Global Epoxy Molding Compound Market size- Industry Trends & Outlook Report 2026


Global Epoxy Molding Compound Market has witnessed a constant growth in recent years and is anticipated to reach the revenues of USD 289.65 million by 2026 with a CAGR of 3.816%, over the prediction period 2019-2026. The main factor driving the demand for epoxy molding compounds is the substitution of conventional materials with a material consisting of epoxy molding compounds.


The Epoxy Molding Compound (EMC) is intended to encapsulate different sensitive electronic devices. Starem EMC comprises a large variety of halogen-free compounds to fulfill the needs and specifications of different customers. Epoxies are considered useful as they are mechanically and environmentally shielded, and secure electrical or automotive goods. The factors mentioned tend to drive the growth of the global epoxy molding market. 


Global Epoxy Molding Compound- Market Overview


EMC (Epoxy Molding Compound) is an encapsulant used in most items where semiconductors are employed. The general home appliances like cell phones, refrigerators and televisions, industrial machinery and cars employ semiconductors. The global semiconductor market is growing with the growth of IT technology and the development of electronic goods based on new technologies, and demand for EMC is rising.


Epoxy molding compounds are primarily solid epoxy polymers which are heated to and converted into a liquid and then discharged into a shielded cable. Epoxy resins can react (cross-linked) either with catalytic homopolymerization or by a wide variety of co-reactants, including polyfunctional amines, acids (and acid anhydrides), phenols, alcohols, and thiols (usually referred to as mercaptans). Such co-reactants are also called hardeners or curatives, and the cross-linking reaction is usually referred to as curing.


Global Epoxy Molding Compound Market Outlook and Trends


Growth Driver 


Rising Need for Thermally Stable and Corrosion-resistant Components Drives the Epoxy Molding Compound Market


The main factor driving the demand for epoxy molding compounds is the substitution of conventional resin molding materials. Additionally, the properties such as heat-resistance, flame-resistance, high dielectric strength, and corrosion-resistance are other critical factors projected to fuel their adoption and demand assuring growth over the projected timeframe. Increasing demand for epoxy molding compounds across various end-use industries such as automotive and aerospace is expected to be a significant factor for these compounds in the coming years.


Impact of COVID-19 in industry


Due to global pandemic, social distancing norm is followed everywhere including healthcare, corporates and production houses. Most of them have allowed Work From Home to their employees, allotted tasks in multi shifts in premises and built separated working desks. The disruption is being experienced in regular business activities.


Significant volatility and decline in demand have been noticed as a result of reduced orders and order cancellations, leading to lower revenues, increased inventories, reduced value of inventories and lower gross margins.


The slowdown in economic activity and transportation restrictions in affected countries will likely have a bearing on the production and profitability of specific global companies, engaged in manufacturing or in supply of raw materials used in manufacturing. Small and medium-sized firms may have greater difficulty surviving the disruption. The manufacturing sector consisting of automotive, electrical devices, aerospace and others has been affected but intensity of effect defers from enterprise to enterprise. But, recovery is sure once the corona effect subsides.


Global Epoxy Molding Compound Market: By Industry Vertical


Epoxy molding compound finds its significant applications in the electrical, automotive, aerospace, and other industries. Over the projection period, the electrical segment is likely to emerge as the fastest-growing application market for epoxy molding compounds. The epoxy molding compounds manifest properties such as corrosion-resistance, thermal strength and heat resistance when exposed to elevated temperatures and harsh environmental conditions.

The automotive application market holds the second-largest market share, as the epoxy molding compounds prevent rust and corrosion on the body and critical metal parts of vehicles, thereby saving maintenance costs and increasing the average lifespan of automotive. They are deployed in mounts for electric motors, valve corners for automobiles and headlight liners.
