Top 6 Vendors in the Waterborne Coatings Market From 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top six leading vendors in their recent global waterborne coatings market report. This research report also lists five other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

In 2015, the water-soluble paints segment was the largest product segment of the global waterborne coatings market, accounting for 49.5% market share. These paints are predominantly used in the developed economies, such as the US and Europe because they have low VOC content. These paints are used for coating automotive parts, such as interior body parts to prevent them from corrosion and mechanical stress.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global waterborne coatings market is highly fragmented with the existence of several players. It operates in a highly competitive market. The market is dominated by large global vendors, such as Axalta Coating Systems, Akzo Nobel, BASF, PPG Industries, RPM International, and Sherwin-Williams. These players have a vast geographical presence with huge production facilities located worldwide. Nonetheless, there are a sizeable number of small regional vendors with significant shares in the market.

While Akzo Nobel led the global paints and coatings market with a share of 16% in 2013, PPG Industries took the lead in the market in 2015 with a share of 17%. The vendors are focusing on increasing their market share through mergers and acquisitions,” says Swapnil Tejveer Sharma, a lead paints, coatings and pigments analyst from Technavio.

The stakeholders in the paints and coatings market are interdependent. Efficient use and proper application of advanced coatings technologies require considerable support services from all the stakeholders. Many vendors in the global paints and coatings market provide support services in addition to manufacturing products. Such services also enhance customer relationships and provide a competitive advantage to vendors in the market.
