Asia Pacific, Latin America, North America, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa are some of the key regions in the global marine coatings market. Of them, Asia Pacific dominates the global marine coating market in terms of volume and value. In 2016, it held over 60% value share of the market. Powered by shipbuilding activities in China, Japan, and South Korea, the market in the region is predicted to maintain its leading position in the years ahead too.
Deep-sea Applications Drive Demand
At the forefront of driving demand in the global marine coatings application, is their deep-sea application which protects ships from harsh weather conditions and improves their appearance. “The marine industry comprises of bulk tankers and carriers, cargo ships, cruise ships and container ships. Marine coatings play a crucial role in increasing fuel efficiency of vessels and hence bring down fallout on the environment. The new shipbuilding industry has been experiencing sluggish growth of late. However, rising demand for marine coatings during ship repair and maintenance activities is likely to boost market growth during the forecast period,” explains the lead analyst of the TMR report.
Focus of Product Development Positively Influence Market
The ever expanding oil and gas industry, more extensive usage of coatings to make sure the long-term security of the marine assets, and the enforcing of the IMO ballast tank coating norms, have all contributed significantly to the global marine coatings market. Further, customer preference and strict government policies regarding eco-friendly products is lending a considerable hand in boosting product innovation. Researchers and manufacturers are now focusing on developing anti-fouling metal-free coating which will not negatively impact the marine life. However, slow growth of the ship building industry is expected to be a restraining factor for the growth of the overall market.
