Country Wise Analysis

What makes Asia Growth Driver for Coating Binders Consumption? 

According to the latest report published by UN, by 2030 around 60% of the total population is projected to live in urban areas totalling 4.9 Billion. This is an increase of 13% from the year 1999. Also, around 60% of total increase in urban population will occur in Asia towards which China and India will be a major contributor.

This surge in growth of urban population will boost the demand for housing activities which is poised to drive the paints and coatings market in the region. Moreover, since coating binders is an essential material for ensuring adhesion and providing glossing effect to the exterior and interior of the walls, increase in housing activities will have direct impact on consumption growth of binders.

What Makes Europe Region of Prominence for Coating Binders Sales?

Europe’s market has evolved great deal. Consumers now prefer buying paints which have minimal environmental effect. Moreover, consumers in Europe now prefer paints which not only comes equipped with adhesion properties but also looks aesthetic. This has led to rise in consumption volume of waterborne coatings in the region.

Additionally, Europe’s coating binder demand is mainly driven by its increased usage in buildings, accounting for around 60% of total regional consumption. Further EU is spending considerably on infrastructure development such as construction of houses. For instance German government has constructed around 1.5 million housing units in 2021 has giving  major push to the European coating binder segment
