Global curing agents market forecast with a CAGR of 6 percent through 2023

6/25/2019 - London, U.K. - According to the Technavio research report, "Global Curing Agents Market by Type (Epoxy, Polyurethane and Silicone) and Geographic Regions (APAC, Europe, North America, South America and MEA),” the market is predicted to grow by $1.66 billion, at a CAGR of 6 percent from 2019 to 2023. Curing agents contain solvents that are formed using various types of VOCs. However, governments in many countries have introduced regulations that restrict the quantity of VOCs in coating materials. As a result, vendors are focusing on reducing the use of solvent-based coatings by replacing them with waterborne coatings. Waterborne curing agents are designed to be stable in water without the help of co-solvents. These agents exhibit desirable performance qualities, including good compatibility, outstanding adhesion, curing at low temperature ...
