Bio-based paints & coatings offer superiority over conventional oil-based paints & coatings such as reduced emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), lesser toxicity and biodegradability. Bio-based paints & coatings contain plant-based raw materials such as corn starch, soy oil and coconut oil as resins. These resins provide properties like water resistance and durability to the paints & coatings. Bio-based paints & coatings are increasingly being used in construction and transportation industries due to stringent environmental norms. The global bio-based paints & coatings market is estimated to be valued at US$ 12.59 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 11% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.


Market key trends:

The extensive use of bio-based resins derived from plant and vegetable sources such as soybean oil, corn starch and vegetable glycerols is a key trend driving the growth of the global bio-based paints & coatings market. The plant-derived resins offer advantages like lesser VOC emissions, reduced toxicity and biodegradability over petroleum-based resins. This makes bio-based resins an attractive sustainable alternative for manufacturers. Also, supportive government policies and regulations regarding VOC emission control are boosting adoption of bio-based paints & coatings especially in North America and Europe. Large paints & coatings manufacturers are focusing on development of new product lines containing high proportion of bio-based content to cater to the growing demand.
