Scrutinizing the Coronavirus Impact: Unsaturated Polyester Resin Production Impacted by Supply Chain Disruptions in Manufacturing Sector

Major producers of unsaturated polyester resin are expected to push for greater market presence in new markets through investments in R&D for novel product applications through and after the pandemic

ROCKVILLE, MD / ACCESSWIRE / June 22, 2020 / The global unsaturated polyester resin market is projected to expand 1.5x and rise at a healthy 5.3% CAGR, for the projection period 2020 – 2030. Following the coronavirus outbreak in 2019, the applications of unsaturated polyester resins has dropped in the manufacturing sector, owing to major supply chain disruptions. In addition, the sudden slump in new manufacturing orders, and the growing threat of recession are also impacting the market.

As per the study published by Fact.MR, end user verticals such as construction, electrical, marine, and transport will face substantial obstacles throughout the duration of the pandemic. Issues of raw materials and supplies will hurt short term prospects. On the other hand, unsaturated polyester resin applications for marine applications will partially mitigate losses during this period.

“The global manufacturing sector has been taking measures to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on regular operations. Declining oil prices, hesitant investors and capital availability issues will remain. The drop in the global economy and the rising production of unsaturated polyester resins by end users on-site will affect demand through 2020,” says the FACT.MR study.
