Photoinitiator Market


Market Insight

The polymer industry has gone under several transformations over the past few years with the development of innovative manufacturing processes, and chemicals. Photoinitiators are one of the innovative materials used in polymer formulations to improve their physical characteristics. A photoinitiator is a molecule that upon light absorption induces photopolymerization, resulting in a highly cross-linked photopolymer. The photoinitiators are classified into two basic types including free radical, and cationic. Products such as paints, coatings, inks, and adhesives widely use photoinitiators in the formulation. Photoinitiators offer faster curing, long-lasting activity, and a smooth finish to the products. Moreover, products with photoinitiators display superior properties including higher yield, better abrasion, and stain resistance. Such advantages of photoinitiators augment their use for various applications.


The spread of COVID-19 has severely affected the photoinitiator market across the globe. COVID-19 pandemic affected the global photoinitiator market by impeding production and demand, disrupting the supply chain, and by hampering the financial markets. The demand for photoinitiators decreased from the end-users, as the pandemic severely affected the revenue of end-user industries. Several end-users either reduced their production or closed their production unit. Moreover, the shortage of raw materials was another major challenge faced by the market during the pandemic. Furthermore, the lower production of photoinitiators in countries such as China, Taiwan, and Japan created a short supply in the global market. Other countries dependent on the import witnessed a severe shortage of photoinitiators during the pandemic. The lower production and shortage of photoinitiators in the market were estimated to hamper the market growth in the short term. However, as the pandemic crisis waned, the production and supply of photoinitiators ramped up to their pre-pandemic state.


The increasing demand for paints and coatings from various end-use industries is majorly driving the market growth. The paints and coatings having photoinitiators offer several advantages over traditional paints and coatings including ease of applying, quick-curing, and ease to clean-up and re-coat. These advantages of photoinitiators are anticipated to boost its adoption in paints and coatings. Moreover, the growing construction and automotive sectors are supporting the growth of the photoinitiator market. Construction and automotive industries widely use products having photoinitiators for various applications including paints, coatings, adhesives, and others. Thus, the growing construction and automotive industries augment the growth of the photoinitiators market as they are the leading end-use industries. However, higher cost associated with certain cationic photoinitiators is majorly hampering the market growth. Costly procurement of equipment and research and development together increase the price of photoinitiators. Nevertheless, the growing demand for photoinitiators from the food, and beverage packaging industry is anticipated to boost market growth in the future. The many vendors are developing zero-toxicity photoinitiator to use in the packaging of food, beverage, and personal care products.


In terms of region, the global photoinitiator market is dominated by the Asia Pacific region. The presence of a large consumer pool along with improving economic conditions is driving the market growth in the Asia Pacific. Moreover, the growth of automobiles and real-estate in the region augments the demand for photoinitiators in the Asia Pacific. Furthermore, the growing urban population in the Asia Pacific is further supporting the market growth for photoinitiators in the region. On the other hand, the North American region accounted for the second-largest share in the global photoinitiator market. The growing construction industry in North America is anticipated to boost the demand for photoinitiators for paint, coating, adhesive, and other applications. Additionally, the increasing production and export of electronic goods in North America are further augmenting the growth of the market.
