Emulsion Polymer Market Analysis By Product (Acrylics, Styrene- Butadiene Latex, And Vinyl Acetate Polymers), By Application (Painting & Coating, Adhesives, Paper & Paper Board Coatings) And Segment Forecasts To 2020

July 2014

Industry Insights Increasing environmental concerns and stringent regulations, various restrictions are being imposed on the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These restrictions have obligated the coating manufacturers to articulate coatings with zero or very low VOCs content. It led to initiation of emulsion polymerization into the global market and made its presence over a wide area. Emulsion polymerization technique produces high molecular weight polymers with little viscosity. However polymers can also be tailor made according to the usage, to display the desired morphology and composition. Increasing awareness in end users regarding side...

Aquaculture Market Analysis By Culture Environment (Fresh Water, Marine Water, Brackish Water), By Product (Carps, Crustaceans, Mackerel, Milkfish, Mollusks, Salmon, Sea bass, Sea bream, Trout) And Segment Forecasts To 2020

July 2014

Industry Insights Aquaculture is the farming process of aquatic organisms such as fish, mollusks, crustaceans and other aquatic flora and fauna species. Farming involves certain interventions in the rearing process such as feeding, regular stocking, protection from predators, etc to increase production. As per product requirements; fresh, marine and brackish water environments are some available options utilized for aquaculture. Market segmentation has been done on the basis of culture environment, product type and geography. Key drivers of this market are increasing awareness about various health benefits of seafood...

Powder Coatings Market Analysis By Application (Automotive, Consumer Goods, General Industry, Architectural, Furniture) And Segment Forecasts To 2020

April 2014

Industry Insights Powder coatings, as the name suggest is a form of paint in the powder form. Powder coatings are made by grinding a mixture of resins, pigments and curatives among others to from a powder and are then sprayed onto the surface to be coated. The surface is then heated in an oven which melts the powder, resulting in a smooth even coat. There are various technologies used to spray the powder onto the surface depending on the requirement of the application. Fluidized bed, electrostatic spray, electrostatic fluidized bed and powder curing are the most commonly used methods deployed for powder coatings. Thermosets and thermoplastics are the two...

Antimicrobial Coatings Market Analysis And Segment Forecasts To 2020

April 2014

Industry Insights Antimicrobial coatings are used to protect surfaces from micro-organisms including parasites, bacteria, germs and fungi. Initially introduced to inhibit the effect of micro-organisms in the surfaces to which they were applied to; increasing health concerns regarding the effect of such micro-organisms on human heath, have seen antimicrobial applications cover both human and surfaces. Growth of global medical device coatings market is expected to remain a key demand driver for antimicrobial coatings over the next six years. In addition, increasing market penetration for indoor air quality products is also expected to have a positive impact...

Intumescent Coatings Market Analysis, Market Size, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Competitive Strategies And Forecasts, 2014 To 2020

Intumescent coatings are a form of passive fire protection commonly used in the construction industry to increase the fire resistance of structural members, by up to one to three hours, as required by the structural fire design codes. These coatings provide protection owing to their properties of swelling in controlled manner to many times its original thickness with exposure to heat resulting in a carbonaceous char which acts as insulation. They are principally applied to structural elements that typically loose performance during a fire such as steel, wood and aluminium structures. These coatings delay the impact o fire on structural elements by a couple of hours providing time for evacuation and rescue operations.  ...
