Domestic paint industry to cross Rs 62K crore mark by 2016-17: ASSOCHAM
Festival season bring bright colours for Indian paints industry

Indian paint industry is likely to surge from the current level of about Rs. 40,600 crore to about Rs. 62,000 crore by 2016 witnessing a breathtaking double-digit compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of about 20%, apex industry body ASSOCHAM said.
The factors that have fuelled the paint industry's growth are the rise in disposable income and education, increasing urbanization, development of the rural market and various launches of many innovative products.

As per the ASSOCHAM recent report on Indian paint Industry: 2014 reveals that India is the second-largest consumer of paint in Asia. Top players include Asian Paints, Kansai Nerolac Paints, Berger Paints, AkzoNobel, Nippon Paints and Shalimar Paints, adds the report.

The Indian paint industry has seen a gradual shift in the preferences of people from the traditional white wash to higher quality paints like emulsions and enamel paints, said Mr. D S Rawat, Secretary General ASSOCHAM.<more>

AkzoNobel introduces sustainable powder alternative to chrome plating
AkzoNobel Performance Coatings has launched an innovative, bright metallic powder coating that provides a sustainable and cost-effective alternative to chrome plating.

Interpon Cr, part of AkzoNobel's Interpon powder coatings range, combines a chrome-like finish with the proven performance of a two-coat powder coating for applications such as furniture, lighting and other interior fixtures.

The unique combination of a highly reflective base coat layer with a clear top coat also offers outstanding resistance to finger marking.

"Special effect finishes are continuing to grow in popularity and metallics are very much in demand," explained Mark Reekie, Global Marketing Manager - General Industrial at AkzoNobel Powder Coatings.

"Designers and stylists are always on the lookout for new ways to enhance the appearance of their creations and Interpon Cr was created to appeal to those looking for a bright, durable coating that gives a creative edge to coated products."<more>

IFFCO to set up titanium project
Nellore: Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative (Iffco) is all set to establish a titanium project to produce titanium sponge at its Kisan SEZ located at Racharlapadu in Kodavalur mandal of SPSR Nellore district.The Iffco managing dir-ector, Dr U.S. Awasthi, has submitted a proposal to Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu last week to setup the project.
Iffco has earmarked 400 acre in the SEZ and it will invest `2,500 crore on the project which can provide direct employment to 1,000 people.

The titanium sponge is essential material for the aerospace industry and it is also used for manuf-acture of all types of pai-nts, glazed papers, plasti-cs, printed fabrics and fl-ooring materials. Iffco identified a Ukrainian firm for technology and engineering for the project. The raw material for the production is limonite and it will be extracted from beach sand. According to sources in Iffco, ilmenite is the major feed stock for the titanium project and it is available aplenty in the beach sand obtainable along costal stretches of Odisha, AP, Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

Out of estimated 514 million tonne reserves of ilmenite in India, 171 MT are in AP according to a study. Ilmenite production in India is around 1 MT annually and Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Odisha are the major producers as of now.Permission from the state government for the mining of ilmenite is the key for setting up the project. Iffco officials say that working group of 12th Five Year Plan has recommended for simplification and facilitation of grant of concessions and land acquisition to facilitate exploitation of minerals available in the beach sand.<more>

BASF opens India polyurethane chemicals plant
The integrated polyurethane manufacturing facility will host a MDI (methylene diphenyl diisocyanate) splitter for processing crude MDI, a core component in the manufacture of polyurethane products.

BASF has inaugurated its new large-scale chemical production complex at Dahej in Gujarat, India, the company announced on Tuesday.

With a project cost of INR 1,000 crore (approximately €150 million), the site represents BASF’s single largest investment in India.

“As part of our investment plans of more than €10 billion in Asia Pacific between 2013 and 2020, we want to strengthen our production platform in India," said Michael Heinz, a member of BASF's executive board. "With our new Dahej site, we are enhancing our position as supplier with local production and can even better ‘create chemistry’ with our customers. With our advanced technologies and the commitment of our team in India, we will both contribute to and benefit from India’s huge market potential.”<more>

Asian Paints: decent revenue growth but margins shrink in Q2
Asian Paints’ operating profit for the September quarter grew at a much slower pace of 5% year-on-year to Rs.536 crore

