Key Market Trends

Increasing Construction Activities to Drive the Demand

  • Alkyds are used extensively in architectural coatings – it is one of the most highly consumed types of coatings used in the world, despite the increasing use of other film formers.
  • The success of alkyd resin systems is a result of their relatively low cost, versatility, and long familiarity with users. Promoters of alkyd resins note that they are partly made from fatty acids or oils derived from renewable sources, making them greener than most competitive coating resins.
  • Look but also to protect it from blistering summers, freezing winters, soaking rain, and the daily bombardment of UV radiation without fading, peeling away, and cracking.
  • Besides this, paints and coatings are also used in interiors of houses to add colors or decorative purposes, along with a wide range of other functions. Their functions vary depending upon the type of environment and room that they are used on.
  • Water-based alkyd coatings are highly durable, lasting nearly twice the customary time frame (depending on formulation), with slow erosion instead of damaging peeling, which allows easy renovation when needed without the need to sand or strip all previous stain.
  • Increasing construction industry across the globe primarily in India and China is likely to have a positive impact on the market.

Asia-pacific to Dominate the Market

  • Asia-Pacific dominated the market primarily owing to the increasing regulations coupled with the rising construction industry in China and India.
  • For instance, China’s 13th Five Year Plan started in 2016, and it was an important year for the country’s engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) industry. In addition, the country ventured into new business models domestically and internationally, during the year. Although the construction sector slowed down after 2013, it is still a major contributor to the GDP of the country.
  • Also, the Indian government has been actively boosting housing construction, as it aims to provide a home to about 1.3 billion people. The country is likely to witness around ~USD 1.3 trillion of investment in housing over the next seven years and is likely to witness the construction of 60 million new homes in the country. The availability of affordable housing in the country is expected to rise by around 70% by 2024.
  •  In Japan, in 2019, a sudden rise in residential construction and projects related to the Tokyo Olympics 2020 prompted to the growth of construction industry during 2019. However, with the outbreak of corona virus, the Tokyo Olympics is further postponed to 2021.
  • Such growing demand in various countries is in turn boosting the demand of the market studied.
