Wood coatings are used to maintain the wood while also adding to its visual appeal. It creates hard surface topcoats that are considered gloss retention, with good colour, great performance, and chemical resistance. Wood coating protects the wood from environmental deterioration and chemical attacks, in addition to improving its visual appearance. Wood coatings are suitable for both internal and external use. The outer wood coating treatment boosts the wood's endurance, protects it from humid climates, and makes it more resistant to termite attack.

The global wood coatings market is expected to surpass US$ 18,143.45 Million by the end of 2030, in terms of revenue, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period (2022 to 2030).

Drivers

As the service industry grows, a large section of the population moves to new areas, resulting in the growth of hostels, co-living spaces, guest houses, and government buildings. As a result, the demand for a wide range of furniture products is likely to rise. Interior design concepts for homes, businesses, and apartments are always evolving in the furniture industry. This promotes innovation and development, particularly in terms of design, size, and color, and is predicted to increase the volume of furniture produced globally. All of the aforementioned factors will have a significant impact on the demand for wood coatings in the forecast period.

To strengthen the position in the wood coating market, major firms are investing in innovative technologies and creating infrastructure. For instance, in February 2021, Axalta has created a smartphone app for users of wood coatings. New constructions, remodeling of existing houses, and a drop in the cost of raw materials will all contribute to the industry's growth as the world population grows and the housing market stabilizes. The need for wood coating, on the other hand, is a result of the world's unsteady economic situation.

Asia Pacific dominated the global wood coatings market in 2021, accounting for 58.2% share, in terms of revenue, followed by Latin America and North America. The home furnishings sector in Asia Pacific is being driven by changing lifestyles and increased disposable income in emerging economies such as India & Japan.

Market Restraints

The wood coatings market growth is expected to be restrained by preference given to laminates over wood coatings. Laminates are manufactured by pressing thin layers of flat paper or plastic resins, which are used as a finishing layer for plywood, particle board, wooden furniture, wall panels, and flooring. Laminates are available in numerous colors & shades and are easy to maintain. They are not only scratch-resistant and waterproof but are also highly durable and able to retain their look for years. Moreover, laminates only require periodic cleaning with a non-abrasive cloth and soft cleaning agent. Damaged laminate edges or surfaces can easily be removed and repaired without having to resurface the whole furniture, which in turn, lowers the maintenance costs. These factors are expected to hamper the wood coatings market growth.

Wood Coatings  | Coherent Market Insights

On the basis of Technology, Solvent-borne dominated the global wood coatings market in 2021, accounting for around 56.7% of market share, in terms of revenue, owning to its low cost and quick drying properties, conventional solid solvent borne coatings are in increased demand. Due to the simple accessibility of the hydrocarbon solvent base and the addition of viscosity to the wood coating, which aids in coating application to specific objects, the standard solid solvent based wood coatings are inexpensive. The growth of the global wood coatings market is highly influenced by all of these factors taken together.

Global Wood Coatings Market - Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

Wood coatings is commonly used in furniture making such as chairs, tables, beds, sofas, shelves, and cupboards. All these sectors were negatively impacted in 2020, the supply of wood coatings was halted in most nations as a result of the pandemic's lockdown, which has impacts for businesses across a wide range of industries. Moreover, wood coatings is also majorly used in the paints and coatings industry. The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the paints and coatings industry worldwide – particularly in low- and middle-income countries.  However, the efficiency in terms of the paints and coatings industry of some countries started propelling in the mid of 2021. For instance, according to data published by the British Coatings Federation, the sole UK Trade Association, on March 23, 2022, sales of industrial coatings dropped by 35% in April and 37% in May of 2020, but improved in June 2020. According to the same source, industry sales were up over 45% in June 2021 and grew by 4% in January 2022.

Few Recent Developments

In July 2020, Katilac Coatings, an industrial wood coatings producer launched an antimicrobial coatings solution, KCI-AMA. This solution protects against a variety of pathogens, including disease-causing bacteria and viruses, for a long time using a dry film.

Wood coating, commonly known as Topcoat, is used to protect hardwood surfaces against water, sunlight, oil, dust, and other household chemicals. Boards, frames, garden furniture and street furniture, modern furniture, replica furniture, kitchens, doors, furnishing accessories, and traditional flooring can all benefit from wood coatings. Wood coats make it easy to clean and disinfect wood. It also aids in the closure of pores that can serve as bacterial breeding grounds. Coatings are the final phase in the wood finishing process, and they provide a pleasing appearance to wooden surfaces. Wood coatings can also be used to create custom wooden designs. Wood finishing gives it a more appealing appearance, allows it to last longer, and increases its durability.

Market Dynamics

When compared to other technologies, solvent-borne coatings are more affordable, which is driving the global wood coatings market growth. Solvent borne coatings are typically utilized as liquid protective layers that are placed to the surface of a material to prevent corrosion. They are made up of organic compounds, and due to the drying feature of solvent-borne coatings, they have a higher toughness than aqueous coatings, making them a better alternative for corrosion control. Solvent-borne coatings also have a little benefit over waterborne coatings in that they work well even in humid situations, when the latter fails to cure properly.

Moreover, the market is being driven by an increase in construction and remodeling activity. Many modern constructions require the use of wood and coatings are required to protect these woods. As a result, the need for wood finishing has increased in recent years. The increase in new constructions may lead to the market's high profitability. Furthermore, growing disposable income will drive the global wood coatings market. As disposable incomes rise in emerging countries, more money is invested in wood treatments.

However, the negative effects of this substance on the environment have resulted in stringent government controls. Coating production and application are limited in several areas. As a result, the adoption rate is decreasing.
