Market Dynamics Outlook

“Rapid Expansion of Construction Industry to Lift the Market”

Over the years, the construction industry has grown at a significant pace in developed as well as developing countries across the globe. The building and construction industry is projected to grow at a significant pace due to the growing population and urbanization. Urbanization and changing lifestyles are considered the prime factors for the growth of the construction industry.

  • Many countries are spending over 5% of their gross domestic products on infrastructure and the construction sector. This is likely to create a positive environment for the growth of the paints & coatings market.
  • Paints and coatings are widely used for the decoration and protection of buildings. The paints and coatings market was valued at over US$ 160 billion in 2022 and is expected to move further at over 5.0% CAGR.

The paints and coatings industry is witnessing the trend of using low-VOC and environmentally friendly technologies such as water-based coatings, and powder coatings. This shift is observed due to strict regulations on the use of VOC emissions in North America and Europe. Awareness about VOC emission is increasing in Asia Pacific as well. This will boost the demand for low-VOC coatings during the forecast period.

“Environmental Regulation to Hamper Resin Solvents Market”

The use of solvents has adverse effects on the environment and human health, which has led to stringent regulations on the use of certain types of solvents. This has limited the use of some solvents in the resin solvents market. Also, some solvents used in resin manufacturing are not easily available in some regions, which can limit the production capacity and availability of resins.

In addition, the constantly changing raw material prices can have an adverse impact on the growth of the resin solvents market, because of uncertain production and supply & demand gap, the prices of resin solvents vary from country to country. These factors are anticipated to have a negative impact on the growth of the resin solvents market.

Which Application is Likely to Capture the Highest Market Share?

Adhesives are likely to capture the highest share of the resin solvents market. Growing demand for adhesive resins in a number of end-use industries is likely to create high demand for resin solvents in the assessment period. Adhesive resins are widely used for packaging consumer goods, food & beverage, seafood & meats, tubes, and bottles.

In the plastic industry, resin solvent adhesives are recommended as binding agents for the enhancement of the tensile strength of respective plastic. Adhesive resins that are present in emulsion form provide the benefit of resistance to moisture and elasticity. Hence, driving the demand for the resin solvent as adhesives.

Which Type is Likely to Capture Maximum Market Share?

Polymerized resins are formed by the polymerization of monomers, resulting in higher molecular weight and more complex structure compared to non-polymerized resins.

Polymerized resins offer improved performance compared to non-polymerized resins, with higher mechanical strength, greater resistance to chemicals, and improved adhesion properties. Further, polymerized resins have lower volatility than non-polymerized resins, which makes them safer to handle and use in industrial applications. This also reduces the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted during processing and use, making them more environmentally friendly.

Also, polymerized resins can be formulated using sustainable raw materials and production processes, reducing their environmental impact and making them more attractive to customers who prioritize sustainability.
