Paints refer to pigmented liquids used to improve the aesthetics of the substrate, whereas coatings are primarily used to enhance surface properties and prevent substrate deterioration. Some commonly available product variants include waterborne, powder, high solids, radiation curing, and solvent-borne coatings. It is widely used in decorating industrial equipment, residential and non-residential infrastructures, and buildings. Paints and coatings exhibit anti-fouling, flame retardancy, and anti-microbial properties. They also protect the surface from adverse environmental conditions, weathering, rust, and chemical exposure. As a result, they find extensive applications across the marine, construction, automobile, and transportation industries.

Paints and Coatings Market Trends:
Significant growth in the construction industry across the globe is creating a positive outlook for the market. Paints and coatings are widely used on panels, windows, walls, roofs, door frames, and interior extrusions for protection, decoration, and aesthetics. Additionally, the widespread product adoption in the automotive industry, owing to their color stability, continuous protective film formation, corrosion, abrasion and scratch resistance, flexibility, and durability, is favoring the market growth. Apart from this, the introduction of volatile organic compounds (VOC) free, block resistant, and organic paints and coatings manufactured using natural ingredients like lemon peel extract, seed, clay, vegetable, and soybean oil is providing an impetus to the market growth. In line with this, the increasing utilization of environment-friendly and green coatings that minimize the adverse effects of infrared and ultraviolet (UV) radiations and improve the overall efficiency is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the growing environmental consciousness among the masses and the increasing demand for waterborne and powder-based coatings are providing a considerable boost to the market. Other factors, including extensive research and development (R&D) activities, the implementation of various government initiatives promoting infrastructural development, and the increasing inclination toward renovation activities, are supporting the market growth.
