Why is There Steady Rise in Demand for High Temperature Coatings in Europe?

“Augmented Need for Heat-Resistant Coatings in Petrochemical Applications”

The application of high temperature coatings in the petrochemical industry has been rising steadily over the years. Applying coatings to high-pressure pumps and vessels is the key market enabler for greater adoption. As the pumps in the petrochemical industry are operated at very high temperatures, they demand protective coatings to reduce damage.

Since hot oils and gases are inherently involved in the industry’s operations, strong protective coatings become a necessity for long-term durability. Thus, high-temperature coatings play a pivotal role in enhancing the lifecycle of high-pressure pumps and vessels in the petrochemical industry, thereby supporting demand growth.

“Escalating Demand for Coatings in Foundry & Refractory Applications”

There has been a strong emergence of demand for high temperature coatings in foundry and refractory applications. High-temperature foundry mold coatings are used for graphite molds to protect molten metals such as uranium that come directly in contact with graphite to reduce carbon pickup.

Majority of industrial components are still produced using die casting and extrusion molding, leading to sustained demand for high-temperature coatings to keep the molding and casting material protected from high temperatures.

Refractory-based temperature coatings are generally made with a dry mix of aluminium oxide, Tennessee ball clay, bentonite, and soluble silicate salt to keep the material suitable for a wide pool of foundry applications.

As such, demand for these coatings is expected to witness a rise during the assessment period on the back of rising foundry and refractory activities.

“Risk-Exposed Sourcing of Raw Materials to Create Roadblocks in Market Growth”

The market has not witnessed large-scale Greenfield investments, resulting in the clustered growth of production bases. Manufacturers of high temperature coatings are dependent on a handful of suppliers for their raw materials such as epoxy, silicone, etc.

This has exposed them to procurement risks, evident in 2020. Therefore, manufacturers need to diversify the sources of their raw materials and balance the risks to maintain the stable production of high temperature coatings at their facilities.

Which Type of High Temperature Coating Brings in High Revenue for Manufacturers?

“Market Players Thriving on Back of High Demand for Silicone High Temperature Coatings”

The European high temperature coatings market, under type segment, is segmented into silicone, epoxy, epoxy novolac, aluminium, polyurethane, perfluoroalkoxy alkane, PPS, PTFE, and others.

Amongst them, silicone high temperature coatings dominate the market by holding 22.6% share and are projected to rise at the rate of 4.4% over the decade.

Silicone-based coatings can endure elongated exposure to high temperatures. Their properties of being moisture- and humidity-resistant helps improves cyclic oxidation resistance. They also provide excellent performance in extreme temperatures, are stable over a wide temperature range, are transparent, carry light transmission capabilities, and are low toxic as well.

The segments that follow are epoxy and epoxy novolac, which hold 18.6% and 16.1% market share, respectively, and are projected to rise at 4.6% and 5.5% CAGRs during the forecast years of 2022-2032. Their chemical-resistant characteristics and high durability are promoting their use, along with epoxy-based products finding enhanced application in other corrosion-resistant applications, thereby fueling segment demand.

Why are Water-based Coatings Popular across Europe?

“Water-based High Temperature Coatings Account for Nearly Three-fourths Market Share”

The European market for high temperature coatings, under technology, is segmented into water-based high temperature coatings, solid-based high temperature coatings, and solvent-based high temperature coatings.

Water-based high temperature coatings hold 72.8% market share, and thus dominate the market. The segment is projected to rise at the rate of 4% during the assessment period.

Water-based coatings make use of water as a liquefying agent as opposed to chemical solvents that emit VOCs or volatile organic compounds having some harmful effects, such as irritating eyes, nose, throat, and sometimes even damaging the central nervous system. The less harmful nature of water-based coatings is driving segmental growth.

Solvent-based coatings hold 23.9% share in the overall market. The segment is projected to rise at the rate of 3.2% on the back of the advantage of solvent-based coatings over water-based coatings, as the former is less prone to environmental conditions, including temperature and humidity. This will propel the demand for solvent-based coatings over the coming years.
