Coating Solvent Market Revenue Growth Predicted by 2018 to 2027

The coating solvents market will record a modest growth, with global sales estimated at over 11,500 ‘000 units in 2018, according to a new report of Fact.MR. Tier 1 players are expected to hold nearly 50% share of the coating solvents market. Key expansion strategies of these coating solvents manufacturers include partnerships and collaborations with emerging players to leverage their innovative capabilities and enhance regional market footprint.

Tier 1 players are expected to hold nearly 50% share of the coating solvents market. Key expansion strategies of these coating solvents manufacturers include partnerships and collaborations with emerging players to leverage their innovative capabilities and enhance regional market footprint.

However, worldwide sales of bio-based coating solvents currently account for just over 10% share of the market. In the EU alone, bio-based solvents hold less than 13% of overall coating solvents sales (630,000 tons/5 million tons). However, this niche coating solvents category is expected to gain significant traction in the near future, while permeating key applications such as architectural coatings and industrial equipment coatings.

Xylene & Toluene and Alcohols – Top-Seller Variants of Coating Solvents

With evolving requirements of the end-users coating solvents manufacturers have introduced various products, ranging from xylene and toluene to alcohols. These two top-seller variants of coating solvents will collectively account for approximately 75% volume share. Gains are also expected from acetone, which is foreseen to record a relatively faster volume growth in 2018 and beyond.

Formulators are continuously putting efforts for the development of coating solvents with the aid of new and improved polymers. These developments are primarily aimed at utilization of suitable solvent combinations, however manufacturer efforts are being tugged by environmental regulations. Key regulations, such as the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs) of EPA, Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA), and Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) have significantly confined prospects of the coating solvents, particular those formulated using petrochemicals.

APEJ to Lead with Over 30% Volume Share than Other Regional Markets

Fact.MR report opines that Asia-Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) is expected to spearhead the coating solvents market, accounting for over 30% volume share than all the other regional markets assessed in the report. Majority of APEJ’s coating solvents market is expected to be concentrated in China, with global sales estimated to exceed 2,300 units in 2018. Majority of the demand is driven by end-use industries who focus on decreasing the number of recoats, and improve lifespan of their structures and products.
