Evolving concerns apropos of sustainability have induced a massive shift toward bio based alternatives, with bio-based coatings being one of them. The transition of paint and coatings industry toward bio-based coatings remains immensely influenced by environmental reasons and this transition is likely to scale new heights in the upcoming years. With increasing awareness in the society apropos of environmentally-responsible products, the sales of bio-based coatings is set to increase by a significant margin in the upcoming years. Development of green products in the paints and coatings industry is one of the megatrends fostering demand for bio-based coatings.
Low emissions with optimal performance has spurred the sales of bio-based coatings and this demand is not likely to decline anytime soon. Manufacturers of bio-based coatings are increasingly investing in research and development initiatives to foster product development in a seamless manner. Long term resolutions of substantial reduction of CO2 emissions are also one of the key driving forces boosting growth of bio-based coatings market. Manufacturers of bio-based coatings are also focusing on integration of latest technologies to enable product amelioration, which in turn will be a key contributing factor for the year-over-year sales growth of bio-based coatings.
The bio-based coatings are formulated with “green” chemicals and are subjected to low or zero VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) content. The shift of consumer behavior from the traditional coatings to the newer bio-based coatings can be credited to the advanced benefits of low VOC products. These benefits include low toxicity, low groundwater and ozone depletion pollutants, easy maintenance, low environmental impact, reduced odor, low carbon footprint and easy disposal.
Coupled with the awareness, various initiatives and regulations by several environmental agencies have been put into effect to safeguard public interest. Such policies make it mandatory for the producers to manufacture lower toxic products containing low VOC compounds.
