Market Scope

Market Research Future (MRFR) anticipates that the Wood Coatings Market will soar at a rate of 5.35% between 2022 and 2030 (appraisal period).

Regional Insight

The Wood Coatings Market size has been geographically segmented in terms of Europe, MEA or the Middle East & Africa, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and North America.

The Asia Pacific has become the prime spot for large-scale foreign investments, considering the rapid growth of commercial and residential construction sectors. The availability of cheap labor is another important growth rendering factor. China has secured the top spot in the region and is likely to have the fastest growth rate of more than 5% between 2022 and 2030. During the same period, India shall seize the second-biggest share of the APAC market while seizing a substantial growth rate. Mounting product demand in the region is also the result of the exploding population witnessing surge in disposable incomes as well as the heightened focus on eco-friendly and sustainable construction. Surging spending on infrastructure development by the government, especially in India and China could also foster the product demand in the following years. For instance, the Indian government recently introduced its 100 smart cities plan that includes construction of residential buildings, offices, schools, hotels, urban transport, sanitation, hospitals, and retail.

Europe shall attain the second position and also grab a moderate growth rate of 5.4% during the assessment period. Germany is most likely to be the highest gainer and continue to expand at the fastest rate during the forecast period. Favorable interest rates, high economic growth, and the constant participation of the public sector has driven the growth of the construction sector in the region, which should bolster the use of wood coatings. The European market also profits from the rise in immigration as well as the escalating urbanization rate, along with increasing spending on the development of durable and sustainable infrastructure.

North America is a strong market for wood coatings, in view of the high focus on energy conservation in buildings. Launch of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design green building certification initiative by the government is likely to work in favor of the wood coatings market in the region.

Major Boosters and Restraints

Rapidly expanding construction industry worldwide and the booming population in line with evolving lifestyles are some of the major growth boosters in the global market. Wood coatings help boost the aesthetic appeal of wooden surfaces while also protecting them. Their applications are in furniture, cabinets, decking & floorings, sidings, and more. With rising purchasing capacity, people are making long-term investments in real estate as well as maintenance activities like coating and painting for higher durability. They are also investing in furnishing, given the strong impact of the urbanization trend across major cities. This is likely to bolster the growth rate of the wood coatings market in the next few years.

One of the latest trends noted in the global market is the soaring inclination towards long-lasting and cost-effective wood coatings as opposed to quick-fix, short-term solutions. Additionally, the stunning rate at which the furniture sector is growing should favor the wood coatings industry. Apart from this, emergence of sophisticated technologies with respect to wood coating is bound to work in favor of the global market over the conjectured timeframe. Surging preference for eco-friendly wood coating along with the rise in remodeling activities should also enhance the market size.
