments in power generation and grid infrastructure.
