These are increasingly being used in automotive, engineering and consumer durable sectors. Thus, economic development has a direct bearing on the paint industry. The paint industry is constantly upgrading its technology to meet the changing needs of the consumers.

The industry is broadly divided into two segments-decorative and industrial paints. The decorative paints which accounts for 75 per cent of the organized sector, are meant to protect valuable assets like buildings. This market is highly price sensitive. The industrial paints accounts for the rest 25 per cent share and are meant to protect white goods appliances from corrosion.

The size of the paints industry in India is around Rs 95 billion. The current demand is estimated at 650,000 tonnes per annum. This industry is seasonal in nature. There are around 26 paint units in the organized sector, accounting for around 65 per cent of the total output. The unorganized sector has about 2000 units. The total output at present is of the order of 4.5 lakh tonnes.

Major players in this sector includes Asian paints which has a market share of 44 per cent, followed by Kansai Nerolac 20 per cent, Berger paints 17 per cent, ICI 12 per cent and Shalimar paints 4.4 per cent and others 2.6 per cent. Today a number of foreign players have subsidiaries in India. Berger is strong in decorative segment and is the leader in protective coatings. Kansai Nerolac is the leading player in automotive OEM finishes and powder coatings. ICI (India) is a major player in decorative emulsion segment. The industrial paints market is valued at Rs 21 billion.

India’s paint industry has a bright future. The Indian paints market has the potential to grow over the next decade at 15 to 20 per cent per annum owing to more investments in the housing segment and improving infrastructure ,high  growth in the Indian automobile industry , etc. which in turn would mean greater demand for paints, as most people aspire for better lifestyle. Moreover the per capita consumption is also low. The demand for premium-category paints is likely to increase with rise in construction of commercial infrastructure. The players with aggressive marketing strategies and comprehensive product portfolios will grow at a faster rate. The emerging trends in technology and marketing indicate that the industry is likely to consolidate in the coming years with industry leaders improving their market share.

WATER-BASED LACQUERS - Manufacturing Plant, Detailed Project Report, Profile, Business Plan, Industry Trends, Market Research, Survey, Manufacturing Process, Machinery, Raw Materials, Feasibility Study, Investment Opportunities, Cost and Revenue

Water-based lacquers are wood finishing lacquers which are less toxic and more environmentally friendly. Lacquer is considered by many to be one of the best all around finishes for wood & other substrate. Today, lacquer refers to any finishing product that dries primarily by solvent evaporation. The emergence of water based lacquer finishes in the last decade, or so has been in response to the hazards associated with the conventional solvent-based lacquers. The solvents used to dissolve the lacquer resins & to thin the material for spraying are flammable & toxic to humans. So, switching to water based finishes has become a good alternation. Water based lacquers are very different products from solvent based lacquers. The water based lacquers finish is the most economical way to meet the environmental legislation. Due to health risks and environmental considerations involved in the use of solvent-based lacquers, the water based lacquers came into existence. These lacquers are considerably less toxic and more environmentally friendly, and in many cases, produce acceptable results. More and more water-based colored lacquers are replacing solvent-based clear and colored lacquers in under hood and interior applications in the automobile and other similar industrial applications. Water based lacquers are used extensively in wood furniture finishing as well. All water-based finishes do contain an organic solvent or a combination of solvents. However, the amounts are significantly less than in solvent based finishes, usually less than 10% by volume. Some water-based lacquers in fact contain less than 2% by volume. These solvents are an essential component for film formation. The majority of water-based finishes by definition are lacquers because they dry by solvent evaporation. Like any other lacquer, they are composed of resins & solvents. But most of the harmful & polluting solvents have been replaced by water, which is normally not a compatible solvent for any of the resins. To get water to become compatible with the resins, other chemicals are added to create an emulsion, a chemical term for a mixture of two substances that normally do not mix with each other. The chemicals ensure that the resin is evenly dispersed in the liquid carrier; chemicals called surfactants keep the non-compatible resins & water in a homogenous emulsion & improve the blowout of the finish. Surfactants are similar to soaps & create bubbles when the lacquer is applied. Deformers are added to minimize the formation of bubbles. Water is the carrier used in water-based lacquers; it is what makes these products less hazardous & nonflammable. Water-based finishes are very flexible and durable. The ability of a coating to "burn in" or "bite" into the coating underneath it is a means of that coating gripping itself to the undercoating is in a chemical way, not by mechanical means. The Indian paint industry is known for its competitiveness and also has a wide range of products. The fact that the medium to large-scale companies has over the last two decades been changing rankings is testimony to the competitive nature of the industry. Today there are about 20 units registered with the DGTD. These constitute the organized sector of the paint industry. They account for about 50 per cent of the volume and two - thirds of the value of production. The balance production is attributable to about 900 units. Water-based lacquers are very promising set of finishes. The water-based lacquers finishes are equal to the solvent-based finishes, and superior in some ways. It is a best alternative finishes with reduced VOC (volatile organic content). There will be a good demand for this product in the coming years. Any new entrepreneur venture in this field will be successful.

