Rising Demand for Automotive Fuels Growth in Asia Pacific 

Geographically, the global water-based coatings market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East, and Rest of the World. It is projected that Asia Pacific will hold the highest share of the market in the future. One of the major drivers for growth in this region is the flourishing real estate sector. Developing economies like India and China are witnessing increase in their average per capita income, thus escalating demands for residential complexes. At the same time, automotive sector is considered to bolster demand for water-based coatings. With rise in purchase of automotive, the consumption of water-based coatings is also projected to shoot up.

On the other hand, North America and Europe will continue to emerge as important in the global water-based coatings market. Renovation of old buildings and consumption of automobiles are believed to maintain the momentum for water-based coating

Rise in Construction Applications Spurs Growth in Water-based Coatings

Water-based coatings are characterized by the presence of water as the liquefying agent to dissolve resins, binders, and any additives. A key driver for the growth in demand is the wide-range of demand for coating for various applications notably in construction and architectural ones. Over the years, in some end-use segments, water-based coatings have gained preference over solvent-based coatings due to the fact that they typically low volatile organic compounds. Thus, the water-based coatings market has seen a rapidly growing demand in household paints and coatings that are applied in closed spaces. Although they are considered more environmentally friendly, paint companies still need to comply with regional regulations to make them safe for commercial applications. Growing demand for heavy-duty protective coating is a key trend boosting the demand for water-based coatings. Key regional market such as the U.S. have been evolving on the back of changing regulatory frameworks on VOC emissions from the paints and coatings industries. The presence of low solvents make water-based formulations attractive approach in complying with these regulations, and also stay ahead of their competitors.
