Powder coatings are based on polymer resin systems, combined with curatives, pigments, leveling agents, flow modifiers, and other additives. These ingredients are melt mixed, cooled, and ground into a uniform powder, similar to baking flour. The powder offers benefits, such as superior durability, scratch resistance, gloss retention, and resistance to chalking. The powder is mainly used for applications on metal parts that are exposed to extreme weather conditions. Powder coatings are cost-efficient as they do not contain solvents and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). In addition, over-sprayed powder coating can be retrieved and recycled for use, thereby reducing the cost.
Major factors that are driving the market’s growth are the increasing usage of powder coatings in the automotive industry, across applications, such as door handles, rims, and under-the-hood components; and growing demand for consumer goods in Asia-Pacific, including washing machines, freezer cabinets, and microwave ovens. On the flipside, shortage of raw materials has resulted in higher prices and reduced profitability for manufacturers, thereby hindering the market’s growth.
The market has been segmented on the basis of resin type, technology, and end-user industry. By resin type, the market has been further segmented into thermosetting plastic and thermoplastic sub-segments. In 2016, the thermosetting sub-segment dominated the market with a market share of XX%, as they are widely used in decorative and functional applications, and are more heat-stable compared to thermoplastics.
By end-user industry, the market has been segmented into consumer goods, architectural, automotive, general industry, furniture, marine industry, etc. In 2017, the automotive industry is expected to dominate the powder coatings market during the forecast period, owing to factors, such as growing population, increasing disposable incomes, and rampant growth of the automotive industry
The market has also been segmented on the basis of geography into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and Middle East and Africa. In 2016, the Asia-Pacific region dominated the market with a market share of XX%, owing to consistent growth of the electronic, consumer goods, and automotive industries in China, Thailand, India, Vietnam, and South Korea.
