Glass Flake Coatings Market is Increasing Product Demand Brings Excellent Business Upcoming Years :

Pune, India, May 2019, MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has Published a Half-Cooked Research Report on the Global Glass Flake Coatings Market.

Market Highlights

The Market Research Future (MRFR) report is of the view that the global glass flake coatings market is all set to be a highly profitable venture by the end of 2023, registering a striking growth rate during the forecast period (2018-2023).

Growth Factors and Key Restraints

Glass flake coatings are known for their exceptional qualities including high tensile strength, excellent moisture resistance as well as high temperature resistance among others. Such types of coatings generally find widespread applications across various industries that are complex and critical. These are predominantly used in industries like oil & gas, shipbuilding, wastewater treatment and power generation.

The boost in the use of glass flake coatings in complicated applications in industries including oil & gas, power generation and marine is fueling the demand for these coatings across the globe. Glass flake coatings are known for offering reinforcement to substrates from thermal, chemical and mechanical abrasion, rendering them the perfect choice for coating of different objects. Such coatings also find usage in industries such as pharmaceuticals, thermal power stations, dyes, food and beverages, heavy chemicals, wastewater treatment plants, and also in internal and external tanks that are employed in the marine sector.

Simply put, the growth of the market is mainly due to the rise in the demand for glass flake coatings for coat substrates like concrete and steel in the marine, chemical & petrochemical as well as oil & gas end-use industries. However, the worldwide glass flake coatings market might take a hit owing to the sluggish growth of the chemical & petrochemical as well as marine sectors in the region of Europe.

Market Segmentation

The types of resin mentioned in the report include epoxy, polyester, vinyl ester, and others. Furthermore, the polyester segment has been broken down into isophthalic polyester and bisphenol polyester, whereas the epoxy segment has been considered for pure epoxy and hybrid epoxy. In addition, the vinyl ester is further segmented on the basis of standard vinyl ester and brominated vinyl ester. Among all these, in 2017, epoxy resin controlled the substantial share of the global glass flake coatings market as a result of its unprecedented properties including excellent resistance to abrasion, impact as well as corrosion, along with high moisture and wettability retention characteristics.

Depending on the substrate type, the global glass flake coatings market can be fragmented into steel and concrete. Out of these, the steel substrate makes use of glass flake coatings to a large extent on account of the rising use of steel in offshore & onshore platforms, shipbuilding, pipelines and chemical storage tanks. Therefore, in 2017 and in the coming years, the steel substrate has been established as the top performing market at a global level.

In terms of the application methods, the global glass flake coatings market is considered for brush/roller, conventional spray, and airless spray. Here, the airless spray grabbed the major chunk of the overall glass flake coatings market based on the large-scale and precision centric application in industries including oil & gas, chemical and constructions as well as marine.

The various end-use industries in the worldwide glass flake coatings market are oil & gas, marine, chemical, construction and others. The oil & gas and marine industries, collectively are responsible for the largest consumption of the global glass flake coatings market as a result of its increasing application in offshore & onshore infrastructure, oil & gas tanks and pipelines, along with shipbuilding.
