Appliances: The leading end-use industry segment of the powder coatings market Appliances are an essential part of our everyday life. Cookers, freezers, radiators, washing machines, air conditioning, heating, and others should be as smart in their looks as they are in their functionality. Consumer goods and appliances are significant end users of powder coatings. Ask for PDF of the Report at http://www.marketsandmarkets.com/pdfdownload.asp?id=151375565 The appliance industry is the largest market for thermosetting powders. The industry benefits from the use of powder coatings in applications that require the combination of appearance and resistance to abrasion, chemicals, and temperature cycling. The appliance industry uses powder coatings on front and side panels of refrigerators, dryer drums, air-conditioner cabinets, washer tops and lids, water heaters, dishwasher racks, freezer cabinets, and cracks of microwave ovens. Increase in per capita income and consumer spending, changing consumer preferences, and growing need for automation and technology advancement are the key factors driving the powder coatings market. Thermoset: The fastest-growing resin type segment of the powder coatings market Thermoset is projected to be the fastest-growing resin type segment of the Powder Coatings Market. Thermoset coating has a different chemical structure from that of other basic resins. After curing, a thermoset coating remains thermally stable, meaning it cannot be melted back into liquid form. The newly formed materials are heat stable and will not soften back to liquid on further exposure to heat. Thermoset powder coating systems offer broad formulation flexibility. They are very durable and widely used in both decorative and functional applications. Due to the rheological characteristics of these resin systems, they can produce thin paint-like surface coatings with properties equivalent and sometimes superior to the coatings produced by the liquid compliance technologies. Most thermoset powders can provide a high level of corrosion, temperature, and impact resistance. To achieve satisfactory coating results, it is also necessary to match the thermoset formulation with the product's intended corrosion resistance, curing cycle, texture, and aesthetic properties. The demand for this resin has been increasing very rapidly since the last two years in the appliances sector. The powder coatings industry in the Asia-Pacific region is witnessing a phase of rapid transformation and growth, mainly driven by stable economic growth and infrastructure development. This region is a global sourcing hub for the key companies owing to the rapidly increasing demand for powder coatings. Healthy economic growth, changing consumer preferences, improvement in living standards, and increased spending on infrastructure are expected to drive the powder coatings market in this region. The key players in this market are AkzoNobel N.V.

GLEN MILLS, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dr. Chen Ling, Senior Scientist at Axalta Coating Systems (NYSE: AXTA), a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, will present new developments in the detection and characterization of chemical molecule migrations in multi-layer automotive coatings at the PITTCON Conference and Expo 2017. Dr. Ling’s presentation titled, Application of ATR-FTIR Microspectroscopy in Understanding Interlayer Migration of Automotive Coatings, is at 10 a.m. on March 8, on the Exposition Floor, Section 2030, Aisle 2500-2600, at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Ling’s presentation will explore the new method she and her team have developed to better understand the chemical migration in a wet-on-wet coating process. Automotive coatings typically consist of multiple layers, individually sprayed and dried before another layer is applied. However, in a wet-on-wet coating process, a second layer is applied before the first layer is dry, and multiple layers are dried with a single bake, which can result in reduced energy consumption and increased manufacturing productivity. “Our new method allows us to really zoom in to track and characterize the chemical migrations across the multiple coating layers produced in the wet-on-wet process. Specifically, we can characterize migrations of chemical molecules at a high resolution of about two micrometers, which is about one hundredth the width of a human hair,” said Dr. Ling. “Results from our tests can help us to better understand the relationship between the chemical migration and the overall coating appearance, which can lead to the development of improved coatings and coating processes for our customers.” “Axalta is committed to meeting customers’ needs through technical development and innovation,” said Dr. Brian Priore, Research Manager for Analytical and Weathering Technologies, Axalta Coating Systems. “Analytical technology is one of Axalta’s core strengths that enables us to explore new areas to improve products and services. The developments by Dr. Ling and her team are examples of Axalta’s commitment to meet customers’ needs by supporting the continued growth of highly productive and more environmentally sustainable processes with reduced energy consumption like wet-on-wet coating applications.” PITTCON attracts researchers and experts in laboratory sciences from industry, academic and government institutions around the globe and will take place March 5-9, 2017.
