Intumescent coatings type fire protection coatings segment accounted for the largest share
Intumescent coatings type fire protection coatings was the largest type segment of the market, in terms of value in 2016. This high market share is mainly attributed to its usage across various applications, such as commercial buildings, restaurants, hospitals, colleges, residential buildings, skyscrapers, and offices, and the oil & gas industry, among others. The value market of intumescent coatings is higher as compared to cementitious coatings as, intumescent coatings are used in combination with cladding materials. Intumescent coatings require lower maintenance, improve durability, provide longer shelf-life, and also provide corrosion protection for steel structures in buildings. Hence, these properties of intumescent coatings are expected to foster the growth of these type of coatings in the market.
Water-based technology of fire protection coatings accounted for the largest share
The water-based technology segment of the market accounted for the largest share, in terms of both, value and volume, in 2016. Water-based fire protection coatings are extremely safe as they do not contain harmful solvents, are low odor and have low VOC emissions. These are developed to enable customers to meet the stringent emission standards set by various agencies, such as, Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Also, these water-based coatings can withstand high humidity levels during application. The above factors are fueling the demand for the water-based technology in the market.
Fire protection coatings in the building & construction industry is expected to grow at the highest CAGR
The building & construction industry is expected to register the highest growth, in terms of both, value and volume during the forecast period. Fire protection coatings are used in buildings owing to the various benefits that these provide. These coatings prolong the time period of damage that could be caused, providing ample time to evacuate a building in case of fire. Moreover, these also help in the protection of firefighters while controlling the fire and hence help reduce damage to a structure and loss of assets.
Building & construction is one of the major applications of passive fire protection coatings. These are used in construction activities to protect buildings to enable withstanding fire. Such coatings are applied so that the steel structures used in building & construction can withstand a fire and prevent the steel from reaching the critical temperature which could lead it to collapse. Passive fire protection coatings are mainly used in high rise buildings, sports stadiums, residential, and commercial construction.
