Immense Growth in Construction Sector Boosts Demand for Architectural Coatings
Growth in people migrating to urban areas is resulting in the development of affordable housing and infrastructure by the construction industry. This is driving the demand for various equipment and architectural coatings materials used in the construction of residential as well as commercial complexes.
China, India, and the US are likely to see a significant growth in construction in the near future, according to the report named Global Construction 2030, by expert team from Global Construction Perspectives and Oxford Economics. As per the report, India is likely to grow twice as fast as China by 2030. Meanwhile, most of the construction growth in the US is expected to tilt towards the southern states.
The demand for exterior architectural coatings to protect a building from moisture, UV radiations, and microbes is increasing. Moreover, the growing demand for a greater variety of colors, with better consistency and durability is also resulting in manufacturers providing a wide range of eco-friendly, higher quality architectural coatings. Rise in the renovation of existing construction is also driving demand for both interior and exterior architectural coatings.
Global Emission Regulations Create Huge Demand for Low and Zero VOC Architectural Coatings Products
In the last few years, governments across various countries have introduced stringent regulations on emission from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) products used in paints and architectural coatings. Increasing consumer awareness of the negative effects of VOCs is driving demand for low and zero VOC coatings and paints.
Increasing number of companies are working on projects where LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification is required. Varying degree of accepted VOC levels in LEED certification is accelerating the demand for low and zero VOC paints and coatings.
Manufacturers in architectural coatings market are focusing on maintaining balance between low VOC level and high-quality products to meet consumer demand and meet the performance gap between low VOC and traditional coating products.
Moreover, green building standards in some countries relating to indoor air quality and growing desire for low odor interior has also resulted in increased production and demand for ultra-low and zero VOC paints and architectural coatings.
Regulatory Changes Driving Shift to Water-based Coatings Remain Challenge for Coating Manufacturers
Solvent-based coatings are used widely owing to their low-cost, superior film-forming characteristics, and ease of application. However, introduction of stringent VOC and other regulations worldwide is driving shift from solvent-based to water-based architectural coatings. Manufacturers in the architectural coatings market are constantly struggling to enhance the performance of water-based coatings and minimize its cost. Manufacturers are also finding ways to maintain low Minimum Film Formation Temperature (MFFT) and at the same time ensuring hardness of the dried film in water-based coatings.
Regulations on VOC emission is also emerging as a challenge for architectural coatings manufacturers. Lack of VOC in water-based coating results in quick evaporation of water resulting in tacky paint. Hence, architectural coatings manufacturers are focusing on developing a raw material that offers longer open time for paint user. Moreover, longer dry time of water-based coatings requires additional heat and air movement.
One of the biggest challenges in the use of water-based coatings is majorly performance-related in various industries. Some of the issues include UV degradation, corrosion resistance, and adhesion to various surfaces including plastic, steel, aluminum, etc.
To improve the performance of water-based architectural coatings, manufacturers have also started providing co-solvents, which includes low concentration of solvents in water-based architectural coatings. With advancement in raw materials improving capability of water-based coatings has resulted in higher cost of per volume of water-based architectural coatings as compared to solvent-based coatings.
Application of UV Curable Resins Continue to Create Growth Opportunities
In recent years, there has been a rise in the use of radiation curing technology for buildings, interior and exterior coatings. Hence, the demand for UV curable resins in the architectural coatings has increased. Moreover, increasing environmental concerns and on-going legislation to limit emission from VOC is leading to the growing demand for UV curable fluorine-containing resins.
Efficiency, energy saving, and higher solid content are resulting in increasing use of UV curable fluorine-containing resins in various industries. Solvent UV curable coatings have emerged as non-flammable liquids, resulting in fire protection and reducing handling hazards as compared to other solvent-based coatings. This is also resulting in the wide application in building’s exterior and interior. Compared to traditional radiation curing systems, the UV resins based architectural coatings are gaining traction in automotive and construction industry.
Architectural coatings manufacturers across the globe are also upgrading their operations to develop water-based UV curable coating. Combining eco-friendly properties of water-based formulas and fast curing time by UV system, manufacturers are providing high performance and strong chemical resistance.
