There is increased market demand and regulatory push for bio-based, sustainable paints and coatings,  with many producers introducing bio-based alternatives in product formulations, replacing fossil-based compounds. 

Paints and coatings manufacturers are investing in bio-based solutions, as producers and their end consumers become increasingly aware of the safety and environmental impact of the raw materials they use. Growing pressure to comply with stringent health and safety legislation and demonstrate a reduced environmental impact is forcing manufacturers to progressively introduce bio-derived alternatives to traditional chemicals. Due to regulatory demands, the paints and coatings industry is reducing its reliance on solvents based on volatile organic compounds, and turning to bio and water-based alternatives.

All ten of the top ten coatings companies by global sales now offer eco-friendly products with low-VOC emissions, and the reduction or replacement of traditional solvents, resins and pigments is now a high priority.

Report contents include:

  • Market drivers and trends. 
  • Analysis of fully or partly bio-based paints and coatings. 
  • Government policy & regulations
  • Global consumption of biobased paints and coatings to 2033. 
  • Market outlook to 2033. 
  • Competitive landscape.
  • 130 company profiles. Companies profiled include Alberdingk Boley, allnex, Covestro, Holmen Iggesund, IUV Srl, Nabaco Inc.,  NXTLEVVEL Biochem, Orineo, PolyFerm, PPG, Stora Enso and many more. 

This product will be delivered within 1-3 business days.
