Corrosion Protective Coatings Market Overview
Corrosion protective coatings market size is forecast to reach $31.5 billion by 2026, after growing at a CAGR of 7.6% during 2021-2026.
The robust CAGR can be attributed to the rising adoption of water-based and solvent-borne protective coatings in various end-use industries ranging from construction to transportation. Protective coating for corrosion is also used to protect culturally significant works, such as outdoor sculptures and architectural elements against deterioration due to moisture, salt spray, oxidation, or exposure to various industrial chemicals. Further, the rapid growth of the marine industry supported by growing sea transportation has increased the demand for epoxy-based paints and coatings.
Furthermore, the flourishing oil & gas industry is also expected to drive the corrosion protective coatings industry subsequently, during the forecast period.
The COVID-19 pandemic is having a huge impact on various end-use industries such as marine, oil & gas, energy generation, construction industry, and more. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the corrosion protective coating end-use industries are facing issues such as delays in receiving solvent-borne protective coatings from the manufacturers due to the restriction on import and export of materials. The pandemic has disrupted the supply chains of resins and coatings and altered demand trends that have had a major impact on the prices of raw materials. The delivery of raw materials is also delayed, which is further resulting in delayed shipments to the customer. The oil & gas industry has suffered a lot during 2020 as the whole supply chain was disrupted. For instance, According to the International Energy Agency, Ecuador’s oil and gas income is projected to fall by 85% in 2020 compared with the 2019 value. Thus, owing to the pandemic, the projects, and operations of various end-use industries including oil & gas, construction, and marine industry have significantly fallen, which is having a major impact on the corrosion protective coatings market.

Corrosion Protective Coatings Market Drivers
Increasing Losses and Damage Due to Corrosion
Corrosion has been acknowledged as one of the major problems faced by various end-use industries. On a monetary basis, the losses caused by corrosion can be very high and pose a direct threat to the welfare of general property as well as people's lives. The consumption of fixed capital (CFC) loss in 2019 was more than 10 percent of India's GDP, according to the Ministry of Statistics and Program Implementation (MOSPI). There is a huge monetary loss due to rust, corrosion, wear and tear, accidental damage, and other such factors, which in turn affect the consumption of fixed capital (CFC). Such losses contribute to economic depreciation and are seen mostly in the manufacturing and real estate sectors. By using corrosion-resistant materials, such as coatings, more than one-third of the losses can be prevented. Therefore, one of the biggest drivers for the growth of the corrosion protection coatings market will be the need to reduce losses due to corrosion.
Flourishing Power Generation and Oil & Gas Sector
In the oil & gas, and power generation sector, corrosion control of metallic structures is an important activity in technical, economic, environmental and safety terms, owing to which corrosion protective coatings are extensively used in these sectors. The negative impacts of corrosion are so enormous that providing corrosion protection for offshore structures and ensuring safe and productive drilling operations at sites is imperative for the oil & gas and power generation industries. In February 2019, the progress of the National Strategic Project Development, namely the Cirebon Power Unit 2, with a capacity of 1×1000 MW, has now reached 39 percent and is targeted to operate in February 2022. Eni S.p.A aims to begin the production of natural gas from its Merakes offshore project in Indonesia in 2021. Construction of Tangguh Train 3 is progressing, with Indonesia's BP-operated LNG export facility adding 3.8 MTPA of production capacity to the existing facility, bringing the total capacity of the plant to 11.4 MTPA. With the increasing oil & gas, and power generation projects, the demand for corrosion protective coatings will also substantially increase, which will drive the market growth.
Corrosion Protective Coatings Market Challenges
Stringent Government Regulations
The government has imposed stringent regulations intending to reduce the emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from coatings. REACH and LEED GreenSeal GC-03 2nd Ed., 1997 specify, for corrosion protection coatings, the VOC content in grams per liter (g/l). These regulations have put pressure on manufacturers of coatings to comply with the standards by reducing the content of VOC while attempting to improve or maintain the quality and performance of these coatings at the same time. As the regulations brought about a change in the technology used for the production of coatings, the regulations also affected the price of corrosion protection coatings. These are moderate-to-high solid content solvent-based coatings. Regulations have, however, forced manufacturers to explore the production of solvent-based coatings with a low solid content or to produce coatings based on water. Any technology change results in high investment because there is a change in the production process, which also affects the performance of coatings for corrosion protection. Therefore, for the growth of the market, the regulations present a challenge for the market.
