"Strategy To Manage Rising Raw Material Costs & Balancing Demand For Eco-Friendly Coatings"


The robust Asia-Pacific region, especially the booming markets of India, Indonesia and China, has recently seen a flurry of expansion and M&A activities by multinational coatings companies. The high demand for paints and coatings in the region are driven by the growth of end-user industries such as construction, automotive and furniture, as well as a growing affluent population.

Despite coatings industry players reporting healthy sales, profit margins are on the decline attributed to escalating raw material prices. A global shortage of titanium dioxide has resulted in several price hikes by suppliers in the past year leading to coatings producers passing on the price increases to their customers. What strategies are companies adopting to manage the price hike?

Green continues to be favoured by coatings consumers, who are driving the demand for eco-friendly products. Stricter regulations and plenty of incentives to go green leave the coatings industry no other option but to take the sustainable approach. Get updated on the latest environmental legislation and incentives in the different markets and industries in Asia, and find out how a leading coatings producer balances its strategies to minimise its carbon footprint in the production of eco-friendly paints.

CMT has previously brought its Asia Coatings Market conference to China, Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore, and this year, we are bringing it to Indonesia, one of the world's fastest growing markets. Investments are pouring into the country and the government has recently kick started a major infrastructure plan to boost the economy even further. Gain insights into the latest economic developments and discover upcoming opportunities in the biggest economy of South East Asia.

Biobased Building Blocks & Solvents in Coatings to be addressed by PURAC at 12th Asia Coatings Market

Posted on : 19 Oct, 2011


The use of bio-based materials is a vital emerging area in the coatings and paints industry. Leading paint and coatings manufacturers are in a constant race to develop new environmentally friendly, high-performance products that also meet some of the strictest clean-air requirements. Sustainability and a reduced carbon footprint have become increasingly important drivers for innovation in products.


Bio-based materials are used as component ingredients in formulated products or as processing aids in paints and coatings manufacturing. They provide alternatives for conventional solvents when regulatory, environmental, or safety and health pressures are exerted. Additionally, developing products that support lower VOC content continues to be a high priority in all segments of paints and coatings. Increasing concern over volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is compelling adhesives and coating formulators to capture and recycle solvents, reduce solvent use, or switch to solvents with better environmental profiles.


In reference to above issue, and to provide an overview on the trend towards bio-based materials, 12th Asia Coatings Market conference, to be held in Jakarta on 2-3 November, 2011, is delighted to welcome Mr. Frederik Feddes, Market Unit Manager- Chemicals & Pharma from PURAC Asia Pacific Pte Ltd , share his views in his presentation  “Development of Bio-Based Building Blocks and Solvents in Coatings”

‘Use Something Less to Achieve Something More’, says the world’s largest coatings company

Posted on : 30 Sep, 2011


"In the old days, when we developed paint, it was just about not adding harmful or hazardous chemicals, like lead. That’s basic. Today, the innovation is about creating very smart green coatings which are not only safe but that will also do something more active. It must be actively removing or neutralising pollutants in indoor air.” - Pamela Phua, Regional Research, Development and Innovation Director for Akzonobel, South-East Asia.


(Source: The Star Online, August 21, 2011)


To offer more details on the present and future of smart coatings in Asia, CMT’s 12th Asia Coatings Markets conference presents Mr. Jeremy Rowe, Managing Director, South East Asia & Pacific, with Akzo Nobel Paint South East Asia & Pacifics.


Consumers today not only demand high-quality but also environmentally-friendly paints and coatings. To analyze this, we have invited Mr. Jerry Goei, President Director, PT. ICI Paints Indonesia, an entity of AkzoNobel who will touch upon how the coatings industry has to evolve to meet the requirements of increasingly environmentally aware consumers.

Indonesia has kick started the MP3EI (Master Plan for the Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesian Economic Growth) and is set to spend Rp 4,000 trillion over the next 14 years to boost infrastructure. This year alone, Rp 190 trillion will be spent on various infrastructure and upgrading projects in an effort to expand and accelerate the Indonesian economy. 19 projects have already been inaugurated up to June 2011 which include the Rp 1.2 trillion expansion of Bali’s Ngurah Rai airport, a floating storage and gas project unit in West Java valued at Rp 500 billion and the construction of 3 tanker ships in Surabaya and Lampung worth Rp 109.49 billion. Another 63 projects will be inaugurated by the end of the year.


This master plan is set to catapult Indonesia into one of the world’s biggest economies by 2025 alongside Brazil, Russia, India and China.


In light of the above, CMT’s 12th Asia Coatings Market conference, to be held in Jakarta on 2-3 November, 2011, comes at an opportune time and will be of strategic importance to the coatings industry. From the latest offerings in eco-friendliness to key markets focus (China, Indonesia, India and Vietnam), this conference will highlight the challenges, opportunities and trends enveloping the coatings industry in Asia today.
