Waterborne coatings are the finishes or surface coatings, which use water as a solvent to dissolve the resin. Whereas, the solventborne coatings acts as a protective layer and applied to the material surface in the liquid form, thereby providing the prevention from corrosion. These coatings are easy to apply and environmental-friendly. They provide excellent surface properties such as high gloss, rubs resistance, and anti-sealing effects. The waterborne coatings are also excellent primers, owing to their resistance to abrasion and heat. They also facilitate color blending and creates strong adhesion, thereby could be applied in thick or thin coats at the inner and outer surfaces. Additionally, waterborne & solventborne coatings aids in protecting the surface from corrosion and deliver stabilization, high gloss, and wetting. These coatings find its application in architectural, automotive, general industrial, protective, and wood applications. 

The increasing demand for acrylic coatings will lead to increase the development in the waterborne coatings market. The acrylic coatings are durable, flexible, dry quickly, moisture resistant, breathable, and keep their color intact. These properties surge the demand for acrylic coatings in various applications such as masonry surfaces, direct-to-metal applications, primed metals, and furniture & flooring. Furthermore, the stringent regulation for the use of environmental-friendly coatings will propel the demand for waterborne coatings. Hence, these positive factors will provide a lucrative growth for the market during the forecast period.

However, the availability of cheaper substitute coatings associated with the waterborne & solventborne coatings is anticipated to restrict the market growth.
