Marine coatings are used in marine environments for protection against salt water,
corrosion, fouling, and UV radiation. The protection of the ship both above and below
the waterline is crucial. The coatings adhere to virtually any surface and make them
impervious to water. Marine coatings help prevent UV radiation damage, above the
waterline, while fouling and corrosion, is prevented below the waterline. Boat docks,
boat hulls, or any other surface that is exposed to water can also be sealed with
marine coatings to prevent corrosion. An increase in life of marine vessels and
equipment is observed on application of marine coatings.

There is a tendency of corrosion due to exposure to hostile marine environments.
The consequences of corrosion are larger than the price incurred in preventing it,
hence marine coatings have become a vital part of the shipping and shipbuilding
industries. In addition, fuel consumption is reduced if the ship is in optimal shape.
The major challenges are environmental regulations against leachable coatings.
High VOC coats on leaching have an adverse effect on marine ecosystems.
Furthermore, oil price instability has led to raw material price fluctuations which is
expected to slow down market growth in the forecast period.
Anti-fouling agents are applied on the marine vessels and equipment to prevent
bio-fouling, which is the growth of algae, micro-organisms, plants, and animals on
wetted surfaces. Increase in drag is observed due to bio-fouling which results in
soaring fuel costs. The application of foul releasing agents makes the surface of
materials smooth, low friction and slippery, preventing fouling organisms to attach to
the surface. These are eco-friendly substitutes for anti-fouling agents.
The largest end user of anti-fouling agents is the marine industry. As it operates in
the midst of a highly corrosive saline environment. Coating reduces the frequent
need for the expensive process of dry docking, helping minimize operating costs.
The oil & gas industry employs marine coatings on subsea equipment that are
subjected to hostile pressure and temperature conditions in deep-water and
ultra-deep-water zones.
Marine Coatings Market Outlook
Asia Pacific is the largest market for marine coatings. This is driven by both, the
marine and oil & gas industry. Increasing demand for energy in emerging economies
of India, China, Indonesia, Philippines, and ASEAN has boosted exploration and
production activities in this region. Moreover, demand for goods has been followed
by increased shipping and shipbuilding activity in this region, which in turn has driven
the marine coatings market. In addition, the development of this region as a low cost
manufacturing zone has also increased shipping.
North America and Europe are the largest markets for boats, yachts, and cruise
liners, though these account for a relatively small market share in the marine
industry. The luxury cruise liner segment is the fastest growing in these regions.
Middle East and North Africa are crude oil rich zones. The oil tanker segment is a
major player in this region. The oil produced in these regions is exported to Asian,
European and North American markets.
Latin American market has witnessed growth in both energy and marine industry,
though growth is sluggish due to complex trade laws between countries and poor
port infrastructure. However, increased private sector engagement in modernization
of ports and regulatory improvements can be drivers for the marine industry.
The requirement of special purpose ships in the oil and gas industry is growing. As
production moves to deep-water and ultra-deep-water, there is an increased
requirement for specially designed drill ships and exploratory ships. In 2010, Maersk
commissioned the Viking, a US$ 650 million drillship to drill in depths of excess of
3000m water depth. Further developments in this segment is expected in the
forecast period. Major players in the marine coatings market include Nippon paint
marines Co. Ltd., Hempel A/S, Jotun A/S, PPG Industries Inc., AkzoNobel NV,
DuPont, Axalta Coating Systems, Engineered marine coatings LLC, Chugoku Marine
Paints Ltd., Advanced Marine Coating AS, KCC Corp., Kansai Paint Co. Ltd.
