The revenue generated by the global BPA market was valued at USD 13.1 billion in 2012 which is expected to grow to USD 18.8 billion by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2013 to 2019. Polycarbonates and epoxy resins accounted for the largest share of the BPA market in terms of both volume and revenue. Polyetherimide, flame retardants, polyacrylate and polysulfone resins are among the other key product types used in the market.

With over 70% shares in total volume consumption, polycarbonates accounted for the largest chunk of bisphenol A consumed in 2012. Polycarbonates are extensively used in water bottles, baby bottles, sports equipment, electrical and electronic equipment, and food and drink containers among others. Moreover, increasing demand from medical and dental equipment and dental sealants and composites is expected to exhibit strong demand for polycarbonates in the coming years. Automobiles and food and drink application dominates the global BPA consumption and the positive growth in this industry across the globe is driving the global BPA market. Electronic and sports equipment application segment is one of the fastest growing end-user industry in the BPA market.

Epoxy resins containing BPA are used for making paints, adhesives, variety of protective coatings, and electrical laminates for printed circuit boards (PCBs). Cured epoxy resin is used to provide protective liners on the inside of cans that are used for packing foods and beverages to maintain the quality of the food. Because of a combination of desirable properties such as toughness, chemical resistance and adhesion, BPA is also used to provide protective coatings.
