Bulk molding compound (BMC) is a ready-to-mold, glass-fiber reinforced thermoset polymer material used in compression molding, along with injection molding and transfer molding. BMC is manufactured by mixing unsaturated thermoset resin-like polyester resin, vinyl ester resin, or epoxy resin together with strands of chopped glass fibers, styrene, an initiator, and a filler in a mixer. The mixing for the preparation of BMC is done at room temperatures and stored at low temperatures to slow down curing before molding.

 

The demand for lightweight materials with high tensile strength is rising among several sectors, such as automotive, aerospace, and construction. The use of lightweight materials directly impacts the overall dynamics and structure of components in which they are used. BMC is one such compound material, manufactured with the help of thermosetting polymeric matrices. The material used in bulk molding composites possesses several properties such as good mouldability, high dimensional stability, excellent mechanical and electrical properties, and resistance from chemical and corrosion. Also, it is lightweight and quite economical, which makes it an ideal component to be used across several applications. The demand for BMC has considerably increased across the automotive and aerospace industries owing to rising advancements and innovations in these industries.

Weight and strength are two important factor that determine the strength of a vehicle. A slight reduction in the weight improves the performance of a vehicle. Composites have become a core strategic material for automotive OEMs and aerospace components. Thus, increasing use of BMC in the automotive and aerospace industries offers a great scope for the growth of the bulk molding compound (BMC) market across the world. Also, the BMC composites are gaining traction in several electrical & electronics applications owing to their properties such as resistance toward heat and corrosion, dimensional stability, and others. Therefore, with growing demand for lightweight, high strength and fire resistance materials in various end-use industries, the market for BMC is expected to rise.

The COVID-19 outbreak was first reported in Wuhan (China) in December 2019, and since then, it has spread at a fast pace across the world. Many governments have imposed lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdown measures to prevent the spread of infection. These norms restrict supplies of consumer goods, floriculture and horticulture products. Various companies have already announced possible delays in product deliveries and slump in future sales of their products. In addition to this, the global travel bans imposed by countries in Europe, Asia, and North America are affecting the business collaborations and partnerships opportunities. All these factors are anticipated to affect the industries in a negative manner and thus act as restraining factor for the growth of various markets related to this industry in the coming months.
