As lockdown was imposed across the world due to the covid-19 outbreak, noticeably there was a reduction in investment in the construction of buildings, which led to an overall reduction in the waterborne PVDF resins demand. For instance, according to Statistics Canada, the total investment in building construction declined for a third consecutive month, edging down 0.1% to US$15.3 billion in November. In the United States, the privately-owned housing starts in June 2020 were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1,186,000, which is 4.0 percent below the June 2019 rate of 1,235,000, according to the US Census Bureau. The new orders as well as the existing construction projects faced issues such as late delivery of raw materials, increase in import-export tariff, and more, which heavily affected the market growth during the pandemic. However, the market outlook for the future is in a better scenario as governments are taking initiatives to build more buildings to spur the economic condition of countries. For instance, the Government of Canada will also provide US$236.7 million through Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy to help extend and expand the emergency response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Thus, the market outlook for the waterborne PVDF in long term is set to gain its momentum back.

Waterborne PVDF Resins Market Challenges
High Cost and Low Performance of Water-based PVDF Resins
Solvent-based PVDF resins have one major advantage over water-based PVDF resins i.e. during the curing phase; they are less vulnerable to environmental conditions, such as temperature and humidity. Humidity can prevent the evaporation of water in a water-based PVDF coating, making it impractical in some climates. Hence, solvent-based PVDF resins are preferred for applications in humid environments that don’t allow water-based PVDF resins to cure properly. Also, solvent-based PVDF resins are typically more resilient than water-based resins during the curing of the coating. Besides, the capital cost and fixed cost associated with changing the technology from solvent-based to water-based are high. Hence, many small-scale manufacturers in emerging regions are still using solvent-based PVDF resins. All these factors are restraining the water-based PVDF resins market growth during the forecast period.
