Research Highlights

  • Asia-Pacific is the largest regional market for anti-corrosion coatings and has high growth potential, with a CAGR through 2022 projected at 6.2%. The growth in the Asia-Pacific region is mainly driven by the growing end-user industries such as infrastructure, manufacturing, and water and wastewater.
  • The epoxy type of anti-corrosion coatings currently has the strongest opportunity for coating manufacturers around the globe. In 2016, epoxies accounted for 45% of the global anti-corrosion coatings market and have a CAGR through 2022 of 5.2%.
  • Among end-users, the marine industry is one of the most prominent segments of the global anti-corrosion coatings market. Anti-corrosion coatings in the marine industry are used to protect marine vessels, ships and boats. Additionally, these coatings also enhance the vessels’ aesthetic appearances. The marine segment has a kiloton CAGR of 5.6%.

“The impact of corrosion has created tremendous demand for anti-corrosion coatings across the globe,” said BCC Research Senior Editor Gordon Nameni. “For example, there is an observable increase in the number of casualties and financial losses due to corrosion. In the public sector, power and industrial plant shutdowns – have led several governments to invest in new anti-corrosion technologies.”

Environmental Regulations Help to Shape the Market

Environmental regulations are also influencing the market. For example, American paint makers have been compelled to dedicate an increasing amount of resources to producing materials with low amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), the report notes. Today, coating manufacturers see the creation of low-VOC and zero-VOC products as a business driver, though the demand to reduce VOC emissions is lower in developing countries.
