Product Insights

In terms of products, the industry has been categorized into water-borne, powder-based, and solvent-borne. In 2015, the solvent-borne segment accounted for revenues of nearly USD 8.5 billion, thereby dominating the overall industry revenue. However, this segment is anticipated to observe slow growth during the forecast years owing to strict government regulations on the use of solvent-based compounds with high VOC content.

Water-borne coatings is another key segment, which is expected to experience the highest revenue growth of nearly 11% during the forecast period. Increasing demand for environmental-friendly products from key end-use verticals is slated to drive the segment growth.

End-use Insights

The industry has been segmented into construction, oil & gas, aerospace, mining, industrial, power generation, automotive, marine, and others, on the basis of end use. The construction segment dominated the overall industry, accounting for revenues of over USD 5 billion in 2015. This dominance and future growth of this segment can be attributed to rising infrastructure development activities and investments in emerging countries of Asia Pacific and Central & South America.

The growth of the aerospace and oil & gas segments is also expected to drive the demand for protective coatings during the forecast period, projected to grow at a CAGR of nearly 11%. This can be attributed to the increasing demand for the products in thermal barrier and surface protection applications, in the aforementioned industries, which witness high-temperature operations.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific accounted for a major share of the overall industry in 2015, having recorded revenues of over USD 18 billion. This regional industry segment is expected to continue its dominance in the coming years, as a result of the presence of numerous manufacturers, easy availability of raw materials, rising construction initiatives being taken by governments, and low production costs. China is expected to be among the highest growing markets for the product worldwide during the forecast period, projected to grow at a CAGR of nearly 10%.

The European region is expected to observe slow growth in the protective coatings industry, primarily owing to the political and economic instabilities in the region. The industry in Russia has been witnessing a significant boost in the construction sector, which is expected to offer high growth potential to product manufacturers in the region during the forecast period.

Competitive Insights

The protective coatings industry is highly competitive, with key manufacturers spread worldwide. The key global players in this industry include Wacker Chemie AG, BASF SE, AkzoNobel NV, The Sherwin-Williams Co., and PPG Industries. These players have adopted strategies such as capacity expansion and new product developments to gain a competitive edge over competitors in the global industry.

The aforementioned global companies are, however, faced with significant competition from Chinese manufacturers. The significant positions of these Chinese players can be attributed to the low production costs, easy availability of raw materials, and rapid growth of the end-use verticals in the region.

Based on resin segment, epoxy is anticipated to expand at the highest growth rate over the forecast period. Epoxy resin offer high flexibility and abrasion and corrosion resistance, thus, paving their way for use as protective coating in various end use industries such as automotive, construction, oil and gas, mining, power generation, marine, and others.

Water borne segment is projected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period. It is widely used in household applications and confined and poorly ventilated spaces. They have low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) content, thus, making them more eco-friendly compared to their counterparts. This coating is used where solvent-borne coatings are anticipated to react with the substrate. Waterborne coating is an ideal primer on account of its properties including excellent thermal and corrosion resistance.

Based on end user, industrial segment is projected to grow significantly over the next seven years. Industrial machinery is exposed to high temperatures, corrosive fluids, and gases that can deteriorate it. Protective coating is used for heat exchangers, boilers, transformers, containers, and material handling equipment to protect them from heat and humidity. They provide the equipment with improved impact and abrasion resistance due to their impermeability.

Further key findings from the report suggest:

• Asia Pacific was the dominant regional segment in 2018, driven by ascending demand from end users such as aerospace, automotive, mining, power generation, industrial, and oil and gas

• China is the fastest growing country in Asia Pacific on account of the growing construction industry

• Epoxy segment is potentially fueling the protective coatings market growth owing to its rising demand in various end-use industries

• Market players engage in various strategic initiatives to gain greater market share.
