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

Vinyl Ester Market size is anticipated to cross USD 3 Billion by the end of 2033, growing at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2033. In the year 2022, the industry size of vinyl ester was USD 2 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing usage of vinyl ester in the various end-use industry, supported by the rising industrialization and increasing industrial production across the globe. It was observed that in the USA, in September 2022, industrial production rose by 0.4 percent, and in the third quarter, it rose by 2.9 percent annually. The mining index increased by 0.6 percent. Total industrial production in September increased by 5.3 percent from the same month last year, or 105.2% of its 2017 average.

A resin known as vinyl ester resin, or frequently just vinyl ester, is created when acrylic or methacrylic acids are added to an epoxy resin. The vinyl ester resins have higher strength and greater chemical resistance properties, and hence, are suitable for various applications. Given that they are waterproof and have superior mechanical qualities, vinyl ester resins are frequently used in laminating and repairing materials. Vinyl ester fiberglass-reinforced structures are widely used in the kit for aircraft. Moreover, rising investment in the aircraft and aviation industry is estimated to support market growth. For instance, among all industrial businesses, the United States aviation industry continues to create the maximum trade balance (USD 77.6 billion in 2019) and the second-highest quantity of exports (USD 148 billion), with aerospace exports expanding at a 5.31 percent average rate over the last decade. Further, the vinyl resin market is also anticipated to rise owing to increased use in flue-gas desulfurization installations, as well as high demand for corrosion-resistant materials for limestone slurry pipes and stack liners in the flue-gas desulfurization process.

Vinyl Ester Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Marine Industry – Approximately 80% of all products traded internationally are transported by sea, and this proportion is significantly larger for the majority of developing nations. Owing to the exceptional properties of vinyl ester including great adhesion, high chemical resistance, and superior anti-corrosion properties makes it the perfect choice for manufacturing marine equipment. Moreover, the rapid expansion of the marine industry across the globe is anticipated to boost market growth.

  • Growing Paint and Coating Consumption – Vinyl ester provides a chemical coating and solvent resistance. Thus, they are ideal for corrosion control containment application which is necessary for paints and coatings. Therefore, as a result of the high consumption of paint and coating, the utilization rate of the vinyl ester is also estimated to increase in the assessment period. It was found that nearly 860 million gallons of paint were consumed in the United States in total in 2020 and more than 350 million gallons of architectural paint were consumed in the United States by the DIY ('do it yourself') segment.

  • Increasing Paper Usage – Currently, Americans use more than 31 million tons of writing and printing paper annually, or nearly 661 pounds per person.

  • High Demand for Mining Equipment – In 2019, India imported mining equipment worth USD 189 million.

  • Growing Import-Export of Chemicals – It was noted that exports of chemicals from the EU outpaced imports by a sizeable margin from USD 242.03 billion in 2010 to USD 411.05 billion in 2020 and over this time, exports grew by 5% a year on average.


  • High Cost of Vinyl Ester – Although vinyl ester has a wide range of applications in numerous industries, the high cost of the vinyl ester is anticipated to lower the adoption rate in the next years.
  • Easy Availability of Substitutes – With the recent developments, various alternative substitutes are now available in the market. Polyurethane composites are one such effective replacement for vinyl ester. Advantages such as superior tensile strength, greater impact resistance, and enhanced abrasion resistance as compared with vinyl ester. This trend is estimated to pose a challenge to market growth.

Vinyl Ester Segmentation

End-user (Mining Equipment, Building & Infrastructure, Paints & Coatings, Transportation, Paper

The global vinyl ester market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end-user into mining equipment, building & infrastructure, paints & coatings, transportation, and paper. Out of these, the building & infrastructure segment is expected to hold the highest market share by the end of 2033. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the growing application of vinyl ester on plywood and other furniture, supported by the increase in housing units and the refurbishment of old houses across the globe. For instance, in the USA, a projected 15.5% more housing units, or 1,595,101, were started in 2021 than in 2020 (1,379,601). Several beneficial properties of a vinyl ester such as anti-corrosive coating, high curing speed, and good mechanical strength make vinyl ester an ideal component used for the construction processes of buildings and infrastructures. Furthermore, the high flexibility of vinyl ester is being used for constructing strong parts which need to withstand impact with repeated flexing and without cracking or breaking. Thus, the demand for houses, buildings, commercial spaces, and other infrastructure by the burgeoning population is anticipated to fuel the revenue generation of the segment.

Application (Wind Power, Marine, Storage Tank, Chimney Liners, Oil & Gas, Scrubbers);

The global vinyl ester market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into wind power, marine, storage tank, chimney liners, oil & gas, and scrubbers. Out of these, the strong tank segment is attributed to garnering the highest market share during the forecast period. As vinyl ester is being used in high-temperature formulations, it is very useful in chemical storage vessels and chemical reactors. Furthermore, it is being used in electro-refining tanks and as topcoats for metal containers. Vinyl ester is also being used in improving the strength of pipes and tanks with chemical resistance making them safe for use. In addition, massive investments made in developing strong esters, and rising government support in the research and development sector are also anticipated to fuel segment growth.
