By Type - Segment Analysis
Primary paint drier held the largest share in the paint driers market in 2019. Primary paint drier act as oxidation catalysts, as their metal soaps exhibit more than one oxidation state. Primary paint driers catalyze cross linking of the resin and in the process hydroxyl, carbonyl and carboxylic groups are formed. The common types of primary paint drier are Cobalt, Manganese, Iron and Vanadium. Cobalt is the most commonly used primary drier and the most active. It produces less discoloration in wet paint and upon ageing of dried paint. Manganese is less commonly used because of the dark brown color of Mn3+ which can discolor paint films and is also seen as less effective than Cobalt. Through paint driers is held the second largest share in the paint driers market. Through paint driers ensure that a paint dries at a uniform rate throughout the body of the film. Primary paint driers without the presence of through driers would mainly dry the surface of the film, whilst the paint underneath would remain wet. Through paint driers are used to ensure that the paint dries at a uniform rate throughout the body of the film not just at the surface. The common types of through paint driers are Lead, Zirconium, Lithium and other. Lead is the most commonly used drier until the toxicity of lead became a major concern. Lead is still an effective drier, technically and on a cost basis. Zirconium is not as effective as lead but is less toxic and was the first identified alternative to lead. Zirconium has replaced lead in a number of countries.
By Product Type - Segment Analysis
Oil paint drier held the largest share in the paint driers market in 2019. An oil paint drier is also known as siccative. Oil paint drier is a coordination compound that accelerates the hardening of drying oils. The oil paint driers promote the free-radical autoxidation of the oils with air. Oil paint driers agents are derived from ions of cobalt, manganese, and iron. It is prepared as a "salts" of lipophilic carboxylic acids such as naphthenic acids, in order to give them a soap-like chemical formula and make them oil-soluble. Liquid paint driers is held the second largest share in the paint driers market.
By Application - Segment Analysis
Interior wall & celling application held the largest share in the paint driers market in 2019. Interior paint drying is done to increase the visual appeal and smoothness of wall surface and celling. Distemper is common type of paint drier used in interior wall and ceiling for protecting and decorating brick wall, concrete and plastered surface. Variety of distemper are available in the market. Such as acrylic distemper, dry distemper and other. Acrylic distemper is washable and can be applied on wall and asbestos. Wooden surface is second largest share in the paint driers market. Paint driers are used on wooden surface to solidify the paint. It is used by furniture industry. Furniture is used in laboratories, spa, office, clean room, restaurants, camping, bedroom, outdoor, library, parks, stores, and many more places. The global furniture industry is driving the market of paint driers. The increase in disposable income has influenced the individual to spend more on comfortable lifestyle, this in turn is expected to provide growth opportunities for the furniture industry. The rise of furniture industry will anticipated the growth of paint driers market near future.
By End user - Segment Analysis
The construction sector has been the primary market for paint driers market in 2019 growing at CAGR of 8%. Many of the commercial buildings in the United States and China are incorporating paint driers to provide an easy adjustment of paint in the buildings as per requirement. The growth of paint driers can be taken as directly proportional to the growth of construction industry. By 2020, construction output is estimated to grow by 70% to $12.7 trillion and will account for 14.6% of the world output with some of the larger emerging markets such as China, India, Russia, Brazil and Poland driving growth, along with U.S. Global GDP growth of 3.5% and 3.6% is expected in 2017 and 2018 respectively however the meteoric growth that outpaces global GDP will be concentrated in countries like China, India and U.S. India will overtake Japan as the third-largest construction market with annual growth averaging 7.4% annually in construction.
