Global Recyclable Thermosets Market: Overview
The global market for recyclable thermoset polymers has attracted considerable attention in the past few years and the field has significantly advanced toward the development of new classes and varieties of thermosets with recycling capabilities.
Thermosets refer to the covalently cross-linked polymers that have superior resistance to a variety of environmental, mechanical, and thermal factors even at high temperatures and have excellent dimensional stability compared to conventional thermoplastics, which are also called thermoset polymers. Thermoset polymers are linear polymers that can be recycled and reprocessed using thermal energy owing to their easily accessible melting points.
However, thermoplastics are not durable enough to be used in high performance applications, and are replaced by thermosets for applications that require materials that are indestructible or are virtually impossible to break down/melt or process using conventional thermoplastic recycling techniques. Consequently, discarding these thermosets in landfills than trying to recycle them has been the most preferred course of action of working around with thermosets. But developments in the global recyclable thermosets market are projected to bring a substantial change in this scenario.
The report on the global recyclable thermosets market presents a detailed analysis of the most prominent drivers, challenges, and trends observed in the present-day market. It also provides an overview of the past and present state of key market elements, and forecasts the market’s growth prospects from 2016 through 2024.
