Global Powder Coating Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

The global powder coating market size is estimated to reach ~USD 34.32 Billion by the end of 2035 by growing at a CAGR of ~6.9% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In addition to this, in the year 2022, the market size of powder coating was ~USD 15.41 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing sales of vehicles, which further boosted the growing demand for electric vehicles. Manufacturers have successfully used powder coating for extending the battery life and boost the performance of the battery. Powder coating provides insulation in the electric vehicle and saves the battery from corrosion. The production of electric vehicles in China reached around 7 million units in 2022, up 97% year on year. Moreover, the EV output in December 2022 was 795,000 units, up 4% month on month and 52% year on year.

In addition to these, factors that are believed to fuel the market growth of powder coating include the rising demand for agriculture equipment and machinery. Powder coating is more flexible than typical wet paint and reduces the possibility of mistakes by requiring only one layer. The tough protective powder coating functions as a shield between your farm equipment and the outdoors. Moreover, it is less prone to weathering than regular wet paint. In India the sale of agriculture equipment in 2020 was around 810,000 units sold. This figure increased by around 4% to nearly 840,000 sales in 2021. Besides this, powder coating is also used in providing a harder finish to the wood and steel than traditional paint. Therefore, it is highly used at the time of construction for providing strength to the architectural structure against abrasion, and reaction with chemicals and temperature.

Despite Inflation & Fearing Recession, Businesses Across the Globe Expected to Do Better in 2023:

In 2023, market players might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain.
Controlling Inflation has become the first priority for global economies from last quarter of 2022 and to be followed in 2023. With skewed economic situations, rise in interest rate by governments to control spending and inflation, spiked oil and gas prices, high inflation, geo-political issues including U.S. & China trade war, Russia-Ukraine conflict to intensify the global economic issues.
The interest rates in the U.S. may be less sensitive in 2023 as compared to 2022; sigh of relief for businesses. Positive business sentiments, healthy business balance sheets, growth in construction spending (private construction value in 2022 stood at $1,429.2 billion, 11.7 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $1,279.5 billion spent in 2021, Residential construction in 2022 was $899.1 billion, up by 13.3 percent (±2.1 percent) from $793.7 billion in 2021, non-residential construction touched $530.1 billion, 9.1 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $485.8 billion in 2021.) showcases minimal impact of recession in the country.
Similarly, spiked spending in the European and major Asia economics including, India, China & Japan to showcase less impact on the global demand.
