Waterborne Coatings Market Promises Robust Growth, Acrylic Coatings to Dominate Growth

The waterborne coatings market is expected to witness robust growth, as acrylic coatings promise to hold more than 50% of the share in the market. Their soluble qualities, and high-capacities to absorb water for end-applications promise robust growth for the market with a 5.0% CAGR. The global waterborne coatings market is expected to reach the estimated value of US$ 114.70bn by the end of 2026. The promising growth in the near future in manufacturing, and construction sector is expected to emerge as key driver for growth.

Among all different types of coatings, polyurethane is likely to dominate market growth in the near future. The segment has witnessed growing demand due to applications for highly rigid and tough surfaces. The high-resistance of these coatings, and their durability promises robust growth for the waterborne coatings market in the near future. Additionally, the segment is also expected to witness robust growth as chemical and physical resistance for applications like metal, textiles, and plastics is also on the rise.

Among different regions, Asia Pacific is expected to witness highest CAGR-driven growth. Rising demand for coatings in the region, increase in construction, and manufacturing, and rising disposable incomes are expected to drive growth for the waterbone coatings market. North America will likely register highest revenues as construction sector booms back up to drive robust growth.
