Phenolic resins are type of synthetic polymers obtained by polymerization reaction of phenol and formaldehyde under the presence of heat. Phenol and formaldehyde are the key raw materials used in the production of phenolic resins. Properties of phenolic resins can be modified by changing the catalyst during chemical reaction. Phenolic resins have wide ranging applications in host of industries such as automotive, construction, electronics, etc. Phenolic resins possess superior physical and chemical properties such as high mechanical strength, low smoke, good heat resistance, high blending and flame resistance, etc.

Strong demand from automotive industry has been remained key growth driver for phenolic resins market. Strong growth prospectus of automotive industry in Asia Pacific, especially from India and China is driving demand for laminates, insulation, and molding compound. Phenolic resin is widely used in various components used in automotive industry as well as lamination and insulation. This in turn expected to trigger growth of phenolic resins market in the region. Moreover, phenolic resins are widely used in tires manufacturing for tackifying, curing, reinforcing, bonding as well as adhesives. Price volatility of raw material is expected to be major restraint for phenolic resins market. Moreover, increasing environmental concerns are also expected to present major challenge for phenolic resins manufacturers.
