The development of industrial application of epoxy sealer has brought new horizon to the construction and furniture market with its glossy finish and long durability. However, the precision needed kept it limited in the fast-growing DIY segment in developed regions. On the other hand, polyurethanes and acrylic polyurethanes, not only improvised on the ease of applications but also presented the water-based composition that has no or very limited volatile content, thus beneficial for the environment. The acrylic urethane sealer is gaining rapid acceptance and is expected to be the fastest growing segment within the wood sealer market.

From the manufacturer's side, crude oil fluctuations with changing geopolitical scenarios and the US sanctions on Venezuela & Iran have been a key deterrent in the stability of the market, wherein almost each market segment is highly fragmented with many players competing for the market share. The raw material fluctuations are expected to be stabilized in the next 2–3 years, which would provide a platform for manufacturers to focus on market growth opportunities. The developing countries of India and Indonesia are expected to witness high growth rates during the forecast period, however the smaller base would limit the impact on regional growth number.

Wood furnish has been in use since the very early days. Earlier, there were oil furnishes, then came the varnishes, and now the market has moved to polymeric sealers. The high income levels and extensive wood utilization in the economies of the US and Japan enabled them to be at the forefront of the transition. However, the developing countries are catching up fast, and they would be the ones who will consume 5–10 years down the line. In Europe, the environment-friendly water-based premium products are taking it to the next level, while the US is being moved by the growth in DIY.” – Ankur Kalra, Research Manager, Infoholic Research
