Germany, France and UK Sealants Market Challenges

  • Strict environmental laws

Europe is strictly regulated by various environmental laws in relation to the production of chemical and petro-based products in the region. Agencies such as the European Commission (EC) govern the manufacturing and production of solvent-based products in these regions. Production of sealants releases poisonous compounds in the environment which is not good for the ecosystem. Therefore, it can attract legal actions, if not done in limit and properly.   Furthermore, according to Ministry of Germany, a right to extract mineral resources and to acquire ownership of them takes the form of a mining concession, either as a mining permit (Bewilligung) or as the grant of a mining property (Berwerkseigentum). However, the mining permit or grant of a mining property does not permit actual extraction itself, which requires further approval of a framework operating plan through a special approval instrument under the Federal Mining Act. The approval of operating plans is also carried out in various stages with different contents and degrees of legal procedures. The operating plan must be drawn up by the mining company and submitted to the competent authority. The obligations are very extensive and include accompanying and secondary activities. This is further affecting the production capacities of manufacturers in the European regions. This is majorly restricting the growth of the Germany, France and UK Sealants Market.
