The UV cured resin market includes UV curable resins used as adhesives, masking materials, inks, precoated gaskets, refinishing coatings and sealants. Other minor applications of UV curable resins such as hydrant- or photoinitiator-specific products are not covered under the scope of this report. Only UV cured resins derived from urethane acrylates, epoxy acrylates and acrylic acrylates are covered. By composition, monomers, photoinitiators and oligomers are only considered when estimating market value and deriving forecasted value. From an end-user perspective, only industries in which UV cured resin-based products have prominent applications are considered. To estimate market value and derive forecasted value, UV cured resins were covered based on each product’s applications in the semiconductor and electronics, healthcare, packaging, automotive, chemical sector, graphic arts, and aerospace and defense industries.
