Powder Coatings Market by Resin Type (Thermoset, Thermoplastic), by Coating Method (Electrostatic Spray, Fluidized Bed Spray), by End-use Industries, by Region (North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa, South America,) – Global Forecast (2019 to 2027)

Powder Coatings Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Analysis, Research


The Global Powder Coatings Market is expected to register a CAGR of over 5%, reaching a value of around USD 19 billion by the end of 2027.

Powder coating is a free-floating, dry powder applied to a substrate. It is a dry finishing process that uses powder to create a high-quality finish. According to the Powder Coating Institute, powder coating represents around 15% of the total industrial finishing market. These coatings exhibit enhanced durability, exceptional chip and abrasion resistance, and cost-efficiency.

The demand for powder coatings is increasing as it is available in a variety of colors, is versatile, and offers several advantages over the traditional painting process.


Market Driver:

  • Stringent Government Regulations to Reduce VOC Emissions

Rising concerns regarding environmental degradation have resulted in the implementation of various stringent regulations such as the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, National Volatile Organic Compound Emission Standards, and REACH regulations. This results in high demand for powder coatings as they contain no volatile organic compounds (VOC) and toxic heavy metals such as lead or chromium.

VOCs emitted react with other harmful particulates in the air to form smog, which when exposed or inhaled can cause irritation in eyes, nose & throat, as well as heart and respiratory problems such as asthma. Prolonged exposure to severe smog conditions may cause permanent damage to lung tissue and affect the immune system. 

Thus, the imposition of stringent regulations to curb VOC emissions is expected to drive the global powder coatings market.

  • Growing End-Use Industries   

Rapid industrialization and urbanization, as well as infrastructural development worldwide, is another key driver of the global powder coatings market. The automotive industry is the largest consumer of powder coatings due to its durability, scratch and corrosion resistance, faster cure rates, lower cure temperatures, improved appearance, and others. Powder coatings are used in wheels, grilles, bumpers, door handles, roof racks, exterior, and interior trim. It is also used for coating oil and fuel filters, battery trays, brake pads, shock absorbers, engine block casings, etc.

The total automotive production stood at 95.6 million in 2018, with a positive percentage change in emerging economies such as India, Thailand, Russia, and Indonesia.

Apart from this, the powder coatings are used in the appliances industry for coatings panels of ranges and refrigerators, dryer drums, air-conditioner cabinets, washer tops and lids, water heaters, dishwasher racks, freezer cabinets, and among many others.

Thus, rising demand from end-use industries is driving the global powder coatings market.

Market Restraint:

  • Fluctuating Cost of Resins Used in Powder Coatings

Resins used in powder coatings are produced from petroleum products. The supply-demand gap in crude oil results in price fluctuations of resins used in powder coatings.

Apart from this, high initial cost and high energy consumption are restraining market growth.
