Paint Additives Market to grow at a rate of 4.6% by 2032 | Get Customized Reports

The global paint additives market is projected to reach a value of US$ 14,877.8 Mn by 2032, with overall demand growing at a moderate CAGR of 4.6% from the forecast period of 2022 to 2032. Predicted to reach an estimated US$ 9,489.0 Mn in 2022, the paint additives market is spurred by escalating usage in diverse industry verticals such as automotive, architectural, wood & furniture, and others. Building and construction industry is one of the primary growth drivers for the paint additives market over the forecast period.

Paint additives help enhance the performance, efficacy, and usefulness of paint while addressing flaws, and increasing functionality. These additives remove deficiencies in the coating, boost abrasion resistance, stem the growth of microbes, and bestow distinctive properties to the paint, which are not easily attained. The escalating demand for paints and coatings is mainly because of the swift growth witnessed in the automotive and construction sectors. Further, the growing need to improve the efficiency and functionality of paints is expected to continue to play a vital role in the rising demand for paint additives throughout the upcoming decade. 

One of the primary end-user and growth drivers of the paint additives market is the building & construction sector. A wide range of paints and coatings are used to beautify and shield the details on the building surface. The paint additives market is growing at a rapid rate due to the extensive usage of paint additives in commercial and residential construction. These additives provide water resistance, corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, and thermal resistance. The growth of infrastructure activities like highways and dams, particularly in developing countries, are further propelling the growth of the target market.
