Green coatings are eco-friendly paint coating with low volatile organic compound (VOC) content. Emission of VOC releases toxics in the surrounding air causing health problems, such as dizziness, headache, kidney damage, and harms the ozone layer. Development of sustainable products has gained importance over the past few decades, due to which manufacturers are focused on introducing eco-friendly products to the market. Manufacturers are aiming to produce high-performance coatings that have zero or low VOC with good durability. Application of green coatings in end-use industries and rising awareness regarding VOC emissions have contributed to the growth of the green coatings market globally.

Stringent government regulations have immensely driven the green coatings market globally. The first restriction on the emission of VOC was set up for Europe in 2003, which was termed as Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS), which was put forward by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). Since then manufactures are working to produce green coatings, in turn fueling the growth of the green coatings market. Increasing cost of raw materials further increases the cost of green coatings, which is the restraint for the growth of global green coatings market. High investment cost further hinders the growth of green coatings market globally.
