During the same year, the new car registrations in the European Union increased by 6% compared to the statistics in the year 2015.
Water-based Technology- the Fastest Growing Sector
The VOCs released from solvent-based coatings is the core reason for the switch of manufacturers to water-based coatings. The water-based coatings are increasingly replacing organic solvents. There are many regulations from several governments, which support water-based coatings. These are usually used in several applications, which include transportation, building and construction, and industrial applications. Water-borne coatings exhibit high mechanical strength and toughness along with electrical and thermal properties. The absence of Isocyanate, flammable constituents, costly ventilation systems makes water-based coatings as the first option.
Asia-Pacific to Lead among Other Regions
Asia-Pacific is the largest coatings market across the globe with a 45% share of the global epoxy coatings market. In the region, China, India, and Japan account for higher shares. China has a share of around 56% of the coatings demand in the region. The conversion of the paints and coatings manufacturers in to service providers makes it a highly productive option. The manufacturers are also providing the service of painting job as well; this is being done with the help of trained contractors as partners. India is to grow at a faster rate than China, thus providing new opportunities for the epoxy coatings market.
