India's Powder consumption in year financial year 2005-2006
(IPC exclusive)

With the  raw material prices stabalising, the powder prices too have now reached a standstill level, unlike the sudden rise in raw material last year which created an disturbance.
Based on the various resources we have referred to, and the discussions we have with powder manufacturers, we have arrive at final figure of  34,000 tons as the total powder produced and consumed by the Indian Powder  Coating Industry during the financial year 2005-2006.

While most of the manufacturers indicated the total figure to be around 20-25 thousand tons, our viewers vote pointed in the correct direction. The opinion poll on our website projected a very realistic picture of the market. See the poll results in the adjacent graph. 

Viewer may notice a large percentage (23.7 %) under the category of "Others". Neglected earlier, there are several small manufacturers  who might be producing a total of another 6000 tons of powder every year. Also added to it are about estimated 2000 tons of powder produced by a few companies who have avoided revealing there production figures due to certain policy matters. So a total of 8000 (23.7%) tons is put under the category of "Others"

Once again Polycoat powders continues to be the leader in the market by producing 4350 tons of powder. Congratulations Polycoat.  Amrit Rekhi of Polycoat said
"The Powder coating market has shown good growth last year. In the past white goods were the main drivers for growth however this trend has now changed and new growth drivers have evolved. The current market growth is being driven by segments like Auto ancillaries, Architectural and Engineering goods. These segments would continue to lead the powder market to new highs in the near future...."

Mr Venugopal from Marpol informed us that the company  has produced 4200 tons of powder in 05-06 Marpol's production has been steadily rising towards the number one position (See the adjacent graph).  He said "There are various dynamics involved in the production figure, however, every year we are growing by more than 35 percent." 
Commenting on the Exports, Mr. SV Prasad, said
"Chinese aggressive pricing policy is creating problems for Indian manufacturers to explore the export markets . They have the support of the government which we don't have . In fact Powder coating is not covered under the SION of advance license DGFT norms. The Industry should represent to the governement for encouragement of exports"
He further said,  "I admire you for the efforts you are making. Definitely one day all the people in the industry will acknowledge that

Mr Ashay Aggrawal of Asian Paints said, "We are close to 2800 tons with about 30 percent growth. Commenting on the total market, he said "A lot of smaller players are adding to the field and the total size could be around 25000 tons. We had a production limitation till last year,  This year our new plant has come in operation in Baddi. We have to see the impact of it in 2006-07. Commenting on the production figures, he said we have a certain segment to look for, and it is not a race where we have to run over each other."

Mr Bijoy Mukherjee informed us that Berger produced 2500 tons of powder.

Mr Chummar, Vice President of Maharani Paints said
"We produced 2000 tons of powder during 2005-2006. He estimates India's total powder production figure to be 20,000 tons. The powder market has not grown much. He said we have developed the food grade and the high temperature resistant powders. Regarding the low bake powder he said "The climatic condition of our country doesn't permit us to produce and transport  such powders..

Mr Ajit Gupta of Rapid Coat Powder Coating from Delhi said
"We produced 160 tons of powder a month". This totals up to around 1700 tons. He said, "Growth was good as compared to last year. Everybody is growing and the industry must have grown by 25 percent" Mr Gupta also finds our website very useful. "When people ask me various questions on powder coating, I just divert them to India Powder Coating", he said.

The next position is occupied by Akzo nobel. Mr Ravi from Akzo Nobel informed a figure of 1800 tons for the last financial year. He estimates a growth of 15% in the Indian powder market which could be around 20,000 tons in the calendar  year. He specifically mentioned the change in growing pattern this time. The growth is not restricted to particular segments but its a growth in totality.

Kripton produced 1700 tons, informed Mr. Deepak Madan.

Mr Tripathi, from Paramount was rather dissatisfied with this analysis He said
"Some the figure given by the manufacturers are very unrealistic and exaggerated. When you club my genuine figure with the others it is no more a true  analysis. This forum would not  remain a realistic forum if people use it with a marketing angle. He suggested that an independent survey should be conducted, and then the analysis will be more authentic. You should not allow your site to be use for marketing tool for some companies".  He confirmed Paramount produced 1350 tons.
In his email, Manmohan Samantra, General Manager, Titan Paints and Chemical Ltd said
"with a 50-50 share in the Job market and the OEM market, in 05-06 we sold 650 tons of powder", His estimate of India's total production is around 25,000-30,000 tons.
While Tapan Kumar Dhal who is Manager Technical assesses Indian Powder coating market size as  just 0.5-1% of global market. His estimates of the Indian powder production is 35000 tons, and India could have 150000 powder coating machines to spray it.

