Some highlights of the report

  • In May 2021, Hempel, which is one of the world’s leading coating manufacturers, announced the launch of Hempafire Pro 400. Hempafire Pro 400 is a new passive fire protection coating that maintains the stability of steel structures in the event of an fire for up to 120 minutes. It has been optimized for maximum efficiency in loads for a duration of 90 minutes. Exceptionally low loads help reduce both total paint consumption and the number of coats required. Intumescent coatings dry faster than similar coatings, helping to speed up project completion times. The product can be used for all types of steel profiles – for workshop and on-site applications and can also be used in harsh outdoor conditions and corrosive environments.
  • The epoxy segment is expected to account for the largest revenue share of the global protective coatings market over the forecast period owing to its increasing use for growing infrastructure development in developing countries. The optimum protection against abrasion, temperature extremes, corrosive fluids and turbulence provided by epoxy coating is driving its demand in various end-use industries.
  • The solvent-based segment is expected to register significant revenue growth over the forecast period. Solvent-based protective coatings are increasingly being used to provide corrosion protection as they are less sensitive to environmental conditions such as humidity and temperature during the curing phase compared to solvent-based protective coatings. of water.
  • The construction segment is expected to account for a considerable share of revenue in the global protective coatings market. The need for new structures with long life and better durability than existing structures leads to the use of protective coatings on concrete.
  • The Asia-Pacific protective coatings market is expected to account for the largest revenue share during the forecast period. Rising construction activities in developing countries in the region due to rapid industrialization and urbanization and growing population is expected to drive the market growth in the region over the forecast period.
