Europe Protective Coatings Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Europe Protective Coatings Market according to our research experts:

Rising Demand from Infrastructure Segment

  • Infrastructure accounts for the largest share of the market and is also estimated to be the fastest growing. Rails, bridges, and roads constitute major segments of the infrastructure. With the increase in population, expansions in infrastructure have become an inevitable part of socio-economic development.
  • Protective coatings are used in overhead structures, like flyovers and bridges, particularly in refurbishment situations, in order to improve the durability and to delay the replacement in structures. They are used to reduce the damage on the concrete surfaces and to stop or significantly reduce the rate of steel reinforcement corrosion.
  • The need to invest more in Europe’s infrastructure has been heavily discussed in the context of the EU’s post 2020 Multiannual Financial Framework. The European Commission, today, is proposing to invest EUR 1 billion in 39 transport projects, which will unlock a total of EUR 4.5 billion of public and private co-financing by 2030.
  • Under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), EUR 24.05 billion will be made available from the EU’s 2014-2020 budget to co-fund TEN-T projects of common interest in the EU Member States. Of these, EUR19.3 billion have so far been legally committed.
  • The aforementioned factors have been boosting the demand for protective coatings, in the recent times.
