In May 2019, manufacturer of specialty polymers for mold making and casting applications, Polytek® Development Corp. announced its acquisition of Environmental Technology, Inc Segmentation Analysis:

MRFR’s segmental analysis of the global in-mold coating provides a comprehensive market insight that allows clients better understanding of the market. The global in-mold coating market is segmented based on type, substrate, and application.

Based on the type, the Global In-Mold Coating Market is classified into water-based in-mold coating (IMC), solvent-based in-mold coating (IMC), powder coatings, and others.

Based on the substrate, the global in-mold coating market is divided into sheet molding compound (SMC), bulk molding compound (BMC), thermoplastics, and others.

Based on the application, in-mold coatings market is segmented into automotive and transport, building and construction, electronics, furniture and sanitary, medical, and others.  

In the automobile industry, in-mold coating is used for manufacturing wide range of products, like steering wheels, airbag covers, armrests, headrests, seat covers, and assist handles. In-mold coating can reduce carbon footprint, which is triggering its adoption by the automobile industry due to strict gas emission regulations passed by governments, across the world. In-mold coating is also used in automotive refinishing. Hence, the  eco-friendly aspect of in-mold coating and increase in demand for light weight automobile components are expected to bolster the market growth in the near future. The construction industry use in-mold coating in manufacturing products, like interior decorative, pavements, carpet tiles coating, and exterior elements. Alongside, in-mold coating also holds a significant place in the marine and agricultural sectors.

Volatile organic compound (VOC) emission is a certain drawback of the in-mold coating process. VOC which has serious health effects, can serve as a set-back for the market expansion in the forthcoming years. But, immense developmental possibilities offered by in-mold coating is gaining traction for investments, by the market players, in the research and developmental activities which can method out ways to reduce VOC emission. 

Regional Insights:

By region, MRFR segmented the global in-mold coating market into  North America, Latin America (LATAM), Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and the Middle East & Africa (MEA).

Emerging economies like India, China, and Japan in the Asia Pacific region are likely to experience a robust in-mold coating market growth owing to the strong influence of the automobile and construction industries. The Asia Pacific in-mold coating regional market is reckoned to a attain a 8.29% CAGR and market valuation to shoot up above USD 7,252.7 million during the forecast period of 2017-2023.
