Decorative Coating Additives Market Drivers

Increasing demand for water-based paints & coatings from the construction industry

The rising demand from the building industry for water-based coatings serves as an incentive to expand the market for decorative coating additives. In the expected timeline, water-based coatings are anticipated to dominate the market. Environmental regulations have led to a drastic transition, especially in North America and Europe, from solvent-based to water-based materials for architectural and industrial applications. Water-based coatings do not contain cleaning solvents that reduce toxic waste generation and eliminate VOC pollution during use, making them less harmful to humans and animals. As a result, its growing adoption is expected to generate opportunities for business growth over the forecast period in the global market for decorative coating additives.

Growth in the residential and the construction industry will drive the market

The residential construction industry with escalating renovation and new infrastructural projects are expected to enlarge the decorative coating additives business. Europe has experiencing strong growth in the construction industry after APAC. This has stimulated the product demand for decorative coating additives across the region. The significant rise in remodeling and renovation projects across the residential sector has driven the decorative coating additives market.

Decorative Coating Additives Market Challenges

Strengthening regulations on solvent-based paints & coatings limits on the use of additives

The use of additives is forbidden by the strict regulations of various governments and organizations on the adoption of solvent-based coatings containing volatile organic compounds (VOCs). For both manufacturers and users of coatings, these regulations are being formulated. For example, the U.S. In compliance with the National Volatile Organic Compound Emission Requirements for Industrial and Consumer Goods, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established regulations for the use of VOCs. Increasing health awareness and inexorable VOC material policies in different regions have forced producers to reduce the quantity of VOCs in paints and coatings. Moreover, numerous sustainability initiatives have led to a high degree of transition into greener buildings. This will also restrict the use of products dependent on solvents, which will reduce the increase in consumer demand.

Fluctuating prices

However, economic allocation holds the main drawback of being highly dependent on market shifts in time and by region. The price reliance applies to the material’s local supply. Low prices and low economic allocation coefficients are indicated by high supply. Under certain conditions, from an environmental point of view, the more intensive use of supplementary cement materials is interesting. If they are locally unavailable and need to be imported, due to the rise in price, their advantage easily declines by economic allocation.
