The Indian powder coatings market accounted for $896.7 million in 2017 and is anticipated to reach $1,508.2 million by 2025, registering a CAGR of 6.6% from 2018 to 2025, according to a report by Allied Market Research.

Powder coatings is type of coating used specifically for coating of metals, for prevention against corrosion and for finishing applications. Powder coatings are superior compared to liquid coating, as they are free from volatile organic compounds (VOCs) unlike liquid coating.

The Indian powder coatings market is driven by increase in industrialization and rapid urbanization. Furthermore, the market is also driven by rise in demand from applications such as automotive, general industrial, furniture, and others. The Indian powder coatings market size is expanding at a significant pace owing to rising foreign direct investments (FDI) due to Make in India scheme.

This market majorly consists of epoxy and polyester-based products and gains popularity in the Indian market as it exhibits abrasion, slippage, spillage, heat, and chemical resistance. The surface on which epoxy powder coatings is applied remains seamless, antistatic, and is easy to maintain.

Growth in competition from substitutes is expected to hamper the growth of the India powder coating market. The Indian powder coatings market share in the Asia-Pacific market is experiencing considerable growth due to increase in infrastructural investment.

The Indian powder coatings market is segmented based on resin type, coating method, application, and region. Based on resin type, the market is divided into, thermoset and thermoplastic. The thermoset is further classified into epoxy, polyester, epoxy polyester hybrid and acrylic. Thermoplastic is further is bifurcated into polyvinyl chloride (PVC), nylon, polyolefin, and polyvinylidiene fluoride (PVDF).

Based on coating method, it is bifurcated into electrostatic spray and fluidized bed. Based on application, it is fragmented into appliances, automotive, architectural, furniture, agriculture, construction, and earthmoving equipment (ACE), general industrial, and others. Based on region, the market is analyzed across North India, South India, East India, and West India.

Some of the major key players operating in the market include Akzo Nobel India Ltd., Jotun India Private Limited, Marpol Private Limited, Rapid Engineering Co. Pvt. Ltd., Berger Paints India Limited, and PPG Asian Paints Private Limited., Maharani Paints Pvt. Ltd., Durolac Paints, Inc., Titan Paints & Chemicals Ltd., and Tulip Paints. Other players operating in the market include the Zigma Paints (P) Limited, Paramount Powders Pvt. Ltd., Chanda Paints Pvt. Ltd., and Par-Ferro Coatings Pvt. Ltd.

Indian powder coatings market, by resin type

With regards to resin type, the thermoset segment occupied the highest share of 93.7% in terms of volume in the overall market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance throughout the analysis period. Rise in demand from automotive industry is one of the significant factors for the growth of thermoset in the India powder coatings market.

Indian powder coatings market, by coating method

Based on coating method, the electrostatic spray method dominated the market in 2017. High transfer efficiency, as well as less overspray are the advantages offered by electrostatic spray. Owing to these advantages, it is majorly adopted across various end user industries.

Electrostatic spray coating requires entire coating equipment, which is a huge investmaent for small areas of painting. This factor is expected to decrease the demand for electrostatic spray coatings for small scale applications in India during the forecast period.

Indian powder coatings market, by application

Based on application, the appliances segment dominated the market in 2017. The trend toward replacing the monotone color of white appliances with polychromatic colors and special-effect pigmented coatings boosts the adoption of powder coatings in the appliances. Powder coating based on epoxy polyester resin blend is used for coating domestic appliances. Technological advancements in coil coatings drives the demand for consumer appliance coatings, thereby boosting the growth of the powder coatings market.

Indian powder coatings market, by region

Based on region, West India accounts for major share in the India powder coatings market. Favorable government initiatives such as Make in India lead to increase in industrial setups in states such as Gujarat and Maharashtra, which is expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the India powder coatings market. In addition, rise in investments to enhance the infrastructure development activities by Indian government in states such as Maharashtra will further provide lucrative growth opportunities for the powder coatings market.
