Advanced chemistries with attractive finishes expand application scope of powder coatings, finds Frost & Sullivan
London /PRNewswire/ - Frost & Sullivan's recent analysis, Global Powder Coatings Market, Forecast to 2023, finds developing markets such as Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Rest-of-the-World (ROW), following the footsteps of developed markets, such as North America and Europe, are increasingly replacing liquid coatings with powder coatings. End-user markets, including automotive, construction, appliances, and industrial, are shifting to higher-performing powder coatings in these regions due to the rising purchasing power of citizens and the subsequent demand for technologically superior products. The growth of these sectors is expected to steer the $7.88 billion global market toward $10.61 billion by 2023. The analysis explores the key powder chemistries of epoxy, polyester, epoxy-polyester hybrids, acrylic, PVC, polyamide, polyolefins, and fluoropolymer. It also analyzes the growth opportunities for these chemistries in the application segments of appliances, automotive, architectural, furniture, industrial, agriculture, construction, mining equipment (ACME), and pipe in the North American, Europe, APAC, and ROW markets.

"An important driver for getting the powder coating market over the $10-billion line is technological advances," said Soundarya Gowrishankar, Visionary Science Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "Most of the innovations have been aimed at resolving the challenges in powder coating difficult surfaces like non-conductive molded parts. There has been heated R&D activity in the areas of attractive finishes, low-temperature cure coatings, as well as self-healing, self-cleaning, heat-reflective, and energy-efficient coatings."
Although there is some resistance to the adoption of powder coatings due to the competition from alternate techniques like anodizing and the price sensitivity of customers, the market will enjoy huge growth opportunities created by:
"When looking to make the most of the significant opportunities in the global market, powder coating manufacturers need to offer products with unique functionalities to stand out," noted Gowrishankar. "Although APAC and ROW will drive volume shipment, North America and Europe will continue to be the hub of R&D activity."
