The global UV Coatings Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 5911.32 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.5% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
Waterborne UV coatings are gaining popularity across industries due to their eco-friendly attributes. These coatings emit lower volatile organic compound (VOC) levels as compared to conventional solvent-borne UV coatings. They have low odor and are safe for operators as well as the environment. The stringent government regulations regarding VOC emissions are propelling the demand for waterborne UV coatings. These coatings offer performance similar to solvent-borne UV coatings and find wide usage in wood coatings, plastic coatings, and paper coating applications. Hence, the growth in waterborne UV coatings will be one of the defining trends in the market over the forecast period.
Threat of new entrants: The threat of new entrants in the UV coatings value market is moderate as it requires high initial investments to establish manufacturing facilities. However, there are low costs associated with scaled production.
Bargaining power of buyers: The bargaining power of buyers is moderate due to the availability of substitutes. However, buyers prefer brands that provide superior film protection and durable finishes.
Bargaining power of suppliers: The bargaining power of suppliers is low owing to the presence of numerous raw material suppliers and lack of product differentiation.
Threat of new substitutes: The threat of new substitutes is moderate as alternative technologies like powder coatings are gaining popularity. However, UV coatings have better curing properties.
Competitive rivalry: The competitive rivalry is high among key players to gain market share through innovative product offerings, partnerships, and acquisitions.
