Epoxy Coating Market Growth Factors

Growing Demand for Epoxy Coating in the Construction Sector to Spur Industry Growth

Epoxy coatings are long-lasting coatings that are utilized for a wide range of applications. These coatings are popular as they provide a quick-drying, durable, and protective coating for metals and other materials. They produce a long-lasting and durable flooring solution when utilized in flooring applications. They are used on concrete floors in a variety of commercial and industrial applications such as commercial and retail stores, manufacturing plants, industrial plants, hospitals, warehouses, showrooms, aircraft hangars, and garages. They have a glossy finish and come in a variety of colors and styles. Terrazzo flooring, hardwood floors, and colored floors are some of the decorative possibilities available when employing an epoxy floor finish. Epoxy floor coatings are chemically resistant and easy to clean flooring solution that may be applied directly to new or existing concrete floors.

They are extremely resistant to corrosion and harsh chemicals, which makes them incredible metal protectants. Epoxy-based powder coatings are used to coat pipes, poles, pillars, and reinforcement steel in high-load concrete structures. Naval vessels and buried structural foundations enjoy a wide range of corrosion protection benefits of epoxies. Epoxy flooring coatings are commonly used in factories and warehouses due of their ease of cleaning, aesthetics, mechanical strength, and resistance to corrosive liquids such as oil, chemicals, and diluted acids.


High Cost of Epoxy Coatings Likely to Hinder Market

Epoxy coatings are costlier to manufacture than other coatings. This is attributed to the fact that the raw ingredients necessary to manufacture are much more expensive than other low-end coatings, and the manufacturing process is complex with a limited tolerance for mistakes. Most epoxy resins must pass some level of regulation to verify that they are FDA-compliant and food-safe, which increases the cost. In addition, the production of epoxy resins and hardener used to produce epoxy based coatings requires a lot of energy, contributing to various greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, epoxy floor coatings release volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which contribute to air pollution. The increasing environmental pollution and high cost of epoxy-based coatings are likely to hinder the market growth.

Water-based Segment to Generate High Revenue Owing to Environment Sustainability

Based on type, the market is segmented into water-based, solvent-based, and powder-based coatings. Water-based coating held the dominant epoxy coating market share in 2023, and was created as a replacement for solvent-based coatings, which contain a lot of VOC emissions, are less eco-friendly, and cause a lot of health problems. Water-based coatings are made using green technology, which is more environment-friendly and complies with the safety requirements set by REACH and other government agencies.

Water-borne technologies are preferred as they are VOC-free and more environment-friendly. Due to developments, water-borne coatings continue to compete with solvent-borne coatings for most applications.

By Application Analysis

Construction Segment to Hold Significant Share Due to Rise in Residential, Commercial, and Industrial Projects

The market is segmented into construction, transportation, industrial, and others. Construction is the largest application of market. Rapid urbanization, rising disposable income, and expanding GDP in the Asia Pacific surge the demand for residential, commercial, and industrial infrastructure, as well as residential and commercial building renovations and re-painting.

Epoxy based coating demand in the motor vehicle industry has decreased as a result of temporary factory closures. Moreover, manufacturing of non-essential commodities was halted in many parts of the world for several months to a year, which also resulted in the decline in product demand. However, by 2024, demand for OEM coatings in the motor vehicle market is expected to surge, fueled by recovering vehicle manufacturing, particularly in Asia Pacific, where output is expected to skyrocket. This would boost the market.

The steady demand from industrial applications will drive the consumption of epoxy coatings during the forecast period. Efficacy in offering excellent bond strength and chemical resistance has made epoxy-based coatings an ideal choice for industrial floor coating applications. Another advantage of these coatings is the ease of application, which can be applied in various ways using several application methods. As it prevents new concrete floors from cracking and tearing along with resistance to crop growth, it is set to drive the demand for epoxy coatings in industrial applications during the forecast period.
