Coil coatings are witnessing a rapid surge in demand, thanks to their increasing application in the construction, automotive, and consumer appliances industries. The rising urbanization in emerging economies has stimulated construction activities in those regions. Coil coatings, being significant construction consumables, are utilized widely in construction activities. The anti-corrosion and harsh weather resistant properties of these coatings have added significantly to its increasing application over the last few years. The increasing number of commercial as well as residential construction projects are likely to fuel the demand for coil coatings considerably in the near future.

According to a study by Transparency Market Research, the demand for coil coatings is likely to remain high due to major construction projects coming up across the world in the near future. The market’s opportunity is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.20% during the period from 2015 to 2023 and increase from US$4 bn in 2014 to US$6.3 bn by the end of 2023.



Demand for Polyester Coil Coatings to Remain High

Polyester coatings, polyurethane coatings, plastisol coatings, polyvinylidene fluoride coatings, and silicone modified polyester coatings are the key coil coatings available across the world. Polyester coil coatings have occupied the leading position among these. In 2014, the segment accounted for a share of 64% in the overall demand for coil coatings, which is likely to increase to 64.2% by 2023.

As polyester provides a superior resistance to corrosion and harsh weather to the coated material in almost all conditions, its demand is increasing significantly across a number of application of coil coatings. In addition to this, the low-price of polyester coil coatings is expected to keep the demand for these coating high in the years to come. The demand for polyvinylidene fluoride coil coatings is also projected to increase significantly due to their longevity and aesthetic appeal over the next few years.

Coil Coatings to Witness Sizeable Demand in Asia Pacific

The worldwide coil coating market stretches across Asia Pacific, Latin America, Europe, North America, and the Middle East and Africa. Currently, Asia Pacific leads the consumption of coil coatings across the world. The rapid rise in the construction industry, stimulated by the growing urbanization, has boosted the demand for these coatings in this region.

Analysts expect this trend to remain increasing over the forthcoming years, owing to increasing number of non-residential construction projects in India, China, and Japan. The demand share of Asia Pacific in the overall coil and coatings market is estimated to increase from 42.4% in 2014 to 44.2% by the end of 2023. Other regions are also expected to record healthy growth in the demand for coil coatings in the near future.

The global market for coil coatings is moderately consolidated in nature. In 2014, the top four manufacturers of coil coatings, namely, The Valspar Corp., Akzo Nobel N. V, Beckers Group, and PPG Industries Inc. led this market with a share of 56%. BASF SE, Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, Axalta Coating Systems LLC, Bulk Chemicals Inc., Nippon Paint Co. Ltd., The Dow Chemical Co., and Dura Coat Products Inc. are some of the other prominent participants in this market.

Coil coatings are multilayered complex coatings of resins, pigments, and primers over metal rolls. Metal substrates (usually steel and aluminum) are roll coated in order to provide weather resistance and corrosion resistance. Coated metal rolls, sheets, and strips are then molded into necessary shapes. These coil coated metal objects are used in construction projects, automotive fabrication, appliances, HVAC systems, and furniture.

It highlights factors contributing to the growth of the market. It also enumerates the restraints of the market. Detailed forecast for coil coatings from 2015 to 2023 has been provided separately for better understanding of the market scenario. The coil coatings market is described with respect to various segments along with potential opportunities during the next six years. 

In terms of geography, the global coil coatings market has been segmented into the following regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa (MEA). Each region has been further divided into countries that are key markets for coil coatings. The study also analyzes market attractiveness for key countries with the help of the market attractiveness tool. 

The study segments the global coil coatings market on the basis of products (active ingredients) such as polyester, silicone modified polyester, Polyvinylidene fluoride, polyurethane, plastisols, and others (including epoxides and acrylics). It provides forecasts and estimates for each product segment in terms of revenue and volume during the forecast period for each region, including countries as well. 

The study also segments the global coil coatings market on the basis of end-user industries such as construction, automotive, appliances, and others (including packaging, furniture and HVAC). It provides forecasts and estimates for each application segment in terms of revenue and volume during the forecast period for each region, including countries as well. 

Increasing demand for coil coatings in key end-user industries such as construction, especially non-residential construction, is projected to fuel the global coil coatings market. Swift growth in global population, especially in developing countries, is anticipated to boost the construction, automotive, and appliances markets in these countries. This, in turn, is projected to propel the demand for coil coatings. Rapid pace of industrial development and rising prosperity of the population in developing countries is a stimulant for growth of sales of products such as furniture, appliances, automotive, and houses. Coil coatings used in the manufacture of these products in order to impart longevity through weather resistance, corrosion resistance, and aesthetic appeal. However, demand for coil coatings in Europe is likely to decline from previous levels owing to severe debt crisis in the region. Market players are shifting their focus from the once dominant Europe market to Asia and other fast growing regions. Middle East & Africa is projected to offer opportunities for market growth primarily owing to growth in construction and appliances industries in the region.
