Mold Release Coatings Market Segment Analysis –By Type
The semi-permanent segment held the largest share in the mold release coatings market in the year 2020. Mold release agents that are semi-permanent allow for several releases before reapplication. Semi-permanent mold release agents are designed to prevent mold build-up and contaminating transfer, hence extending the durability of the mold release coatings. Also, the increasing usage of semi-permanent mold release agents can also improve the cosmetic finish on many composite parts. Since semi-permanent mold release coating is exceptionally thin, durable, transparent, and abrasion-resistant. Thus, it forms a semi-permanent barrier on the mold surface, allowing for exceptional rubber or plastic component release. Thus, the rising demand for semi-permanent mold release coatings is estimated to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period.
Mold Release Coatings Market Segment Analysis –By Application
Concrete segment held the largest share in the mold release coatings market in the year 2020. Mold release coatings are used in concrete molds to lessen the adherence of freshly deposited concrete, resulting in fewer broken blocks and reduced concrete waste, as well as increased efficiency and cheaper production costs. Increasing usage of mold release coatings to keep freshly lay concrete away from sticking to a forming surface, such as plywood, steel, or aluminum is estimated to drive the market growth. Reactive release agents react with the concrete to create soapy films that hinder adhesion to the mold, whereas barrier release agents build a physical barrier between the mold and the concrete. Since water-based formulations are now being used for environmental benefits as the industry strives toward greener technologies. Thus, it is anticipated that the rising demand for water-based mold release coatings in concrete mold would further drive the market growth.
Mold Release Coatings Market Segment Analysis –By End Use Industry
Building and construction segment has dominated the market for the mold release coatings market in 2020 and is growing at a CAGR of 5.9% during 2021-2026. Mold Release
Coatings are materials that regulate heat transfer, generally in buildings or
multi-wheelers, through windows or any other openings. They boost summer
cooling efficiency and winter heating efficiency in buildings and vehicles,
thus saving energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This results in lower
energy bills for longer periods and regulated temperature management. Increasing investment in infrastructure and construction in emerging
economies has an enormous demand for prefabricated concrete blocks and is
expected to increase further in the near future, which in turn is also expected
to raise the demand for mold release coatings. Mold release coatings are used in the building and construction industry to create, precast concrete mold that can be
used in various construction activities, such as bridges, roads, houses,
footpaths, and various other structures. Thus, the above factors are likely to
increase the demand for mold release coatings in the forecast period.
Mold Release Coatings Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
Asia Pacific region dominated the mold release coatings market with 47.7% in the year 2020. In the Asia Pacific region, China is the largest car producer. The automotive sector of the country has influenced product growth, with the country concentrating on exporting goods, ensuring fuel efficiency, and minimizing emissions (owing to growing environmental concerns due to mounting pollution in the country). Moreover, due to the help of the 'Made in China 2025' initiative to upgrade the current low-cost mass production to higher value-added advanced manufacturing, production was hit 30 million units in 2020. Additionally, the design and construction is another main end-user field in the country for mold release coatings. Despite attempts to rebalance its economy to a more service-oriented base, China has major construction plans underway, including providing for the migration of 250 million people to its megacities in the next ten years. For instance, in April 2019, the Chinese government spent about US$ 72 billion on construction in the region. Thus, with the rising growth of the end-use industries, the market for mold release coatings is also anticipated to rise over the forecast period.
