Market Size & Trends

The global electrical insulation coatings market size was valued at USD 2.6 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.7% from 2023 to 2030. Rising electricity demand has resulted in upcoming projects focused on capacity expansions, along with increasing investment in power generation projects. Positive growth of the global transmission and distribution market is another factor anticipated to play a vital role in supporting the growth. Unstable raw material costs and high cost of formulations are expected to pose a major challenge to market participants. China is a major producer of resin as well as powder coatings. Slow economic growth, regulations related to volatile organic compounds, and lack of government support are some of the key factors that have affected the supply of quality raw materials from China. These factors are likely to result in higher production costs of enamels.

U.S. electrical insulation coatings market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The market is highly competitive due to the presence of a large number of industry participants. Divestiture of the coatings businesses by key market players is a major trend witnessed throughout the industry. Uncertain economic conditions and stringent regulations related to volatile organic compound emissions are likely to pose a major challenge to the majority of industry participants.

Market players are focusing on the development of various types of coatings, depending upon the application, dielectric properties desired, aesthetics, color, and regulatory compliance. Thus, developing new formulations that suit specific applications results in a high cost of formulation.

As raw material cost plays a key role in dictating the overall cost of coating formulation, coating formulators opt for extender pigments to cope with unstable raw material costs. Extender pigments include low-priced fillers that help reduce the cost of coatings by increasing coating volume with minimal impact on coating performance.

Product Insights

The liquid segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 56.1% in 2022. Electrical insulation coatings are largely available in liquid form. Liquid coatings offer ease of application, enabling efficient and consistent coverage on various surfaces. Their fluidity allows for seamless adhesion, reducing the risk of air gaps and ensuring better electrical insulation performance. However, the liquid-based coating is anticipated to lose its market share to powdered-based formulations over the forecast period owing to factors such as faster curing time, no requirement for solvents, and their ability to emit zero volatile organic compounds.

The powder segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period. Powder coatings offer superior durability and resistance to wear, making them ideal for applications in harsh environments. Additionally, they provide enhanced thickness, enabling better insulation performance. Epoxies are used in powdered as well as resin forms. Due to high dielectric properties, epoxy powder coatings help in negating high voltage spikes, especially when used in cable insulations.

Raw Material Insights

The epoxy segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 51.7% in 2022 and is estimated to register the fastest CAGR of 5.0% over the forecast period. This raw material is known to have excellent dielectric properties, dimensional stability, and good shock, and vibration resistance. Favorable properties such as high thermal stability, mechanical strength, moisture resistivity, adhesion, and electrical, mechanical, and heat resistance make them suitable for various applications.

Global electrical insulation coatings market share and size, 2022

The Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) segment held a significant revenue market share in 2022. PTFEis another major raw material. China is a key player in the PTFE market. Government support for PTFE resin manufacturers has been declining, which may affect segment growth in the coming years.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest revenue share of 51.6% in 2022 and is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period. This can be attributed to rapid urbanization, increasing investment in infrastructure development, and robust economic growth in India and China. The easy availability of raw materials, particularly in China, is expected to increase the demand.

Electrical Insulation Coatings Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

Europe held a significant revenue share in 2022. The regional market is expected to witness slow growth over the forecast period owing to strict regulations related to the emission of volatile organic compounds. In April 2022, PPG announced the acquisition of the powder coatings manufacturing business from the Italy-based company Arsonsisi. The acquisition will provide PPG with a highly automated powder manufacturing plant in Verbania, Italy that is capable of producing both small and big batches.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The global electrical insulation coatings market is highly competitive due to the presence of a large number of industry participants. Divestiture of these businesses mainly to focus on their core competencies is a key trend followed by major corporations across the industry.

The threat of substitutes is expected to be moderate as few companies have introduced insulation films to gain a competitive edge. Factors such as high integration throughout the value chain and global presence have helped these companies to expand their product portfolio, thus giving them a competitive advantage over other players.
