Key Drivers Stimulating Wood Coatings Industry Expansion

Globally Increasing Furniture Production Drives the Wood Coatings Market

Rapid urbanization in response to development and population increase has increased the demand for housing on a large scale. Consequently, the need for furniture such as chairs, tables, beds, sofas, shelves, and cupboards has skyrocketed. Furthermore, as the service sector expands, a large section of the population is migrating to new areas, fueling the development of hostels, co-living, guest houses, and official premises. This is projected to increase the demand for a variety of furniture goods.

Interior design concepts for homes, businesses, and apartments are always evolving in the furniture market. This is encouraging innovation and development, particularly in terms of design, size, and color, and is projected to increase the global production volume of furniture. Wood coatings are widely utilized in the furniture business. As a result, the rising volume of furniture manufacturers throughout the world is boosting the expansion of the market under consideration.

Preservative Applications of Wood Coatings Attracts Positive Growth

Because of its importance in preventing the wood from decay, the preservatives sector leads the market in terms of both value and volume. Interior wood applications such as cabinetry and flooring will benefit the most from preservatives.

The expansion is being fueled by a fast surge of housing constructions as well as considerable increases in maintenance and upgrade investment. An increase in home repair is expected to enhance demand for preservatives and promote market development.

Key Challenges to Wood Coatings Industry Expansion

Stringent Environmental Restrictions Act as a Prominent Restraining Factor

Stringent environmental restrictions established by the government and other regulatory organizations on the use of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the manufacturing of wood coatings impede the market's growth.

Usage of VOCs in the manufacture of wood coatings has a negative influence on the environment. Furthermore, unpredictable raw material prices impede the expansion of the wood coatings industry.

On the other hand, the wood will face intense competition from several nonwooden alternatives, such as plastic, wood-plastic composites, and fiber cement.

Which Product Type is Most Preferred in the Wood Coatings Market?

Solvent-Borne Wood Coatings are Likely to Gain Highest Traction

According to Fact.MR, solvent-borne wood coating material contributes over 66% share of the global revenue collection. The demand for solvent-borne wood coatings is forecast to expand at an annual rate of 6.4% over the assessment period. Aside from being derived from crude oil, the low price of conventional solvent-borne wood coatings is owing to the simple availability of hydrocarbon solvent basis.

Solvent-borne coatings consistently produce a high gloss finish. As a result, rising demand for factory-finished goods is expected to drive up demand for solvent-borne wood coatings. The advantages of water-borne coatings, as well as tight environmental requirements for VOC emissions, are likely to boost demand even higher.

By Type, which Wooden Coating is expected to Dominate?

Stain wood Coatings Finishes are becoming the Favorites of DIY Enthusiasts

Modern indoor and outdoor furniture has a snowballing array of functions that require different kinds of coatings. Significant properties of resins such as Superior resistance to dirt, abrasion, and water are adding value to the wooden coating market. Furthermore, exceptional chemical resistance to stains and blemishes on the wooden furniture increases the sales revenues of stain wood coatings across the globe.

There is an upsurge in demand for modern as well as traditional furniture all over the world and the demand for furniture is directly proportional to the demand for wood coating resins.
