By Resin

  • Acrylic: Acrylic resin as a binder is commonly used in industrial coatings. Based on acrylic or methacrylic polymers or copolymers, acrylic coatings surfaces are known for their inertness and color retention when exposed to outdoor elements. Acrylics are one of the fastest-growing sectors in the industrial coatings industry

  • Epoxy: Epoxy-based coatings can be applied to both indoor and outdoor surfaces. It is widely used in industrial applications as protective and insulating coatings and primers in building ships and other vessels, aircraft, spacecraft, and satellite systems. Due to their strength, they are used in the renewable energy sector to coat the steel bodies of wind turbine poles as well as to produce their blades and protect the structures of hydroelectric power stations.

  • Polyester: Coatings containing polyester resin can be classified as good quality coatings. Polyester based coatings meet most of the general-purpose requirements.

  • Polyurethane: Polyurethane coatings are used for surfaces that are subject to high levels of wear-and-tear and require excellent chemical and physical resistance. Polyurethane resins as binders offer toughness, abrasion resistance, durability, and high gloss properties to coatings.

  • Fluoropolymers: The fluoropolymer coatings are blends of high-performance resins and fluoropolymer lubricants. These coatings are superior dry film lubricants that produce a smooth, hard, and slick coating and provides excellent chemical and corrosion resistance. Some other benefits of fluoropolymer coatings include abrasion resistance, electrical resistance, non-wetting, non-stick, reduced friction, and resistance to galling.

  • Others: Other coatings include polyether ketone resins, polyaryl etherketon, alkyd and inorganic zinc, vinyl, and silicon-based resins.

By Technology

  • Water-Based: Water-based coatings contain water-soluble resins and use about 80% water and small quantities of other solvents, such as glycol ethers, alcohol, or other oxygen-containing solvents, to disperse the resins. The resins used include polyesters, polyacrylates, alkyds, epoxies, and epoxy esters. Water-based coatings have low toxicity and reduce the concentration of flammable materials in a confined area owing to low VOC levels and HAP emissions.

  • Solvent-Based: Solvent-based coatings are widely used in various industrial applications owing to their cost-efficiency, superior film-forming properties, and ease of application. Solvent-based coatings contain a high level of volatile organic compounds, which facilitates the application, drying, and formation of a durable coating film. However, these coatings tend to release VOCs into the atmosphere. Due to the strict environmental regulations, manufactures are compelled to reduce the levels of VOC in the coatings. Thus, the solvent-based coatings segment is expected to lose its share to the water-based coating market.  

  • Powder: Powder coating, a dry finishing process, uses finely ground particles of pigment and resin that are electrostatically charged and sprayed onto electrically grounded parts. Powder coatings are polymer resin systems that are a combination of pigments, curatives, flow modifiers, leveling agents, additives, and others.

  • Others: The others segment includes high solids coatings, radiation-curable coatings (e.g., UV-curable coating), and can coatings.

By End Use

  • General Industrial: The general industrial segment involves the application of industrial coatings in chemical, energy & power, textile, equipment manufacturers, and others. Industrial coatings are used to provide a protective layer and corrosion resistance and mechanical, weather as well as heat and radiation resistance, to the metals and the substrate under the coatings. Moreover, industrial coatings contribute to the durability of a product.

  • Automotive & Transportation: The demand for industrial coatings in the automotive industry is increasing as it not only offers benefits such as protection from UV damage, chemical stains, and etching but also offers ease of cleaning and enhanced gloss. The coatings act as a protective shield against common environmental contaminants such as insect acids, road salt, bird droppings, swirling, and scratches.  

  • Industrial Wood: Industrial coatings are used to enhance the aesthetic appeal and ensure surface protection of wooden surfaces such as furniture, sidings, and decking & floorings. Wood coatings are available in different categories, based on technologies such as solvent-based, water-based, high solids, and UV curing.
