As per our Analysis, some of the prominent market factors and trends identified in the Global Pipe Coatings Market include increasing chemical industries owing to rapid industrialization in the developing countries such as China, India and Japan; rising demand for crude oil pipeline transportation through underwater, and rising environmental concerns in order to curb the oil spills and gas leakages from the oil & gas industry owing to the pipeline damages. Moreover, the demand for pipe coatings is predicted to witness a significant growth over the assessment period due to surging water treatment industry. Rising population across the globe, increases the demand for water supply is anticipated to be an important driver for pipe coatings market during the review period. The biggest challenges in manufacturing pipeline coatings for construction projects in unpredictable environments, compatibility with new developments in steel pipe technology, installing pipelines in marine and other deeper environments, pipelines operating at higher temperature environments impose emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) threat, pipelines carrying increasingly aggressive materials, under harsher conditions through more difficult environments, and customers increasingly interested in cost reduction of Pipe Coatings. However, implementation of strict regulations by various government bodies have restricted the use of toxic organic chemicals used in the production of pipe coatings, which is expected to hamper the growth of the market.
Pipe Coatings are manufactured for various industries in order to protect them from chemical reactions and increase the working life of pipelines. These coatings provide excellent resistance to alkalis and acids, broad temperature range functionality, strong adhesion, resistance to electricity, good bendability, and also internal coatings enhance the fluid flow. Epoxy coatings are good at reducing the friction between the fluid and wall of the pipeline. These properties have major applications in transporting crude oil, and hazardous chemicals through pipelines to different regions. Additionally, they are used to collect and transport turbid and polluted water from different sources to water treatment plants which in turn used for drinking water and other related purposes.
