Glass Flake Coatings Sales from 2016-2020 Vs Future Market Projections for 2021-2031

From 2016 to 2020, sales of glass flake coatings expanded at under 5% CAGR, with growth majorly underpinned by extensive uptake across such key industrial verticals as oil & gas, chemicals & petrochemicals and marine industries respectively.

Prospects dipped significantly in 2020, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, attributed to an abrupt cessation of industrial activities such as oil & gas exploration and drilling. Hence, growth prospects have been revised to project a more modest outlook to be valued at just under US$ 2 billion and expanding at a CAGR of 3% until 2031.

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

How is a Flourishing Shipbuilding Industry Providing Tailwinds to Glass Flake Coating Sales?

As international trade and commerce continues to expand, investment in appropriate infrastructure such as ports and ships is also increasing. Major shipbuilding corporations are emphasizing on incorporating durable, long-lasting and robust construction material invulnerable to corrosion, abrasion or damage from abiotic elements.

As ships are constantly at sea, they are extremely prone to frequent damage due to corrosion as a result of constant exposure to water, air and other undesired external agents, leading to increased maintenance cycles. Hence, glass flake coatings help prevent this damage, as well as provide enhanced thermal stability.

Will Increased Spending on Pipeline Infrastructure Projects Augment Demand for Glass Flake Coatings?

With the world’s insatiable demand for energy increasing, governments worldwide are implementing various projects, including pipelines to transport oil & natural gas. This is opening up growth frontiers for glass flake coatings in the forthcoming decade.

Major construction projects currently in the pipeline include the Druzhba Pipeline Extension Project, the West-East Gas Pipeline Phase IV project and the Pluto LNG Expansion Project among others. These pipes require heavy insulation against external shocks to prevent any damage, thus elevating prospects for glass flake coatings.

Country-wise Analysis

How Will the U.S Shape Future Glass Flake Coating Demand?

Demand for glass flake coatings was valued at over US$ 400 million across the U.S. in 2020. Extensive uptake is anticipated across the oil & gas segment in the wake of surging exploration and extraction projects likely to be implemented across the future.

According to NES Fircroft, as of 2019, ten of the biggest oil & gas exploration projects contributed over US$ 207 billion. Furthermore, the incumbent government has pledged US$ 253.4 million for the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) which will see implementation of stricter safety standards during exploration projects, uplifting demand.

Why are Prominent Manufacturers of Glass Flake Coatings Eyeing China?

China is anticipated to surpass US$ 380 million by 2031, expanding at nearly 6% CAGR across the forecast period. Extensive development of port infrastructure to facilitate foreign trade is enhancing investments in vessel safety, thus heightening deployment.

As per the China Association of the National Shipbuilding Industry (CANSI), output for Q1 2021 was nearly 10 million deadweight tonnage (dwt), an increase of nearly 40%. Hence, manufacturers are finding healthy ground for glass flake coatings production to help shipping giants prevent losses due to corrosion and abrasion.
