Albany, New York (PRWEB) April 19, 2013
The U.S. dominated the North America UV light stabilizer market, accounting for close to 85% of the total demand in 2011. UV light stabilizers are the additives, generally used to impart UV resistance properties to wood preservation coatings.
Hindered Amine Light Stabilizer (HALS) and UV Absorber (UVA) are the two predominantly used UV light stabilizer additives for wood coatings.
Wood usually consists of lignin, which undergoes discoloration and decomposition on constant exposure to ultra violet radiation. Hence wood products are protected by using UV light stabilizers in wood coatings.

The growth of the UV light stabilizer market in the U.S. is mainly driven by growing demand for UV resistant wood coatings from housing and commercial construction and the furniture industry. The U.S. was the leading UV light stabilizer market in North America in terms of both production and consumption, followed by Mexico with 9.2% share in total volume consumption in 2011.

However, housing and construction industry is expected to exhibit rapid growth in the near future as a consequence of economic development in the country. This in turn is expected to drive the demand for UV resistant wood coating and thus for UV light stabilizers. The increasing penetration of nanotechnology in the coatings industry, especially for TiO(2) and ZnO(2) based nano-UV light stabilizers are expected to present significant opportunities in the market over the next five years.

Decking and flooring application dominated stabilizer consumption accounting for 24.4% of the total demand in 2011. Another important application market for UV light stabilizers was furniture and interiors, which accounted for 23.3% share of total UV light stabilizer volume consumed in 2011. Recovery in housing and growth in residential spending were identified as the major driving factors for the growth of furniture and interior industry which in turn is expected to drive the demand for UV light stabilizers.
