Intumescent Coatings Market Trends

  • Increased investment is propelling market growth

Rising demand for energy, shale gas, tight gas, and coal bed methane (CBM) as a result of the maturation of the conventional oil & gas resources industry is expected to be a major growth driver for the intumescent coatings market CAGR. Increased investments in the maintenance and repair of oil and gas drilling equipment and platforms are also predicted to fuel demand for intumescent coatings. Furthermore, growing shale gas exploration costs in the United States are expected to drive product demand during the next seven years.

Furthermore, it has a faster drying time, a high build capacity and resistance to moisture, good weather ability, and lowered overcoating intervals. Widespread usage of water-based coatings in construction and infrastructure for cellulosic applications such as paper, wood, and textiles. Water-based intumescent coatings are less expensive and release less chemical odour, which increases demand for the product.

Moreover, high product demand in the oil and gas industry is likely to drive market expansion, owing to stringent regulations and an increase in exploration operations around the world. Furthermore, demand from the construction industry is expected to boost market growth over the projection period. In the oil and gas business, intumescent coatings are used to protect onshore and offshore steel structures against fire at temperatures above 1,100°C. They are also used to protect structural steel from moisture and chemicals, which can cause it to become brittle. These coatings defend against pool and jet fires. Rising energy consumption is expected to fuel the oil and gas industry throughout the projected period, driving demand for intumescent coating market revenue..

Intumescent Coatings Market Segment Insights

Intumescent Coatings Technology Insights

The intumescent coatings market is divided into three main categories: water-based, solvent-based, and epoxy-based. The epoxy-based category dominated the market, accounting for more than 58% of revenue in 2022. Epoxy-based intumescent coatings provide excellent passive fire protection by functioning as an insulation barrier in the event of a fire. When subjected to high temperatures, these coatings form a thick layer of char, which increases insulation in the event of a fire.

Intumescent Coatings Application Insights

The intumescent coatings market segmentation, based on application, includes hydrocarbon and cellulosic. The cellulosic category led the market in 2022, accounting for more than 55% of worldwide revenue. By providing heat resistant layers, cellulosic intumescent coatings are primarily utilized in the construction industry to protect unprotected steel structures and ease escape during fire incidents. The rising demand for intumescent coatings in the construction industry, particularly in industrial and commercial structures, is likely to drive market expansion.
