Protective & Marine Coatings Market Overview:

Global Protective & Marine Coatings Market Size was valued at $18,437 million in 2016, and is expected to garner $31,047 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 7.7% during the forecast period 2017 - 2023. The protective & marine coatings are used to guard the base construction materials from corrosion and moisture. These coatings, when regularly applied, offer a long-range protection that extends the life expectancy of a structure. There are various types of equipment & buildings that require a protective and/or finish coating, based on environmental requirements and materials involved.

Protective and Marine Coatings Market

Marine coatings play a key role in protection from corrosion. They have the ability to protect effectively against oxidization for several years, which depends on technical parameters such as fundamental corrosion protection through galvanic, barrier or inhibition effects, enhanced adhesion properties, higher mechanical strength, and crack-resistant properties.

The global protective & marine coatings market is driven by the increase in infrastructure & construction projects in emerging countries, rise in demand for high performance coatings, and environmentally friendly protective coatings. The constant need for repair & maintenance in ships/boats is a contributing factor for the market growth. However, strict environmental regulations on production and usage of protective coatings are expected to restrict the market growth in future. Mergers are expected to remain as the key strategy of the players to widen their brand portfolios and expand the market outreach.

Analyst Review

Currently, environmental protection paint has enhanced. There are more investments in the field of non-hazardous chemical materials, owing to the progress in formulation & technology. This trend has led the raw material to grow in price, such as resins, additives, and pigments.

The coatings market is witnessing steady growth rate, such as threat of environmental regulations and alternatives. Regulatory and environmental issues drive the paint & coatings industry to update continually. Paint manufacturers focus on reducing the volatile organic compound (VOC) content in solvent-based paints, waterborne coatings, powder coatings, and other high-solids formulations, resulting to increase in the market share.

The Asia-Pacific protective & marine coatings market presents promising opportunities, owing to high growth rate of the infrastructure in emerging countries. Moreover, the demand for epoxy, polyurethane, and acrylic resin is expected to increase in emerging countries, owing to growth potential for construction industry and demand for environmental coatings.
