LONDON - Worldwide demand for powder coatings has increased over the last few decades, due in part to their lower environmental impact when compared to other coatings. At present, powder coatings are widely used in the automotive industry, for home appliances, and in architecture. Powder coatings’ share in terms of finished product amounted to approximately 20 percent in 2010, compared to eight percent 1995. In China, the powder coatings market share is estimated at 11 percent. However, powder coatings continue to gain popularity in the country. In 2012, China produced about 1.1 million metric tons of powder coatings, an increase of seven percent year-over-year. Major players, such as Huajia DuPont Chemical, Guangzhou Kinte Industrial and Anhui Meijia New Materials, dominate the local industry.
