Report - Global Forecast till 2025
Bisphenol A Market- Scenario
According to the MRFR analysis, the Global Bisphenol A Market is expected to register a
CAGR of ~5.16%. The global market in 2018 was valued at ~USD 18.1 billion.
Bisphenol A commonly known as BPA is a widely used chemical to produce polycarbonate
plastics and epoxy resin. Due to high strength and high thermal stability, BPA-based products are
useful in indoor applications and consumer products. For instance, polycarbonate plastics are
widely used in plastic containers, tableware, toys, medical devices, and electronic equipment.
The market growth is mainly attributed due to the rising demand for sustainable and energy-
efficient materials in the automotive, electronics, and other end-use industries.
The steady demand for bisphenol A is witnessed across Asia-Pacific in the expanding electronics
and automotive industries.
Industrially, the compound is synthesized by the condensation reaction in between phenol and
propanone(acetone) in the presence of HCl (catalyst) and methyl mercaptan (promotor).
