A shipping container is used to transport or store cargo that is imported or exported through ports via sea or road. Shipping container coating is used to protect the container, which is generally made of steel or aluminum, from corrosion. Shipping container coatings are generally classified under two types’ water borne and solvent borne. Solvent borne coatings emit VOC chemicals, which might be carcinogenic, leading to health hazards. To avoid such hazards, companies are focusing on investing in water borne coatings, which might reduce pollution by VOC emissions. Shipping container coating manufacturers are mainly focusing on developing more environment friendly coatings, especially with the trend of converting used containers into picnic houses, cafes and shops across the globe. Hence, the use of shipping container in construction sector requires shipping container coatings to increase its life and provide a new look. Earlier, harmful compounds like sulphur or phosphorous were used for coating the containers but development of water borne shipping container coating has put an end to the use of such harmful compounds.
Shipping Container Coatings Market: Dynamics
Shipping containers are being used widely due to the increase of import and export across the globe. Growing business relation and increasing trade among countries is helping the shipping container market to grow. The production of shipping container is growing due to the growing trades which in turn is leading to growth of shipping container coatings market. Use of shipping containers is increasing in coastal areas as sea transport is cost effective and convenient. The use of shipping containers in construction industry is helping the growth of shipping container coatings market. Constant research and development in water borne shipping container coatings has given rise to environment friendly shipping container coatings, which has boosted the shipping container market.
