Resins are often derived from plants. Polymer is an all-encompassing term for a type of large repeating molecule. Technically resins are polymers, but usually the word polymer is used to refer to plastics that are composed of molecules that are usually larger than resins.

Resin is a type of polymer. It is a condensation polymer,i.e. polymer obtained by addition of two or more different types of monomeric units having min 2 functional units which release a small molecule like water. Eg:urea-formaldehyde resin, phenol-formaldehyde resin.
