Global Dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) Market: Overview
DCPD is primarily used in the manufacturing of composite materials. Asia Pacific accounted for a major share of the global DCPD market in 2016. Prices of DCPD depends upon the purity levels of the product which ranges from 75% to 99%. High purity DCPD is mostly used for the manufacturing of COC & COP. Demand for unsaturated polyester resins is high due to its excellent functional and mechanical properties such as low weight and corrosion and heat resistance. Thus, these resins are used in a wide range of end-user industries such as building & construction, marine, automotive, and plastics. The market share of EPDM elastomer application is anticipated to decline slightly during the forecast period due to restricted usage of petroleum resins in developed regions such as North America and Europe. The global DCPD market is fragmented with top two manufacturers accounting for nearly 25% of the total market share in 2016.
