Global Coupling Agents Market to Reach $581.4 Million by 2026

Coupling agents represent advanced compounds intended to achieve a chemical bonding between two materials, primarily organic and inorganic materials like a polyolefin and other polymer. Available in liquid, granular and powdered forms, coupling agents are known to exhibit superior conformability with resins, polymers and natural or synthetic waxes. Coupling agents promote adhesion and ensure a stable bonding by lowering the interfacial tension between particulate or fibrous inorganic components and organic matrix polymers. These characteristics make the suitable for filled and reinforced plastics. Coupling agents are widely used in applications requiring strong bond between natural polymers and inorganic substrates. Some of the typical applications of these agents include in-filled polymer frameworks such as thermoplastics and thermosets. These agents are commonly used in fiber-reinforced plastics and rubber products that hold important applications with the aerospace & defense and automotive industries.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Coupling Agents estimated at US$467.3 Million in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of US$581.4 Million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 3.7% over the analysis period. Sulfur Silane, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to grow at a 4.4% CAGR to reach US$169.5 Million by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Vinyl Silane segment is readjusted to a revised 3.8% CAGR for the next 7-year period. This segment currently accounts for a 22.2% share of the global Coupling Agents market.

The U.S. Market is Estimated at $111.8 Million in 2021, While China is Forecast to Reach $103.7 Million by 2026

The Coupling Agents market in the U.S. is estimated at US$111.8 Million in the year 2021. The country currently accounts for a 23.44% share in the global market. China, the world second largest economy, is forecast to reach an estimated market size of US$103.7 Million in the year 2026 trailing a CAGR of 4.7% through the analysis period.

The market is experiencing a continuous expansion on account of rising demand for these products from various end-use industries, supportive regulations and increasing awareness regarding different benefits of using coupling agents. The market also gains from increasing use of sophisticated materials in different end-use industries along with strong focus of automakers on fuel efficiency and road safety. Stringent regulations and ongoing efforts to improve fuel efficiency are anticipated to drive the market demand. In addition, rising awareness pertaining to the use of coupling agents for exploiting energy applications such as solar and wind is bound to benefit the market over the coming years. Moreover, rising adoption of green tires within the automotive industry, product innovations and increasing use in the pharmaceuticals and cosmetic industries are expected to prevent attractive opportunities for market participants. Over the years, research and development initiatives of manufacturers have led to the rollout of advanced coupling agents with improved processing characteristics and higher efficiencies. Some of the improved characteristics include enhanced shelf stability, filler dispersion, rheology control, and fewer mixing steps and faster cure that allow improved cost savings. Some of the coupling agents are environmentally friendly and offer limited VOC (volatile organic compound) emissions.

Epoxy Silane Segment to Reach $116.2 Million by 2026

In the global Epoxy Silane segment, USA, Canada, Japan, China and Europe will drive the 3.5% CAGR estimated for this segment. These regional markets accounting for a combined market size of US$66.2 Million in the year 2020 will reach a projected size of US$84.1 Million by the close of the analysis period.
