Market Synopsis


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). Glass flake coatings consist of resin matrix reinforced with properly graded and micron thick glass flakes that can overlap in multiple layers creating a barrier to permeation and extend the service life of the coating. The laminar arrangement of glass flakes in the coating provides an excellent barrier against external weather conditions. For instance, corrosive ions follow a tortuous path through the glass flakes to attack the base substrate. Glass flake coatings find wide applications in end-user industries as marine, oil & gas, chemical & petrochemical, construction industry, and others.  They can be applied to steel or concrete base substrate.


Various types of resins used in glass flakes coatings are epoxy, polyester, and vinyl ester depending upon the application. The polyester glass flake coatings find application in immersion & splash environments where resistance to light chemical attack is required. Vinyl ester glass flake coatings provide high chemical & abrasion resistance to tank linings. Epoxy glass flakes coatings are the most preferred type of glass flakes coatings. They provide outstanding corrosion, abrasion, and impact resistance, which makes them useful in humid, saline, chemical, extreme wear and tear, and harshest offshore environment. Epoxy glass flake coatings have good drying properties even at low temperature, which makes it useful in cold stores applications. Polyamine/polyamide cured epoxy coatings has good wetting properties, low water, oil & chemical permeability, excellent corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, and impact resistance. Polyamine/polyamide cured epoxy glass flakes coatings finds wide applications in floors of car parking decks & manufacturing units, aircraft hangers, parking bays, pedestrian walkways, industrial floors, cold stores, laboratories, food & beverage manufacturing plants, and restaurant kitchens among others.


Increasing need for improving performance and lifespan of equipment & devices are likely to boost demand for glass flake coatings in oil & gas, marine, chemical, and construction industries over the forecast period. Growing offshore oil & gas industry due to rising demand for energy is expected to drive strong demand for glass flake coatings in new pipeline construction projects over the forecast period. Additionally, growing marine industry due to rising global trade on account of trans-free trade agreements is expected to boost the demand for glass flake coatings to a large extent for shipbuilding & maintenance projects during the forecast period 2018-2023.


However, fluctuation in glass flake coatings prices is likely to hamper the market growth to some extent during the forecast period. Furthermore, the rise in the protection by some regions may encourage local production and consumption, which may hamper the marine industry and might restrict the glass flake coatings growth during the forecast period.
