Urethane Surface Coatings Market Overview
Polyurethane surface coatings, often referred as urethane coatings, are high performance and high cost coatings known for their low temperature curing, high abrasion resistance, excellent outdoor weathering characteristic and high flexibility. Urethane surface coatings are used in wooden furniture industry, automobiles, aircrafts, industrial marcher & equipment, electrical goods & industrial structure. Despite relatively high cost of urethane coating, it has been one of the fastest growing coating sector in the global paints & coatings industry. The ultimate factor that creates a huge demand for urethane coating in high performance application is their excellent durability, pleasing optical property, resistance to abrasion & corrosion and flexibility.
The global market for urethane surface coatings is expected to expand at a mid-single digit CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the rising demand for flexible coatings from automotive & industrial sector. In the present scenario, global urethane coatings market is growing at a higher pace when compared to global coatings market.
Urethane Surface Coatings Market Dynamics
Since urethane coatings have the ability to formulate coatings with lower content of organic solvent, it’s used widely in multiple industries. Ability of urethanes surface coatings to formulate lower organic content is likely to boost the demand for urethane surface coatings in automotive & industrial sector along with others. However, urethane has experienced some decline during the global recession, especially in developed regions. This decline is followed by quick recovery within 2-3 years of recession. In the current scenario, global urethane surface coatings market is growing higher than the global coatings market.
Increasing demand for uniform exterior coating for various applications including automotive, agricultural & construction equipment, industrial machinery, marine body, wooden products among others is likely to accelerate the demand for urethane surface coatings.
In the recent years, consumer preference for coatings are shifting towards powder coating due to its uniform visual appearance and thicker surface coating, which is likely to propel the demand for urethane surface coatings.
However, risks associated with volatile raw material prices and government laws corresponding to the use of urethane surface coatings is likely to hinder the growth of the market.
