December 17, 2013

DUBLIN, Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/xrf5rh/epichlorohydrin) has announced the addition of the “Global Epichlorohydrin (ECH) Market Report 2013-2017″ report to their offering.


The increasing demand of Epichlorohydrin in China and growth in the end-user segments such as paint and electronic industry are key factors to drive the global ECH market. Epoxy resin is the main application which consumes a large part of Epichlorohydrin. Properties of epoxy resin make it suitable for wide variety of applications such as paints, electrical & electronics, construction, wind turbine, composites, adhesives, and others. Since, epoxies have the largest share in applications; growth of the epoxy resin industry will ultimately contribute to the growth of ECH industry.

Most of the companies are the captive producers of Epichlorohydrin and utilize entire ECH produced for epoxy resin manufacturing. Top players such as Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Formosa Plastics, and Momentive Performance Materials Inc. are captive producers of ECH.

The ECH consumption is estimated to be 1,520 kilo tons in 2012 and will grow by 4.8% annually till 2017. ECH has wide range of applications from epoxy resins, synthetic glycerin, water treatment resins, pharmaceuticals and others (epichlorohydrin-based rubber, textiles, papers, inks, dyes, ion exchange resins, agricultural products such as insecticides, bactericides, and fungicides).
