Rise in population coupled with rapid urbanization has surged the growth of the architecture & construction sector in both developed and developing economies such as the U.S., China, India, and others where paints and coatings growth where paints and coatings are used for flooring, wall finishing, and roofing applications. For instance, according to a report published by National Investment Promotion and Facilitation Agency, the infrastructure activities accounted for 13% share of the total foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows in 2021. This is expected to boost the demand for paints and coatings in the growing architecture & construction sector. Furthermore, factors such as surge in disposable income, technological upgrades, and spurring rise in original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have led the automotive sector to witness a significant growth where paints and coatings are used for corrosion protection applications in under hood parts, engine components, interior of containers, and storage vessels. For instance, according to a report published by India Brands Equity Foundation, the domestic automobile production increased by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.36% from 2016-20 with 26.36 million vehicles being manufactured in India in 2020.

However, there are certain health hazards associated with the use of volatile organic compound (VOC)-containing paints & coatings. For instance, high levels of VOC's in paint could particularly affect asthmatic and sinusitis patients. Furthermore, VOCs can cause severe irritation to the throat & eyes, and a burning sensation to the nasal membranes. These factors may refrain the customers from purchasing VOC-containing paints & coatings; thus hampering the paints and coatings industry growth.

On the contrary, the emergence of high solid paints and coatings that produces little or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) has surged the potential applications of paints and coatings among several end-use sectors. For instance, high solid epoxies are widely used in decking, hull, cargo tanks, and others. Furthermore, high solid paints and coatings require less drying and are easy to apply. These factors make high solid paints and coatings highly preferred for coating applications in various end-use sectors. This is anticipated to increase the sales of high solid paints and coatings; thus creating lucrative opportunities for the market.

Architectural segment is projected as the fastest growing segment

By application, the architectural segment was the largest revenue generator and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period. This is attributed to the fact that governments of developing economies such as China, India, and others, have increased spending on the development of townships, housing, built-up infrastructure, and construction of development projects where paints and coatings are widely used for exterior and interior coating applications. For instance, according to a report published by the National Investment Promotion and Facilitation Agency of India, the Indian Parliament passed a bill, in March 2021, to set up the National Bank for Financing Infrastructure and Development (NaBFID) to fund infrastructure projects in India.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON THE GLOBAL PAINTS AND COATINGS MARKET

  • The novel coronavirus is an incomparable global pandemic that has spread to over 180 countries and caused huge losses of lives and the economy around the globe.
  • The paints and coatings market has been negatively impacted due to the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic owing to its dependence on building & construction, automotive & transportation, industrial, aerospace, and other sectors. According to a report published by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), the sale of passenger cars and sport utility vehicles declined by 52%, and 45% respectively in March 2020.
  • Moreover, several automotive companies were either shut down or shrank their operations due to the risk of infections among the workforce. This has temporarily hampered the demand for paints and coatings market amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • In addition, the falling income of customers and international travel restrictions have led to a contraction of the demand of paints and coatings in the aerospace sector. For instance, according to a report published by Airlines for America, the commercial airline passenger volume in September 2020 was 68% less than in September 2019, affecting a long-term existential threat to manufacturers, the supply chain, and to the entire air travel industry
  • Furthermore, COVID-19 has put a temporary break on various aircraft manufacturing projects, which in turn has shrunk the demand for paints and coatings used for interior coating and flooring applications in the aerospace & aviation sectors. In addition, the paints and coatings market has witnessed a downfall in demand among the construction sectors, owing to a temporary halt on various building and construction projects amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • In 2020, paints and coatings prices were high in Asia-Pacific. The price rise was due to continued regional demand trends and tight product availability. Firm downstream demand for paints & coatings and stronger upstream costs are expected to sustain the price gain.
  • However, the rise in awareness for using eco-friendly products among citizens of both developed and developing economies may surge the popularity of paints and coatings with minimal or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emissions in various end-use sectors post COVID-19 scenario. Furthermore, the building & construction and transportation activities are have been back on track and start functioning with a full capacity post-COVID-19 period, which is expected to contribute to the paints and coatings market growth.
