Drivers & Restraints-

Urgent Need to Deploy Corrosion Management Measures will Spur Growth

Metals often create compounds, such as sulfides, carbonates, hydroxides, and oxides according to the environment they are exposed to. The NACE International IMPACT stated that corrosion worldwide costs approximately USD 2.5 trillion every year. It holds around 3.4% of the global GDP. The implementation of corrosion management measures can save 15 and 35% of the cost of corrosion across the globe annually. Various industries are nowadays inclining towards lightweight metals. These coatings aid in isolating the surface that is prone to corrosion happening because of multiple environmental elements. However, these coatings contain liquefying substances that can evaporate during a chemical process when exposed to oxygen. It further emits volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Hence, regulatory bodies have restricted the usage of solvent-borne solutions. It may hinder the protective coatings market growth.


Epoxy Segment to Lead Backed by Ability to Withstand Heat and Cold

Based on the resin type, the market is divided into epoxy, polyurethane, alkyd, acrylic, inorganic zinc, and others. Out of these, the epoxy segment generated the largest protective coatings market share in 2020 and is likely to maintain its position in the upcoming years. These coatings are capable of withstanding extreme heat and cold. They are also resistant to chemical exposure, scratches, and oil leaks. Hence, the coating is prevented from wearing out.
