Revenue Analysis of Powder Coatings Market (2017-2021) vs. Growth Outlook (2022-2032)

According to Fact.MR’s report, powder coatings demand exhibited a CAGR of over 3.1% from 2017 to 2021, topping US$ 12.72 Bn as of 2021. Demand for powder coatings has increased over the past decade owing to rising application of powder coatings in automotive and appliances and furniture manufacturing industries.

Use of powder coatings for consumer goods, namely automobiles, refrigerators, water heaters, dishwashers, microwaves, and industrial machinery has been on the rise. Growing demand on account of increasing purchasing power of consumers in developing economies is cited as the main factor that will influence sales of powder coatings over the coming years. Also, attributable to their versatility and widespread usage, sales of powder coatings will increase over the next ten years.

Key Market Drivers Influencing Powder Coatings Industry Expansion

Recycling Property of Powder Coatings to Propel Market Growth Prospects

Application of powder coating is a two-step process in which, firstly, the product is splashed with powder with the assistance of an electrostatically charged powder gun. The powder clings to the part, and afterward, that part is restored inside a coating oven.

This coating oven liquefies the powder so that it streams together and locks to the part effectively. The relieving procedure creates a durable bond that lasts and helps protect the metal beneath. Powder coating has a 60% of average transfer efficiency.

Thus, 40% of the powder is not able to adhere to the component. The excess sprayed powder on the part can be gathered and reused utilizing a procedure called powder reclamation. Powder reclamation works better when only one or two primary colors are being used for the products, as multiple color changes boost up equipment costs considerably.

If the component is sprayed with one or two colors, it can significantly help save the powder by reclaiming the powder. The over-sprayed powder can be trapped in the filters or spray booth. The recycled powder can be used again and which makes the powder.

Increasing Demand for Environmentally Friendly Coatings to Fuel the Market Growth

The market is expanding rapidly due to a reduction in the use of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These coatings consist of no VOCs, thus reducing atmospheric pollution, safe storage and handling, and low fire hazard.

VOCs are chemicals that vaporize at room temperature and are the leading cause of ground-level air pollution. Nitrogen oxides react with VOCs to form smog and can cause nose, throat, eye irritations, headaches, memory impairment, visual disorders, and cancer in humans.

Increasing awareness regarding pollution control among manufacturers is boosting these coatings' production. Manufacturers are usually required to file for permits and follow strict environmental regulations on the amount of solvent and VOCs emitted into the atmosphere. Violation of the regulation by manufacturers regarding VOCs content has to face penalties and fines.

These coatings offer an alternative that minimizes the amount of air pollution control and complies with regulations and restrictions. In manufacturing these coatings, there is no use for petroleum solvents and therefore do not release VOCs harmful to the environment. These coatings comply with environmental regulations, which is expected to drive the market.

Key Challenges encountered by Powder Coatings Industry

Environmental Challenges and Local Regulations to Hamper the Market Growth

With an increased emphasis on maintaining state and municipal requirements regulating wastewater discharge, the powder coating sector challenges several environmental issues. Powder coating processes create waste streams including metals, oil, grease, and suspended particles during the cleaning and pre-treatment phases of their operations.

Many state and municipal environmental requirements make it difficult for powder coating producers to meet. Heavy metal pollution in wastewater has been a problem for metal finishing businesses that utilize various electroplating methods.

Difficulty in Obtaining Thin Films Using Powder Coatings to Hinder the Market Growth

Powder coating does not contain any liquid carrier. In this way, it can deliver thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings. It is moderately simple to apply thick coatings, texture-free coating, and it isn't as simple to apply smooth thin films. As the film thickness diminishes, the film turns out to be increasingly more orange stripped on surface because of the molecule size and glass transition temperature (Tg) of these coatings.

Powder coating’s particle size falls in the scope of 30 to 50 μm and a Tg > 40°C. By utilizing these coatings, film fabricates ups of more than 50 μm might be required to acquire an acceptably smooth film. Specialized tasks are there where these coatings under 30 µm or with a Tg < 40°C are utilized to produce smooth thin films. Thus, producing thin films using this coating is difficult to obtain, which is anticipated to hamper the growth of the market during the forecast period.
