the growth in demand for protective coatings and special coatings in the United States is mainly driven by the development of industrial construction industry and the growth of federal highway maintenance expenditure. In 2015, as the oil price reached the low point for many years, the growth of related coating consumption was restrained, and it was reflected in many protective coatings and special coatings markets, especially the marine coatings applied to offshore drilling platforms
in addition, the automotive repair industry also accounts for a large share of the market demand for protective coatings and special coatings. However, due to the fact that automotive OEM coatings are becoming more durable and the traffic accident rate continues to decline, the growth of this coating consumption field has been restrained
on December 4, 2015, Obama signed the repair of American ground transportation act (fast act), thereby increasing the country's demand for road and Bridge coatings. In addition, the recent legislative efforts of the United States to solve the problems caused by more and more structurally defective bridges will also promote the demand for road and Bridge coatings during the research and development of electronic products
according to the latest research results of Freedonia group, an industry research company of Cleveland in the United States, although historically, solvent-based coatings in the United States should ensure the spacing and direction between the main body and the dynamometer when dispensing protective coatings, and the sealing machine in China can become the world's leading industry, water-based coatings will rank first in this field before 2020, Beyond solvent based coatings to become the most important variety
this trend change is mainly due to the further impact of regulatory policies and regulations on the protective coating and professional coating market. The traditional organic solvents will gradually lose their advantages in the coating formula, and then tend to use water-based coatings, high solid coatings and other coating products with low or no VOC emission characteristics. This trend is emerging in the U.S. protective coatings and special coatings market
freedonia predicts that in the U.S. protective coatings and special coatings market, the demand for water-based coatings products will increase at an annual rate of 2.5% by 2020, and will reach 85million gallons by then, Replace solvent based coatings and become the market leader "In hindsight, the leader.
in the automotive touch up paint market, the substitution trend of water-based coatings is the most important. Solvent based coatings have been widely used in this field in history. At present, the end users of automotive touch up paint have increasingly tended to use water-based coatings, because compared with solvent based coatings, the latter has advantages in color matching ability and other properties.
in addition, water-based coatings have also gained a foothold in the marine paint market, because Some global treaties and American regulations have set strict limits on harmful emissions from marine coatings. For the main base materials (metals) used in shipbuilding, water-based coatings can provide good adhesion, and have been able to withstand the harsh environment faced by climate, chemicals and other ships
at present, the market value of protective coatings and special coatings in the United States is about US $4.9 billion. The main application fields include industrial maintenance, automobile repair, marine equipment, roads and bridges, and other infrastructure protection and special professional markets. The suppliers of related products mainly include PPG, Sherwin Williams, Valspar, RPM, axalta, AkzoNobel, BASF, Ennis flint, etc
