Protective & Marine Coatings Market Overview:
Global Protective & Marine Coatings Market 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.
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.
