14-Apr-2022 | Zion Market Research

The Marine Coatings Market was worth around USD 3,621.5 million in 2021 and is estimated to grow to about USD 4,349.5 million by 2028, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 3.1 percent over the forecast period. The report analyzes the Marine Coatings Market drivers, restraints/challenges, and the effect they have on the demands during the projection period. In addition, the report explores emerging opportunities in the Marine Coatings Market.

Marine coatings are used to protect the surfaces and parts of ships and marine containers from wear and corrosion. They are used on container ships, bulk carriers, tankers, passenger ships, and general cargo. Corrosion deteriorates the components and lowers the service life of maritime vessels dramatically. Shipbuilders and maintenance service providers also utilize these coatings to improve the visual appearance and aesthetics of the exterior surfaces.

The requirement for subsequent dry-docking of vessels, new shipbuilding activities, and the expansion of offshore drilling are the primary drivers driving the growth of the worldwide marine coatings market in the forecast period.  In addition, as customer demand for VOC-free and environmentally friendly marine coatings grows, new trends are being implemented by marine coatings producers in order to meet these consumer criteria while still complying with government regulations, which will drive the market in the coming years.

The global shipping trade is also expanding, which is a favorable element for the growth of the global marine coatings industry. Moreover, growth in global trade, consumer awareness of hull protection, vessel fuel efficiency, and the expansion of the oil and gas sector in offshore regions, new shipbuilding facilities, and dry-docking activities tend to drive the global market for marine coatings.

The popularity of yachts and cruise ships among leisure travelers is fuelling the expansion of the marine coatings market. However, the government's regulatory standards for the use of VOC-based marine coatings may act as a barrier to the growth of the worldwide marine coatings market. To overcome environmental constraints, producers are adopting new technologies such as more water-based and lower VOC content in marine coatings, which are trending in the global marine coatings market among customers.
