Westford USA, April 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Waterborne Coatings market is projected to achieve a value of USD 106.40 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period (2022-2030). The market’s growth is being fueled by increasing demand from the construction industry, stringent environmental regulations, the rising automotive industry, and increasing demand for eco-friendly coatings. According to SkyQuest reports, the construction industry contributes over 30% of VOC emissions in the United States. As a result, regulatory agencies like the EPA enforce stringent regulations to decrease VOC emissions in the construction sector. This has resulted in an increased demand for waterborne coatings that emit lower levels of VOCs than conventional solvent-based coatings.

SkyQuest’s latest global research shows that the waterborne coatings market for the automotive sector is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12% from 2022 to 2030. The report attributes this growth to increasing demand for eco-friendly coatings and the expanding production of vehicles in emerging economies. SkyQuest’s survey revealed that vehicle buyers are increasingly concerned about the environmental impact of their cars. According to the study, 41% of new vehicle buyers in the United States consider environmental concerns when making a purchase decision. This trend is expected to boost the demand for waterborne coatings in the automotive industry, as they are seen as more eco-friendly than traditional solvent-based coatings.
