Competitive landscape of the global powder coatings market depicts significant fragmentation. The market comprises large multinational players offering innovative products that matches the demand of their customers. These manufacturers are increasingly emphasizing on the research and development of powder coatings by abiding to the stringent regulations. Due to the growing competition, companies are also seeking alternatives to enhance business profits and reduce additional costs.
Powder coatings provide good resistance from corrosion and scratching. It is often used in modular furniture such as metal furniture thumbtacks, computer cabinets, and mechanical pens and pencils. The shop owners often use powder coatings for their display racks, shelves, vending machines, and store fixtures.
Among all the end-user industries, the industrial demand for powder coatings is regarded to be the highest due to extensive use of powder coatings in the industrial application. Powder coating has the properties of being performance efficient and aesthetically favorable. The consumer appliances are made up of industrial powder coated parts are being the biggest portion of the powder coating market. Due to the extensive industrial use of powder coatings, the segment is also anticipated to witness the maximum growth in the coming years.
Market players have recently launched new products to meet consumer expectations. For instance, in September 2019, AkzoNobel N.V. introduced Interpon D X-Pro, a scratch-resistant powder coating for matt and satin finishes for the architectural market. This powder coating is less susceptible to abrasions during handling and transportation. Furthermore, in June 2019, Sherwin-Williams launched Powdura 4000 Anodite powder coating. This coating product delivers a smooth, ultra-matte, and powder-coated finish designed to look like anodized metal surfaces.
Based on the application, the market includes categories: Consumer Goods, Architectural, Automotive, General Industries, Furniture, and Others. The Consumer Goods segment and automotive segment together topped the application segment with more than 40% market share in 2018 and is anticipated to expand at an impressive rate on the basis of both consumption and revenue during the forecast period. The upsurge in the sales of consumer goods such as microwave, refrigerator, iron, and other items are driving the demand for powder coating. The powder coating doesn’t emits any hazardous gas and they are solvent free and hence, it is suitable for these appliances. It also increases the durability of consumer appliances apart from being environment friendly.
In the automotive segment, Asia Pacific is slated to be highest producer of electric vehicles in the coming years. India and China are regarded as the highest consumption of powder coatings globally in the automotive market. China is the largest consumer of powder coatings and the country’s automotive industry is increasing at a faster pace. Around 419 million vehicles is going to be registered by 2022 and more than 500 million vehicles by 2030 in China, per the analysis by the University of California published in 2018.
