The major drivers identified for the global coating pretreatment market are rising demand for powder coatings, high growth in end-use industries, and increasing demand from developing countries. The demand from the construction application is driven by growing urbanization in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa, which resulted into increased demand for residential, commercial, and industrial infrastructure.
Chromate free coating pretreatment growing at the highest rate
Stringent government regulations in the U.S. and Europe, especially to reduce air pollution, will trigger the need for adopting new, low-pollution coating technologies. The chromate free pretreatment coatings are now used as a substitute of chromate-based pretreatment due to its environmental friendly nature. It also adheres to the regulations of REACH and other institutions. It is the fastest-growing market among all types of coating pretreatment in Europe and North America. It is used for the pretreatment of aluminum and light alloys.
Asia-Pacific is the largest market for coating pretreatment
Asia-Pacific is the largest market for coating pretreatment, both in terms of volume and value, followed by Europe and North America. Countries such as the U.S., China, and Germany are the major markets of coating pretreatment.
