In recent years, the haze has brought great harm to people across the country, and the state has sent environmental protection inspection teams to inspect polluting enterprises. Under this background, the environmental protection storm has been blowing in various industries. Under the increasingly stringent environmental protection law enforcement, the development of traditional paint enterprises has been in jeopardy, and the crisis must be dealt with through transformation.
The arrival of environmental protection storm makes more and more traditional enterprises realize that, in this kind of environment, water-based production is the best destination. Then they are no longer wait-and-see, but agree the foreground that sees waterborne coating, turn war in succession "waterborne market". The state policy strongly supports the waterborne coating and the enterprise is optimistic about the waterborne coating, which will be a huge driving force for the development of the waterborne coating industry in China.
Actually, the development of waterborne coating is not a single day, review the development history of waterborne coating in Europe and America and other countries, policy and regulation played a crucial role in it, followed by the introduction of strict policies and regulations to force many coating enterprises have to carry out industrial upgrading, embark on the road of waterborne coating. Therefore, perfect policies and regulations can effectively promote the process of waterborne coatings, which can make coating enterprises truly attach importance to the development of waterborne coatings. China's environmental protection regulations (VOC emission requirements) have promoted the development of environmental protection coatings in recent years. According to the forecast of relevant industry association, 57% of paint output will be environmental protection paint by 2020. There are even reports that the waterborne coating market will reach $75 billion by 2020.
According to the output of guangdong alone, during the 13th five-year plan period, the total production of coating in guangdong will reach 4 million tons by 2020, and the total output value will be about 100 billion yuan. Among them, the high performance environmental protection coating will achieve the coating production 80%.
However, the water - based degree of subdivision of different coatings is very different at present.
We find that the degree of waterborne coating is very low in the field of engineering machinery. In 2015, the proportion of water-borne coatings in the field of construction machinery (including agricultural machinery and forklift) was only 1.2%. It is estimated that the compound growth rate of sales in 2015-2020 is only +3.8%, mainly due to the high price of water-based coatings and the high requirements of coating technology.
And the waterborne property of industrial wood lacquer field is good. China's industrial water - based wood coatings sales growth faster than traditional wood coatings. From 2014 to 2017, the market of industrial water-borne wood coatings in China steadily increased, and the compound growth rate of sales and sales reached +29.8% and +27.2%, respectively. The popularity of waterborne coating mainly comes from the government's environmental protection policy, the improvement of consumers' environmental protection awareness and the rapid growth of local waterborne coating enterprises.
With the enhancement of people's awareness of environmental protection, water-based coatings will be more widely used, and the research and development of water-based coatings has great economic and social benefits. In the future, it is urgent to develop basic research to reduce the construction difficulty and improve the performance of waterborne coatings. Facing the increasingly strict environmental protection policy, no matter be paint raw material supplier, still be paint production enterprise, paint equipment production enterprise, centering on the environmental protection product such as waterborne coating quickens the transformation development, water borne coating will welcome big development.
