“Acrylic resin is estimated to be the largest growing segment in the architectural end-use industry.”
Acrylics are available in various forms, such as emulsions (latex), lacquers, enamels, and powders, out of which the most common form is acrylic latex. The chief acrylic polymers are acrylic and methacrylic acid, which provide a polymer structure with little tendency to absorb UV light and increase their resistance to weathering and oxidation compared to oil-based paints, alkyds, or epoxies. Acrylics possess good colors and gloss retention. Acrylic in powder coatings ranges from thin-film clear coats to very smooth coats and provides a high-performance finish with outstanding weather resistance and high-gloss colors, making them ideal for outdoor applications with excellent exterior durability. Acrylic coatings are waterborne, easy to handle, moderately priced, and perform well in various applications such as roof and wall coating. They are cured by water evaporation, exhibiting a reasonable degree of cohesive strength, and provide good adhesion to most roof surfaces. These resin-based coatings are used in numerous architectural applications.

“Polyurethane resin to gain the maximum market share of Industrial End-use industry during the forecast period.”
Polyurethane resins are created by combining polyalcohol with organic di-isocyanate. Polyurethane resin paints have exceptional durability, toughness, and gloss and are easy to clean. Polyurethane resin paints are employed in a variety of applications around the world because of their qualities. Polyurethane paints are also employed in applications requiring great performance, such as oil-rig towers, warehouses, industrial plants, heat-resistant coatings, and bridges. Heavy-duty exterior and interior structural coating, clean rooms, paper mills, power plants, offshore structures, oil field machinery, outside surfaces of steel tanks, handrails, conveyors, and chemical processing equipment are some further applications for polyurethane resin paints and coatings.

“Germany is estimated to be the largest and fastest-growing segment of the European Paints and Coatings market.”
