The global architectural coating market was valued at $63.3 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $107.9 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.6% from 2021 to 2030.
Architectural coatings, also referred to as decorative coatings, are coating formulations used to coat buildings and homes. The term architectural coatings cover a wide range of different coatings such as varnishes, paints, primers, sealers, inks, ceramics, and several others. As they are applied on interior & exterior walls, floor, and ceilings of buildings, architectural coatings should be resistant to certain factors such as moisture, heat, changing weather, chemicals, and similar others.
The global architectural coatings market is driven by the construction boom, especially in the emerging economies of Asia-Pacific. In addition, change in consumer preferences and growth in awareness among people regarding the safety &VOC emissions from architectural coatings also drive the market. Apart from that, the shift from solvent borne to water borne coating formulations is anticipated to contribute to the growth of global architectural coatings market during the forecast period. However, stringent government regulations against the harmful VOCs emitted by certain architectural coatings may hinder the growth of market. The adoption of green coatings being developed is expected to create several growth opportunities for the market. These coatings comply with the norms of regulatory bodies regarding the safety and VOC emissions. During the COVID 19 pandemic, the architectural coatings industry was impacted by lack of subcontractors &raw materials, supply chain disruptions, partial or suspended production, and travel restrictions, all of which affect demand from the architectural, automotive, and aerospace sectors. On the other hand, increased demand from construction and general industrial sector is expected to drive demand for architectural coatings post COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, expansion in application areas of nanocoating creates opportunities for growth.

By Key Market Players
The architectural coatings market dominates the overall coatings market and the demand is expected to increase in the future. Rise in the construction activities in Asia-Pacific drives the global architectural coatings market. Asia-Pacific has witnessed rapid growth of the construction industry in the last decade owing to increased attention toward repair and maintenance of infrastructure and historical buildings & monuments. Construction of new buildings as well as renovation of existing ones is expected to fuel the demand for architectural coatings during the forecast period.
The presence of toxic chemicals in coatings is expected to hinder the market growth during the forecast period. VOCs or volatile organic compounds, present in architectural coatings are generally considered harmful for the environment and are capable of causing several respiratory problems in humans. Stringent regulations exist on the use of toxic chemicals in paints and coatings such as glycols, ethanol, ammonia, acetone, biocides, formaldehyde, and several others. As per some studies, alkyd coatings are expected to contain more than 100 different VOCs. The emission of VOCs occurs mainly after the paint or coating has dried. An alternative to this is the use of powder coatings or green coatings that have been recently introduced and are being developed for use. Regulatory bodies such as EPA and REACH support the use of green coatings as a part of the green building construction activities and smart housing solutions.
