Market Dynamics:


  • Growing awareness about environmental issues and the need for sustainable solutions are driving the demand for bio-based coatings.

  • The abundant availability of renewable resources used in bio-based coatings production supports market expansion.

The availability of abundant renewable resources is pivotal in propelling the growth of the bio-based coatings market. With ample sources such as plant-based oils and biomass, manufacturers can sustainably produce coatings, meeting rising demand while reducing environmental impact. This ready availability not only facilitates market expansion but also aligns with global sustainability goals, driving adoption and innovation in eco-friendly coating solutions.


  • Higher production costs associated with bio-based coatings compared to conventional alternatives


  • Growing application areas such as automotive, construction, and packaging offer significant opportunities for the bio-based coatings market to expand its presence.

  • Increasing consumer preference for products with lower environmental impact boosts the adoption of bio-based coatings.

The Bio-Based Coatings Market experiences significant growth due to heightened consumer awareness and preference for environmentally friendly products. As consumers increasingly prioritize sustainability, they seek out coatings that offer lower environmental impact, thus driving the demand for bio-based alternatives. This consumer-driven shift not only fuels adoption but also incentivizes companies to innovate and expand their bio-based coatings offerings, contributing to market expansion.


  • Lack of awareness associated with bio-based related products


The Russia-Ukraine conflict may have an impact on the bio-based coatings market, and it could affect global supply chains and raw material availability. Russia and Ukraine both contribute to the manufacturing of bio-based feedstocks used in coatings. The chemical industry has a strong link with Russia. In 2021, Russia received 2.4% of chemical exports, valued at approximately $6 billion. Any disruptions in the supply chain could cause shortages and cost increases in the bio-based coatings market. Geopolitical conflicts may also cause market uncertainty, impacting investment decisions and even changing demand patterns. The war will have a limited direct impact on the chemical industry, Russia, accounts for less than 10% of the company's overall sales.

Impact of Economic Downturn:

During economic downturns, the bio-based coatings market faces numerous challenges, including reduced demand from industries, constrained budgets prompting a preference for cheaper alternatives, and potential disruptions in the supply chain. The coatings industry encountered difficulties in 2022 due to rising energy costs, inflated raw material prices, shortages in raw materials, and increasing inflationary pressures. Amidst urgent financial concerns, there is a tendency for businesses to prioritize immediate cost savings over sustainability initiatives, potentially hindering the growth of the bio-based coatings market. Despite attempts by paint companies to mitigate rising expenses, profitability has been impacted, with profit margins declining to modest levels. Although government incentives and policies may offer support, the delayed adoption of bio-based coatings due to concerns regarding performance variability and unfamiliarity may persist as businesses adopt a more risk-averse stance.

16. Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
