Construction paints and coatings increase the resistance of the various surfaces and prevent them from rust and weathering. Construction paints and coatings find applications in commercial windows, building panels, curtain walls, and even in the aviation and automotive sector. According to a research firm Allied Market Research, the global construction paints and coatings market is driven by factors such as increase in activities in civil construction and high demand for efficient paints. Moreover, the rising practice of green buildings and products such as nano-coatings and green coatings are expected to create a new trend in the market.
It is now common knowledge that lead-based paint and coatings containing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are not best for the environment. Today, coatings with minimum or no VOCs and unpleasant odors and that are eco-friendly are preferred.
