What is Set to Increase Consumption of Insulation Paints and Coatings?

“Rising Energy Consumption and Growing Construction Sectors"

Insulation coatings used during construction upgrade buildings by increasing energy efficiency and reducing the operational cost of the building. Insulation on walls prevent heat gain or loss through the building, which reduces the cooling expenses of residents.

  • According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Building Technologies Office (BTO), commercial and residential buildings accounted for 40% of total energy consumption in 2022.

Main uses of electricity are space heating, space lightening, and space cooling, which can be managed with the help of insulation paints and coatings for buildings.

  • According to a recent report published by Oxford Economics, the global construction industry will grow up to US$ 4.2 trillion at the end of 2037.
  • The International Energy Agency estimates that around 30% of global energy consumption was done by operations of buildings in 2022.

As such, growing construction sector along with rising energy consumption will be favorable insulation paint and coating market trends over the next decade.

“Extensive Benefits in Electronics, Automotive, and Petrochemical Industries”

Several industries are acknowledging the features of insulation paints and coats for their benefits. Insulating coatings withstand severe environments that cause the corrosion of metal. Insulation coatings strengthen the structural integrity of pipelines and equipment used in the chemical industry.

Furthermore, insulation paints are being used on trains and cars for refrigerated transportation. These coatings are used on buses to reduce cost of energy use and to improve comfort. Additionally, the water-repellant feature of insulation paints offers stability in a humid atmosphere. As such, it is used for heat protection in shipping containers.

What are the Challenges to Insulation Paint and Coating Market Growth?

“Stringent Government Regulations Governing the Industry”

Volatile organic compounds (VOC) are emitted from paints and coatings, which are hazardous air pollutants. These can cause numerous health issues such as headaches, nervous system damage, cancer, eye irritation, nausea, and kidney damage. These compounds can also contaminate groundwater.

  • According to the Chinese Ministry of Finance, in 2016, a 4% tax was enforced on ready-to-spray VOC coatings, which exceeds the 420g/L limit.
  • Additionally, the European Union has 'Paint Directives', which aim to limit VOC content in paints.

Such government measures are detrimental to demand growth for insulation paints and coatings.
