The high performance coatings market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period. One of the major factors driving the market studied includes increasing construction activities in the United States and Asia-Pacific. Solvent-based adhesives are being phased out to reduce VOC emissions; this is expected to significantly hinder the growth of the market studied.
- Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the global market during the forecast period.
- By end-user industry, the building and construction industry is expected to witness the highest demand for high performance coating during the forecast period.
Key Market Trends
Growing Demand from Building & Construction Industry
- High performance coatings provide the following qualities, such as exceptional corrosion protection, abrasion resistance and high resistance to impact, excellent chemical and thermal resistance, extreme durability and strength, and it also contributes to the aesthetics as well.
- The global construction sector is expected to expand in real terms, by an annual average of 3.2% in the coming decade, to a nominal value of more than USD 6.0 trillion.
- The rapid increase in population, in regions of developing nations, is expected to give a rise in demand for residential construction, which, in turn, augments the usage of high performance coatings.
- The key areas of expected growth are social infrastructure, schools, hospitals, government accommodation, water, defense infrastructure, and water resources.
- In the non-residential construction, the major growth was witnessed in healthcare, commercial, and office buildings. The investment in transportation, communication, and power infrastructure has also witnessed growth in the forecast period. All these factors are expected to improve the demand for the studied market.
China to Dominate the Demand in Asia-Pacific Region
- China is expected to dominate the high performance coatings market in Asia-Pacific and is also likely to witness the fastest growing demand.
- The market is estimated to witness a healthy growth over the assessment period, due to rising construction activities, along with the high adoption rate from various end-user industries such as, industrial, and aerospace & defense sector.
- In China, the housing authorities of Hong Kong have launched various measures to push-start the construction of low-cost housing.
- Additionally, the government has rolled out massive construction plans, including making provision for the movement of 250 million people to its new megacities over the next ten years, despite efforts to rebalance its economy to a more service-oriented form. This is likely to boost the demand for high performance coatings in the country.
- China is aiming high in the aerospace business. Its focus is on both commercial aircraft, as well as fighter jets. Over the next 20 years, both the European and the American aerospace giants forecast that China would become their biggest single market, due to the demand for new aircraft by Chinese airlines, which are keen to meet the rising middle classes’ desire for air travel.
- Furthermore, countries such as India and Japan have also been contributing to the growth of the market studied. Overall, the demand for high performance coatings is expected to increase in the during the forecast period.
The high performance coatings market is partly consolidated in nature. Some of the major players of the market studied include, PPG Industries Inc., Akzo Nobel NV, Hempel Group, Daikin Industries Ltd, and Sherwin-Williams Company, among others.
