Global Intumescent Coatings market set to grow at over 4.5 percent up to 2024
The global Intumescent Coatings market is projected to grow from US$900 million in 2017 to US$1.2 billion in 2024, at a CAGR of 4.5% between 2017 and 2024 owing to its applications in automotive, oil & gas, and construction sectors primarily due to its fire-retardant properties.
They provide fire protection due to swelling properties at high temperature and are applied to structural elements like wood, steel, and aluminium structures which usually lose strength during fire. Growing use of passive fire protection methods as per structural design codes are predicted to promote the industry growth in the coming years.
Hydrocarbon applications segment worth over US$450 million in 2017, is projected to make significant gains at over 5% over the period of 2018-2024. Key explorations in oil & gas and energy sectors have resulted in heavy demand for the intumescent coatings in these sectors.
Water based intumescent coatings market is predicted to grow at over 5% over the period of 2018-2024 owing to its weatherability and low volatile organic compounds (VoC) contents coupled with its eco-friendly features resulting in safe workplace conditions.
Solvent based intumescent coatings market is anticipated to witness moderate growth over the forecast timeline due to its high dry rate, resulting in damage of the soft coated surface layer.
Intumescent Coatings growth in construction end use segment is forecast to grow at a CAGR of around 5% over 2018-2024
Construction end use segment is expected to witness a substantial growth over the period of 2018-2024 owing to the growing demand for intumescent coatings in buildings & constructions as a result of its fire retarding (or fire resisting) properties.
Automotive end use segment is projected to witness a noticeable growth over the forecast timeline due to the need to provide protection to oil tubes in engine bay from high engine temperatures
Oil & gas end-use segment worth over US$450 million in 2017, is predicted to witness significant growth over the forecast timeframe owing to extensive use of intumescent coatings to provide protection against fire to steel structures used in offshore oil & gas applications.
Germany intumescent coatings market is predicted to grow at a CAGR of around 4.5% over the period of 2018-2024 owing to strict rules regarding vehicle safety and protection against fire.
Brazil intumescent coatings market is predicted to register highest gains at around 5% over the period of 2018-2024 owing to strict legislations passed by the government regarding the use of fire protection systems in constructions for safety purpose.
The U.S. market is projected to witness a surge over the forecast timeline owing to the growing application of intumescent coatings in the aerospace sector to protect various airplane parts from fire.
China intumescent coatings market worth over US$145 million in 2017, is predicted to witness a substantial growth by 2024 as a result of rise in infrastructure spending and the presence of high amount of shale gas reserves in the region.
