High Corrosion Resistance and Fire Resistance to Boost Protective Coatings Market

Protective coatings are added to the substrate to shield it from the elements whilst also providing a decorative finish to the finished coated surface. Protective coatings come with a very thin paint layer that serves as a buffer between the substrate and harmful degradation. Protective coatings provide fire-resistant and corrosion protection coatings services to power generation, oil and gas, industrial steel structures, and various other commercial and industrial buildings.  Such extensive use of the product is likely to bolster growth of the global protective coatings market in the years to come.

With increased government and private spending on infrastructure and rising demand for high quality services and products, the global protective coatings market is likely to expand rapidly. In addition to that, with considerable growth in infrastructure and construction sector and economic boom in the developed countries, the protective coatings industry is likely to gain rapid prominence in the years to come.

High Demand from Several End Use Industries to Spell Growth for the Market

Increased demand for protective coatings in developing countries and high demand for industrial machinery and equipment from various industries, such as construction, infrastructure, and automotive industries is likely to work in favor of the global protective coatings market. Protective coating resins come with excellent characteristics like excellent abrasion and adhesion, chemical resistance, and impact. They prolong the life of a substrate by three to five years, which is expected to drive the demand for protective coatings in near future.

Power generation, industrial, mining, aerospace, automotive, marine, oil and gas, construction, and infrastructure extensively make use of protective coatings. The major end use industry for protective coatings is estimated to be construction and infrastructure. The infrastructure and construction industry is estimated to dominate the global protective coatings market. Thriving business of the construction sector and the need for protective coatings on machinery to safeguard them from wear and tear is likely to bolster growth for this form of coating.
