Alkyd surface coatings are the most highly consumed types of coatings used worldwide, despite the increasing use of other film formers. These coatings can be tailored to meet a variety of end-use requirements through the choice and ratio of reactants and/or modifiers. Alkyd resins are polyester-based materials that are typically modified with oil or fatty acids. They are classified as drying, semi-drying, and non-drying according to their fatty acid type added to the backbone; and as short oil, medium oil, and long oil according to the content of fatty acid.

Low cost of alkyd resins, formulation flexibility, and familiar utility to end users drive the alkyd coatings market. The development of better film-forming agents and environmental restraints on the use of solvent-borne coatings restrict the market growth. Rise in investments in the industrial sector and preference towards special-purpose coatings are the key opportunities in the industry.

The report segments the global alkyd coatings market based on resin type, end-use, formulation, and geography. Based on resin type, the market is classified into non-drying, drying, and semi-drying alkyd resins. The end use of these resins include architecture, consumer goods, transportation, industrial, special-purpose coatings, and others. On the basis of formulation, the market is categorized into high-solids alkyds, waterborne alkyds, modifying alkyds, solvent-borne coatings, powder coatings, and others. Geographically, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
