Thiokols are anticipated to remain highly sought-after in terms of product backed by the growing adoption within building and construction and automotive & transportation industries. Thiokol’s unique sulfur structure makes it useful as a sealant in construction and civil engineering projects, and in cutting edge construction technologies like high-rise building construction.

Driven by the growing demand for construction utilizations due to rapid urbanization, sales of thiokol polysulfide resins will increase coming years. Extensive use of thiokol as double glazing window sealants in building joints and curtain wall joints will boost sales opportunities in the market.

As per FMI, development of infrastructure in emerging economies such as China, India, and Japan will increase the adoption of polysulfide resins, accelerating growth in the market.

The outbreak of COVID-19 dampened the sales of polysulfide resins due to the suspension of production activities in end-use industries and disruptions in supply-chains. However, key players are evaluating agile and better automation solutions in the supply chain, which can supply the products without disruption. This is expected to help the market overcome the pandemic induced slowdown in the coming years.
