Global Market for Bio-based Coatings Historical and Forecast to 2033


Dublin, May 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Global Market for Bio-based Coatings 2023-2033" report has been added to's offering.

The most widely used commercial coatings are based on petroleum derivatives (resins, solvents). Due to consumer and environmental concerns, coupled with regulation, manufacturers and formulators are developing alternatives to synthetic products, identifying safer materials with a low environmental impact for protective coatings

Over the past decade, the coatings industry has increasingly introduced eco-friendly technologies, such as processes involving UV-cure, treatments with less or no solvents, waterborne products, hyperbranched, high solid coatings to achieve high-performance coatings.

This is now being supplemented by the production of coatings centred on bio-based materials in order to obtain a treatment that is sustainable from both the point of view of the production process and the raw materials used. Many producers have introduced bio-based alternatives in product formulations, replacing fossil-based compounds that possess similar properties, and also potentially have wider applications

Growing pressure to comply with stringent health and safety legislation and demonstrate a reduced environmental impact is also compelling manufacturers to progressively introduce bio-derived alternatives to traditional chemicals.

All ten of the top ten coatings companies by global sales now offer eco-friendly products with low-VOC emissions, and the reduction or replacement of traditional solvents, resins and pigments is now a high priority
