How is Increasing Use of Powder Coatings in Automotive Industry Creating Growth Opportunities? 

Demand for powder coatings in the automotive sector has been on the rise since the past few years. It is projected that the development and manufacturing of autonomous and electric vehicles will increase over the coming years.

Investments in the automotive industry in China provide high growth opportunities to powder coating manufacturers, as it is one of the main countries for the application of this coating.

Pure polyester powder coating is used for coating automotive engines, chassis, wheels, filters, joysticks, mirrors, wipers, horns, and other parts of vehicles.

Transparent powder coatings are being developed as a varnish for car bodies. Adoption of powder coatings in these areas have, therefore, gained traction over the past decade. Powder coatings have proven to be exceptionally durable and corrosion-free, along with the capability to impart high-quality aesthetics.

Also epoxy-polyester (hybrid) resin-based powder coating sales are expected to rise over the forecast period owing to their high application in the automotive industry.

How are Environmental Challenges Posing as Restraints to the Market Growth?

The powder coatings industry faces many environmental challenges with increasing focus on meeting state and local regulations regarding wastewater discharge. Powder coating operations have metals, oil & grease, and suspended solids in their waste streams generated during cleaning and pre-treatment phases of their operations.

It is difficult for powder coating manufacturers to meet state and local environmental regulations. Metal finishing companies that use various electroplating processes have been facing the challenges of heavy metal contamination in wastewater.

Hence, demand for eco-friendly and non-hazardous powder coatings is rising in the market, presenting lucrative opportunities for non-hazardous powder coating manufacturers.

Why Do Epoxy Resin Powder Coatings Hold Majority Share in the Market?

Powder coatings manufactured from epoxy resins are garnering increasing traction owing to enhanced protection that this type of powder coating offers against repeated mechanical stress, weather, and wear & tear associated with typical product lifecycles.

Epoxy resin-based powder coatings hold over 30% of the market share, followed by polyester resins that account for more than 1/4 of the market.

Surging preference for high-quality finish and durability of coatings in products will create remunerative growth opportunities for acrylic and resin-based powder coating. Demand for acrylic resin-based powder coatings is expected to expand at a stellar CAGR of more than 6% through 2031.

Why is the Thermoset Segment Projected to Witness Fastest Growth in Powder Coatings?

Thermoset powder coatings are derived from different resins such as epoxies, polyesters, acrylics, and polyurethanes. They require lower curing temperature as compared to thermoplastic resins. It is important to subject the powder-coated substrate to heat to allow the thermoset to flow evenly on the surface.

The most significant development in thermoset powder coatings is the capacity to engineer resin types with different properties for use in different applications. Polyesters and acrylics now find greater use in automotive and appliances industries, though epoxy resin powder coatings were traditionally used earlier.

Most thermoset powder coats provide a high level of corrosion, impact, and temperature resistance. These two industries will drive demand for thermoset powder coatings over the coming years.
