Wood Coatings Market By System Type (Solvent-borne, Water-borne, High-solids), By Type (Preservatives, Stains & Varnishes, Shellacs, Others), By End User (Furniture, Flooring, Decking, Siding, Others) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

The wood coatings functions in protecting the wood structures from interior to exterior. Prevention from moisture penetration and severe climatic conditions, necessitates wood coatings to ensure long term durability for its wood products. The growth in the construction activities coupled with the increase in spending power on repair and remoulding is expected to drive the global wood coatings market. 

Among the system type, solvent-borne segment accounted a major value share in 2016, and expected to lose share gradually by 2025. This is attributed by the harmful emissions through the use of organic solvents. However, the excellent finishing performance with technical advantages over others, marks the solvent-borne wood coatings to still dominate in the market.

Geographically, the Asia Pacific region registered a more than 45% value share in 2016 and expected to cater a significant growth by 2025. The government investments for the infrastructural development and initiatives towards housing schemes in countries such as India, Vietnam and ASEAN countries among others, is expected to propel the wood coatings market in the region. In China, the demand for water-borne wood coatings is on rise owing to the new tax reform on VOC emissions. In early 2015, the China government implemented the new tax with an objective to reduce the air pollution thereby benefitting the water-borne wood coating manufacturers. Overall, the global wood coating market is experiencing stringent environmental norms for VOCs and HAPs emissions, resulting in the gradual shift from solvent-borne coatings towards water-borne or high-solids coatings. 

Some of the key players present in this market are Teknos Group Oy, BASF SE, Akzo Nobel N.V., The Sherwin-Williams Company, Valspar Corporation, Covestro AG, PPG Industries, Inc., Morrells Wood Finishes, Axalta Coating Systems, LLC, Katilac Coatings Inc. among others. Mergers/acquisition and new product launch, are some of the strategies the companies are undertaking to mark their robust presence in the global wood coatings market.

For the purpose of this study, the global wood coatings market by end user is categorized into:

  • Furniture
  • Flooring
  • Decking
  • Siding
  • Others (Landscape, windows, doors etc.)

The increased development in residential construction benefit wood coatings market, primarily for furniture, flooring and decking end user. The furniture segment accounted value share of more than 25% followed by flooring segment in 2016. The growing demand for high-quality and durable furniture products coupled with hard wearing surfaces propels the wood coatings market for furniture segment.

The flooring and decking generally uses hardwood or engineered woods, which are the common choices for residential properties. The floorings are required to have slip resistance and durability for higher shelf life and thus drives wood coating market for flooring and decking. However, the wood floorings are expensive, and its maintenance and replacements are also highly valued. Vinyl floor titles with wooden floor style are new substitutes in the market with much cheaper value than wood. Such a substitute for flooring & decking might impact the growth of wood coating market.
