Water-Based Resins Have a High Potential to Resolve Today’s Challenges Regarding Environmental and Human Health Hazards

Water-based resins technology uses water as a carrier medium and diluent instead of traditionally used VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). Resin products manufactured by this technology are environmentally friendly and are safer to human health due to low or zero level of VOC emissions. Resins with water-based technology possess a variety of physical and chemical properties such as better resistance to fire, water, chemicals, stress, strain, and radiation. Water-based resins have a high potential to resolve a wide number of today’s challenges regarding environmental and human health hazards.
The water-based resins market has witnessed a significant growth in the recent years and this growth is projected to persist in the coming years. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for eco-friendly technology from developing economies. Also, restrictions on the level of VOC’s in some countries such as the U.S., the U.K., and Germany are increasing demand. Water-based resins perfo…

Declining freshwater resources has compelled governments to implement stricter water treatment regulations

The global flocculant and coagulant market is estimated to grow from USD 4.52 Billion in 2017 to USD 6.01 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2017 to 2022. The market growth can be attributed to declining freshwater resources coupled with stringent regulatory and sustainable mandates concerning the environment.
The flocculant and coagulant market has witnessed significant growth in recent years, owing to stringent regulations related to environment and water treatment. Increasing population and industrialization, coupled with declining freshwater resources has compelled governments of several countries to implement stricter water treatment regulations, which, in turn, are driving the consumption of flocculant and coagulants around the world. main types of flocculants considered in the report are anionic, cationic, non-ionic, and amphoteric flocculant. However, the coagulant segment has…

Usage of Advanced Composites is becoming Crucial in the Aerospace & Defense and Wind Energy Industries

The advanced composites market is projected to grow from an estimated USD 22.91 Billion in 2017 to USD 38.41 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 10.89% between 2017 and 2022. The growth of the advanced composites market can be attributed to increased use of advanced composites in the aerospace & defense, sporting goods, and transportation industries, as these offer a high strength-to-weight ratio and increased heat resistance.
The use of advanced composites in the aerospace & defense applications has gained momentum during the past few decades. Up to 53% of the latest Airbus aircraft, A350XWB is made using advanced composite materials as compared to old aircraft models, which used only 2%–5% advanced composites. The main reasons for the growing use of advanced composites in aircraft are the reduction in the weight of aircraft and high resistance offered to corrosion.
Among fiber types, the carbon f…
