The global low VOC coating additives market, along with its applications, has witnessed a moderate growth for the past few years and this growth is estimated to increase in the coming years. The properties such as excellent performance such as high gloss, stable colour, good surface appearance and  low environmental footprint will be the key influencing factors for the global  low VOC coating additives with increase the importance of additives in  coatings formulation.

The  low VOC coating additives market is experiencing slow to moderate growth which is expected to continue in the near future, mainly driven by the highly growing Asia-Pacific, and RoW regions. Moderate amount of new product developments and acquisitions are made by different market players to serve the applications in the future. The Asia-Pacific region is the major  low VOC coating additives market that accounted for about more than one third of market demand by volume and value of the total global demand in 2014.

Significant demand of the total  low VOC coating additives was from the  the architectural coatings application in the  low VOC coating additive industry in 2014. The growth of the automotive and packaging coatings applications is also driving the growth for  low VOC coating additives.

The drivers of the  low VOC coating additive industry is due to tightening environmental regulations, formulators are forced to reduce the VOC content in their products. This has caused a shift towards the use of water-borne or powder coatings. The demand for building and construction is increasing in China, which is one of drivers for the  low VOC coating additive market in Asia-Pacific.

This study basically aims to estimate the global market of  low VOC coating additives for 2015 and to project its demand till 2020.

The low-VOC coating additives market is estimated to reach around $5.8 billion by value in 2020, signifying a firm CAGR of around 5.78% between 2015 and 2020.

The global low-VOC coating additives market, along with its applications, showed a moderate growth in the past few years and is estimated to continue in the coming years. An increase in the demand in architectural coatings, automotive coatings and industrial coatings and other applications will be the key influencing factors for the global low-VOC coating additives market. With the tightening environmental regulations, formulators are forced to reduce the VOC content in their products. This has caused a shift towards the use of water-borne or powder coatings, wherever it is possible which eventually drive the low-VOC coatings market.

Currently, the Asia-Pacific region is the largest consumer of  low-VOC coating additives and is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR. The countries such as China, Japan, and India is expected to lead the Asia-Pacific  low-VOC coating additives market, with China having the largest share in the regional volumetric consumption of  low-VOC coating additives. The market volume of  low-VOC coating additives is comparatively low in the RoW region, but the estimated growth for the region is second highest after Asia-Pacific.

The rise of water based coating has shrunk the solvent market by which many players have shifted at least half of their marketing spending from solvent bornel to water borne and powder based over the last few years.

The North America and the Europe regions are the most active markets in terms of strategic initiatives, owing to their market demands. The automotive and architectural application has led the rapid growth in the  low-VOC coating additives market.

The significant  low-VOC coating additives manufacturers are Alatana AG (Germany), Air products (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), Eastman Chemical Company (U.S.), Elementis PLC (U.K.), Huntsman Corporation (U.S.), Dow (U.S.), Dupont (U.S.), Om Group Inc.(U.S.), Allnex (Belgium).
