MarketResearchReports.Biz presents this most up-to-date research on “ Global Waterborne Coatings Market 2016-2020 "

The report, titled “Global Waterborne Coatings Market 2016-2020,” states that the market will exhibit a nearly 5% CAGR over the period between 2016 and 2020, driven largely by the rising aversion to the environmentally harmful solvent-based coatings.

Waterborne coatings are gaining traction in the global market despite performance limitation chiefly due to the stringent regulations that require product manufacturers to limit their usage of solvent-based coatings. The high content of toxic and volatile organic compounds of several varieties of solvent-based coatings are working against their favor, and are leading end-users to shift to effective varieties of waterborne coatings. The minimum fire hazard of waterborne coatings make them compatible with a wide array of surfaces such as glass, metal, and wood.

The report segments the market on the basis of product type into water-soluble paints, water-based alkyd coatings, and emulsion-latex coatings. Of these, the segment of water-soluble paints dominated the global waterborne coatings market in 2015, accounting for the bulk of sales in the global market. Water-soluble paints find usage in the automotive industry for coating interior body parts of automobiles, chiefly to prevent them from corrosion, rusting, and fouling. Rising government regulations regarding the infrastructure industry will also be a key driving force bolstering the growth of this segment over the forecast period.
