Global Waterbased Coating Market: Overview
Water-based coatings are a type of coating which use water as a solvent. 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 like glycol ethers. Rising architectural activities and stringent government regulation related to VOC content are the major drivers that drives the growth of water-based coatings market. Asia Pacific dominates the water-based coatings market in terms of demand. Countries such as China, India are expected to be the key consumers of water-based coatings. Volatility in raw material prices and susceptibility to environmental conditions is anticipated to hamper the market growth.
Acrylic water-based coatings is anticipated to be the major segment during the forecast period, however polyurethane water-based coatings is expected to grow at highest CAGR compare to other resins type. In terms of end-use, building & construction is projected to be the major segment for water-based coatings. Automotive segment is also second most lucrative segment for water-based coatings market. Increasing awareness and stringent government regulations related to VOCs content related to coatings is estimated to offer major opportunities to the water-based coatings market in the next few years.
