Aerosol Paints Market Drivers

Stringent Government Regulations

VOCs are chemicals found in solvent-based and in small quantities in many water-based paints. Once applied, the VOCs evaporate and it is because of this transfer painted areas should be ventilated. Excessive exposure to VOCs can have negative effects on health and the environment. VOCs are dangerous to air quality because when they react with nitrogen oxide under UV radiation, ground-level ozone is formed. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that VOCs often cause eye, nose, and throat irritation, nausea, and can also damage the liver, kidney, and central nervous system. The EPA regulates VOCs on the national level, but recently there have been pushes by some states and counties to impose even stricter VOC limits. In the European Union, the Paints Directive sets out maximum VOC content limit values for paints and varnishes in certain applications. Most of the aerosol paints used nowadays have low VOC or are zero VOC. These government regulations drive the growth of the aerosol paints market.

Green buildings

In the construction industry the latest trend is green buildings. A green building is a building that, in its design, construction or operation, reduces or eliminates negative impacts, and can create positive impacts, on the climate and natural environment. For construction of a green building, materials that are non-toxic, ethical and sustainable are used. Aerosol paint manufacturers have made it a priority to reduce the amount of solvent used in paint formulations in keeping with the VOC standards. Some use sustainable raw materials in many of their spray paints to make them more eco-friendly. According to a global green building survey, US currently holds the number one position overall, with a total of 124,212 Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) projects. LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership and provides a framework for healthy, highly efficient, cost-saving green buildings. Hence with the growing interest in green buildings, the market for aerosol paints is also expected to grow.
