Waterborne Coatings Market - Overview
Waterborne coatings are a type of coatings that use water as a solvent. These coatings offer many advantages. They are ideal primers, as they provide superior resistance to heat and abrasion. Additionally, these coatings provide excellent adhesion, and low toxicity and flammability due to low VOC levels and HAP emissions. Waterborne coatings also help in reducing air emissions. Water is employed as a dispersal agent for resins to make them eco-friendly and easy to use. Water constitutes more than 75% of the coatings with traces of other solvents such as glycol ethers.
Acrylic is anticipated to be the major segment of the global waterborne coatings market during the forecast period. However, the polyurethane segment is expected to expand at a rapid pace in the near future. Acrylic resins offer safer and easier handling, faster set-up, lower VOC emissions, and performance properties that equal or surpass the traditional solvent-borne options. Acrylic waterborne coatings are used in direct-to-metal (DTM) end-users and early block resistance for furniture and flooring. These coatings are durable and provide high-gloss finish for concrete flooring.
Growth in architectural activities and implementation of stringent government regulations related to VOC content are major factors driving the waterborne coatings market. Asia Pacific dominates the global waterborne coatings market in terms of demand. China and India are expected to be key consumers of waterborne coatings in the region. Volatility in prices of raw materials and susceptibility to environmental conditions are anticipated to hamper the global waterborne coatings market.
Waterborne coatings are widely used in building and construction activities owing to their advantages related to high gloss, esthetics, and durability. In terms of end-user, building & construction was the prominent segment of the global waterborne coatings market in 2017. It held more than 50% share in 2017. The segment is estimated to continue its dominance during the forecast period due to the rise in construction activities and increase in demand for decorative coatings, especially in emerging economies. Implementation of stringent government norms related to VOC content in China and rise in awareness about the usage of waterborne coatings in the automotive segment are other factors boosting the waterborne coatings market.
Based on region, the global waterborne coatings market has been segregated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. In terms of demand, Asia Pacific was the leading region of the global waterborne coatings market in 2017. Significant rise in consumption of paints and coatings in Asia Pacific is a key factor driving the demand for waterborne coatings in the region.
