How long is the way of global waterborne coatings?
In recent years, China has also issued many important environmental protection regulations and implementation standards for the research, development and production of waterborne coatings.
Recently, according to the new global industrial coatings market analysis report released by grand view research, the global solvent products account for more than 75% of the global industrial coatings. The appearance of this data makes people exclaim that foreign waterborne coatings have been popularized for a long time. In recent years, China has been promoting waterborne coatings. In addition to the serious haze and urgent need for rectification and environmental protection in China, there is another very important reason, that is, currently, foreign waterborne coatings have accounted for 70% - 80%. Because of this, China has actually lagged behind a lot. We should catch up with the pace of foreign countries and accelerate the pace of water-based coatings. However, such oral data are often untrue, and most of them are just false. Of course, the data of "70% ～ 80%" is not out of thin air. The insiders point out that the "70% ～ 80%" water-based coating refers to the field of building coating, and the field of building coating itself is the water-based coating with a large share. Therefore, there is no saying that efforts are made to promote this "water-based coating". At present, the water-based paint in China refers to "water-based wood paint". As wood paint and furniture paint belong to the category of industrial coatings, according to the author, industrial coatings can be divided into water-based coatings, solvent based coatings and powder coatings, among which solvent based coatings still occupy the leading position in the global industrial coating technology, and the proportion reaches more than 75% of the total. Not only at home, but also in the process of improving the relevant laws and regulations that all countries in the world require to reduce VOC emissions. Among them, waterborne coatings play an important role. Of course, the technological progress of solvent based coatings and powder coatings will also play an essential role in the process of increasing the market share of industrial coatings. The moon in foreign countries is relatively round. When promoting waterborne coatings, Chinese people always like to compare foreign countries with ourselves. But in fact, how to reduce VOC emissions and how to better promote water-based coatings is a global problem. According to relevant reports, the development of water-based coatings is a very important issue in developed countries around the world. For example, the development of waterborne coatings in the United States accounts for more than 50% of the total coatings development, while the development of waterborne coatings accounts for 20% of the total coatings development. From the 21st century, Japan began to pay attention to the development of water-based coatings for environment-friendly coatings. In recent years, China has also issued many important environmental protection regulations and implementation standards for the research, development and production of waterborne coatings. In 2015, China began to collect the paint consumption tax and the "pollution discharge fee" of the furniture industry. These two environmental protection policies are directly aimed at the current serious pollution of the paint and furniture industries. They should focus on both, control the upstream and downstream together, and expand the scope of application of waterborne coatings in industrial coatings. Of course, it is impossible to accomplish such a arduous task only by policy constraints. It is more important to change the "difficult to promote" situation of water-based coating from production technology, painting and other aspects.
