Solvent borne system type segment is estimated to account for more than 80% share of the wood preservative coatings market in North America
Future Market Insights (FMI) delivers key insights on the wood preservative coatings market in its latest report. According to the report, the global wood preservative coatings market is projected to expand at a healthy CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period in terms of revenue. Wood preservative coatings are the coatings applied on the wood for its interior as well as exterior protection. Interior protection includes protection from decay and insect/fungi/mold and exterior protection includes protection from harsh weathering condition. The choice of wood preservative coatings depend on the type of wood and upon the biological hazards to which the wood is to be exposed. In this report, wood preservative coatings are considered as a whole for both internal as well as for external protection of wood products. The wood preservative coatings are primarily based on two types of systems (solvent-borne and water-borne) which can also be called as technology. When a solvent is used to disperse a resin (binder) it is called as solvent-borne and when water is a dispersing medium for a resin (binder) it is called as water-borne.
Growth in wood preservative coatings industry is expected to be driven by a rebound in residential and construction industry, which in turn will benefit the key applications in which wood preservatives and coatings are used such as furniture, decking and siding. Further market growth for wood preservative coatings is anticipated to be restrained by increasing use of non-wood materials. Wood preservations and coatings product adoption varies depending on the application. Paint is a dominant product category in window, door and siding applications. Sealers and stains are more widely used on cabinets, decks, flooring and furniture. Similarly, oil-based wood preservative coatings including penta and creosote tend to be utilized in applications such as utility poles and railroad products, while water-based wood preservative coatings types such as ACQ and copper azole are used to treat wood intended for non-industrial and residential applications.
The rise in single family homebuilding in the U.S. is likely to foster growth in the consumption of wood preservative coatings in North America
The single family housing model accounts for a major share in the U.S. housing constructions. The growth in single family housing is becoming prevalent in the U.S over multi-family housing, thereby increasing the demand for lumber, which in turn drives the wood preservative coatings market. Wood is considered to be a least energy intensive building material as compared to other building materials such as plastic, steel, concrete etc., that require more energy to convert the raw materials to the end product. Also, factors such as the availability of wood at cheaper costs compared to its substitutes, wide range of types and sizes and high material stiffness of wood further fuel the consumption of wood preservative coatings.
Canada has around 30% of the world’s boreal forest that consists of trees such as larch, poplar, pine etc. Production of soft wood constitutes a major share in Canada, wherein the conversion of wood to various products is significant. According to the Canadian Wood Council, the forests in Canada are more protected than any other country in the world with independent certifications. Soft wood from Canada is exported to the U.S, representing one-third consumption. A large production of lumber necessitates the requirement of wood preservative coatings in order to prevent the wood from decaying due to environmental factors such as climatic conditions. The presence of robust forestry coupled with sustainable forestry management fuels the wood preservative coatings market in North America.
In April 2017, Trump administration announced to impose a tariff of 20% on the soft woods which enter the U.S state from Canada. Earlier, the trade between U.S and Canada were easy and not strict. In 2016, according to the U.S Commerce Dept., imports of the soft wood were about US$ 5.7 Bn. However, the recent change in the trade affair between the two countries is expected to impose barrier to the consumption of wood preservative coatings. The consumers in the states would have to pay more in building or renovating their homes, owing to this tariff imposition. Hence, it is expected that the wood preservative coatings market in North America is expected to grow at steady growth rate of 5.8% Y-o-Y till 2018, after which it is expected to fall.
The Energy and Environmental Design programme of the U.S. Green Building Council certifies wood preservative coating products that have low VOCs and are formaldehyde free. Also, the presence of toxins and carcinogenic ingredients in the products are verified and if present, restrictions are imposed. These stringent standards and regulations help in driving revenue growth of the wood preservative coatings market in North America.
The high solid technology involves less solvent use and more solids which is currently a prominent trend in the North American wood preservative coatings market. Also, the low odor and high durable coatings are more preferred by the consumers in North American wood preservative coatings market.
High solid technology and low odor and high durability products for interior wood preservative coatings is the new trend in North America
The trend of usage of water-borne coatings is significant in the North America wood preservative coatings market. An increasing awareness among consumers regarding the usage of eco-friendly coating products is prevailing. Also, UV wood preservative coatings are being used for industrial applications owing to the fast curing and high production efficiency offered by such coatings. Besides, high solid technology involving less solvent and more solids use is currently a prominent trend in the North America wood preservative coatings market. Also, low odor and high durable coatings are increasingly preferred by consumers in the North America wood preservative coatings market.
Insect repellent segment is estimated to hold major share both in terms of value and volume
Wood preservative coatings products are essential for increasing the product life span. Among various preservatives, insect repellent is estimated to hold major share both in terms of value and volume owing to its inherent advantages of protection from decay. The borates, azoles, pentachlorophenol etc. type of insect preservatives are more preferred by consumers. The market for stains and varnishes is quite fragmented with the presence of several domestic players. The demand for wood preservative coatings for protective as well as decorative purposes influences the stains and varnishes segments.
Segmentation analysis of the wood preservative coatings market
Volume share of water-borne wood preservative coatings is higher among all the regions. The increasing awareness about the benefits of water-borne coatings and strict environmental regulations is expected to boost the water-borne system type. However, currently the solvent borne system type dominates the wood preservative coatings market owing to its flexibility and technical advantages. The ongoing developments in the water-borne system type to increase its competitiveness is expected to drive the growth for water-borne system types. For instance, Dow Chemical Company developed a water-borne type new alkyd composition coatings with excellent performance. Some of the advantages of water-borne system type wood preservative coatings, helping to drive the market in the region are low toxicity and flammability, low HAPs and VOCs emissions, reductions in air emissions and excellent adhesion.
Increasing awareness about environmental concerns because of low quality and harmful additive in the wood preservative coatings, the market in matured markets such as North America and Eastern Europe are turning towards adoption of sustainable wood preservative coatings. UV- curing and water-based wood preservative coatings are trending in the regions with the companies such as BASF SE, AkzoNoble N.V, the Dow Chemical company increasing its penetration of eco-friendly product portfolio. The APAC wood preservatives coatings market is expected to represent significantly high incremental opportunity between 2017 and 2027. The market of wood preservatives coatings in APAC is expected to represent market value of US$ 7,439.2 Mn by end of 2027.
