Trends, opportunities and forecast in phenolic resin market to 2025 by application (wood adhesive, molding compound, laminates, insulation, Coating, Paper Impregnation, and others) end use industry (construction, transportation, electrical and electronics, furniture, Industrial, and others), resin type (resol and Novolac resin), region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and ROW) and by country (US, Canada, Mexico, Western Europe, Central. Eastern Europe, China, India, Japan, Taiwan)

The future of the phenolic resin market is attractive with opportunities in the wood adhesive, molding compound, laminate, insulation, paper impregnation, and coating applications. The phenolic resin market is expected to decline in 2020 due to global economic recession led by COVID-19. However, market will witness recovery in the year 2021 and it is expected to reach an estimated $11.7 billion by 2025 with a CAGR of 2% to 4% from 2020 to 2025. The major drivers for growth in this market are increasing use of materials with fire retardant, heat resistant, and anti-corrosive properties in end use applications.
Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the phenolic resin industry, include the development of bio based phenolic resin, and increased penetration of phenolic resin in applications where fire, smoke, and toxicity properties are required.
