Resin Type - Segment Analysis
Acrylic is the widely used resin type in the Industrial Coatings Market. Acrylic resin is mainly engineered metal derivate that enhance the performance of the industrial coatings. The main benefits of acrylic industrial coatings are the ease of use, physical properties, and their low costs. Also, the acrylic based industrial coatings have excellent physical properties, which are attained very quickly because of their rapid drying nature. They are fungus resistant, provide longer than average pot life, and have excellent moisture protection. Roof coatings are growing in popularity and a wide range of homeowners are turning to acrylic coating as it is environmentally friendly. Their durability, coupled with their ability to decrease the monthly energy bill, is two of the main advantages that an acrylic coating has to provide.According to International Trade Centre (ITC), the world export of acrylic resins was worth USD 13,490,819 thousand in 2016, and USD 15,291,934 thousand in 2017, which further increased to USD 17,152,076 thousand in 2018. Hence, the increasing demand for acrylic resin is expected to drive the industrial coatings market during the forecast period.
Technology- Segment Analysis
Solvent-Borne technique is extensively used in the Industrial Coatings Market. A solvent-borne industrial coating is a liquid protective layer that is primarily composed of organic compounds and applied to a material's surface to prevent corrosion. Solvent-borne industrial coatings are typically more resilient than water-borne coatings during the curing of the coating. Solvent-borne industrial coatings cure due to a chemical reaction between oxygen in the atmosphere and the constituents of the solvent-borne industrial coating, and not by the evaporation of water. This makes humidity less of a factor for solvent-borne industrial coatings. These coatings have one major advantage over other industrial coatings. They are less susceptible to environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity during the curing phase. Humidity can actually prevent the water in a water-based coating from evaporating, making them impractical in some climates.
End Use- Segment Analysis
Transportation Sector held the largest share in the Industrial Coatings Market in 2019 and is expected to rise at a CAGR of 5.90% in terms of revenue during the forecast period from 2020-2025.

The transportation industry is among the world’s most competitive industries where industrial coatings are used to increase application efficiency, productivity, and offer improved durability. Industrial coatings are done in transportation for the long haul on the toughest on-road and off-road terrain. Also, an industrial coating extends the life of the transports through outstanding corrosion protection, enduring color and long-lasting gloss. Furthermore, increasing demand of automotive refinish for maintenance and repair of vehicle along with growing requirement for electric and hybrid vehicles considering carbon emissions will boost the industrial coatings market.According to the International Transport Forum, the global GDP grew by 3.6% between 2017 and 2018, rising at a slightly lower rate than the year before. Therefore, with the rising transport sector, the growth for industrial coatings market is anticipated to rise in the forecast period.

Drivers –Industrial Coatings Market
- Growing trends of automotive refinish coatings
The advent of autonomous and electric cars is making waves in the auto refinish world. As OEMs increasingly adopt the use of ADAS (advanced driver-assistance systems), body shops are consequently seeing an increase in the complexity and cost of repairs with the significant effort required to maintain and calibrate these systems in line with OEM specifications. Additionally, the drive to reduce overall CO2 emission of vehicles through weight reduction, and the use in body sensors is resulting in the need for new repair coatings that can cope with light-weight multi-substrate vehicles while ensuring radar and LIDAR safety systems are not impacted. Also, auto refinish manufacturers are seeing a strong move into cosmetic repair coming from allied automotive industries, rather than from traditional collision repair streams, where these activities can be aligned along with glass replacement, mechanical service, or specifically focused on serving the growing trend in automotive mobility services. The growing developments and the rising trends of automotive refinish tend to increase the market growth of industrial coatings.
- Tremendous advancements in the shipbuilding industry across APAC
Chinese Association of Shipbuilding Industry (CASI), Asia Pacific, led by China, South Korea and Japan, has made tremendous advancements in the shipbuilding industry. China emerged as the global leader, the research states, with new orders accounting for more than 33 percent of the global shipbuilding industry. Asia Pacific will have a significant share of the overall industry owing to large-scale shipbuilding activities in China, Japan, South Korea, Philippines and Taiwan. In Europe, for example, major shipping countries such as Greece, Germany, Norway (the maritime hubs) continue to have the highest demand for marine coatings. APAC (specifically Japan, China, and Singapore) also has a high demand. The growing demand of import and export via waterways tends to increase the demand of marine coatings around the globe, which leads the growth of industrial coatings globally over the forecast period.
Challenges – Industrial Coatings Market
- Fluctuations in Raw Material Prices
Due to recent price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia, as well as the on-going tension between U.S and China, the crude oil prices have highly got impacted.
