Market Definition:

The Exterior Architectural Coatings Market size was valued at USD 30.40 billion in 2021 and is predicted to reach USD 48.60 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 5.3% from 2022-2030.

Exterior architectural coatings are paint or a layer that is used on the surface of exteriors to strengthen the performance further increasing its artistic beauty. These coatings are mostly prepared from acrylic emulsions along with styrene acrylics. It protects the surface under uncertain conditions including extreme wild climate, fluctuating temperature, pollution, and corrosion. Exterior architectural coatings protect surface from the harmful effects of UV rays and microbes. These coatings enhance the appearance and improve the longevity of the wall surface. These paints keep out moisture, shield the walls from pollution and dust by preventing mold and maintain the aesthetic of the buildings. It covers prominent industries such as real estate and healthcare. The main properties of these coatings include good opacity, high blending ability, sheen uniformity and durability.

Market Dynamics and Trends:

The demand for exterior architectural coatings has been increasing due to the rapid modernization & urbanization along with various government initiatives such as development of smart cities, industrial corridors, infrastructure projects and reconstruction of existing cities in developing economies like China, India and Brazil. According to International Trade Administration, Brazil’s construction industry is undergoing a period of increased international competition in the domestic market, it increased at the rate 8.99% in the period from July 2020 to July 2021. This is estimated to have helped over 1.2 million jobs and the construction of over 530,000 new residential units.

Also, increasing demand for volatile organic compounds (VOC) free coating coupled with the rising eco-friendly coatings with better durability that provides esthetical designs with better performance is expected to boost the growth of the market. For instance, in September 2020, allnex launched a new eco-friendly phenolic resin ‘Phenodur’. This new coating is applicable for interior and exterior uses with a very low free formaldehyde value. phenodur provides an excellent balance of hardness and flexibility and offers a very smooth cured coating surface.
