    • Polyurea coatings offer certain benefits over other coating systems due to their zero VOC emissions and recyclability, which makes them a preferred choice because of their eco-friendly properties. Most coating materials are known to emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) during and after application. VOC emissions are harmful for humans, and can cause respiratory complications. Therefore, increased environmental awareness is expected to drive the demand for polyurea coatings.

Key Factors Impacting Polyurea Coatings Market Growth

  • Superiority of polyurea coatings over other industrial coatings
    • In comparison with epoxy and polyurethane coatings, polyurea coatings have highly superior and advanced characteristic properties.
    • Compared to epoxy coatings, polyurea coatings have higher moisture-resistance, UV-resistance, abrasion-resistance, chemical-resistance, and more durability, along with high temperature-resistance.
    • In comparison with polyurethane, polyurea coatings have higher chemical-resistance, durability, and moisture-resistance.
    • Polyurea coatings have significantly lesser curing time in comparison, owing to their advanced characteristics. As such, polyurea coatings are expected to witness a substantial rise in demand.
  • Increasing building & construction activities propelling market growth
    • Rapid population growth and increasing urbanization are pushing the growth of the building and construction industry, both, in developing and developed countries.
    • Increasing construction of residential as well as non-residential buildings is also boosting the demand for construction chemicals and materials.
    • Increasing construction activities are expected to drive the market for polyurea coatings during the forecast period.
