DUBLIN, November 24, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The “Anti-fouling paints and coatings market: Global industry trends, share, size, growth, opportunities and forecast 2021-2026” the report was added to offer.

The global antifouling paints and coatings market has reached a value of 8.5 billion US dollars in 2020. Going forward, the publisher expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 9% during 2021-2026. Bearing in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously monitoring and evaluating the direct and indirect influence of the pandemic. This information is included in the report as a major contributor to the market.

Antifouling paints and coatings refer to specialized paints applied to the hulls of ships and offshore structures to minimize or prevent the growth of underwater organisms. They are made from resins, pigments, cuprous oxides and biocides, which inhibit the growth of algae, bacteria, diatoms, barnacles, silt and other marine organisms. Some of the commonly used anti-fouling paints include soft-ground paint, hard-bottom paint, and ablative anti-fouling paints. They are applied to the bottom of boats, yachts and ships to improve the flow of water passing the hull, which minimizes fuel consumption by reducing drag and improving the durability and aesthetic value of the vessel.

The significant growth of the marine and shipbuilding industries across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive impact in the market. In addition, the increasing focus and expense on improving vessel durability and preventing corrosion is driving the market growth. Anti-fouling paints and coatings are used on drilling rigs, production platforms, navigation vessels and inland waterway transport to reduce scuff resistance and prevent fouling organisms from damaging hulls.

In addition, various product innovations, such as the development of environmentally friendly anti-fouling products, act as other growth factors. There is also a growing demand for low friction, metal free, silicone and fluororesin based antifouling paints and coatings, which is helping the market growth. Other factors, including the growing possession of pleasure craft, as well as the growing demand for floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels by the oil and gas industry, are expected to further drive the market.
