The Corrosion Protection Engineering industry is busy managing the corrosion of the aging US infrastructure and protecting new projects from its harmful effects. Although the recession caused demand from key construction, energy and transportation markets to slow as they reduced investments and scaled back production, a renewed public and federal government focus on upgrading America's aging infrastructure and recovering public and private levels of investment into downstream energy, construction and transportation industries will underpin growth. Industry firms will benefit from increasing demand by downstream industries to implement new materials and develop plans to economically reduce corrosion expenses and extend the life of costly new structures and equipment.
This industry includes companies that are engaged in applying scientific knowledge, natural laws and physical resources in order to design and implement materials, structures, devices, systems and procedures to manage corrosion. These services may involve the provision of advice, preparation of feasibility studies, preparation of plans and designs, provision of technical services during the construction or installation phase, inspection and evaluation of projects and related services.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
