Global Dicyclopentadiene Market to Reach US$ 1,220.0 Million by 2032, Propelled by Increasing Product Utilization in Automotive Industry

March 03, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Dicyclopentadiene Market Report by Type (DCPD UPR Grade, DCPD Resin Grade, DCPD High Purity), Application (Unsaturated Polyester Resin, Hydrocarbon Resins, Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) Elastomers, Cyclic Olefin Copolymer (COC) and Cyclin Olefin Polymer (COP), Poly-DCPD, and Others), End User (Building and Construction, Automotive, Marine, Electrical and Electronic, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," finds that the global dicyclopentadiene market size reached US$ 820.4 Million in 2023. Dicyclopentadiene is a flammable, colorless chemical compound with a camphor-like odor. It is the dimer of cyclopentadiene produced through the steam cracking of various petroleum products, such as crude oil, naphtha, and gas oils. It is also widely used to produce cyclic olefin, poly dicyclopentadiene (DCPC), inks, paints, unsaturated polyester resins (UPR), hydrocarbon resins, ethylene, and adhesives. In addition, it is utilized to manufacture pipes, sanitary ware, construction equipment, industrial containers, pesticides, and flame retardants. Owing to these properties, dicyclopentadiene finds extensive application across automotive, marine, construction, and electronics industries.

Global Dicyclopentadiene Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the expanding automotive industry. Dicyclopentadiene is widely used to produce flame-resistant automotive components, such as spoilers, bumpers, body panels, and fenders. In addition, the rising adoption of unsaturated polyester resins (UPRs) for manufacturing chemical and erosion-resistant electrical components represents another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, key players are developing environment-friendly bio-based ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) manufactured using plant-based and durable materials to minimize carbon emissions. This, coupled with the increasing product utilization in the construction industry to manufacture bathroom electricals, bathtubs, and swimming pools, is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, the surging usage of plastic products across various sectors and the widespread adoption of dicyclopentadiene as an industrial catalyst and solvent are other factors creating a favorable market outlook across the globe. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 1,220.0 Million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
