Report Code: CMR 41903 Report Format: PDF + Excel

Global Water-based Alkyd Coatings Market Overview

Global Water-based Alkyd Coatings Market size is forecast to reach US$10.1 billion by 2027, after growing at a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Global water-based alkyd coatings use water as a solvent to disperse a resin-like Acrylic, Polyurethane, Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF), Polyvinylidene dichloride, and others, thus making these coatings eco-friendly and easy to apply. In most cases, water-based alkyd coatings contain up to 80% water with small quantities of other solvents, such as glycol ethers. These coatings are also known to be environment-friendly as US and European regulations require waterborne coatings to have a VOC content of fewer than 3.5 pounds per gallon of water. Increasing urbanization for leading a better life increases the number of housing construction. Resulting in the development of affordable housing and infrastructure by the construction industry. This is driving the demand for various wood, industrial, and architectural coatings materials used in the construction of residential as well as commercial complexes. For instance, according to the National Federation of Beverages (FNB), France has aimed to put 15-20% share of wood for new building construction projects by 2030 which currently is 8%. Thus, significantly increasing the demand for global water-based alkyd coatings in the building and construction sector.


COVID-19 wreaked havoc on the building and construction industries, putting the global water-based alkyd coatings in jeopardy. COVID-19 has had economic impacts on the building and construction and furniture sector related to worker well-being and availability the impact of reduced incomes. However, the effect of increased working from home on household purchases of certain wood products, such as office furniture and wood for do-it-yourself projects and others. For instance, new German housing starts were projected at 204,300 units in 2020 and 206,300 units in 2021. However, due to COVID-19, this was decreased by 6.7%. The abrupt decrease in immigration due to the pandemic is projected to have long-term implications for the building houses. Thus, the market of global water-based alkyd coatings was partially affected during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.

Global Water-based Alkyd Coatings Market Segment Analysis - By Product Type

Water-Soluble paints segment held the largest share in the global water-based alkyd coatings market and will grow at a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period 2022-2027. It contains small clusters of insoluble resin particles that are suspended in water using mechanical agitation. Small quantities of organic solvents are used as coalescing agents, which evaporate on drying. The resins used in these types of dispersion paints include vinyl propionate copolymers, vinyl acetate copolymers, acrylate-methacrylate copolymers, and styrene-butadiene copolymers and polymers. Colloidal dispersions are used mainly to coat porous materials. When solvent-borne is used for varnishing a can, it produces around 55% to 60% solvent content, with waterborne it brings it down to 14%, a major reduction. It is Low toxicity and flammability due to low VOC levels and HAP emissions and help reducing air emissions. The industries for instance, in 2020 Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company (PPG) launched Low-VOC water soluble paints system for China Refinish Market. On the other hand, in 2020 Axalta expands plant for water-borne coatings in Jiading, Shanghai, China. Such initiatives all over is highly enhancing the Global water-based alkyd coatings market 

Global Water-based Alkyd Coatings Market Segment Analysis - By End-Use Industry

Currently, the furniture market in France is flourishing. France marked third place in Europe and seventh in the furniture market globally. Thus, it shows the high potential growth other f water-based alkyd coatings market 

Implementation of Sustainability Law for Wood Materials in Building & Construction Sector

Water-based Alkyd coatings are widely used in wood-based products and with the increased focus on wood-based products and wood as a raw material in building houses due to the imposition of sustainability law especially in European countries by the European Government, which ensures that 50% of all the new buildings construction should be wood from 2022 in most of the European countries. The France government had already pledged the sustainable city plan where the use of natural materials such as wood, straw and hemp, and any buildings higher than eight-story built for the 2024 Paris Olympics must be made entirely of timber to showcase France's low-carbon ambitions in the lead-up to the 2024 Summer Olympics and Paralympics in Paris. According to Statistisches Bundesamt, in 2021, the total permits for building construction in Germany is 151,657, which is 3.5% growth compared to the previous year. Since wood would be highly used in the construction process of all the new buildings as per the law, it anticipates the growth of wood coatings market in the forecast period. Due to the rise in urbanization and increase in demand for wood in building new residence and furniture, the wood coating market has witnessed certain growth alongside as wood coatings are highly use in protecting the woods from moisture and UV damages and giving it an aesthetic look and also contains low volatile organic compound. The European government aim to invest US$1.15 trillion over the period of 2021-2030 for the European Green Deal sustainability law imposed in Germany and France and some other major European countries. The law ensures the use of wood in construction of new building or reconstruction of old buildings, accumulating the market growth of global water-based alkyd coatings in the forecast period. 

Global Water-based Alkyd Coatings Market Challenges

Fluctuation in raw material prices

Manufacturers are functioning hard to maintain challenging market position along with the maintenance of customers by executing a low-cost strategy for water-based alkyd coatings, hence compromising on their profit margins. Besides, increased raw material prices have become a critical issue for manufacturers of wood coatings. Rising prices of flaxseed oil, dammar gum, and a highly pure nontoxic is aliphatic solvent, are hampering the enhancement of all the concerned businesses in the water-based alkyd coatings market. According to the Department of Commerce, prices of coating oils have risen from 2018 to 2021 from 2 to 4% higher than the average rates. Factors that will be watched critically in the months ahead are the domestic and export demand. According to the Centre for Sustainable Crop Management, the market price for flaxseed in the European region has ranged from US$0.09 to US$0.14 per pound. At $0.10 per pound, gross income would be a modest US$120 to US$140. Therefore, the volatility in the prices of raw materials might hinder the market growth of water-based alkyd coatings in the forecast period
