Urbanization becomes the Undercurrent for Growing Demand for Construction Paints and Coatings
The primary growth driver for the global construction paints and coatings market is the sudden rise in the construction activities across the world. This is a predominant trend in Asia Pacific, which is proving to be a lucrative region for growth to the overall market. Strengthening economies and growing urbanization are the two key factors supporting the uptake of construction paints and coatings. The rising disposable incomes and improving purchasing powers is also encouraging various builders to investment in high-quality construction materials, which has made a generous contribution to the revenues of construction paints and coatings.
The growth of the overall market is also attributable to the increasing demand for waterborne coatings. Consumers and builders are opting for these over solvent-based coatings as they are eco-friendly and less hazardous to human life. The stringent regulatory framework that emphasizes less usage of VOC has forced manufacturers to develop environment-friendly alternatives. In recent times, the demand for waterborne paints and coatings has drastically shot up due to increasing construction activity in Japan after the recent earthquakes.
The rapid pace of infrastructural development in APAC countries is driving the overall construction paints and coatings market. Efforts to modernize the existing infrastructure is also likely to make a generous contribution towards the escalating revenues of the overall market.
Harmful Effects of VOC Deter Global Market
The strict regulations pertaining to the use of harmful chemicals to make construction paints and coatings is acting as a prominent deterrent in the global market. The problem lies with high usage of VOCs that are known to be harmful to human health and the environment. Thus, governments across the globe have raised concerns about the usage of VOC in manufacturing construction paints and coatings.
The volatile nature of raw material prices has also had a negative impact on the trajectory of the global construction paints and coatings market. Oftentimes, it compels manufacturers to increase the prices of the final product, which in turn hampers the profitability of the overall market.
