Key Market Trends

Solvent-borne Technology to Witness the Highest Growth Rate

  • Solvent-borne paints are manufactured by using liquefying agents that evaporate during a chemical reaction with oxygen. The air surrounding a solvent-borne coating helps speed up the reaction, thereby reducing the drying time.
  • Solvent-borne coatings are less susceptible to environmental conditions, such as temperature and humidity, during the curing phase, when compared to water-based coatings. This is a major advantage, making solvent-based coatings, more preferable.
  • The growing applications of solvent-borne coatings for doors, cabinet and furniture, metal doors and railings, industrial equipment, and maintenance of steel structures have driven the market for solvent-based coatings and paints.
  • In the Middle East, the demand for solvent-borne coatings is increasing at a stagnant rate, due to the shift in preference toward water-borne coatings. This shift is majorly due to increasing environmental concerns, which led to governmental regulations being supportive of water-borne coatings, as they have a lower VOC content.
