  • By technology, waterborne coatings will lead in both growth and size, with a 2023 value estimated at $42.4 billion and a CAGR through the period of 5.2%. Solvent-borne coatings will see a CAGR of 4.5% and an estimated 2023 value of $16.6 billion.

“The global market for acrylic coatings is expected to grow due to high demand from a broad range of end-use industries across the globe,” the report notes. “Rising urbanization and infrastructure developments in developing nations are major factors driving the growth of the acrylic coatings market. Also, stringent regulations regarding reduction of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) would impact the demand for acrylic coatings.”

Fluctuating Raw Materials Prices May Hamper Growth

Fluctuating raw materials prices could hamper growth in the market, the report adds. The coatings industry is raw-material intensive, with raw materials accounting for nearly two-thirds of total coatings manufacture cost. Titanium dioxide is an important pigment used by the industry, zinc is employed in the production of coatings and crude oil derivatives are a major component of most coatings. The price of titanium dioxide in particular has risen since 2010, and major companies such as AkzoNobel have had to raise prices of their coatings due to ongoing increases in the rise of raw materials.
