Emerging Opportunities within the Sustainable Coatings Market      


Due to the coronavirus pandemic and its related travel policies, we are transforming the 20th Asia Coatings Markets into a virtual event. Be assured that this virtual event will deliver the exceptional content and quality our events are always known for.

COVID-19 has created an incredible combination of economic shocks, disruptions to physical industries, and changes to how public spaces and surfaces are perceived. The coatings industry and the industries it serves have all been affected. However, this crisis is not happening in a vacuum, and the coatings industry was already being transformed by a diverse set of megatrends, including the drive for sustainability, the emergence of digital tools, and long term shifts in consumer preferences. Players throughout the value chain will need to re-evaluate their near term strategies and long term R&D plans in response to these challenges.

Anti-microbial coatings have been rising and expected to worth US$7.36bn by 2025. Based on a recent market research report, the growth of this market is driven by the rising burden of healthcare-associated infections and contaminated drug recalls. Other factors include increasing awareness about anti-microbial coatings, funding from government and private organisations, demand for safer food packaging and many more.

Today, paint manufacturers are focusing on sustainability throughout the entire value chain which has expanded beyond reducing volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including waste minimization, process efficiency enhancement, use of renewable materials and much more.

Split into Two Half Day sessions, the conference covers Asia’s paint and coatings emerging trends and opportunities, latest advancements in coatings technology, new material innovations and applications, and many more.
