Asia-Pacific excluding Japan will Remain Most Lucrative Market for Transportation Coating

Sep 29,2017 | Chemicals & Materials

Over the past decades, engineered particularly for withstanding mechanical as well as thermal stress, high performance coatings have experienced a substantial adoption in transportation sector. These transportation coating have then been integrated into the vehicle production. The practice of coating surfaces of metal in long haul trailers and trucks with the high-velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF) has been exercised actively in the production of vehicles as well as their components that are used for the purpose of transportation.

According to Future Market Insights’ (FMI) recently published report, the global market for transportation coating will account for revenues over US$ 12 Bn by 2022-end. The report has projected future of transportation coatings in being important industrial materials for utilisation in the transportation sector for the five year assessment period (2017-2022). The report also delivers analysis on key regional segments, wherein Asia-Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) has been anticipated to remain the most lucrative market for transportation coatings over the assessment period.

Sales of Solvent-based Coatings to Exhibit Fastest Expansion through 2022

The report has also analysed the global market for transportation coatings based on the types of coatings. Global sales of solvent-based transportation coatings are estimated to bring in nearly US$ 3.5 Bn revenues in 2017. Projected to account for nearly two-fifth share revenue share of the market, solvent-based transportation coatings will exhibit the fastest expansion throughout the assessment period. Demand for these coatings has been anticipated to rise, owing to their characteristics of being less prone to changes in humidity and temperature.

However, high VOC emissions are associated with manufacturing solvent-based transportation coatings that leads to an environment adversity. This factor has been expected to be a key restraint in adoption of solvent-based transportation coatings. In addition, demand for power coatings is expected to remain steady in the global market for transportation coatings. A robust expansion has been projected for sales of pre-treatment coatings through 2022.

Utilisation of Transportation Coatings from OEMs to Remain a Healthy Practice for Industries in Transportation Business

OEMs are projected to account for approximately half revenue share of the market in 2017, and will further witness a rise in their market share through 2022. OEMs will remain largest end-users of transportation coating. Polymer coatings and epoxies are actively being integrated into the production of vehicle chassis, engine parts, and several other key components. It will remain a healthy practice for industries in transportation business to utilise transportation coatings through OEMs. The end-use of transportation coatings will continue to register the fastest expansion in the heavy-duty truck industry through 2022.

Metal Coating Application to Account for Largest Revenue Share of Transportation Coating Market in 2017

On the basis of application, the plastic coating application has been estimated by the report to exhibit highest revenue expansion throughout the assessment period. More than US$ 3.8 Bn worth of transportation coatings are estimated to be sold for application in plastic coatings by 2022-end. In addition, the report projects the metal coating applications to account for the largest revenue share of the market in 2017. Leading companies of transportation coatings are anticipated to focus on boosting the application of coatings on plastic surfaces. Several players in the market are adopting new techniques of fastening such as elastic bonding. These players are also offering aging resistant adhesives for enhancing performance of transportation coatings.
