Polyester Coatings Market: Growth Factors
The polyester coatings are in great demand in the construction industry. The main reason behind the high growth of the polyester coatings market is growing construction industry on account of increasing population. People are opting for second home plans as investments due to the rise in their income. Thus, the increasing investments in the infrastructure are leading to the polyester coatings market growth. Constructions in not only residential but also commercial sectors are having their share of the market growth. The rise in development and innovations in the industries are directly increasing the chances of the usage of protective coatings. The OEM coating is also expected to boost the polyester coating market growth. The main reason that polyester coatings are used widely as compared to other coatings is its excellent corrosion and chemical resistant properties. The polyester coatings have properties such as chemical, abrasion, and salt resistance; hence, they are used in the marine industry. They also provide better dielectric properties, excellent resistance to humidity, and are also cost-effective. These all things are driving the polyester coatings market growth. The polyester coatings are produced from ethylene, a derivative of petroleum, hence the high cost of raw material may act as a market restraint. Another factor that hampers the market growth is the strict regulations imposed against the production of polyester coatings, as it is leading to many environmental problems and also affecting human health.
