Global Waterborne Acrylic Coating Market:
A waterborne acrylic coating is an eco-friendly surface treatment that uses water as a solvent to disperse the acrylic resin used to make the coating. This coating has been evaluated as an alternative to solvent-based coating. Water constitutes 80% of the solvent in waterborne acrylic coating. These coatings are easy to apply and is also an eco-friendly product. Waterborne acrylic coatings are widely used in various sub-domains of architectural sector, of which Building & Construction is the dominant end user. The other end users include, woodworking, automotive, packaging and general industry.
Globally, waterborne acrylic coating market has registered a healthy growth rate during the forecast period which is mainly driven by growing urbanization in Asia Pacific, Latin America and Eastern Europe, that resulted into increased in demand for residential, commercial, and industrial infrastructure. Increasing vehicle production in countries including China, India, Mexico, Indonesia, Japan, U.S., South Korea and Germany along with aging of vehicles. Recent trends favoring the use of environment-friendly coating has seen the growth of waterborne coating in architectural and industrial sectors, which is expected to drive the global waterborne acrylic coating market. Additionally, rise in demand among the other end-user industries such as, woodworking, packaging, general and other industries like marine, aerospace & defense etc., are expected to lead the market for global waterborne acrylic coating in the coming years. However, industrial sectors like automotive, packaging, general industry and others are employing wider range of technology to the solvent-borne coatings meet the demand for low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions which are equally preferred as waterborne coatings. With this option, the industrial sector may favor the continuing use of solvent-borne coatings in these end user industries which is expected to hinder the global waterborne acrylic coating market to some extent.
