Glass Flake Coatings Market by Resin (Epoxy, Vinyl Ester, Polyester), Substrate (Steel, Concrete), End-Use Industry (Oil & Gas, Marine, Chemical & Petrochemical), and Region (APAC, Europe, North America, South America, MEA) - Global Forecast to 2022
The glass flake coatings market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.48% from 2017 to 2022
The glass flake coatings market is estimated at USD 1.44 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 1.80 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.48% from 2017 to 2022. Glass flake coatings offer excellent resistance to oil, gas, moisture, chemicals, and many solvents. The market is mainly driven by the increased demand for glass flake coatings to coat substrates such as steel and concrete in the oil & gas, marine, and chemical & petrochemical end-use industries. The glass flake coatings market may be restrained by the slow growth of the chemical & petrochemical and marine sectors in Europe.
Based on resin, the epoxy segment is projected to lead the glass flake coatings market during the forecast period
The epoxy segment is expected to lead the glass flake coatings market during the forecast period. Epoxy resins are one of the most versatile materials available for coating in marine environments. Epoxy-based glass flake coatings have different properties, including superior anti-corrosion properties and longer service life, which make them highly useful for coating steel structures used in industrial plants, tank exteriors, oil tanks, pipelines, and cooling towers.
Asia Pacific to lead the glass flake coatings market during the forecast period
Asia Pacific is the largest and the fastest-growing region in the glass flake coatings market. It is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period and offer significant opportunities to glass flake coatings market players. The low cost of production and availability of cheap labor in the region are some of the factors contributing to this high growth. China has been driving the glass flake coatings market not only in the Asia Pacific region but also globally due to the rapid expansion of its chemical manufacturing industry and increasing shipbuilding activities.
