Green Coatings Market Outlook - 2021–2030

The global green coatings market size was valued at $67.3 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $104.0 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 4.3% from 2021 to 2030.

Green coatings are environmentally friendly coatings that emit nearly no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) during production. Water-based paints, high-solid paints, powder coatings, and radiation-hardened coatings are some of the most common options of green coatings. Natural ingredients, such as vegetable oil, soybean, castor oil, milk, and clay are used to make these coatings. They help to reduce the harmful effects of infrared and ultraviolet (UV) radiations while also increasing the equipment's overall efficiency. As a result, they have a wide range of uses in industries, such as construction, automotive, oil and gas, mining, aviation, aerospace, and marine. 

One of the primary reasons contributing to the market's favorable outlook is significant growth in the construction industry globally. Green coatings are used as protective and decorative paints on walls, roofs, panels, windows, door frames, and interior extrusions. They are also used on various consumer products, such as oven components, dryer drums, rooftop heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) units, electronic boxes, furniture, and fixtures.  Furthermore, rise in environmental awareness among the general public and surge in demand for waterborne and powder-based coatings propel the market forward. In comparison to the traditionally used solvent-borne coatings, these variants are VOC-free, block resistant, and not harmful for human health. In addition, various product innovations, such as development of radiation curable coatings, act as other growth-inducing factors. They are manufactured using plant-based sources and are processed under low energy electrons (EB) or ultraviolet (UV) radiations. Other factors, including rapid industrialization, along with the implementation of favorable government policies to promote sustainability, are anticipated to drive the green coatings market growth.

The green coatings market is segmented into type, application, and region. By type, the market is segregated into waterborne coatings, powder coatings, high-solids coatings, and radiation cure coatings. On the basis of application, it is fragmented into architectural coatings, industrial coatings, automotive coatings, wood coatings, packaging coatings, and other. Region-wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Green Coatings Market 

  • The outbreak of COVID-19 led to partial or complete shutdown of production facilities that do not come under essential goods, owing to prolonged lockdown in major countries, such as the U.S., China, Japan, India, and Germany. It led to either closure or suspension of their production activities in most of the industrial units globally. 
  • Construction & infrastructure was one of the most affected sectors, owing to lockdown announced in several countries. Lockdown has affected several construction and infrastructure projects due to supply chain disruptions and unavailability of workers.
  • Since the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, the architectural coatings, industrial coatings, automotive coatings, wood coatings, and packaging coatings sectors witnessed a severe decline. As a result, demand for green coatings in the construction sector decreased, thereby affecting the market growth.

Analyst Review

The green coatings market moves toward growth stabilization phase in its industry life cycle. Coating refers to the process of covering an entity's surface with a material, which does not release any product that is harmful to the environment or to any human being. A green coating does not release any product that is harmful to the environment or to any individual. The demand for green coating has surged in the previous decade due to the existence of ultra-low or zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Moreover, being an environment-conscious product, green coatings intrigue the customer's interest in the market, which is increasing continuously, with rise in awareness from consumers about the health risk from the exposure of VOCs, which fuels the demand for the green coatings in the global market.
