The introduction of anti-microbial coatings is expected to boost the global decorative paints market growth. These coatings use chemicals to prevent the growth of disease-causing micro-organisms. They provide lasting and effective protection against harmful bacteria, mold, and fungi. A growing concern for cleanliness in several surroundings has led to the continued growth of the market. Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the growth of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), the importance of anti-microbial decorative coating has grown significantly. Hospitals, schools, and food production facilities are experiencing the high application of anti-microbial paints as these places are susceptible to bacterial and microbial growth.

Global Decorative Coatings Market Segmentation
The global decorative coatings market research report includes a detailed segmentation by resin type, formation, product, end-user, surface type, geography. The demand for water-borne acrylic coatings is likely to augment during the forecast period due to their low volatile organic component (VOC) content, high gloss retention, and promising drying times. Acrylic decorative coatings are used in residential and non-residential sectors. Increasing government initiatives to construct commercial and industrial infrastructure in emerging countries will offer acrylic coatings manufacturers opportunities. Also, the demand for eco-friendly water-based acrylic coatings is expected to boost the growth during the forecast period. Europe and North America are the major end-users of these solutions due to the high preference for environment-friendly solutions. Acrylic water-borne coatings have replaced solvent-borne in North America and Western Europe and several developing economies.

The water-borne decorative coatings market is expected to reach over USD 51 billion by 2026. Stringency on VOC and emission standards regulations have contributed to the market growth. These regulations have increased the demand for water-borne coatings in the APAC region. New VOC regulations for solvent-based coatings in Europe have reduced CO2 emission levels. There is a shift toward water-based coatings and other environment-friendly systems with low VOC content. APAC dominates the market for water-borne coatings due to increased direct foreign investments and the booming manufacturing sector. The growing middle-class population, rising per capita income, and increasing living standards are further expected to drive the market.

Emulsion-based paints are becoming increasingly popular among consumers as they are less toxic with no odor and release a small quantity of VOCs. These paints have witnessed enormous growth over the past few years with rapid urbanization, the revival of the economy, and increased disposable incomes. The emulsion-based paint market is the fastest-growing segment and has been on a growth trajectory in the last few years. The demand for emulsion-based paint has been continuously increased due to the substitution of solvent-based systems with water-based ones, which are environment friendly.

Residential end-users dominated the decorative coating market in 2020. The rise in disposable income, growing living standards, rising nuclear families, rising concern for sustainability and eco-friendliness are expected to drive the market for the next five years in the residential sector. The increased emphasis on rapid urbanization is likely to push construction across the globe. The rise in the construction of buildings and civic infrastructure will drive the market for decorative coatings. Another major trend that has led to the significant demand for the decorative coatings industry is DIY product usage. The use of decorative coatings in the DIY process is prevalent in developed countries such as the US, the UK, and Germany. However, the trend the rapidly expanding to developing countries.

Interior decorative coating products have minimal impact on the environment and have a low odor and offer many performance properties. The interior decorative coatings market share is growing due to increasing commercial construction and the high focus on commercial and residential maintenance. An increase in disposable incomes is another important factor boosting the market. Changing lifestyles and rising standards of living have encouraged customers to use premium quality decorative products.
