The global specialty coatings market was worth more than USD xx billion in revenue in 2017 and is expected to cross USD xx billion in 2022, growing at a healthy CAGR of over xx% during the forecast period.
Specialty coatings are used to protect building structures, machinery equipment and others. Specialty coatings are segmented based on type and application. Some of the common specialty coatings include alkyd, epoxy, acrylic urethane, polyamide and others. Some of the benefits of specialty coatings are fire or temperature resistance, antireflection, sealing, substrate compatibility, temporary protection, excellent adhesive properties, and enhanced corrosion protection. Specialty coatings use different technologies like waterborne coatings, high-solids coatings, two-component systems, powder coatings, and radiation-curable coatings.
Based on type, specialty coatings can be
- Corrosion resistant
- Wear Resistant
Based on end-use application specialty coatings market can be
- Electrical & Electronics
- Refineries & oil and gas
- Aerospace & Defense
- Pulp and Paper
- Water and Waste Water Treatment
