"Water-borne formulation for coating additives is expected to dominate the market"
Water-borne formulation is expected to be at the forefront of the coating additives market. The stringent environmental regulations in North America and Europe will drive the demand for water-borne formulations in architectural application due to presence of non-hazardous chemicals. With the tightening of regulations over VOC content, the formulators are forced to either use additives that help in reducing the VOC content or shift to water-borne formulation. However, solvent-borne formulation is also expected to show moderate growth rate due to its use in Asia-Pacific due to less stringent environmental regulations.

Coating additives market to be dominated by architectural application between 2016 and 2021
The major applications for coating additives are architectural, automotive, industrial, and wood & furniture. Architectural application accounted for the largest share of the coating additives market. The growing construction sector globally will drive the demand for coating additives, which are widely used in paints and coatings for protection of various materials under extreme conditions. The ability of the additives to provide protection from moisture, microbial growth, heat, and chemical factors makes it ideal for protection. Coating additives are extensively used in formulations for underground pipes, civil engineering projects, towers, offshore structures, and chemical industries. The heat-resistant property of some coating additives makes them important in electrical and electronic applications; and its use in these applications is expected to increase in the future.

The value chain of coating additives include raw material manufacturers such as SABIC (Saudi Arabia), Allnex (Belgium), ExxonMobil (U.S.). Additives are manufactured by various players in the industry such as BYK-Chemie (Germany), BASF (Germany), AkzoNobel N.V. (Netherlands), Arkema (France), and Evonik Industries (Germany). The manufactured products are then used by the formulators or paint/coating manufacturers to achieve desired property for their products. Thus, the formulators develop, manufacture, and package the finished product, which is then distributed to its end-use application through logistics service providers. Some of the major paints/coatings manufacturers are DuPont (U.S.), Sherwin-Williams (U.S.), and The DOW Chemical Company (U.S.). Companies such as Nexeo Solutions (U.S.), Univar (U.S.), DKSH (Switzerland), Brenntag Group (Germany), and Connell Brothers (U.S.) have their presence and warehouses covering a wide region across the globe, which has helped them in becoming the key players in marketing and distribution of chemicals.
