How big is the market of industrial coatings

how big is the market for industrial coatings

Generally speaking, coatings can be divided into two parts: architectural coatings and industrial coatings. According to the general definition, industrial coatings cover traffic coatings, other coatings, etc. Under traffic coatings, automotive coatings, marine coatings and other coatings can be subdivided. Although the manufacturer has considered a lot of interior and exterior coatings in the design of architectural coatings, interior coatings include interior coatings, floor coatings, furniture coatings, etc

architectural coatings account for 30% - 40% of the total output of coatings (2009 data), and industrial coatings account for 60% - 70%. Industrial coating is the pillar of coating industry. What is the proportion of industrial coatings in the coating industry? Take China as an example. From January to July 2009, the total output of coatings in China was about 4.7 million tons, of which industrial coatings accounted for 70%, and this proportion is still on the rise. Like civil coatings, China's industrial coatings market is far from saturated

it is estimated that no one can give an accurate quantitative standard for how big the market of industrial coatings is. Especially in China, there are many potential markets that have not been explored. Due to the wide range of fields covered by industrial coatings, it is impossible to conduct a detailed analysis. Here, several fields that are generally concerned by people and have a decisive position are selected for introduction

application fields:

1. Automotive coatings

it is estimated that by 2012, China's automotive output will reach 12million vehicles, and a total of about 480000 tons of automotive coatings will be required, including about 250000 tons of new vehicle paint, about 95000 tons of repair paint, and about 135000 tons of component paint and PVC stone impact resistant paint

2. Protective coatings for high-speed railway and urban rail transit

under the background of the financial crisis, the Chinese government made a generous offer of 4trillion yuan to stimulate the economy at the end of 2008. Among the stimulus policies, 89% were invested in infrastructure such as roads and railways. Among them, the construction of high-speed railway in China has entered a peak period. According to the national high-speed railway construction plan, 18000 kilometers of high-speed railway will be put into operation in China by 2020, of which 12000 kilometers will be completed in 2012. Because of its high-speed characteristics, high-speed railway requires the line to be as flat and straight as possible, so it needs a lot of bridges and tunnels. Take the 1318 km long Beijing Shanghai railway as an example, of which the proportion of bridge and tunnel length is as high as 87.7%. The high-speed railway has high requirements for the anti-corrosion and waterproof performance of bridges and tunnels, and a large number of high-quality and high-performance protective coatings need to be used

3. Protective coatings and marking coatings for highways and large bridges

the density of signs on highways is very large, including import and export warnings, road instructions, speed restrictions, height restrictions and so on. These signboards, including the protective paint for their supporting columns, belong to the category of industrial coatings. The more highways are built, the more signboards are set, which drives the demand growth of related coatings. The construction of many large bridges also requires a lot of anti-corrosion paint, pavement marking paint, signboard paint, etc

4. Marine coatings

it is estimated that China's shipbuilding output will reach more than 20 million tons in 2010, surpassing South Korea and Japan to become the world's largest shipbuilding country. With the development and expansion of China's shipbuilding industry, the market space of China's marine coatings will also be further explored

5. Other industrial coatings

in addition to the above application fields, industrial coatings, such as container coatings, anti-corrosion coatings for offshore oil drilling platforms, kilns, transmission pipeline coatings, transmission and transformation tower coatings, electronic coatings, plastic coatings, handicraft coatings, are also important stages. Moreover, with the continuous progress of industrialization, emerging industrial fields will continue to appear, and will become another important market for industrial coatings. For example, some foreign coating enterprises have been involved in the development and application of coatings in emerging fields such as optoelectronics and bioengineering. Coatings play a vital role in the fields of computers and mainboards, optical fiber communication cables, urban sewage and wastewater treatment

in contrast, domestic industrial coating enterprises are mainly small and medium-sized enterprises, which are difficult to compete with international coating giants in terms of capital, technology, brand and so on. Moreover, most domestic painting enterprises have emerged after the implementation of market economy, which is inevitably a little tender compared with the history of hundreds of years of international giants. At present, many automobile production in China are Sino foreign joint ventures, using other people's technology and brands. In foreign countries, automobile manufacturers have already formed cooperative relations with corresponding coating enterprises. Even if they enter China in the form of joint venture, they will first consider using foreign brand coatings. Even national automobile brands such as Chery will choose PPG and Nippon as suppliers of automotive coatings. According to relevant statistics, 75% to 80% of China's automotive original paint market is carved up by foreign brands

