Market Overview

Metal coatings are used in various ends use industries such as construction, automotive, marine, and electrical & electronics on account of their corrosion and weather resistance properties. They are applied on the surface of the metal to protect the metal surface from oxidation, rust & corrosion, and prevent chipping and scratching.  These coatings are made of different resins such as polyester, acrylic, epoxy, polyurethane, and alkyds among others. Polyester resins are being increasingly used in construction industry owing to good weather resistance and gloss retention.

The global metal coatings market growth is driven by the expanding construction industry in both developed and developing regions and increasing spending on the residential properties coupled with improving the living standard and rising disposable income of the consumer in the developing nations.

Reviving automotive industry in the developed regions coupled with growing demand for fuel-efficient vehicles as a result of strict environmental regulations is uplifting the market growth. Additionally, shifting manufacturing base from the developed nations to developing nations owing to easy availability of raw material and cheap labor is fuelling the product demand in the automotive industry.

Furthermore, emerging electrical and electronics industry and the initiatives taken by the government such as internet of things (IoT) and automation are likely to provide lucrative opportunities to the global metal coatings market. Rising preference of the consumers for built-in functions in the personal devices is expected to add fuel to the market substantially over the forecast period.

Some of the trends noticed among the key players in the metal coatings market includes new product launch and acquisitions. In 2017, BASF SE, the largest chemical producer in the world, introduced new light stabilizers for wood and metal coatings under the brand name Tinuvin. This product would help the company to formulate durable coatings for exterior use.