Softening crude prices are expected to offer some respite to the company’s input costs.
Photo: Mint The good thing about Asian Paints Ltd’s financial results for the September quarter was that raw material costs as a percentage of revenue declined by about 40 basis points (bps) to 56%. But that did not offer comfort to the paint maker’s operating profit margin. Far from it. Asian Paints’ operating margin in the September quarter fell by 164 bps over the same period last year to 14.8% and it’s lower compared with the June quarter too. One basis point is 0.01%. The culprits: higher employee costs (one-offs) and other expenses (due to higher advertising spending). Asian Paints’ operating profit for the September quarter, therefore, grew at a much slower pace of 5% year-on-year to Rs.536 crore. On the other hand, the company’s revenue increased by 16.6% to Rs.3,633 crore. While the rate of revenue growth last quarter is slightly lower than the June quarter revenue growth, investors would do well to remember that the September quarter did have a relatively high base to begin with. For instance, in the September quarter last year, Asian Paints’ revenue growth was 18%.<more>

Neighbouring states perceive Andhra Pradesh a threat to their investments
HYDERABAD|BANGALORE: After Andhra Pradesh succeeded in attracting top two-wheeler maker Hero MotoCorp to set up a manufacturing facility by offering uninterrupted power supply and other incentives, its neighbouring states consider Andhra a threat to their investments.

Leading paints manufacturer Asian Paints has already showed interest in establishing two facilities in Andhra by dropping its plans for Karnataka, while many power-intensive manufacturing units in neighbouring states are in parleys to shift lock, stock and barrel to Andhra, said three persons in the know.

"Encouraged by the proposed incentives and uninterrupted power supply, Asian Paints wants to set up two large projects — in South and north coastal Andhra regions — involving over Rs 2,000 crore of investments each," a senior state bureaucrat said. The company has sought at least 150 acres each for these two proposed projects, the person added.

While an Asian Paints spokesperson said a decision on shifting investments from Karnataka to Andhra "is still pending", a senior company official, who did not want to be named, said, "We have some issues with the Karnataka government pertaining to land allocation." Neighbours have already raised concern over Andhra's aggressive poaching investments with the help of tax breaks and other incentives coupled with generous support from the Centre.<more>

Asian Paints arm to set up manufacturing facility in Indonesia
Asian Paints Ltd has now announced that Badan Koordinasi Penanaman Modal ("BKPM"), the Investment Coordinating Board of Republic of Indonesia, has approved the aforesaid investment application and has issued a principal license for setting up manufacturing facility.

Berger International Limited (BIL), Singapore, a subsidiary of Asian Paints (International) Limited (APIL), Mauritius, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, had on August 22, 2014 filed an application for investment approval with the Regulatory authorities at Jakarta, Indonesia for setting up a paint manufacturing facility as part of a greenfield foray into Indonesia<more>.

Kansai Nerolac Paints ties up with Flipkart for festive season
MUMBAI: Kansai Nerolac Paints today said it has entered into a strategic marketing tie-up with leading e-tailer Flipkart ahead of festive season.

The interactive consumer interface will allow one to browse through a gallery of wall finishes, designer textures, product benefits, videos and customer testimonials before making the purchase, the company said in a statement

The Exchange had sought clarification from Kansai Nerolac Paints Limited regarding news item captioned "Kansai Nerolac ties up with Flipkart". The Company has clarified that "Our Company, Kansai Nerolac Paints Ltd. (KNP) is associated with Flipkart in an endeavor to engage the consumer with its range of products online. We have also offered a discount for the festive season on booking the painting service. Given the sensorial nature of the category, which is predominantly Do It For Me, KNP does not envisage this move as material change in the company s nature of business. KNP continues to invest aggressively in the brick and mortar retail to enrich the consumer experience. i.e. selling product through dealer/distribution. Association with Flipcart is mere marketing association to promote our brand. It is promotion and painting service in normal course of business having no material effect. There is no exclusive strategic tie up.Hence the Company had not considered it necessary to intimate the Exchange in terms of Clause 36 of the Listing Agreement".

Nanoparticles Display Ability to Improve Efficiency of Filters
Tehran, Iran | Posted on October 28th, 2014
The membranes are used in water purification industries, milk concentration and transparency of fruit juices.

In addition to high efficiency, separation through filters has lower operational costs. Therefore, the wide application of the devices is observed in various industries. The aim of the research was to reduce the blocking of ultrafiltration membrane made of emulsified polyvinyl chloride by using titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles.

