Industrial coatings are manufactured using polymer substances to offer chemical and corrosion resistance, non-stick performance, abrasion resistance, and chemical protection. Polymers in the product provide high resistance to acids, bases, and chemical solvents. These coatings are also used to provide superior aesthetics, durability, and environmental compliance.

These solutions are applied on a primer and finished with a sealant. The product is mainly used to protect concrete or steel from rusting. These coatings are available in powder, water-based, and electrocoating or E-coating forms, which make materials more resistant to fire or water.

Industrial coatings are used in numerous applications such as building products, vehicles & boats, transportation equipment, outdoor structures and equipment, sports and play equipment, and construction & agricultural equipment, among others. Acrylic products are commonly used in automotive and architectural applications as they offer high-gloss and superior corrosion resistance.

Several zinc-based coatings are applied on steel parts. The presence of zinc provides a polymeric and galvanic barrier to offer high corrosion resistance. Epoxy offers superior properties of corrosion, abrasion, and weathering. These solutions are also resistant to extremely high temperatures.

The COVID-19 outbreak has negatively impacted the industrial coatings market owing to disruption of the supply chain, lack of raw materials, operational challenges, transportation delays, and travel restrictions. Manufacturing and construction activities have also been halted due to various government regulations across the globe.

The pandemic has severely affected the industry and has experienced reduced demand and workforce impairment. Restrictions on imports of goods to curb the spread of the virus have further contributed to restricting the market growth.

Epoxy resin segment is expected to hold a significant revenue share

Epoxy resins are widely used in varied industries owing to their high resistance against extreme temperatures, corrosion, abrasion, and weathering. They are used for coating white goods such as washers, driers, and others owing to their ease of application and durability.

Automobiles and boats are coated with epoxy to prevent corrosion and ensure the adhesion of paints. These coatings also offer corrosion resistance and are used in steel pipes and fittings used in the oil and gas industry, water transmission pipelines, and concrete reinforcing.

Solvent borne segment accounted for a major market share in 2021

Solvent-borne solutions are composed of organic compounds and are used on surfaces to prevent corrosion. These solutions offer greater resilience than water-borne coatings during the curing of the coating. Solvent-borne solutions are preferred over water-borne coatings when considering corrosion, hardness, and chemical resistance. Solvent-borne coatings are widely used in industrial segments as they provide exceptional performance in application and curing, irrespective of environmental conditions.

The manufacturing growth in China, India, and Japan and the established automotive industry drive the growth of this region. Increasing industrialization and urbanization across the globe, especially in emerging economies, has given rise to the application of the product in automotive, oil and gas, energy and power, and aerospace, among others.

General industry sector is expected to hold a significant revenue share

The products are applied to general industrial products such as mechanical parts, building materials, construction machinery, rail cars, and others.
