Global BMI Resins Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2033

The global BMI resins market is estimated to garner a revenue of ~ USD 194 Billion by the end of 2033 by growing at a CAGR of ~2% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2033. Further, the market generated a revenue of ~ USD 148 Billion in the year 2022. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing need for lightweight composites in the aircraft and aerospace industries in the form of matrix for advanced composites. The use of lightweight composites in the manufacturing of aircraft contributes to improvement in fuel efficiency and they are more oxidative and facilitate moisture absorption quality. For instance, global average annual fuel efficiency improved by 1.7% during the period 2010 to 2020.   


High-performance structural composites use bismaleimides, which are addition-type polyimides that are particularly resistant to heat and have a high level of toughness. The production of bismaleimide involves the polymerization of a prepolymer terminating in two maleimide groups. A bismaleimide is capable of being used at intermediate temperatures (between epoxy and polyimide). Despite their excellent mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties, BMI resins are relatively low in moisture absorption. Moreover, the innovative and advanced product development by key manufacturers along with increasing R&D spending is expected to drive the global BMI resins market over the forecast period. For instance, in march 2019, Teijin Limited developed the first pre-impregnated carbon fiber sheet made from BMI matrix resin. The material is heat and impact-resistant, making it ideal for aerospace engine materials.

Global BMI Resins Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Growing Revenue of the Aerospace Industry Throughout the World- The combined annual sales revenue of the aerospace industry in 2019 exceeded 900 billion worldwide. That is an increase of 6.5% from the year before. In addition, there are around 2 million employees in the United States are working in the aerospace sector. BMI resins are thermosetting polymers that have been extensively used as a matrix for advanced composite materials in aerospace and aeronautics owing to their good physical properties. By substituting titanium aircraft engine parts with composite materials made from BMI resins, it is possible to develop lightweight and more heat-resistant propulsion technology. Thus, the expansion of the aerospace industry requires the manufacturing of lightweight composite materials on a large scale, which is expected to propel the demand for BMI resins during the forecast period.

  • Increasing Expenditures on Research & Development Around the World - As reported by the World Bank, R&D expenditures accounted for 2.63 percent of global GDP in 2020, up from 2.2% of global GDP in 2018.

  • Rising Government Investments in the Aviation Sector- According to estimates, Indian aviation is set to receive USD 5 billion in investments over the next four years. India plans to invest USD 1.8 billion by 2026 in airport infrastructure and aviation navigation services.

  • Production of Resins in Large Quantities- For instance, United States emerged as the world’s leader in resin production in 2020 with over 118 billion pounds of resin manufactured.

  • Higher Utilization of BMI Resin in Automotive Industry – For instance, in 2021, more than 75 million units if motor vehicles were manufactured across the globe. BMI resin are heavily used in automotive industry owing to its advanced properties such as, high-strength and high-temperature performance.


  • Higher Cost Associated with Raw Materials

The raw materials to make composites are not cost-effective and can hamper the production process negatively. It becomes difficult for vendors and consumers to find ways to get an adequate amount of raw material which further results in the requirement for higher initial investment. Hence, this factor is estimated to be one of the major restraints on the market.

  • Drawbacks Related to Unmodified BMI Such as High Melting Points and Curing Temperature
  • Availability of BMI Resins at Low Cost
