Coating additives are specifically engineered chemicals, resins, or metal derivatives, which help in improving the performance of coatings. Fluoropolymers-based coating additives are used in formulation of powder and paint coatings in order to give protection of substrate from high temperature, chemical reaction, and corrosion. They are generally used in industrial applications where the substrates are exposed to harsher environments. The favorable characteristics of fluoropolymer additives make it a preferred solution for applications that require high resistance to solvents, acids & bases, and most importantly, an ability to significantly reduce friction.
Key Players analyzed in this report for the global fluoropolymer coating additives market include BASF SE, Arkema S.A., Evonik Industries, Byk-Chemie GmbH, Cabot Corporation, Dow Chemical, and Ashland Inc.
In comparison to other coating additives, fluoropolymer-based additives are costlier. Hence, they are used in limited quantities and specialized purposes. Resistance at high temperatures, corrosion, and chemical inertness are major characteristics of these materials. Under the fluoropolymers category, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), and fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) are commonly used. According to the report, the demand for these additives is expected to be driven by the applications requiring high temperature resistance, chemical inertness, toughness, and water repellant function.
The key regions participating in the global market covered in this report include Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and the Middle East & Africa. According to the report, Asia-Pacific holds the largest share in the global market and is projected to continue its dominance in the coming years. The report covers major applications of the global fluoropolymer coating additives market such as industrial applications, bedding & furniture, construction, and automotive paints, among others.
The Asia-Pacific Acrylic Resin Coating Additives market is witnessing a high growth due to the emerging market for additives in energy applications. The report estimates the size of the Coating Additives market both in terms of volume and value.
