Paints and Coatings Market

The global paints and coatings market was valued at US$ 144.99 Bn in 2017, according to Global Paints and Coatings Market Report, by Technology (Waterborne, Solvent borne, High Solids Coatings/Radiation-Curable Coatings, and Powder Coatings), Resin Type (Acrylic, Alkyd, Epoxy, Polyester, and Polyurethane), by Application (Decorative Paints, Transportation (incl. Automotive OEM) and Metal industrial Coatings), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East, and Africa) published by Coherent Market Insights.

The global paints and coatings market is projected to reach US$ 237.57 Bn by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.64% during the forecast period. Paints and coatings are liquid or semisolids materials that are applied or sprayed to a substrate in the form of a thin layer that forms a solid film over time. They are used to decorate, protect, and color buildings, walls, objects, and equipment. They are a mixture of polymer particles known as binder, wide variety of surfactants, pigments, solvents, and processing aids. Increasing use of waterborne paints in various end-use industries such as automotive, furniture, and architecture is expected to boost growth of the market during the forecast period. Solvent-free content of these coatings results in negligible or low volatile organic compounds (VOC) emission, which in turn makes these products environment-friendly, thereby fueling demand for these coatings.
