Historical (2017 to 2021) Vs. Forecast (2022 to 2032) Market Outlook

Over the period of time covered by the study (2017 to 2021), additive manufacturing processes, and PU Coating, in particular, have seen significant growth in their customer base. The market for PU Coatings was recorded to grow at a phenomenal CAGR of 4.9% between 2017 and 2021, mostly due to the rising need for polyurethane products in the automotive and transportation sectors.

On the other hand, the market's expansion is probably going to be hampered by the failing automobile sector and the detrimental effects of COVID-19 in 2020, which will get recovered by 2021

Whereas, as per the latest survey conducted by FMI, the PU Coating materials market is expected to progress at a CAGR of 5.3% between 2022 and 2032. The rising penetration of PU Coating in construction industries and increasing construction rate in developing countries and renovation rate in developed countries.

The expansion of the construction industry is also being fuelled by expanding government programs like smart cities and FDI in the construction development sector as well as rising infrastructure spending. Furthermore, the demand for polyurethane is expected to increase as green buildings become more and more popular throughout the world, which is expected to promote industry growth.

Market Dynamics

PU Coating Has Shown to be Constructive in the Automotive Industry

The polyurethane coating industry will rise as a result of this increase in the production and consumption of automobiles, which will enhance the use of polyurethane coating in the automotive sector. In the automotive sector, polyurethane coatings are frequently used as an automobile primer, intermediate coat, and finishing paint

For instance, 2.1 million commercial cars were produced in the EU in 2021, a 1% increase from 2020, according to the European Automobile Manufacture Association, the overall number of new cars registered in the European Union in 2019 climbed by 1.2%, totaling more than 15.3 million units.

The polyurethane coating industry will rise as a result of this increase in the production and consumption of automobiles, which will enhance the use of polyurethane coating in the automotive sector.

Additionally, the market is expanding at a faster rate due to quick industrialization and urbanization. The growing sales of passenger and commercial vehicles in emerging nations are probably going to give the market expansion in the projected period of time another boost.

Challenges Faced by PU coating Market

Polyurethane coatings are excellent for many purposes, but they are not a universally applicable solution. The vulnerability of this coating material to moisture is one of its key drawbacks. Bubbles may occur when moisture damages polyurethane-coated flooring, producing ugly stains and flaws on the surface. Polyurethane coatings are therefore inappropriate for locations with significant amounts of moisture or humidity due to this vulnerability.

Additionally, polyurethane has a finite pot life, which means that the coating is only useable while it is vicious. Due to its susceptibility to moisture, polyurethane coating may only be used in certain industries, which might impede the industry's expansion.

Increase in Volume of Crude Oil Production Directly Influences PU Coating Market

Polyurethane, which can stand extreme degrees of corrosiveness, pressure, abrasion, impact, and heat, is the ideal compromise material between plastics and metals. Tools and parts used in the extraction, transportation, and compression of oil are coated with polyurethane to enhance their longevity.

As a result, the production of crude oil has increased in response to the rising demand for oil-based fuel. For instance, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries estimates that in November 2021, the output of crude oil grew in Saudi Arabia to 9.87 million barrels per day, Iraq to 4.24 million barrels per day, and Nigeria to 1.42 million barrels per day.

More polyurethane coating will be used for tool and component coating as a result of this rise in oil output. The industry for polyurethane coatings will increase as a result.
