Aromatic C9 hydrocarbon resin (C9 HCR), Market is Projected to Reach USD Billion by 2027, Growing at a CAGR of around 5.5% During 2021-2027

Published | 15 January 2021

According to BlueWeave Consulting, the global C9 HCR resin market worth USD 1.2 billion in 2020 and is further projected to reach USD  billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of around 5.4% during 2021-2027 (forecast period). C9 hydrocarbon resin (C9 HCR), an aromatic resin, is manufactured via various polymerization and chemical processes. The composition of the resin depends upon the feedstock used. C9 resins are used to produce adhesives, paints, and coatings, printing inks, rubber compounding, pressure sensitive tapes, and labels, etc.


Adhesives and paints market will be leading the charge in the forecast period and will dominate the market for C9 HCR.


C9 resins are used to produce adhesives, hot melts, paints, and coatings, rubber, plastic modifiers, glutting agents, etc. C9 resins are used when there are concerns over thermal and color stability. The rubber industry extensively uses C9 resins due to the mutual solubility of natural rubber particles in C9 resins. When used with paints, C9 resins enhance their adhesiveness, color stability, thermal stability, and provide resistivity against acids, water, and alkali. 


Rise of rosin resin as an alternative and the high cost of the product is likely to hamper the market growth.


The cost of production associated with the manufacturing of C9 resin is high. This increases the price of the product, which negatively affects the market growth. With the growing need for bio-friendly products, natural resins, such as Rosin resins, are an alternative for C9 resin. Rosin resin, obtained from a pine tree and similar plants, has antibacterial properties. It is increasingly being used in the food and beverages industry.  


Adhesives and sealants sector were leading the market and are likely to again drive the market in the forecast period. 


C9 resin has a wide range of usages. C9 aromatic hydrocarbon resin is used extensively to produce adhesives and hot melts. C9 aromatic resins have an excellent adhesive property and are highly stable even at high temperatures. C9 aromatic resins are highly compatible with a range of solvents, paints, coatings, and polymers. C9 resins have excellent color stability and are used in large quantities in the paints industry. C9 resins also provide good resistance against water, acid, and alkali.
