Current challenges in Epoxy Resins Paints Market
The epoxy resins paints market is facing challenges due to rising environmental regulations regarding the usage of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in paints and coatings. Stringent VOC norms by regulatory bodies like REACH and EPA have restricted the use of solvent-based epoxy resins paints. Water-borne and powder coating technologies are increasingly being adopted as alternatives but require huge investments and operational changes. Fluctuating prices of crude oil, a key raw material, also impact the stability and affordability of epoxy resins paints.
Strength: Excellent chemical and corrosion resistance along with good electrical insulation properties makes epoxy resins suitable for flooring, industrial & protective coatings. Weakness: Limited by temperature and humidity conditions during application. Higher cost than alternatives. Opportunity: Growing infrastructure development and construction industries in emerging nations driving the demand. Threats: Strict environmental regulations limiting VOCs. Easy availability of substitutes like polyurethanes poses competition.
Geographical regions of concentration
The Asia Pacific region dominates the epoxy resins paints market in terms of value share attributed to being a global manufacturing hub along with rapid infrastructural and industrial development. China alone accounts for over 35% of the regional market. North America and Western Europe are other major consumers owing to large paints and coatings industries and renovation activities.
Fastest growing region
Central and Eastern European countries are expected to be the fastest growing regional market for epoxy resins paints over the forecast period. After experiencing economic downturns, the construction sectors in nations such as Poland, Czech Republic, and Hungary are witnessing a resurgence in activities boosting the demand for protective, floor and industrial coatings made from epoxy resins. Additionally, infrastructure projects under China’s Belt and Road Initiative would further accelerate the CEE region’s market growth.
