Epoxy Primer Market by Substrate (Metal, Concrete & Masonry, and Fiberglass), Application (Building & Construction, Automotive, Marine, and Machinery & Equipment), Technology (Solvent-borne, and Waterborne), and Region-Global Forecast to 2023
“The epoxy primer market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2018 to 2023.”
The epoxy primer market is projected to grow from USD 8.52 billion in 2018 to USD 10.91 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.1%, in terms of value, between 2018 and 2023. The growth of the epoxy primer market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for epoxy primers in various applications and growing awareness to reduce the loss caused by corrosion. However, environmental regulations to reduce the use of epoxy primers produced using solvent-borne technology is restraining the growth of the market, and the entry of new players and the fluctuating raw material prices are considered as major challenges for the market.
“Based on substrate, the metal segment is expected to lead the epoxy primer market during the forecast period.”
Based on substrate, the metal segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the epoxy primer market during the forecast period. Epoxy primers are used over different metal substrates, such as steel, aluminum, iron, and others. It is widely used on metal substrates for different applications such as automotive, marine, aviation, energy, infrastructural structures, and oil & gas. These primers form an important layer in automotive and marine applications, which provides excellent adhesion and resistance to corrosion and chemicals. Their application also helps in reducing the maintenance cost over a long period of time.
“Based on application, the building & construction is projected to lead the epoxy primer market during the forecast period.”
Based on application, the building & construction segment is expected to lead the epoxy primer market. Epoxy primers are widely used on concrete & masonry surfaces for flooring application. In this application, it is also preferred for metal substrates that are used for priming structures. APAC is the largest market for epoxy primer in building & construction application. The growth can be attributed to the increasing government investments for infrastructural development in emerging countries such as China, India, Malaysia, and others. The infrastructural developments in this region result in a huge demand for coatings, thereby driving the epoxy primer market.
“The solvent-borne technology is projected to be the fastest-growing segment of the epoxy primer market during the forecast period.”
Based on technology, the solvent-borne technology is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the epoxy primer market during the forecast period. Epoxy primers manufactured by using solvent-borne technology are used for a wide variety of substrates, and they offer superior characteristics such as less curing time, excellent adhesion, and resistance to corrosion, abrasion, and chemicals. It has a wide preference in APAC, South America, and the Middle East & Africa.
“APAC is expected to be the highest-growing market for epoxy primer.”
The APAC region is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period; this growth can be attributed to the high demand for coatings from countries such as China, India, and other Southeast Asian countries. The growth of construction, automotive, marine, and industrial sectors is also major factor expected to drive the epoxy primer market in the APAC region.
