Flourishing Building & Construction Sector in Asia Pacific Boosts Growth
First and foremost, flourishing building & construction sector in Asia Pacific is fuelling the water-based coatings market. Emerging economies such as China and India are touted to be key markets for water-based coatings. Rapid industrialization and urbanization have led to massive infrastructural development that requires paints and coatings. In addition, economic development leading to rising living standard in emerging economies have led to the construction of new residential units. These factors are anticipated to trigger the demand for water-based coatings in the building & construction sector.
Several chemical compounds used across industries are associated with volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions that have environmental implications. This has led several governments to implement strict norms that monitor VOC emissions to be in permissible limits. As such, demand for eco-friendly alternatives such as water-based coatings is expected to be on the rise. Water-based coatings are low on VOC emissions over solvent based coatings.
Climatic Limitations of Water-based Coatings Challenges Growth
However, lack of viability of water-based coatings as water is a key component of corrosion is challenging the growth of water-based coatings market. Furthermore, sensitivity of water-based coatings for temperature and humidity fluctuations during curing phase of a construction project make unsuitable for some climates. Thus, the water-based coatings market is negatively impacted.
Volatile prices of raw materials is hampering the growth of water-based coatings market. Raw materials account for major price component of paints and coatings. Thus, surge in the price of any of the raw material could significantly impact profitability.
Water-based coatings contain fewer solvents, however, varying cost of raw materials could have a significant impact on the growth of overall market.
The review presented here is based on the findings of a TMR report, titled “Water-based Coatings Market (Resin – Acrylic (Styrene Acrylic), Formaldehyde, Polyurethane, Alkyds, Epoxy, and Fluoropolymers; End User – Building and Construction, Automotive (Automotive OEM and Automotive Refinish), Furniture, Electronics, Marine, and Aerospace, Paper and Printing) – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2017 – 2024.”
- Flourishing building & construction sector in Asia Pacific stokes demand
