Market Dynamics:


Rise in construction activities

The rise in construction activities plays a crucial role in driving the industrial coatings market. As construction projects increase, there is a greater demand for protective coatings and functional coatings to enhance the durability, longevity and aesthetics of various surfaces, such as buildings, infrastructure and equipment. Industrial coatings offer benefits like corrosion resistance, fire protection, chemical resistance and weatherproofing, which are essential for maintaining the structural integrity and appearance of construction directly leads to higher demand for industrial coatings, boosting the market’s expansion.


Availability of alternatives in coating products

The availability of alternatives for coatings can act as a major restraint for the industrial coatings market by creating competition and potentially reducing the demand for traditional industrial coatings. If industries have access to more cost-effective or environmentally friendly alternatives, they might opt for those solutions instead, impacting the market share of traditional coatings. This can lead to the need for innovation and differentiation within the industrial coatings sector to maintain competitiveness. Thus, the availability of alternatives in coating products is considered to hinder the market growth.


Rising demand from the automotive industry

The rising demand from the automotive industry presents a significant opportunity for the industrial coatings market. As the automotive sector continues to grow, there is an increasing need for coatings that provide protection, aesthetics and functionality to various components. These coatings can enhance the durability, corrosion resistance and appearance of automotive parts, contributing to longer-lasting vehicles and improved customer satisfaction. This demand fuels innovation in coating technologies, creating multiple opportunities for manufacturers to develop advanced industrial coating materials.


Limitations on application

There are restrictions on the sorts of surfaces and curing techniques that certain coatings may be applied on. Identifying materials for specific substrates might lead to compatibility problems, impeding market expansion. Industrial coatings frequently experience cracking throughout the drying and curing processes, distorting the shape and producing uneven surfaces. During the projected period, these variables influence the market for industrial coatings. Considering such limitations on application, the factor is observed to pose a challenge for the market.

Recent Developments:

  • In May 2023, in a new joint venture with Entrotech, Inc., a supplier of technology-driven film solutions, PPG stated that it would offer clear film paint and solutions to industrial and automotive clients. PPG still owns the bulk of the joint venture. Financial and ownership details were kept under wraps. Multilayer applications known as "paint films" have at least one layer consisting of paint. They provide a variety of environmental advantages, such as reduced energy use, as well as fresh aesthetic choices. The technology has potential applications in various industrial end-uses and is already employed for automotive applications.
  • In March 2023, an effective polyacrylate-based leveling agent is being added to the TEGO Flow series by Evonik's business unit of Coating Additives. Clear coats in particular are suited for solventborne coatings when using TEGO Flow 380. Excellent anti-popping qualities and outstanding compatibility define it. Coatings for broad industrial use and automobiles are the primary uses. Based on an exclusive polymer technology, TEGO Flow 380 offers 100% active matter content.
