Polyurethane Coatings Market – Market Overview
Polyurethane is traditionally produced by reacting poly isocyanate with a polyol which are broadly used in applications such as furniture, packaging, electronic appliances, coatings and footwear. The Polyurethane Coating properties can be adjusted by polyols and crosslinkers. They possess properties such as low temperature curing, high abrasion resistance, high flexibility and durability. Paints and coatings industry has witnessed high demand of Polyurethane Coatings owing to its superior properties and increasing applications scope. Rising demand of surface coating in storage tanks, gas pipeline, ships and containers, floor and bridges among others are expected to drive the Polyurethane Coatings Market.
Polyurethane Coatings are highly recommended for surface applications which are exposed to wear and tear. It also offers high corrosion and heat resistance along with inertness to chemicals which is suitable for applications in steel tanks, paper mills, processing equipment’s, oil field machineries and interior and exterior of heavy duty vehicles. Furniture and automotive industry is likely to set as emerging market for Polyurethane Coatings over the forecast period. Increasing demand of polyurethane resins in wood coatings and construction are expected to augment the market growth. Moreover, Polyurethane Coatings provide smooth, glossy finish to the surface which is essential in automotive industry. Apart from aforementioned applications, technology driven water borne, and solvent borne are providing lucrative opportunity for Polyurethane Coatings Market. Solvent borne consist of high VOC content compared to water borne Polyurethane Coatings. Hence, stringent regulations by environmental bodies to lower the VOC emission is anticipated to drive the waterborne based Polyurethane Coatings in coming years.
Additionally, increase in spending on leisure boats and cars coupled with changing standard of living is anticipated to drive the Polyurethane Coatings in marine and automotive industry. Growing construction activities along with supportive government regulation like 100% FDI policy is also anticipated to drive the product demand in coming years. However, volatile in raw material prices leading to high Polyurethane Coatings price compared to other coating would hamper the market growth.