COATING OF TITANIUM DIOXIDE ON PLASTIC SURFACES - Manufacturing Plant, Detailed Project Report, Profile, Business Plan, Industry Trends, Market Research, Survey, Manufacturing Process, Machinery, Raw Materials, Feasibility Study, Investment Opportunities

Plastics are used in virtually all sectors of industry, from the manufacture of mobile phones to automotive engineering. Most plastics are now coated for protection against weathering, attack by solvents and scratching, as well as for decorative reasons. Surface coating of plastic is defined as the process of applying coatings to plastic surface parts to improve the appearance of the surface, to protect the surface from physical or chemical stress, and or to attenuate electromagnetic interference or radio frequency interference that would otherwise pass through plastic housings. Plastic are synthetic polymers formed into panels, housings, bases, covers, or other business machine components. The business machines category includes items such as typewriters, electronic computing devices, calculating and accounting machines, telephone and telegraph equipment, photocopiers, and miscellaneous office machines. Surfaces in general are contaminated by dust, smoke, exhaust gas, organics, bacteria, mold, ultraviolet degradation etc. Various solutions have been proposed to address such surfaces contamination problems. Surface coating techniques using nanoproducts are rapidly advancing globally. Nanotechnology can deliver micro coatings onto surfaces exhibiting different properties. Nanotechnology is attracting a lot of attention from governments, academia and industry. A nanometer is a million times smaller than a millimeter and 10,000 times smaller than anything the human eye can see. Nanoparticles offer huge amounts of surface area. As the object size gets smaller, the surface area to volume ratio becomes larger. Nanoparticles surfaces act as excellent catalyst sites and less amount of material is needed for producing the same effect thus leading to high efficiency, less toxicity, less weight, and/or less costs. The particle size of nano titanium dioxide manufactured worldwide varies from 20 to 50 nanometers. The individual particles are not visible to naked eye, while agglomerates of particles are visible. At the same time, pigmentory titanium dioxide has particle size in the range of 250 and 350 nanometers. The pigmentory titanium dioxide absorbs ultra-violet light and reflects visible light, while the nano particles not only reflects visible light, but effectively transmit visible wave length through the crystals. The nano titanium dioxide was especially useful for automotive coatings when used with pigments like aluminium flakes, which is the most widely used pigment in automobile industry for imparting a metallic look to coatings and also as antimicrobial coatings on plastic surfaces. Nanotechnology and nonmaterial for the industry are at a beginning stage in India but in developed countries this is not a new concept. There is an immense scope and potential in this field. New entrepreneurs should explore and venture into this field.

SYNTHETIC IRON OXIDE FROM IRON OXIDE LIQUOR/SLUDGE BY LAUX PROCESS (RED, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE) - Manufacturing Plant, Detailed Project Report, Profile, Business Plan, Industry Trends, Market Research, Survey, Manufacturing Process, Machinery, Raw Materials

Pigments are a group of insoluble colorants in form of finely ground solid particles that are mixed with a liquid to be applied in printing inks, oil and water based paints and plastics. There are two major types of pigments- organic and inorganic. Organic ones are obtained widely from the plant and animal kingdoms. They contain carbon in them. They are also produced synthetically through complex carbon-containing chemistry involving different materials such as petroleum, coal tar and natural gas. Inorganic Pigments are produced either from naturally mined materials such as sienna, umber and ochre or from synthetically manufactured materials like iron oxide, carbon black, etc. Sometimes they are produced by combining both of these processes. Synthetic red Iron Oxide Pigments were first made in a Laboratory setting by the 18th century. These pigments were given the name Mars Red. These pigments contained all the properties of their counterparts, i.e. Natural Iron Oxide Pigments. These properties included durability, permanence etc. From 19th century, the manufacturing of these synthetic iron oxide pigments started on regular basic. Gradually, the improvements have been taken place with every production process. In the early 1920, the yellow synthetic iron oxide pigments (Mars Yellow) were produced for the first time. Vital improvement processes have been taking place along with its production. By modifying the manufacturing processes of Mars Red and Mars Yellow, the manufacturing process of Brown Iron Oxide Pigments has been evolved. The common colors of these pigments are orange, red brown and yellow. Basic chemicals are used for manufacturing of synthetic iron oxide pigments. To produce synthetic iron oxide pigments, iron salts or iron compounds are decomposed. By precipitating of iron salts and reducing the organic compounds by iron, pigments of synthetic iron oxide can be prepared. The total volume of global market for inorganic, organic and special pigments was approximately 7.4 million tons in 2006. This volume will rise to 9.8 million tons by 2016 which is growing at a rate of 2.9% pa. Today, there is a lot of varieties of Synthetic Iron Oxide Pigments are available in the market. These synthetic pigments are found in different colors, having superior uniformity, excellent quality and high purity. The synthetic iron oxide pigments are best for tile, paper, paint, primer. Over the years, the market of iron oxide has grown at a composite rate of 2-4% per year, and even though there have been exponential ups & downs, this rate have been steady. These iron oxide pigments are extensively used for fulfilling the requirements of fields like construction, coatings, ceramics, paint, ink, rubber, plastics, and cosmetics and the major markets for colors and pigments include textiles, printing inks, plastics, paints and coatings.
