D. Ashwin Kumar, senior research analyst, Chemicals, Materials & Food, Frost & Sullivan, said, "Growth in the Asian powder coatings market is inevitable and the market is expected to emerge gradually. Many of the customers perceive powder coatings as a costly coating process and are blind to the superior properties offered by powder coatings that increase the longevity and enhance the performance of the coating products." He adds, "Unless manufacturers are able to convince the customers, shift to powder coating systems will happen slowly and gradually, given the intense price competition in the end-use industry. It is also important to understand customers' customers and factors that influence the whole chain."
