Antifouling paints and coatings refer to specialized paints applied to the hulls of ships and offshore structures to minimize or prevent the growth of sub-aquatic organisms. They are manufactured using resins, pigments, cuprous oxides and biocides, which inhibit the growth of algae, bacteria, diatoms, barnacles, slime and other marine organisms. Some of the commonly used antifouling paints, include soft-bottom paint, hard-bottom paint and ablative antifouling paints. They are applied to the bottom of the boats, yachts and ships to improve the flow of water passing the hull, which minimizes fuel consumption by reducing the drag and enhancing the durability and aesthetic value of the ship.
Significant growth in the marine and shipbuilding industries across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive impact on the market. Furthermore, increasing focus and expenditures on improving vessel durability and preventing corrosion are providing a thrust to the market growth. Antifouling paints and coatings are used on drilling rigs, production platforms, shipping vessels and inland waterways transport to reduce frictional resistance and prevent fouling organisms from damaging the hulls. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the development of environment-friendly antifouling products, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. There is also a growing demand for low-friction, metal-free and silicone- and fluoro resin-based antifouling paints and coatings, which is contributing to the market growth. Other factors, including increasing ownership of leisure boats, along with the growing demand for floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels by the oil and gas industry, are anticipated to drive the market further.
