18th Asia Coatings Markets

01-02 Aug, 2018 - Jakarta, INDONESIA

Le Meridien Jakarta

“Improving Product Quality & Cost Economics
in Current Economy”

Asia Pacific continues to promise strong market growth and a leading consumer of coatings, as clearly proved by the swift pace of the region’s economic progress and bolstered construction activities and infrastructure developments. India, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Indonesia, South Korea, and Australia are displaying a very strong growth in coatings demand within the end-user industries of construction and automotive.


Growth witnessed by the paints and coatings industry in the last couple of years has been remarkable in key countries from emerging economies. Industrial development in emerging economies has created greater opportunities for the industry, thus fueling demand for coating products and solutions. Thus investments for localized R&D and coating production have been announced, to enable efficient and faster reaction to customer requirements, and maintain long-term competitiveness in this important sector. 


With the increased awareness of the negative effects of emission from coatings on health and environment, increasingly stringent regulations have been imposed globally. Stricter environmental move towards low or zero VOC regulations, have motivated the green routes in coating formulations, enforcing the transition from various solvent-based paints to water borne coatings. The global market for coatings with low or zero VOC content is forecast to reach $85.7 billion by 2018, spurred by the expansion by major manufacturers in China and India. Concurrently, the “Sustainability” wave or requirement is steering the global coatings industry to be consciously responsible on their solution offerings as well as their production.
