COVID-19 Impact on Epoxy Coating Market:

The initial outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic occurred in Asia, followed by strict lockdown and detection procedures, leading Epoxy Coating market performance to drop initially and later on rising, which resulted in overall performance being down 1% from the previous year. Due to the long-term recurrence of the COVID-19 outbreak and a lack of effective management in the Euro-American region, continual lockdown measures have severely harmed factory output and commercial circumstances, resulting in inconsistent worldwide performance.


COVID-19 reduced the Epoxy Coating market sales volume to USD 166.7 billion in 2020, down 3.5% from the previous year. Although the Epoxy Coating market's overall tendency shifts in anticipation, substantial differences have emerged in distinct market segments.


In comparison to 2019, the volume of industrial coating demand decreased by 6.5% in 2020. Industrial coating demand was expected not to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic until the second part of 2021. Architectural coating, on the other hand, witnessed 5.4% rise in demand. The sudden decline in CAGR is attributable to this market's demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels.


Epoxy Coating Market Dynamics:

Growing Demand for Epoxy Coating in the Construction Sector:


Epoxy coating are used on concrete floors in a variety of commercial and industrial applications such as manufacturing plants, commercial and retail stores, hospitals, industrial plants, showrooms, warehouses, aircraft hangars, and garages. Terrazzo flooring, colored floors, and hardwood floors are some of the decorative possibilities available when employing an epoxy floor finish. Epoxy floor coating are extremely resistant to corrosion and harsh chemicals, which makes them incredible metal protectants. Epoxy based powder coating are used to poles, coat pipes, reinforcement steel, and pillars in high-load concrete structures. Epoxies provide a wide variety of corrosion protection benefits for naval vessels and subterranean structural foundations.


Because of its ease of cleaning, aesthetics, mechanical strength, and resistance to corrosive substances such as oil, chemicals, and diluted acids, epoxy flooring coatings are often used in factories and warehouses.


Urbanization Trend with Rising Income to Increase Market Growth in India:


According to the World Economic Forum, nearly 38% of Indians are expected to be city residents by 2027. Increased urbanisation in India has sparked a need for housing, particularly high-quality housing in Indian cities. The need for decorative paint will rise in the future as the demand for high-quality residences rises. Due to rising claims and income levels of the middle class in India, demand for architectural paints has grown due to rising revenues and expanding awareness of protective coating applications over the last 10 years. The epoxy coating market is growing due to changing trends in the home renovation sector and rising disposable income.


High Cost of Epoxy Coating is expected to Hamper Market Growth:


Epoxy coatings are more expensive to produce than other coatings. This is due to the fact that the raw materials used in the production process are substantially more expensive than those used in other low-end coatings, and the manufacturing process is complicated with a little margin for error. In addition, most epoxy resins must pass some level of regulation to ensure that they are FDA-compliant and food-safe, which drives up the price.


Epoxy resins are expensive because they are made with high-cost raw ingredients, require expert labour and precision, involve costly marketing, and are usually produced in regions where all of the above are more expensive. Furthermore, when large quantities of these resins are sold, their price climbs even more.


Epoxy Coating Market Competitive Analysis:

The industry's current participants operate on the basis of product price and application attributes. Several large corporations are forging strategic alliances to improve their brand and sales in order to expand their market share and get a competitive advantage. Mergers and acquisitions, investment and growth, and product development have all been used by companies to enhance their market share. Manufacturers invest much in research and development and rely on product variety and low price to achieve technological advances.


In October 2020, after being acquired by an associate of Lone Star, a worldwide private equity company, the MBCC Group has arisen from the former BASF Construction Chemicals business and on October 1, 2020, it will begin operations. Moreover, in September 2020, PPG announced the launch of full range of coating systems that include base coats, prime coats, and topcoats under PPG flooring coating. It is designed to deliver the best performance based on specific work environment. In April 2021, Qatar Sika increased its substantial admixture production capacity and began manufacturing epoxy resins. Epoxy resins are essential components in high-quality floor coverings and adhesives.


Epoxy Coating Market Segment Analysis:

Based on Technology, the market is segmented into Water-Based, Solvent-Based, and Powder-Based coating. Water-based coating is the dominant segment in this market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period. The water-Based segment was created as a replacement for solvent-based coating, which contains a lot of VOC emissions, is less eco-friendly, and causes many health problems. Water-based coating is made using green technology, which is eco-friendly and concedes the safety provisions set by REACH and other government agencies. Water-based technologies are favoured because they are VOC-free and more eco-friendly. Due to developments, water-based coating competes with solvent-based coating for most applications.


Solvent-Based segment accounted for 27% of the total revenue share in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period. The key drivers for the growth of solvent-based coating during the forecast period are the growing industrialization and increase in the use of steel in industrial plant structure fabrication. The Powder-Based segment emerged as the dominant segment in 2017, accounting for 61.4% of the overall industry share. The Powder-Based segment is expected to gain momentum owing to its versatility across various applications such as commercial, industrial, decorative, flooring, non-slip and heavy industrial.
