Pipe coating is a protective coating on to metal surfaces primarily required to prevent corrosion of pipes. Coatings can be done for pipes below as well as above the ground level internal coat and external coat. The coating is applied from single layer to triple layer array to endure harsh environments such as UV, solvents, moisture etc. Besides, protection from the corrosion pipe coatings are also developed for abrasion resistance. The selection of proper coating depends on various factors, some of which are performance level, economics consideration, regulatory concerns, technical properties requirement, etc. Polymeric pipe coating such as fusion bonded epoxy coating also known as FBE coating and olefin based are popular due to coating with lower residual stress and uniform coating without weld tenting. Oil and gas industry is the main end user for pipe coating market, since the transportation of heavy oil, liquids is very frequent and shelf life of the pipe is an important concern. The pipe coating market is was lightly hit by the fall of oil industry in 2015, but it is anticipated that the pipe coating market growth will be advance latter half of 2016.
The pipe coating market is driven majorly by the industrial segment of the end user industry. The need for higher shelf life, smooth transportation of oils and acids drives the pipe coating market. Besides, abrasion resistance overlay (ARO) is a trend setter in the pipe coating solutions. Also, s regional strict government regulations for the environment and health safety (EHS), aids in the growth of pipe coating market.
