Owing to its superior properties of wear & tear, prevention from abrasion, scratch resistance, and ease of maintenance with excellent aesthetics, concrete materials coatings is likely to witness a high demand in manufacturing projects. In 2016, concrete floor coating materials contributed to more than 85% of the overall industrial floor coatings market share.
Demand for bio-based industrial floor coatings to drive the future market trends
The global industrial floor coatings market is witnessing a paradigm shift toward environment-friendly floor coatings. Rising concerns over the fluctuating crude oil prices and the growing dependency on fossil fuel have stimulated the paints & coating industry to strive for sustainability. Growing consumer awareness regarding the impact of synthetic resin on the environment has created huge scope for the industry players to focus on the development of bio-based coatings. Bio based floor coatings are derived from natural sources such as soybean oil, succinic acid, sunflower oil, rapeseed oil, and castor oil. The key industrial floor coatings market players are joining forces with biotechnology firms to synergize their domains and address the demand for bio-based products. For instance, in 2016, Arkema a leading company in specialty chemicals, has partnered with several industrial coatings companies to develop bio-based materials to meet the latest industry demand and shifting consumer trends. Following this collaboration, in 2017, Bostik, a subsidiary of Arkema acquired CMP specialty products, a flooring and floor preparation unit of U.S. based specialist CGM. The acquisition gave Bostik a fair chance to further exploit the U.S. construction market and provide better and innovative flooring solutions to its customers.
In light of this dynamic scenario, industrial floor coatings market is certainly liable tourish over the coming years with a projected global demand of 1,300 kilo tons by 2024. Some of the other renowned names in industrial floor coatings industry include Dow Chemical, Sherwin-Williams, Akzo Nobel, BASF, Asian Paints, PPG Industries, Tambour, 3M, Kansai Paint Co., Ltd, and Milliken & Company.
