The global protective coatings market, along with its end products, has witnessed a remarkable growth in the past few years. This growth is estimated to increase in the coming years. The quality, durability, corrosion and fire protection properties, and the upcoming safety regulations and innovative techniques for its use will be the key influencing factors for the global protective coatings market with the increased emphasis on its different types and applications.
The market size in terms of value of protective coatings was estimated to be $10,594.6 million in 2013, and is projected to grow with a CAGR of 9.75% from 2014 to 2019. Considerable amount of investments are made by the protective coatings players to serve the end-user applications industry in the future. The Asia-Pacific region is the most important market that accounted for about 68.52% market share of the total global demand in 2013. The region is further estimated to show a high growth in the future, mainly due to the high growth potential of protective coatings in the infrastructure and automotive market in China and India.
Almost 49.82% of the total protective coatings demand was for the construction applications in 2013, followed by the automotive industry primarily due to its high penetration in all the regions. Due to stringent governmental regulations, the solvent-borne coatings technology is rapidly getting replaced by water borne and other environmental friendly technologies. In terms of resin type, epoxy holds a maximum share of about 32.79% in 2013, due to their high level of mechanical properties, corrosion protection, and chemical resistance. The drivers of the industry are growing demand in end-user industries, increased demand for efficiency, and development and modernization of infrastructure.
