Argentina Architectural Coatings Market Overview
The Argentina Architectural Coatings
market size is estimated to reach a value of US$648.8 million by the end of 2027 after growing at a CAGR of around 4.5% during the forecast
period 2022-2027. Architectural coatings are the types of coatings used
to coat homes and buildings, such as paints, powder and others. The majority of
architectural coatings are custom-made for a specific use, such as roof coatings,
interior and external wall painting and floor coatings. Infrastructure can
benefit from these coatings in terms of protection, durability and decoration. These architectural
coatings include polyvinylidene fluoride, polytetrafluoroethylene,
polyurethane, polyester and urethane. The Argentina architectural coatings
market is expanding rapidly due to increased applications, technical
improvements and rising demand in the country. Economic expansion, increased
infrastructure investment, stringent environmental regulations, rising
purchasing power and rising demand for green and ecologically friendly coatings
are all driving the market growth of Argentina’s architectural coatings. The
global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic had a major influence on the Argentina architectural coatings market size in 2020. Numerous industry
operations have been temporarily halted or are functioning with fewer staff as a result of regulatory lockdowns and imposed limits. They have a significant negative impact on the revenue
growth of the Argentina Architectural Coatings industry.

Argentina Architectural Coatings Market Segment Analysis – by Resin
The alkyd segment held a significant portion of the Argentina Architectural Coatings market share in 2021 and is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period 2022-2027. The reason behind its popularity is the extensive characteristics provided by alkyd when compare to other material types such as epoxy, acrylics, polyester, polyurethane, polyvinylidene fluoride, polytetrafluoroethylene and others. The alkyd coatings industry is driven by low alkyd resin costs, qualities such as good adhesion, weathering, high, dry temperatures, quick-drying and many others, as well as known end-user utility. Significant potential in the industry includes increased investment in the industrial sector and a desire for special-purpose coatings, which enhance Argentina Architectural Coatings market size.
Argentina Architectural Coatings Market Segment Analysis – by Formulation
The water-based segment held the
largest share in the Argentina Architectural Coatings market share in 2021 and
is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period 2022-2027. The
market demand for water-borne coatings is increasing due to their low VOC
emissions and environmentally friendly characteristics. Furthermore, the
growing use of water-soluble paints in the building and construction sector,
owing to their superior corrosion protection, polytetrafluoroethylene coating
and high gloss qualities, is driving the market. According to the Synthetic Indicator of Construction Activity (ISAC), the construction industry remained
robust in 2021 overall, with the average ISAC rising by 31%, according to
statistics closely related to GDP value add construction data. As
a result, the demand for the water-based formulation is rising in the buildings
& construction industries, thereby driving the segment growth.
Argentina Architectural Coatings Market Segment Analysis – by End-use Industry
The Commercial segment held a significant share in the Argentina Architectural Coatings market share in 2021 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Due to a robust economy and solid market fundamentals for commercial real estate, as well as an increase in federal and state financing for public works and institutional buildings, the construction industry in Argentina expanded significantly. Argentina has proposed a commercial building proposal of $428 million. The plan includes a total investment of 29 billion pesos in the construction of 5,500 dwellings and the renovation of 42,900 units, as well as the distribution of 204,000 microloans for the purchase of materials and the establishment of 1,250 health centers around the country. As part of the Plan Argentina Hace, the Ministry of Public Works said in January 2022 that it would invest ARS10.6 trillion ($91 billion) to complete 3,131 new infrastructure works and projects around the country. 434 projects had been finished by January 2022, 1,192 were in the works and 1,505 were in the planning stages. With the rise in commercial projects across Argentina, the demand for Architectural Coatings is anticipated to rise for various applications, which is projected to boost the market growth in the commercial industry during the forecast period.
Argentina Architectural Coatings Market Drivers
Government Increasing Green Initiatives:
Architectural Coatings use eco-friendly construction materials that boost energy efficiency and have a lower impact on human health and the environment. Government support for the adoption of environment-friendly green coatings, as well as expanding application areas for nano-coatings and the introduction of fluoropolymer coatings, would pave the way for new prospects in the architectural coatings market. Argentina is expected to experience steady growth with green buildings over the next few years, based on the fast rise of green certifications and the introduction of EDGE software in the market. For instance, Argentina has a Green Building Council that is actively pursuing building certifications in the country. Over 300 projects have been certified or registered across the country. According to the International Finance Corporation, in 2017, Argentina boasted 357 published green building activities, including certifications and registrations. Such government initiatives are set to increase the demand for the Architectural Coatings market in Argentina.
Bolstering Growth of the Residential Industry:
Architectural Coatings have seen a huge increase in their use and
application in residential areas.
The recent technical developments like polytetrafluoroethylene coating and nanostructured coatings open up new uses by having
antibacterial, self-cleaning and anti-corrosive qualities. Additionally,
individuals are remodeling their homes in accordance with trends to improve
their visual appeal of the same.
Due to these comprehensive qualities and urbanization in Argentina, the market
for Argentina architectural coatings for the residential industry is growing.
For instance, the Argentina government presents a US$428 million housing construction
plan. According to the National
Institute of Statistics and Censuses (INDEC), the value added by the residential industry increased by 37.1 percent in
the first three quarters of 2021. With flourishing demand in the
residential industry, the Argentina Architectural Coatings industry is growing rapidly.
Argentina Architectural Coatings Market Challenge
Application Defect Susceptibility:
Coatings have many of the same flaws as other coatings when used in the same
way. Blistering, flaking and chalking, discoloration and staining and surface
imperfection are all prevalent concerns. Blistering is caused by a localized
loss of adhesion and lifting of the paint film from the underlying surface in
architectural coatings. When solvent gas develops on a sunny facade, blistering
can occur in new paint coats. Furthermore, if the enclosure material is not
completely dry, the moisture can cause scorching. Flaking and chalking are
caused by dissolving paint, as opposed to efflorescence or mottling, which are
white, crusty mineral salt deposits that have leached from the masonry and
concrete behind the paint. Thus,
the market's expansion might get hampered by the application defects susceptibility.
