Marine Coatings Market by Type (Anti-corrosive, Anti-fouling, and Others) and Based on Chemistry (Epoxy, Polyurethane, and Others) - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2019

Marine coatings are protective layers which are waterproof in nature, and applied to surfaces unprotected from, exposed to or immersed in fresh, brackish, and/or salt water. They are mainly used for coatings ferries, boats, ships and other watercraft, as well as with marine structures, such as offshore oil rigs, drill ships, and oil & gas structures. Marine coatings include base coats, top coats and clear coats, paints, primers, varnishes, and stains, and inks, marking materials, and sealers or surface sealants. Like other types of protective coatings, marine coatings differ in terms of performance, properties, and chemistries. Marine coatings include epoxy fairing compounds, epoxy primers and sealers, wood finishing systems, as well as anti-fouling coatings.
