Water-Soluble Coatings Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Formaldehyde, Polyurethane, Alkyds, Epoxy, Fluoropolymers, Others), By Application (Building & Construction, Automotive, Furniture, Electronics, Marine, Aerospace, Paper and Printing) And Regional Forecast 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI104251 | Status : Ongoing



Water-soluble coatings are also called dispersion coatings. These coatings contain almost 80% of water and a small number of other solvents which include glycol ethers. Some of the important categories of water-soluble coatings include formaldehyde, polyurethane, alkyds, epoxy, and fluoropolymers. Additionally, the water-soluble coatings are easy to apply, heat & abrasion resistant, environment friendly, and provide strong adhesion to the substrate.  These benefits make it an ideal choice over solvent-based coatings. The coatings are used to paint and coat various surfaces of products such as buildings, furniture, and automobile parts.

The water-soluble coatings market is growing at a rapid pace owing to increasing the demand for the product in the building & construction application. In the construction activities, the water-soluble coatings are primarily used for screed compound, damp proofing, waterproofing, plaster additive, and crack filling. The rising demand for better physical infrastructures coupled with advancement in the coatings will surge the product demand. Hence, the increasing demand for the product in building & construction application will contribute to water-soluble coatings market growth during the forecast period.

However, the high price of water-soluble coatings owing to fluctuation in the raw material prices impacts the overall demand. This also restricts their adoption in various applications. Hence, this is anticipated to hamper the market growth.  

Key Market Driver -

The rising demand for water-soluble coatings in the building & construction applications to drive the market growth.
