Unsaturated polyester resins (UPRs) are synthetic resins formed by the reaction of a dibasic organic acid and a polyhydric alcohol. APRs are thermoset resins that are capable of being recovered from a liquid or solid-state. This type of resin is mostly used in the marine industry for manufacturing yachts and workboats.

Unsaturated Polyester Resin Market Dynamics

One of the most significant drivers of the global UPR market is the growth in end-use industries. The ever-increasing need for high standards in all modern applications is driving the demand for UPRs. With the need for better quality standards in the end-use industries, players operating in this space are focusing on developing improved application and performance properties of UPR, such as faster curing time, better finishing, and high corrosion resistance.

Companies are creating high-performance materials, technological solutions, innovative applications, and product development, all of which will positively impact the market's growth during the forecast period. For instance, DSM’s Beyond 177, 170, and 285 resins are based on DCPD, ortho, and vinyl ester chemistries, respectively. These resins are widely used for different applications, such as in the marine, building and construction, and automotive industries.

One of the most vital challenges faced by the market is the need for styrene in the manufacture of UPRs. Styrene is a highly flammable and toxic material, which is harmful to human health.
