Rapid urbanization, increasing disposable incomes, and changing lifestyles have stimulated the growth of key industries in emerging economies such as China, India, Japan, South Korea, and Malaysia, generating excellent opportunities for the vendors.
Global Coating Additives Market Segmentation
Water-borne coatings are adopted extensively due to low or no VOC emissions. The production of water-borne material is relatively low as they do not require additives, hardness, or thinners. The construction/architecture sector is the highest consumption of water-borne paints. They are ideal primers due to their resistance to heat and abrasion. Solvent-borne coatings are considered less environment-friendly due to high VOC emissions. They were widely used in Europe and North America region but likely to lose their share due to government regulations.
Rheology modification, defoamer, biocides impact modification, wetting & dispersion are the major functions of additives. These functions play an essential role in the coating industry and impart improved solutions. The rheology modifier additives occupy approx. 30% of the global coating additives market share. Rheology modifiers are used in different industries such as automotive, adhesives and sealants, general industry, and coil coating to control sagging, anti-settling, high shear viscosity, and low VOCs emission.
Acrylic is the most widely used polymers in the coating industry. It is used across various applications such as architectural, special-purpose coating, and product finishes for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Fluoropolymer additives hold 23% of the market share. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 6% from 2020-2026.
The fluoropolymer additives are expected to witness rapid growth during the forecast period because they provide excellent protection against chemicals, abrasion, temperature, electrical resistance, and corrosion properties. These factors make them ideal for automotive, electronics, architecture, food, heavy equipment, pharmaceutical, cookware, oil & gas production, and aerospace.
The construction segment accounts for 32% of the global coating additives market share. The use of coating additives has increased due to increased construction projects in APAC, Europe, and North America regions. The major drivers for the increase in demand for coating additives are the increasing construction activities, renovation & restoration activities, rapid urbanization, and rise in disposable incomes.
The automotive sector in the paint and coating additives market is likely to reach over USD 1.5 billion by 2026. The ability to protect vehicles from UV oxidation, scratch, stain, rust, and weather conditions fosters the demand for coating additives in the automotive sector. The upcoming trend of increasing electric vehicles in the automotive segment is likely to drive the demand for coating additives.
APAC is the dominating market for coating additives in furniture, followed by North America. China is the leading manufacturer of furniture across the world. Canada is the fastest-growing country in North America for additives in wood and furniture, and it is the fourth-largest manufacturer of wooden furniture. Owing to increasing construction activities, the demand for smart homes is the prime reason for the growing demand for additives in wooden furniture.
The coating additives market is highly competitive. Both key and small players dominate the market. Vendors operating in the industry focus on developing innovative products to support sustainable development and expanding their product portfolio by making considerable investments in R&D.
