For instance, BASF SE, one of the leading players in the coating binders market launched new low odor binder for paper coating, with minimal content of VOC. Moreover, BASF’s construction chemicals division recently opened a development laboratory in Dubai. The company is focusing on developing new technologies to improve performance of construction and concrete materials.
Rapid urbanization and infrastructure growth in emerging economies is resulting in an increasing demand for coating binders. Epoxy resins as coating binders are finding large application in the construction and infrastructure sector. The Asia Pacific holds growth opportunities for coating binders’ manufacturers, with substantial growth in the infrastructure sector in China and India.
Water-based products are gaining popularity in the coatings industry. Acrylic polymers as binders are used widely in paints as water-borne emulsions. These water-borne emulsion paints are used on a large scale as decorative paints for outside and inside of buildings. According to the report by expert team from Global Construction Perspectives and Oxford Economics, volume of construction output is likely to growth by 85% worldwide by 2030, driven by India, China, and the US.

The move towards water-based coatings can be seen across various regions with stringent regulations on VOC emissions. According to the Paint Quality Institute, water-based paints account for around 80% of household paints sales.
The on-going trend of low and zero VOC coatings is offering opportunities for innovation in coating binders. Antimicrobial coating technology is gaining popularity ensuring microbial control, providing hygienic surfaces and providing film preservation in paints. For instance, Croda has launched MyCroFence, a first-generation acrylic binder with the active antimicrobial surface component.
With the increasing use of lithium-ion batteries in the automotive sector, manufacturers in the coating binders market are focusing on developing effective coating binder material that can replace industry standard polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) binder, a toxic solvent with the water-based solvent.
Conductive polymer gel binders ensuring long-term stability of electrodes in high power lithium-ion batteries have gain traction as a novel polymer binder for next-generation high energy and high power lithium-ion batteries. The rise in an autonomous driving system is also resulting in the development of paint and coating binders for vehicle sensors.
