Dicyclopentadiene Market to Reach US$902.3 Million by 2025; Rising Need for Energy Efficient Vehicle to drive Global Market - TMR

ALBANY, New York, December 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The Dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) market has a highly fragmented vendor landscape, Transparency Market Research (TMR) observes. Five prominent players operating in the market collectively accounted for 41% share in the global Dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) market. Some of the prominent players operating in the dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) market are Maruzen Petrochemical, Zibo Lujua Hongjin New Material Co. Ltd., Shell Chemicals, Kolon Industries, Inc., and Fushun Yikesi New Material Co. These players are increasingly adopting strategies such as mergers and acquisitions, and collaboration with local players in order to improve their global presence and distribution channels.

Advancements on Using DCPD to Propel Growth of Market  

Dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) is a linkage of two polymers of dicyclopentadiene. It is a white crystalline chemical with the same odor of camphor produced through the steam cracking of C5 petroleum products such as naphtha, crude oil, and gas oils.

Growing need for cost-effective and efficient vehicles is attracting the manufacturers to invest in the researchers, which is boosting the growth of the global dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) market. In order to reduce the weight of vehicle, the poly-DCTD is the most preferred material. These factors have boosted adoption of the DCPD and likely to propel the growth of the global dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) market.

Additionally, numerous governments in countries in regions such as North America and Europe have imposed strict regulations on styrene emissions. Thus, it encourages usage of DCPD as a raw material to decrease emission of styrene content by 42% to 35% in unsaturated polyester resins. This factor is propelling adoption of the DCPD and is likely to propel growth of the global dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) market.

Expensive Manufacturing to Restrain Growth of Market 

Numerous hazardous chemicals are emitted while manufacturing the DCPD. Growing awareness about the environment is encouraging governments to impose strict regulations. Thus, the manufacturing of DCPD is involving some advanced techniques, which in turn is increasing the cost of the manufacturing. The aforementioned factors are limiting the growth of the global dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) market. Additionally, lack of skilled labors to handle complicated manufacturing and usage of DCPD is hampering the growth of the global dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) market. Nonetheless, growing demand from the automotive industry is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for growth over the forecast period.
