    Segments' Analysis

    By Coating Type

    The release coatings market is segmented based on coating type as silicone and non-silicone. Silicone is projected to remain the largest segment in the release coatings market during the forecast period. It is also projected to grow at a faster rate during the forecast period. Silicone-release coatings are relatively inexpensive and offer better resistance to chemicals, abrasion, and moisture. It is gaining traction in many applications, such as barcode labels, diaper tabs, packaging tapes, and postage stamps.

    By Formulation Type

    The market is further segmented based on formulation type as solvent-based, water-based, emulsions, and others. The solvent is the most commonly used formulation type in release coatings; however, there would be a continuous shift from solvent-based to water-based, driven by safety, health, and environmental regulations. The usage of different release coating formations varies from region to region. For instance, water-based release coatings dominate North America and Europe, whereas solvent-based dominate Asia-Pacific.

    By Application Type

    The market is also segmented based on application type as labels, graphical, film & tapes, hygiene, and others. The label is projected to remain the most dominant application type in the global release coatings market during the forecast period, driven by the increasing use of self-adhesive labels in packaging applications. The label segment is also the fastest-growing application type in the release coatings market, driven by an increasing preference in the fast-moving consumer goods and packaging industries.

    By End-Use Industry Type

    The market is segmented based on end-use industry type as transportation, aerospace & defense, medical, food & bakery, packaging, pulp & paper, and others. Packaging is expected to remain the largest end-use industry for release coatings during the forecast period, whereas medical is expected to witness the fastest growth in the same period. The high use of release coatings in healthcare products and the increasing use of release coatings in surgical and analytical instruments will drive the demand for it in the medical industry.

    Regional Insights

    Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market during the forecast period. It alone occupied more than 50% of the release coatings market in 2021. The region is also expected to witness the highest growth over the next five years. China, Japan, Korea, India, and Taiwan are acting as the growth engines of the Asia-Pacific release coatings market. There would be a good shift from solvent-based to water-based release coatings in the Asia-Pacific region in the same period.
