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 temperature and stored at low temperature to slow down curing before molding. The concentration of the mixture varies according to the application.

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.
A few key players operating in the global bulk molding compound (BMC) market are Toray TCAC Holding B.V, Core Molding Technologies., IDI Composites International and Showa Denko. These companies are implementing new product developments, and mergers and acquisitions strategies to enlarge the customer base and gain significant market share across the world, which in turn, permits them maintain their brand name in the global market.
