Summary

Table of Contents

Global consumption of bisphenol-A (BPA) is being spurred by a stable growth in demand from emerging markets, with China, India, Mexico and Russia expected to witness above average growth prospects. Coupled with this trend is a growing demand for the compound in its two major application areas, viz., epoxy resins and polycarbonates. Prospects for future demand for BPA are likely to be bolstered by the growing utilization of this chemical in rotor blade composites that find application in windmills. Wind energy has been garnering widespread global attention as an eco-friendly option in the energy mix and requires the use of strong and resilient wind turbine rotor blades that are reinforced using epoxy resins.

On another note, the use of BPA in food and beverage applications is being vigorously scrutinized, with several studies undertaken indicating a close association between the industrial chemical and adverse health effects, including cancer. Increasing pressure from the media, environmental activists and concerned public in regard to gradually phasing out bisphenol-A from food and beverage applications has forced governments across the globe to take corrective actions. A number of countries, such as some in the European Union, the United States and Canada, have prohibited the use of BPA in baby feeding bottles and many more are set to follow suit.

Notwithstanding the controversy surrounding BPA’s toxic effects in food and beverage applications, demand for the chemical is not likely to undergo any drastic change in the foreseeable future. This can be attributed to a softer stance adopted by global regulatory agencies that are biding time in an endeavor to provide ample opportunity to manufacturers of packaging materials to develop alternative solutions to BPA that can enable in resolving the issue. Another factor is that food and beverage packaging materials account for only about 3-4% of the global consumption of polycarbonates and even if the use of BPA is completely discontinued in this area, the chemical will continue to be in demand in other categories of polycarbonates.

Global market for Bisphenol-A applications analyzed in this study include Epoxy Resins, Polycarbonates and Other Applications. The global markets for the above mentioned application areas are analyzed in terms of both in metric tons and USD.

In terms of value, global demand for Bisphenol-A is likely to register a faster CAGR of 5.4% over the same period and reach a projected US$22.5 billion by 2022 from an estimated US$15.6 billion in 2015 and a forecast US$16.4 billion in 2016.
