The role of a coating additive starts right from the formulation of the coating. It plays a very important role in the entire value chain of the coating, which involves a group of interdependent activities performed by various industries. This consists of raw material suppliers, coating additive manufacturers, formulators, and end-user applications, with logistics and supply chain management linking all of them into one group. The feedstock suppliers are the companies which supply raw materials such as urethanes, fluoropolymers, acrylates, or silicones.
The European coating additives market is witnessing growth on the account of increasing applications. They are widely being used in coating application in the construction, automobiles, and wood & furniture industries. The typical uses of these additives are to improve wettability, dispersing of solids, foam reduction, gloss control, anti-catering, anti-chipping, flow control, and UV protection, etc. of the coating material. The specific application of coatings may require the protection of coated substrate from chemicals, high temperature, abrasion, impact, moisture, biocides, etc. during the service life of the material.
The main drivers for the growth of coating additives market are the growing building & construction and automotive industries. There is a huge demand for coating additives from the building & construction industry due to an increase in the demand for better and superior quality surfaces. Residential and commercial buildings are the leading end-users for coating additives and are likely to gain higher market share in the near future owing to the increased construction activities.
Market Dynamics of the European Coating Additives Market:
- rapid economic growth, as well as rise in immigrant population in European countries in the recent years, resulted in rampant architectural constructions and industrial activities, which created significant demand for paints and additives that, in turn, increased the demand for paint additives. As the paint and coatings industry continues to fall under pressure from environmental regulations, manufacturers of coatings and paints are endlessly reformulating their products. As a result, the demand for novel additives continues to increase, and the growing shift toward water-based paint systems are fueling demand for paint and coating additives, providing tremendous growth potential for additives suppliers.
The environmental regulations associated with the harmful effects of VOCs are expected to be a major constraint for the coatings additive market. The market is also retarded due to the presence of lower quality substitute of these additives.
