High Temperature Coatings Market Analysis
High Temperature Coatings Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Size, Share, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018-2026
High Temperature coatings or HTCs are used to protect the systems which subjected to high temperature conditions on a regular basis. They are designed to withstand temperatures from 150OC to 800OC. The use of HTCs helps in reducing heat losses, keep corrosion under insulation (CUI) in check, reduce thermal fatigue and maintain efficiency. CUI is the petrochemical industry’s worst complication. It occurs when moisture seeps into the insulation and the high temperature condition is optimal for corrosion. The application of HTCs helps keep the effect of moisture to a minimum and subsequently translates into energy and cost savings.
Low consumer awareness in medium and small scale industries about high temperature corrosion risks is a major challenge for market players. Moreover, raw material availability is dependent upon the oil industry.
High Temperature Coatings Market Taxonomy
On basis of Coating Technology
On basis of Resin type
On basis of End User
Liquid Coatings, either hand applied or sprayed is losing its market, though, it is preferred over powder coatings when specialized paint colors and tolerances are required. Powder coatings offer better durability, toughness and have the environmental advantage of not having any solvents or VOCs.
Epoxy phenolic coatings have high heat and chemical resistance are widely used as coatings in refineries, power generation and secondary containment. Silicone coatings can withstand high temperatures over 550OC. Polyesters tapes are used for masking applications in high temperature equipment. Acrylic coatings offer decorative properties such as color retention and gloss. They hold the largest market share in the HTC market.
The largest end users are the energy and petrochemical industries due to use of heater-treater, separators, furnaces and transport of heated material. HTCs help decrease energy losses and reduce non-productive time. Automotive is also a major end user, coatings are applied on engine components and decreases effect of heat fatigue.
High Temperature Coatings Market Outlook
The companies are adopting various organic and inorganic growth strategies in order to sustain their market position.
