Global nitrocellulose market is expected to reach USD 884.8 million by 2022, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Growth of paints and coatings industry on account of increasing construction spending, particularly in Asia Pacific, is expected to drive the global market. As nitrocellulose also finds application in leather coatings and furniture, trade development has also contributed towards market development. However, nitrocellulose has been facing a stiff competition in automotive coatings from its substitute products including acrylic enamel, acrylic lacquer and two-pack paint.
Printing inks was the leading application segment and accounted for over 26.7% of total nitrocellulose industry volume in 2014. Superior properties such as quick drying ability, good adhesion to the material and low reactivity to additives is expected to remain a key driving factor for this segment over the forecast period, with CAGR expected to be 6.2% from 2015 to 2022. Growing acceptance of flexographic printing across myriad end-use industries coupled with growing furniture and packaging industry is also likely to assist the global market growth.
