Key Driving Forces Accelerating the Market Growth

  • Various geographies are witnessing substantial construction activities and infrastructure development projects, including residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. Coating additives play a crucial role in enhancing the performance, durability, and aesthetics of coatings used in these projects, leading to increased demand.
  • There is a rising demand for high-performance coatings with enhanced properties such as durability, scratch resistance, chemical resistance, UV protection, and corrosion resistance. Coating additives, such as rheology modifiers, dispersants, and surface modifiers, are essential in achieving these properties, thus driving market growth.
  • Various regions such as North America have stringent environmental regulations regarding volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions and hazardous substances used in coatings. Coating additives help in reducing VOCs and enhancing the sustainability of coatings, making them compliant with regulations. The need for environmentally friendly coatings is propelling the demand for coating additives.
  • Waterborne coatings are gaining popularity due to their low VOC content, reduced odor, and environmental benefits. Coating additives, such as wetting agents, defoamers, and rheology modifiers, are essential in formulating and improving the performance of waterborne coatings.
  • The automotive industry in North America is witnessing steady growth, driven by factors like rising vehicle production, technological advancements, and increasing consumer demand. Coating additives are extensively used in automotive coatings to provide enhanced durability, weather resistance, gloss, and scratch resistance. The growth of the automotive sector is contributing to the expansion of the coating additives market.
