Powder Coatings Market Overview

The market size for powder coatings is projected to grow from USD 12.1 billion in 2021 to USD 18.1 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period.

Powder Coating is used as a dry finishing that has various advantages like high resistance to diminished coatings quality that reduces scratches, corrosion, chipping, fading, and other wear issues. This powder coating is processed by the finely ground particles of pigment and resin that are charged electrostatically and these are sprayed on the grounded parts.

Rising application of powder coatings in automotive industries and consumer goods due to their high abrasion and anti-corrosive property. Due to these factors, powder coatings play a vital role in protecting metallic and non-metallic substrates. Powder coatings have various advantages compared to other coatings like immediate availability, lower operating costs, excellent appearance, negligible VOC emissions, and uniform thickness. Moreover, it reduces the health hazards to the operators by washing off easily when contacted with human skin.Arkema will work with businesses to explore and improve post-consumer PET recycling (from bottles and other plastic items). To create and develop polyester powder resin for the coating market, it is desired to recover monomers from post-consumer PET for usage as raw materials. According to Arkema, its capabilities and expertise in powder coating enable the business to produce waterborne, UV/LED/EB, high-solid systems, and low-volatile organic compound solutions for the coatings sector. According to the manufacturer, powder coatings are ideally positioned to advance sustainability thanks to an improved coating process that requires little energy, waste, and time and allows for collecting, recycling, and even reusing unused powder. Numerous industries, including those that manufacture cars, sports arenas, home furnishings, and appliances, use powder coatings in various ways.

COVID-19 Analysis:

The COVID-19 outbreak is drastically impacted the global powder coatings market by the lockdowns and disruptions of supply chains. The coronavirus spread all over the world and affected human life. To control the spread of the virus, most of the emerging countries are implementing lockdowns and stringent rules to maintain social distance by closing public places like restaurants, theatres, colleges, and restricting travel. In 2020, according to the report of OICA (Organization Internationale des Constructures d’ Automobiles), 77.62 million vehicles were produced and is lower by 16% in 2019.

Due to these factors, paints and coatings manufacturers faced various challenges and halted production. By the suspension of the construction activities, the demand and sales of paints and coatings were reduced. This leads to the reduction of demand for powder coatings. Hence, the pandemic is negatively impacted on powder coatings. The post-COVID-19, rapidly the construction activities are restarted, governments lift the lockdowns which increase the demand for powder coatings.

Market Dynamics:


Growing demand for powder coatings in the various end-use industries such as automotive, aerospace, consumer goods & appliances, electronics, construction, and furniture is accelerating the powder coatings market growth. A surge in the demand for medical devices and increasing automobiles production are the major factors driving the growth of the market in developing nations like China, India, Brazil, and Mexico during the assessment period.

Owing to its superior characteristics like low operational costs, excellent performance, color availability, and custom properties like anti-corrosion and anti-bacterial functions, powder coatings are highly adopted in the furniture sector.By converting from an enamel coating technique to a powder coating for its new line of electric-powered cookers, ESSE, one of the most prominent names in British industry, is assisting Interpon, the pioneering powder coatings brand from AkzoNobel, in becoming even more sustainable. It wasn't easy to find an enamel substitute, and this search was not just motivated by environmental concerns. The powder coating still needed to function and safeguard the cooker at extremely high temperatures while providing the same quality and "feel" as an expensive item. Because Interpon shares ESSE's commitment to innovation, they were suggested as a partner. The technical specialists at Interpon advised on how to use their HT line of powder coatings with extremely high heat resistance qualities and how to set up the new line and pre-treatment process.


Due to its energy-intensive manufacturing process and fluctuations in raw material prices, the cost of the powder coatings may be expensive which is predicted to restrict the market growth. Complications for obtaining thin films may hinder the market growth during the forecast period. 


The end-users are preferring the low VOC and solvent-free coatings which are expected to create opportunities for the key players in the coming years. Growing investment in the automotive sector is predicted to escalate market growth.


Due to the rising concerns regarding the management of wastewater may face several environmental challenges. The competition from liquid coatings is the challenging factor of powder coatings.
