According to the report, the global plastic coatings industry garnered $6.5 billion in 2019, and is projected to generate $8.8 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2020 to 2027.

Prime determinants of growth

The ongoing trend of lightweight vehicles and increase in adoption from the construction industry propel the growth of the global plastic coatings market. However, strict environmental policies and regulations regarding volatile organic content (VoC) restrict the market growth. On the other hand, emerging end-use industries in developing nations create new opportunities in the next few years.

Covid-19 Scenario

  • Daily operations of the coating manufacturing facilities have been stopped during the lockdown. Moreover, R&D activities have been disrupted.
  • The supply and distribution activities have been halted in the wake of lockdown imposed by governments for curbing the spread of coronavirus.
  • The demand from automotive and construction sectors has been reduced significantly with operations in these sectors halting. However, the demand is expected to increase steadily as restrictions of lockdown are eased off.
  • As manufacturing and on-field operations begin, the demand for plastic coatings in different industries would gain gradually.

The epoxy segment to maintain its lead position during the forecast period

By type, the epoxy segment held the highest market share, accounting for nearly two-fifths of the total market share of the global plastic coatings market in 2019, and will maintain its lead position during the forecast period. This is due to its adoption in different applications for its benefits such as better finishing, durability, economical nature, and others. However, the acrylic segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR of 5.8% from 2020 to 2027.
