Polycarbonates are derivates of Bisphenol A and are known for their lightweight,
toughness, optical clarity resistance to heat, and electrical resistance. Number of good
physical and chemical properties makes BPA material of choice for making a large number of
commercial goods such as water bottles, sports equipment, electrical and electronic
equipment, and drink and food containers among others. The rebound in automobile and
electronic industries in North America and Europe, as well as rapid economic growth in
Asia Pacific is expected to remain a major driving force for Bisphenol A market. Volatile
raw material prices are expected to be a key challenge for market participants.

Polycarbonates and epoxy resins are the important derivatives of Bisphenol A.
Polycarbonate was the most dominant application segment of Bisphenol A, both in terms of
production and consumption, in 2012. Polycarbonate led the overall bisphenol A market and
accounted for a market share of 72.5% in 2012. Owing to the strong demand from various
end-use industries that use polycarbonates such as sport equipment, electronic equipment
etc. it is expected to exhibit moderate CAGR of 4.8% from 2013 to 2019. Other key
applications of bisphenol A include flame retardants, unsaturated polyester resins, and
polyacrylate, polyetherimide and polysulfone resins, which collectively accounted for very
small share of total volume consumed in 2012.

Asia Pacific accounted for 53.5% of the total bisphenol market in 2012, followed by
North America and Europe. Asia Pacific is also expected to be the fastest growing regional
market in terms of bisphenol A consumption and production. This can be attributed to the
growing economies in this region. Cheap availability of raw materials, land, skilled
labor, and equipment has resulted in Asia Pacific emerging as a key destination for
Bisphenol A manufacturers. The key industry participants include Bayer Material Science,
SABIC Innovative Plastics, and Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc., Dow Chemicals, Nan Ya
plastics Plastics and Mitsui Chemicals., among others.
