Strong demand from automotive industry has remained key growth driver for phenolic resins market. Strong growth prospectus of the automotive industry in Asia Pacific, especially from India and China is driving demand for laminates, insulation, and the molding compound. Phenolic resin is widely used in various components used in automotive industry as well as lamination and insulation. This in turn expected to trigger the growth of phenolic resins market in the region. Moreover, phenolic resins are widely used in tires manufacturing for tackifying, curing, reinforcing, bonding as well as adhesives. Price volatility of raw material is expected to be the major restraint for phenolic resins market. Moreover, increasing environmental concerns are also expected to present the major challenge for phenolic resins manufacturers.

Results and novellas are key product segment of phenolic resins market. Resols was one of the major product segments of the phenolic resins market accounting for over 45% shares of the total volume consumed in 2014. Resols exhibit superior cross-linking capabilities and strong bond strength. Owing to this, resols are mainly used in wood adhesives and laminates. However, Novolacs posses better chemical properties such as good chemical stability and it forms linear linkages. Novolacs resins are mainly used for molding applications, manufacturing of friction materials such as brake pads, clutch plates, and brake shoes, etc. Novolacs resins are expected to exhibit fastest CAGR during the forecast period.
