Leather finishing applications may observe significant gains and register over 35 kilo tons by 2023. Nitrocellulose-based paints are preferred as they dry quickly, are easy to apply, compatible with a wide range of additives, leave no residue upon drying, have a good glossy finish, and good adhesion properties. These properties make it suitable for furniture coating applications.

Automotive paint application may surpass USD 170 million in revenue by 2023 with over 5.5% CAGR by 2023. Automobile production growth coupled with favorable incentive policies by regional governments in China, Thailand, Indonesia and India may favor product demand for automotive applications.

Companies present across the value chain signify low level of complete integration. Companies which are backward integrated have an added competitive advantage over other industry participants as they are able to deliver cost effective products and have a better grasp over their downstream business.

Distributors and suppliers play an important role in the value chain and form an important link between the manufacturers and end-use industries. The manufacturers are much dependent upon distributors & suppliers for marketing products.

This substance is considered as a flammable solid and thus is governed by transportation and packaging regulations. Stringent regulations by FDA and EU which govern food contact applications for paints used in packing may impact overall industry profitability and affect nitrocellulose market price trend.
