The major function of a coating additive is to address problems hindering the performance of coatings; as the problem would include foaming, wetting & dispersing, inconsistent rheology, biocides, etc. Thus, the industry players have begun focusing on developing and launching additives which would facilitate the formulators to achieve the right proportion along with high performance. With the tightening environmental regulations, formulators are forced to reduce the VOC content in their products. This has caused a shift towards the use of water-borne or powder coatings, wherever it is possible. It has, thus, become important for them to find a right balance between the product performance and content of their product. Hence, careful selection of the right additive plays an important role in the performance of coatings in its end-use application.
According to estimates, Asia-Pacific did lead the market for coating additives with 40.8% share at global level in 2012, followed by North America (26.9%), Europe (20.2%), South America (8.1%) and Rest of the World (4.1%). Looking at additives type, acrylic-based coating additives leads demand with highest share, followed by urethane, metallic, and fluoropolymer-based additives.
The growth of the Coating Additives Market has been studied through in-depth analysis of major factors that are driving the market such as, growing demand for multifunctional additives with opportunities in the development of multifunctional coating additives. However, the difficulties faced by the formulators and environmental regulations are proving to be the major restraining factors for the market.