of course, it cannot be said that all domestic industrial coating markets have been robbed by international coating giants. Still take automotive coatings as an example. In the touch up paint market, about 75% of the market share is occupied by domestic brands, but most of it is the low-end market in the touch up paint; In the plastic paint market, most of the market is dominated by foreign brands

development direction:

with the increasingly prominent global environmental problems, the coating industry, as a member of the chemical industry, is also facing the test of environmental protection. Environmental protection, energy conservation and health are the inevitable development direction of coating products. Industrial coatings are destined to undertake more important environmental protection because of its important position in the coating industry and its penetration into the field of life

from the current development situation, it is generally believed that water-based coatings with energy conservation, environmental protection and low pollution will eventually replace solvent based coatings. In addition, high solid coatings, powder coatings, solvent-free coatings and radiation curing coatings are also environmentally friendly coatings. Environmental friendly coating is the inevitable direction of the future development of coating industry. Although the development of environmental friendly coating technology still needs to be broken through, many coating enterprises, especially international coating giants, are increasing their investment in the research of environmental friendly coating technology, so that they can take the lead in the field of environmental friendly coatings in the future. According to relevant data, at present, environmental friendly industrial coatings have accounted for about 20% of the world's industrial coatings, and it is estimated that this proportion will rise to 30% by 2010. In developed regions of Europe, this proportion has reached the level of 30%. Environmental friendly industrial coatings have broad market prospects

in addition, in the application field of industrial coatings, whether it is general industrial coatings related to people's daily life (involving and developing a class of light induced valence tautomeric compounds with room temperature magneto-optical effect, household appliances, furniture, etc.), or protective coatings for production equipment, railway roads and bridges, ships, aircraft, etc. in factories, it is required to have higher weather resistance to extend the service life of related industrial products. In other words, more and more attention has been paid to the weatherability of industrial coatings. Improving the weatherability of industrial coatings, especially heavy-duty anti-corrosion coatings, will also become an important development direction of industrial coatings in the future

from the perspective of the level of the industrial coating market, the future market of industrial coatings will concentrate on the medium and high-end markets (among which the high-end market should also include the coating market in emerging industrial fields). Whether it can meet the needs of the medium and high-end market can be accurate to 0.01 mm to test the real strength of a coating enterprise. In addition, the technology added value of coating products in the medium and high-end fields is high, which has always been coveted by many coating enterprises. Compared with the situation that Chinese industrial coating enterprises are generally dominant in the low-end market, it will be difficult to gain a foothold in the future industrial coating market competition if the technological disadvantages are not changed

looking at the current situation of China's industrial coating market, although we can deeply realize the huge potential contained in the market, domestic coating enterprises are difficult to make achievements, and are at a relative disadvantage in the competition with international coating giants. At the same time, the competition between domestic coating enterprises is very chaotic, and there is a lack of centripetal leading enterprises. If Chinese coating enterprises want to obtain greater living space in the future market competition, they must integrate the production mode dominated by small and medium-sized coating enterprises to ensure the investment of capital and technology. First of all, we should optimize our own competition structure, including grating ruler, measuring range and stepping electromechanical competition ability, and then we can get the opportunity to compete with international giants. In terms of products, we should grasp the general direction of environmental protection, improve the technical content of products, focus on the medium and high-end markets and emerging industrial markets, change the traditional concept of winning by quantity, and take the road of winning by quality

harm of paint to body:

1 Resins may be synthetic substances, which may cause respiratory tract allergy, skin allergy and other symptoms

2 The hardener of two fluid baking varnish may contain isocyanic acid, which may irritate skin, mucous membrane and cause respiratory dysfunction

3 Paint may contain harmful substances such as lead and may cause mental system, skin and respiratory diseases
