Anti-foaming is a process of reducing or preventing foam formation on paint films or coatings. Wetting and dispersion provide stabilization to films by using deflocculating effect. Rheology modification relates to the change in the structure or flow of materials due to external stress to improve the thickness and viscosity of coated surfaces. Biocides prevent paint films from microbial damage, including fungal and algae growth caused due to humid surroundings or contamination. Impact modification is mainly used for sheets, packaging films, and others to prevent deformation of surface. Other functions of these additives include drying, surface modification, leveling, and anti-settling, anti-sagging, and other properties.

Segment Review:

Coatings consist of different elements such as pigments, binder, additives, mixtures, and others that enhance the functioning of the coatings. Different formulations of coating are present for its applications, namely water-borne coatings, solvent-borne coatings, powder coatings, radiation curable coatings, and solvent less coatings.

Water-borne coatings contain water as liquefying agents to dissolve all the elements for coating. It is used for closed or compact areas and does not cause any harmful emissions. In solvent-borne coatings, different organic solvents such as polyurethanes, enamels, and others are present that act as liquefying agent. These coatings are hazardous in nature due to emission of harmful solvents or volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Powder-borne coatings involve electrostatic attraction to apply paints and provide proper coating finish with desirable thickness, increased coating durability, and flexibility. Radiation curable coatings form the most emerging technology in the coating additives market, which uses ultraviolet (UV), visible light or low energy electrons for curing coating or films. Solvent less coatings are premium coatings used mainly in structural and floor coatings. They do not contain any solvent for liquefying process and provides rapid curing at low temperature with zero emission. These different types of coatings require different formulation of coating additives as per the requirements from various end user industries such as automotive, industrial, architectural, wood & furniture, and others.

The growth in awareness regarding environmental concerns and government regulations to minimize the use of VOCs in coatings is the major factor that drives the growth of water borne coatings in the coating additives market. End users such as automotive, industrial, wood & furniture, and others focus on water borne coatings to reduce the expenditure or fines related to environmental compliance advising or exceeding VOCs level. Technological advancement in manufacturing areas with a focus on expansion of its application such as chemical resistance, water resistance, flexibility, and others fulfilling government regulations, can be a growth opportunity for water borne coatings market.

LAMEA Review

In August 2016, Brazil offered various investment opportunities to Qatar for development in various key sectors such as automotive, real estate, and agribusiness to enhance the business growth potential. Such developments have led to increased requirement of coatings such as powder coatings, waterborne coatings, radiation curable coatings, solvent less coatings in automotive, and architectural industry along with improved coating properties such as anti-foaming, corrosion resistance, mechanical strength, and others. This will require more use of coating additives to perform more efficiently, which fuels the coating additives market in LAMEA region.

UAE has signed tariff-free agreements with countries in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa to promote manufacturers to set up factories in Egypt to tap the lucrative market, which has nearly 1.6 billion consumers. The African consumer appliances market is driven by growth in demand for technology-based products, which drives the coating additives market in this region during the forecast period.
