Tricyclodecanedimethanol alcohol is a highly viscous and colorless substance, which has a characteristic odor. TCD alcohol DM is sparingly soluble in water, aliphatic, and aromatic hydrocarbons. Primarily, TCD alcohol DM is used in the manufacture of dimethacrylates, which are used in various UV curing applications such as adhesives, inks, electronics, and coatings.
The global TCD alcohol DM market is expected to expand from US$10.9 mn in 2014 to US$19.9 mn by 2023, progressing at a 7.0% CAGR during the period from 2015 to 2023. The increasing demand for UV-cured adhesives is predicted to drive the global TCD alcohol DM market during the forecast period. Even though proprietary technology is a primary factor restricting the growth of the global TCD alcohol DM market, research and developments in the optoelectronics segment will create new growth opportunities for the global TCD alcohol DM market in the years to come.
