Global Coating Pre-treatment Market 2017-2021
About Coating Pre-treatment
Coating pre-treatment is defined as the process of removing contaminants from the metal surface and modifying the surface to a non-conductive one. The surface of the substrate is cleaned and modified to provide better adhesion and corrosion resistance. Iron and zinc phosphates are predominantly used due to the growing demand for cold-rolled steel, hot-dip galvanized steel, aluminum sheet, and extrusion applications.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global coating pre-treatment market to grow at a CAGR of 6.05% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Coating Pre-treatment Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global coating pre-treatment market: AkzoNobel, Axalta Coating Systems, BASF, Henkel, PPG Industries, and 3M.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Kansai Paint, Nihon Parkerizing, Nippon Paint, Sanchem, and Troy Chemical Industries.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increasing use of zirconium. Phosphates are being gradually replaced by zirconium due to its environment-friendly features. The weight of the zirconium and zinc phosphate varies from 145-200 mg/sq ft.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing demand for automobiles. The demand for automobiles is increasing year-over-year. The industry has started to recover from the global crisis of 2012. China’s auto production has increased significantly with the improving economic conditions, decreasing price trends, and increasing urbanization. The global passenger vehicle fleet sales accounted for 71.69 million units in 2016 with a growth rate of approximately 3.92% year-over-year.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is increasing environmental concerns. The process of surface preparation generates a large amount of hazardous wastes, which includes a combination of oil, debris, and lead dust. The use of traditional zinc phosphate pre-treatment produces sludge as a byproduct. This waste is dangerous and can cause carcinoma. VOCs are the prime pollutants released by the metal coating industries, and they are hazardous to the liver, kidney, and central nervous system.
