Water-Based Resins Market Challenges

High Cost and Low Performance of Water-based Resins Over Solvent-Based Resins

Solvent-based resins have one major advantage over water-based resins i.e. during the curing phase; they are less vulnerable to environmental conditions, such as temperature and humidity. Humidity can prevent the evaporation of water in a water-based coating, making it impractical in some climates. Hence, solvent-based resins are preferred for applications in humid environments that don't allow water-based resins to cure properly. Also, solvent-based resins are typically more resilient than water-based resins during the curing of the coating. Besides, the capital cost and fixed cost associated with changing the technology from solvent-based to water-based is high. Hence, many small-scale manufacturers in emerging regions are still using solvent-based resins. All these factors are restraining the water-based resins market growth during the forecast period.
