Green coatings are the latest trend in the UV coatings market. These coatings are environment friendly that help reduce pollution at any stage of the process. They are normally more expensive than other paints and coatings on the market; however, they are more advantageous and have comparable performance characteristics to regular hazardous paints.

Green coatings are becoming more popular in the coating industry as environmental regulations and standards become more stringent, particularly in Europe and North America. As a result, the demand for UV curable coatings is booming.

UV coatings for woods and glass give printed products like printed materials, posters, and banners a glossy surface, an appealing visual aesthetic and a matte texture. Increasing applications of 3D printing in numerous industries and growing demand from the print marketing sector will continue pushing sales in the paper and packaging industries.
