Reactive diluents demand reflected sluggish growth in 2020, yet the industry stakeholders are optimistic of its quick recovery, revealed by Future Market Insights (FMI) in a recently published global report.
As reactive diluents are used for improving consistency of paints & coatings and adhesives & sealants, they are in high demand across a multitude of sectors including building & construction, automotive, electronics among others. Future Market Insights (FMI) sees this as chief driver of the reactive diluents market, which is expected to grow at a positive pace between 2020 and 2030.
However, in the first half of 2020 most of these activities remained impeded, resulting into 40% less demand, comparing against the same period last year.
Using reactive diluents results in better performance of various solutions by improving their thermal stability, tensile strength, adhesion, and other physical attributed. Due to their robust compatibility with water-based and solvent paints, the demand for reactive diluents will continue surging through the course of the forecast period.
A key point to consider here is that using reactive diluent can significantly reduce emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC). This has boosted its applications in line with technological advancements witnessed across diverse industries. Prospects for the market is expected to get more lucrative as industries adopt composites as a replacement for radical materials traditionally used in automotive and construction applications.
Construction activities are expected to soar higher in tandem with population growth witnessed around the world. This will in turn bolster growth prospects for the reactive diluents market. On the downside, the unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak might result in sluggish near-future opportunities for the market.
Nonetheless, backed by relevant research and development investment by chemical giants, the market could soon recover once the crisis passes. Despite this, the foray of competent alternatives could hamper growth prospects of the market. FMI in a recent study presents a holistic overview of the global reactive diluents market, covering various factors enabling growth and those restraining the market.
