Global anti-corrosion coatings market size is majorly driven by increasing energy demand. These are widely used in energy industry including oil, gas, coal, nuclear, hydro, biomass, and other renewable energy sources, as they provide protection to the equipment used in the industry from extreme weather conditions. For instance, equipment required in hydropower generation plants is in direct contact with water and atmospheric moisture, which makes them vulnerable to corrosion. Furthermore, the global population was approximately 6.89 billion in 2010 and is anticipated to reach approximately 9 billion by 2040. This growing population trend is likely to increase the clean energy demand, consequently driving anti-corrosion coatings market size. 

These coatings are widely used in oil & gas equipment’s such as oil storage tanks, drill pipes and drill bits, which are broadly exposed to marshy lands and underground water. The global oil & gas equipment market generated USD 130 billion in 2010 and is anticipated to reach USD 278 billion by 2025. Growing oil & gas equipment market will consequently boost anti-corrosion coating market share. Furthermore, the growing demand for energy production through shale gas, oil sands, oil shale, and tar sands will further industry growth by 2025. 

Marine is one of the prominent end uses for the global anti-corrosion coatings market share, to protect marine vessels, ships, boats, etc., with metal hulls and consequently result in low maintenance cost. In addition, these coatings also enhanced the vessels aesthetic appearance. As of 2015, there were approximately 40,900 commercial vessels in operation globally. These ships require high maintenance as they are prone to corrosion during voyage. The product is also extensively employed during the shipbuilding process and advanced forms of these coatings available in the market provide protection from corrosion, offer added durability, anti-static effect, and UV stability to the coated surfaces. 

Key raw materials used in the anti-corrosion coatings manufacturing are obtained mainly from petrochemical derivatives such as benzene, toluene, ethylene, and naphthalene, oscillating raw material prices on account of the intermittent rise and fall of crude oil and natural gas prices may hamper anti-corrosion coatings price trends over the forecast timeframe. Stringent environment legislations on account of the VOC content of the product is likely to negatively impact business growth. However, increasing water-based product demand will create new growth opportunities.