Mr Satish Gupta from Haryana Coatings Pvt. Ltd. with the brand Name "Tuffcoat" informed a contribution of 600 tons. While Mr Jayesh Ponda of Vijay Coat gave his production figure as 575 tons.

Mr Kuldeep Verma said Sharp Coatings made 400 tons. Same was the figure for Rajit Powders. Dr Mohammad Nazimuddin  said Rajit Paints manufactured 400 tons and the powder goes to Medium size OEMs. His estimate of yearly production is 25000 tons. The company has a capacity of 60 tons per month and plan for 100 tons per month in the next year.

Rajesh Arora of Priya Coat informed the company made 200 tons in 05-06. While Mr Surendra Mittal of Surya Coat contributed 140 tons. His powder goes to India and Nepal too. Mannu Pestology produced 200 tons said Mr. PL Aggrawal .

Our Chinese subscribers are also keenly interested in the India Powder Coating Market.  Talking to some of our Chinese subscribers which include powder manufacturers, the  estimated Chinese market size is around   400000 tons. The Indian market is not even 10 % of the Chinese market. Another Chinese subscriber said, "here in China, there are 2000 manufacturers.

Akzo Nobel Coatings acquires Czech paint company

Akzo Nobel's Coatings business is continuing to build its position in Central Europe having signed an agreement to acquire Balakom a.s., one of the leading paint companies in the Czech Republic. Based in Opava in the Czech Republic, the purchase of Balakom will substantially increase Akzo Nobel?s domestic market share and provide a solid base for further expansion. Today Balakom, which was established in 1907, has 183 employees who produce paints, varnishes, enamels and lacquers, as well as powder coatings. Sales, which are mainly in the domestic market, totalled EUR 16 million in 2005. ?Strengthening the presence of our coatings activities in Central Europe is a key element of the company?s global expansion strategy and this deal makes sound business sense on a number of levels,? explained Akzo Nobel CEO Hans Wijers.


Surface Chemistry of Carbon Black
 All carbon blacks have chemisorbed oxygen complexes (i.e., carboxylic, quinonic, lactonic, phenolic groups and others) on their surfaces to varying degrees depending on the conditions of manufacture. These surface oxygen groups are collectively referred to as volatile content.

The coatings and inks industries prefer grades of carbon black that are acid oxidized. Acis is sprayed in high temperature dryers during the manufacturing process to change the inherent surface chemistry of the black. The amount of chemically-bonded oxygen on the surface area of the black is increased to enhance performance characterstics.

Carbon black imparts pigmentation to products. Pigmentation refers to the color of a material or to carbon black's ability to deliver color to a final product. Different formulations of carbon black can influence aspects of pigmentation.

Jetness, undertone and gloss are important in products such as inks, paint, lacquers, enamels and industrial finishes.
UV Protection, infrared absorption and heat protection are important in outdoor applications such as primers for cars or boats, as well as industrial coatings that are exposed to weather. Carbon Black protects products from ultraviolet light because of its ability to absorb and dissipate light rays. UV rays are harmful because they cause product breakdown, making UV protection especially important in products used outdoors.

  Powder Coating Manual,  Definition of Quality, System Design-- (Part - 53)  

The operation of a powder coating system is subject to a number of variables that can affect the outcome of the finished parts. Control over these variables can provide a much better level of consistent quality.

1 Definition of Quality
Quality is often defined by subjective judgment. What is acceptable may vary from one day to the next, one shift to the next, one inspector to the next, etc. Quantitative information is necessary to create and administer a proper quality specification. Specific numerical ranges for gloss and color, the numbers and description of any dirt speck that may be acceptable or not acceptable, corrosion resistance, hardness, etc. Anything that relates directly to the appearance or function of the
part being coated.

The properties that the coating must have are directly related to the use of the product in the field. Quality is actually defined by the expectations of the most demanding customer. The performance and appearance requirements are dependent on the acceptance of the user.

A quality specification that meets the customer’s expectations can be priced into the product. A quality standard that exceeds the customer’s expectations will add cost to the product, reducing profits. A standard that is below the customer’s expectations may not sell at all. A quality control method that is subjective will result in inconsistent output, added cost and customer dissatisfaction. Accuracy is important.

Powder coaters need to recognize the variables that affect the coating process and learn how to manage them. G. Edward Demings defined quality as absence of variance. It is true that if a coating line focuses on the reduction of variables that cause defects, they can achieve the highest possible yield of acceptable product.
