In this report, Technavio highlights the rise in demand for smart coatings as one of the key emerging trends driving the global coatings market. Smart coatings are films that have predefined properties that help them in sensing and responding to environmental and other external stimuli. These coatings are suitable for material protection, corrosion protection, and other surface improvement applications owing to its properties such as self-repair and self-healing. For example, in corrosion protection, the smart coatings' functionalities include a warning, sensing, repair, and corrosion inhibition. This is attained by incorporating pH-triggered release of multifunctional microcapsules and self-healing into the smart coating. These coatings are designed in such a way that they remain passive unless they are compelled to perform a function based on the stimuli

In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the rise in construction activity as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global coatings market:
Rise in construction activity
Globally, the construction activity is growing due to the increasing focus on infrastructure, which is enabling economic growth and improving the living standards of people. Developed countries such as the US, Canada, and countries in the European Union (EU) are looking to improve their existing infrastructure. In these developed economies, bridges, dams, buildings, and roads require repairs, which is expected to drive growth in the global coatings market.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for paints, coatings, and pigments, “In the construction industry, even though the commercial construction sector is expected to increase, the residential construction will be the major driving force behind the growth of the industry during the forecast period due to the rise in housing activities. Some of the products that use coating material for construction and provide artistic appeal to residential and commercial buildings are roofs, wood panels, and metal sheets. Commercial buildings, offices, and complex buildings are triggering the demand for coating industry due to the use of coating for the coil to sustain harsh weather conditions.”
