Paint Packaging Market

The packaging used for the storage and transportation of paints is known as paint packaging. Paints are frequently used to protect and safeguard buildings and structures from outside forces and extreme weather. Packaging reduces product waste, boosts storage productivity, and guarantees the quality of the paint packaging products. There are variety of packaging options available. These include bags, bottles, jerrycans, metal cans, and others. Moreover, sustainable, and eco-friendly packaging options are in great demand as they have minimal environmental impact and are safe to use.

The wide usage of paint in the automotive industry boosts the demand for paint packaging products. The rise in demand for vehicles, advancements in coating solutions, and research and development increase the usage of automotive paints which eventually expanded the growth of the paint packaging market. Automotive paints enable metal and aluminum car parts to be more durable so they can withstand harsh conditions like heat, acid, UV rays, and dust particles.

The main purpose of automotive paints are protection and decoration. These coatings are applied in a series of phases to prevent corrosion on the metal. They are frequently utilized in the automotive industry to enhance the visual appeal and functionality of vehicles. The use of automotive paints is expected to expand significantly owing to rise in Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) demand.

Many manufacturers are offering their automotive paint solutions leading to the growth of the market. For instance, PPG Industries, Inc. provides a wide range of automotive paints including waterborne and solvent-borne primers, basecoats, clearcoats, powder primers, and scratch resistant ceramic clearcoats. These products are designed to perform within a vehicle's coating layers system, with each layer performing a specific function. In addition, Solvay, a leading chemical manufacturer, also offers its products for the automobile sector.

Addibond is a distinctive line of polymers developed to enhance paint adhesion and adhesive bonding. It offers several advantages when used in corrosion and sterilization treatments, and it is so effective at reducing the carbon footprint of automotive coatings that it earned the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label.

The lifespan of a vehicle can be increased by using these beneficial solutions, which improve durability, adhesion, corrosion resistance, water resistance, surface wetting, emulsion polymerization, pigment dispersion, color development, foam management, and others. Owing to these factors, the surge in automotive paint usage stimulated the growth of the paint packaging market tremendously.

The increase in construction of residential and commercial buildings, and surge in infrastructural developments drive the growth of the paint packaging market. Rapid urbanization favored the growth of construction of commercial buildings. The expansion of office spaces and increased demand for new office space and administrative buildings are both contributing to the rise in construction activities.

Any type of structures and buildings can be shielded from the impacts of water and sunlight with paint. Painting wooden structures, such as houses, is common because it stops water from penetrating the wood and causing it to degrade. In addition, the paint helps keep the wood from deteriorating in the blazing sun. To prevent rust, metal buildings and objects of various kinds are painted.

Many manufacturers offer their paint packaging solutions for the construction of residential and commercial structures. For instance, Atrak Shimi Shargh Company offers a wide range of paint metal containers, polyethylene containers (paint bucket) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) containers with different capacities. These containers are produced from the best raw material and are designed in accordance with market demands. Thus, upsurge in construction activities has paved way for expansion of the paint packaging market.

The fluctuations in the raw material prices restrain the growth of the paint packaging market. The plastic containers, cans, and bottles used for packaging paints are derived from crude oil. There are several factors for the fluctuations of crude oil prices including instability in countries that produce oil, natural disasters that might affect production. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, or OPEC, is the primary factor affecting changes in oil prices. Oil prices might fluctuate due to production expenses as well.

While it costs less to extract oil in the Middle East, it costs more to do so in Canada's oil sands. Moreover, the metals used for paint packaging are susceptible to price change. Metals require special storage conditions compared to crude oil which affects the overall pricing of metals. Thus, fluctuations in the prices of raw materials hinder the market growth.

The usage of sustainable and eco-friendly packaging solutions is a lucrative opportunity for the paint packaging market. Ecology is negatively impacted in many ways by the plastic used for paint packaging. Plastic contributes to environmental pollution of the land and water. It can harm marine life if it enters our rivers and oceans when it is incorrectly disposed. Plastic production results in the release of greenhouse gases, which contribute to global warming. Climate change poses a major threat to people and wildlife in the future as people continue to generate additional greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

There is an increase in the desire for sustainable and eco-friendly packaging options owing to rise in public awareness of the environment. Because of this, manufacturers of paint are adopting environment-friendly packaging materials like paper-based goods, recyclable and biodegradable plastics, and other biodegradable materials. For instance, in February 2022, WestRock Company constructed a new corrugated box plant in Longview, Washington, to meet the growing demand from WestRock’s regional customers in the Pacific Northwest. This expansion will increase production of sustainable paint packaging solutions leading to market growth.

Furthermore, in November 2022, Smurfit Kappa acquired Pusa Pack S.L., a bag-in-box packaging plant located in Onda, close to Castellon in the Valencian region. Pusa Pack S.L. specializes in producing flexible large-capacity bags with capacities ranging from 200 to 1500 liters that are used to store and move liquid and semi-liquid goods. This acquisition is projected to boost the growth of the paint packaging market. Thus, the sustainable, biodegradable, and eco-friendly packaging solutions are opportunistic for the paint packaging market.
