Intumescent Coatings Market Is Projected To Expand At A CAGR Of 5.5% From 2022 To 2030
The global intumescent coatings market size was estimated at USD 1,100.79 million in 2021 and projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2022 to 2030.

Intumescent Coatings Industry Overview

The global intumescent coatings market size was estimated at USD 1,100.79 million in 2021 and projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2022 to 2030. High product demand in the oil & gas sector, owing to stringent regulations, coupled with rise in exploration activities across the globe is likely to propel the market growth. Moreover, the demand from construction segment is expected to fuel market growth during the forecast period. Intumescent coatings are used in the oil & gas industry to provide fire protection to onshore and offshore steel structures at high temperatures of 1,100°C and above. They are also used to protect structural steel from moisture and chemical exposures, which makes the steel brittle. These coatings provide protection against pool fires and jet fires. Increasing energy demand is expected to fuel oil & gas industry, which, in turn, is expected to drive the demand for intumescent coating throughout the forecast period.
