- August 2018 – The Road Transport and Highway Ministry has proposed that all automobile manufacturers must now use 70% galvanized steel for car body panels for all vehicles sold in India. This regulation comes under corrosion prevention rule for cars manufactured in India. This compels manufacturers to extensively use metal coating procedure as such coating improves the safety of the structure and also results in less corrosion.
Polyols Market- Overview
Polyols Market Growth is predicted to soar high at an exceptional CAGR during the forecast period (2018-2023), as reported by Market Research Future (MRFR).
Metal coating protects an unprotected metal from rusting and corroding due to environmental exposure. Polyols are usually made from polymers, such as epoxy, polyurethane, and moisture cure urethane. The metal coating makes the metal more durable by providing innovative applications, smooth surface, and green benefits and also offers cost benefits.
Polyols Market Drivers and Restraints
There is an increase in the application of Polyols owing to the rapidly growing industrialization and urbanization, which is the major factor in the growth of the global Polyols market. Also, the increase in infrastructure development and spending, especially for commercial and residential sectors has augmented the demand for the end products of coated metals. This factor drives the growth of the global metal coating market. The benefits offered by Polyols such as increased durability, corrosion resistance, and improved texture, accelerates the demand and fuels the growth of the global metal coating market.
Moreover, thriving electrical and electronics industry and emergence of internet of things (IoT) and automation are likely to offer lucrative opportunities to the global Polyols market. Growing consumer preference for built-in functions in the personal devices is touted to add ammunition to the market growth in coming years.
However, the strict rules and regulations of various government bodies pertaining to environment protection may hamper the growth of the global metal coating market. On the other hand, benefits offered by Polyols such as increased durability, corrosion resistance, and improved texture, highlight the appeal of Polyols and are expected to further fuel the growth of the global metal coating market in the foreseeable future.
The global Polyols market is segmented into form, method, resin type and end-use industry.
Form-wise, the market is segmented into liquid and powder coatings. The liquid coatings are sub-segmented into water based and solvent based. The market for powder coating has grown significantly due to increasing technological advancements and growing demand from applications such as architectural; appliances; automotive; furniture; agriculture, construction, and earthmoving equipment (ACE).
By method, the market is segmented into electroplating, electroforming, galvanizing, and anodizing. Electroplating segment is growing at a phenomenal rate due to surging demand for automobiles, consumer goods, and aircraft.
By resin type, the market is segmented into polyester, acrylics, epoxy, polyurethane, fluoropolymer, plastisol, and others. The soaring popularity of polyester resins refers to its rising use as a thermosetting system in a variety of applications. This is accentuated by the use of fillers, reinforcements, and additives to enhance their physical and chemical properties.
By end-use industry, the global market is segmented into construction, automotive, aviation, electrical & electronics, marine, oil & gas, and others. The construction industry is in constant need for coatings that can impart anticorrosion properties, as the steel structures are in constant threat of corrosion and need protection.
Based on region, the Polyols market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa.
APAC is touted to be the fastest growing region in the global Polyols market. This can be attributed to the expanding construction industry and rising investments in the infrastructure activities by the government. Initiatives taken by the government in India such as the development of smart cities and construction of Navi Mumbai International Airport among others are envisaged to augment the market growth. Apart from this, rapidly expanding automotive industry in the developing economies as a result of increased spending on automobiles is triggering the demand for Polyols in the region.
North America is another key region in the global Polyols market on account of the expanding aviation industry. Increasing aircraft production to cater to the surging demand for automobiles from the developing regions has made a vast difference in the market growth. The product consumption is burgeoning in the electrical and electronics industry with increasing spending on wireless speakers and home appliances. All these factors have led to tremendous market performance in the region.
Europe is projected to manifest into a formidable market during the review period because of the reviving automotive industry, especially in France, Germany, and Russia. Flourishing construction industry coupled with rising investment on the remodeling of houses and commercial buildings is known to be the major driver of the market growth in Europe.
Latin America, on the other hand, is exhibiting substantial market growth with growing construction and automotive industry in Brazil, Argentina, and Colombia. Whereas, the Middle East & Africa is contemplated to note a considerable growth in the metal coating market owing to rising construction activities mainly in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
