Opportunities: Increasing applications of fluoropolymers in the building & construction industry
In the building & construction industry, fluoropolymers such as polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) are used in both industrial as well as architectural coatings. PVDF is used especially in architectural applications, where both excellent appearance and substrate protection have to be maintained for a long period. PVDF is the most preferred fluoropolymer since it has enough solvency in ester and ketone solvents and the same can be formulated into solvent dispersion coatings.
Architectural end-use industry is the fastest-growing segment of the overall Paints & Coatings market.
Architectural paints & coatings, also known as decorative paints & coatings or building paints, are applied to the interior and exterior walls of all types of residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings. Apart from their decorative features, architectural paints & coatings also possess some protective features. For instance, exterior architectural paints & coatings protect a building from extreme rain, sunlight, and wind. These are applied either by building contractors or directly by customers as do-it-yourself (DIY). Architectural coatings also find use in decorative interiors such as furniture, wood flooring, wall paintings, and sculptures. An increase in environmental awareness among consumers and manufacturers has led to technological innovations in the coating industry to provide quality products that are affordable, of high quality, possess value-added features, and meet the global trends. Similarly, growing safety standards will raise the demand for waterproof and fireproof coatings for buildings.
Asia Pacific is the largest Paints & Coatings market during the forecast period.
Asia Pacific encompasses a diverse range of economies with different levels of economic development and multiple industries. The development of the market is mainly attributed to the high economic growth rate followed by heavy investment across industries, such as automotive, consumer goods & appliances, building & construction, and furniture. Key players are expanding their pa ints and coatings production in Asia Pacific , especially in China and India. The advantages of shifting production to the region are the low cost of production and the ability to better cater to the emerging local markets.
