Report Description

UV Coatings Market
UV Coatings Market

The global UV coatings market is likely to showcase a growth of around 9% during the forecast period. Currently, the market for UV coating is in the developing stage when compared with the paints & coatings industry as a whole. Lack of awareness about the benefits of UV coating and high cost compared to other substitutes are some of the key factors which are resisting the market growth. However, it is expected that during the foreseeable future, the consumption of UV coating grows significantly as consumers are looking for coating products that help in improving operational productivity while at the same time being easy to use. UV coating has the ability to offer both advantages. UV technology products cure almost instantaneously. Just after curing, coated substrates can immediately be handled, packaged, and stored. Short cure times and lines drastically increase speed and the customer’s productivity compared to conventional paint.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst formulation, solvent-based UV coating held a prominent share in the market in 2020”

Based on the formulation, the market is categorized into water-based and solvent-based UV coating. Of both, solvent-based accounted for a significant share in 2020. This can be ascribed to its low cost while simultaneously offering a good level of surface finish. However, as the world is looking toward sustainability, it is expected that the demand for water-based UV coating would grow significantly during the forecast period.

“Amongst application, fertilizers accounted for a dominant share in 2020”

Based on application, the market is categorized into industrial coatings, electronics, and graphic arts. Among these, the industrial coatings segment held the prominent market share owing to the large application area including wood coating and plastic coating. Further, emerging areas such as electric vehicles are likely to fuel segmental growth during the foreseeable future.

“Asia-Pacific is likely to showcase significant growth during the forecast period”

For a better understanding of the market adoption of UV coatings, the market is analyzed based on its worldwide presence in the countries such as North America (the United States, Canada, Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, and Rest of Asia-Pacific), and Rest of World. In 2020, the Asia-Pacific region held a significant share of the global UV coating market and is likely to showcase robust growth over the forecast period. This can be ascribed to the presence of a large number of end-use consumers ranging from industrial sectors to graphic arts. Moreover, a large portion of consumers are still unaware of UV technology, therefore it is expected that with increasing awareness about the benefits of UV coating, its demand is likely to grow in the regional economies during the forecast period.
