May 22, 2020 (Market Insight Reports) --

Global nitrocellulose market size will be worth more than US$1.2 billion by 2025, with robust demand for high-quality automotive paints and leather products, particularly in developing regions.

It is a derivative of natural cellulose which finds use in a diverse set of applications ranging from automotive paints to wood coatings, printing inks, and leather finishes. Excellent chemical properties and its ability to offer a smooth finish and attractive aesthetic appearance make cellulose nitrate the material of choice in these applications, as well as countless other use-cases.

Globalization of the automotive marketplace, a changing and expanding customer base, and growing expectations for greater functionality and performance are likely to influence upcoming trends in color development for automotive paints. The future of vehicle paints looks promising, with growing customer inclination towards customized colors, and a solid demand for novel color solutions.

Nitrocellulose, on account of its high nitrogen content, is prominently used in the production of automotive paint formulations. Its compatibility with repair and refinish formulations further increases its applicability in the nitrocellulose market. Today, consumers are opting for nano paints and other contemporary products.

Considering recent trends in automotive sales, especially passenger vehicles, nitrocellulose manufacturers are bound to witness substantial opportunities from the automotive paints and coatings industry. Although a global outbreak of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 has slowed down auto production and sales, the future demand for vehicles has kept the industry hopeful of a revival.

Cellulose nitrate is broadly used as a base material for various coatings due to its ability to accentuate wood grain, which makes it suitable for application on school furniture. In addition, nitrocellulose-based coatings are prominently used in residential and commercial applications to enhance the aesthetic appeal of office and home furniture.

Impact of COVID-19 outbreak in 2020

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic is impacting the global economy in numerous ways. The outbreak has directly affected production and demand by creating supply chain and market disruption. Most manufacturing industries, including automotive paints and leather industries have temporarily paused their production activities.

However, substantial demand for packaged goods, including packaged foods and beverages, during the pandemic will augment nitrocellulose market share in the future.