Being more hydrophobic is the problem of emulsified polyvinyl chloride in comparison with other polymers, including polyether sulfone. The use of titanium dioxide nanoparticles increases hydrophilicity of the synthetic membrane, and it prevents organic materials from sticking to the surface of the membrane, so the pores of the membrane are not blocked any more. Therefore, the addition of nanoparticles increases porosity and the flux of water and protein passing through the synthetic membrane. This membrane has even better performance than the similar polyether sulfone membranes.

The research team is currently studying the application of other nanoparticles for the modification of EPVC polymer<more>

Expansion for 6th Leading International Trade Fair for Industrial Coating Technology from 19 through 22 April 2016 in Karlsruhe

Strong Demand for Booth Locations at PaintExpo 2016 and 2017

Oberboihingen, October 2014 – 18 months before the trade fair opens, more than 175 companies from 12 countries have already made firmbookings for their booth locations at PaintExpo 2016. As a result, approximately 50% of all exhibition floor space occupied at the event in 2014 has already been booked. The international trade fair for industrial coating technologies to be held in April 2017 due to the schedule change to the odd-numbered years is also right on course: roughly 80% of the companies have decided to participate both years. “Even we ourselves have been a bit surprised, and of course pleased with the strong demand for booth floor space at this early point in time. The fact that many companies have not only booked booth floor space for PaintExpo 2016, but rather for 2017 as well, is especially encouraging. As a result of the schedule change to the odd-numbered years, the leading international trade fair will take place after just one year in 2017”, explains

Jürgen Haußmann, managing director of event promoters FairFair GmbH. Practically all of the market and technology leaders from the various fields of industrial coating technologies are amongst the 175 companies who are already included in the exhibitor list. It’s no wonder that PaintExpo has established itself as the number one information and procurement platform  for users around the globe. This is also made apparent by the visitor numbers at PaintExpo 2014 which increased by 14.2% to a total of 9167. 26.6% of the expert visitors came from outside of Germany – from a total of 70 countries. “PaintExpo has evolved into the unequivocal meeting place for the industry sector. The audience has once again become more professional and international, and even more visitors have attended  PaintExpo. We’re already looking forward to PaintExpo 2016”, reports Martin Weidisch from marketing at J. Wagner GmbH – one of the companies who have already made firm bookings for floor space at the leading international trade fair in 2016, and are thus enjoying a full range of options with regard to booth location. Amongst other companies, this is also being taken advantage of by US manufacturer of UV-LED curing technology, Phoeson Technology Inc., as well as Lesta S.R.L. from Italy, who both participated at the leading trade fair for industrial coating technologies for the first time in 2014. 18 months before the trade fair opens, the companies who have already registered for PaintExpo 2016 will occupy roughly 6,300 square metres (67,812 sq. ft.) of floor space, which amounts to about 50% of all occupied floor space in 2014. And roughly  40% has already been firmly booked for PaintExpo 2017.

Market-Oriented, Representative, Forward-Looking Offerings
“We’re expecting further growth of visitor numbers once again in 2016”,says Jürgen Haußmann. This is indicative of the fact that users in various regions around the world are faced with different, but nevertheless generally increasing requirements. These include higher levels of quality and increased productivity, as well as more flexibility and sustainability. Beyond this, the use of new materials, for example lightweight components made of fibrous composite materials, as well as utilisation of various materials within a given finished product, are presenting in-house painting operations and coating job-shops with new challenges. This results in investment needs for in-house painting operations around the globe, because these requirements can only be fulfilled through the use of technical innovations. And these are presented by the exhibitors at PaintExpo in a diversity which is unparalleled anywhere else in the world, and cover the entire process sequence for liquid painting, powder  coating and coil coating. The exhibition programme encompasses liquid painting and powder coating systems, application systems and spray guns, liquid paints and powdered enamels, automation and conveyor technology, cleaning and pre-treatment, drying and curing, environmental technology, pneumatics, compressed air supply and exhaust purification,  water treatment, recycling and disposal, accessories, measuring and test technology, quality assurance, paint stripping, job-shop coating, services and technical literature. Beyond this, downstream process steps such as printing and packaging are covered as well. The same programme will be showcased at the 3rd trade fair for industrial coating technology in Istanbul, Turkey, from the 15th PaintExpo Eurasia, through the 17thmutually by FairFair GmbH and Artkim Fuarcilik.

Further information and a preliminary exhibitor list can be accessed at of October, 2015. The Turkish offshoot will be promoted
