Highest Growing Market


According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Fire Resistant Coatings Market is accounted for $1,085.19 million in 2022 and is expected to reach $1,496.31 million by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. Fire resistant coatings are substances that help minimise fire by applying a coat to the desired surface to guarantee that you have enough coverage to provide the appropriate fire resistant security. Intumescent paint is another name for fire-resistant paint. The most common application of fire resistant coating is to prevent fire and flame from spreading across the surface by leaking gas as they heat up. Fire resistant coatings reduce the danger of fire damage to surfaces. The need for fire-resistant coatings is expected to rise rapidly as a result of increased awareness and stringent fire protection requirements and regulations.

According to Eurostat, the overall construction industry and building construction output growth in Europe (EU-28) was 2.6% and 2.4% in 2019.

Market Dynamics:


Increasing global awareness, new rules, and a greater emphasis on safety measures

The increasing frequency of fire incidents resulting in injuries, deaths, and property damage has resulted in the implementation of many laws, regulations, and standards for fire safety and fire protection. Europe and North America have the most safety standards and regulations in this area when compared to other locations. As newly constructed buildings and processing plants must fulfil the required safety and fire resistance standards, the implementation of severe rules and norms is increasing the demand for fire-resistant coatings. Given the prospects for expansion, market participants are focused on developing new and innovative products that meet demanding safety and fire protection regulations.


Availability of low-cost alternatives for some applications

The usage of sophisticated fire-resistant coating in all applications is prohibitively expensive. The cost of coatings is an essential consideration when selecting fire-coating materials and the application process. High-end fire-resistant coating may not be an economical solution for applications with less tight criteria and low volumes. Active fire protection, such as fire extinguishers and other low-cost cementitious coatings are less expensive and favoured over other fire-resistance coatings in some applications. As a result, the availability of low-cost substitutes is limiting the coating market in several applications.


Growing demand for fire-resistant coatings in renovation projects

Fire-resistant coatings are utilised not only in new construction projects, but also in the maintenance of existing commercial and residential structures and buildings. Aside from fire protection, these coatings are resistant to weather and corrosion. They require fewer repairs and have a longer service life. People are becoming more aware of the benefits of these coatings and are incorporating them into both repair and new building projects. According to the European Union, over 35% of buildings in Europe are over 50 years old, with roughly 0.4-1.2% of buildings refurbished per year. With a greater emphasis on clean energy and building safety, stiffer standards for renovating older buildings are in force. This aspect has the potential to enhance global demand for fire-resistant coatings.


Concerns related to coating application and durability

Prolonged exposure to hostile environments affects the characteristics of intumescent coatings, resulting in the orange-peel effect, which is a key concern, associated with their use. Moreover, incorrect application and pre-application surface treatments cause the coatings to droop on the substrates. Furthermore, when exposed to fire, the coatings swell and generate a burned layer. This produces smoke, which might impair the visibility of persons attempting to flee a specific region. The leading players in the intumescent coatings market are concentrating on creating coatings that provide fire protection, produce less smoke, have a thinner film, and have good aesthetic features. These advancements will improve the demand for intumescent coatings.

Covid-19 Impact

The global business ecology was shattered by the Covid-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, this epidemic has had a significant detrimental influence on a big number of fire-resistant coatings industries in a variety of ways. This is due to the fact that the governments' lockdowns and social distancing measures have had a substantial impact on demand and consumption of fire-resistant coatings. However, the fire-resistant coating business is expected to develop in the post-pandemic period as countries' economies recover.

The intumescent segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The intumescent segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. The majority of uses for this kind of coating, which can be waterborne or solvent-borne, are in the building and construction industry. Additionally, it is better than cementitious replacements since it is thinner, greatly reduces the weight of the substrates and structures as a whole, and has higher fire protection qualities. The aforementioned benefits of the intumescent type of fire-resistant coating drive this market's expansion.

The solvent-borne segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The solvent-borne segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to the fact that solvent-borne coatings often outlast aqueous coatings in terms of durability. Additionally, solvent-based fire-resistant coatings are frequently applied to structures under construction as a thermal barrier during fire threats; as a result, the expansion of the global construction sector propels the expansion of this market segment.

Region with highest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period, as a result of increased awareness and the focus on safety measures in nations like China and India. Additionally, it is anticipated that rising foreign direct investment (FDI) for South East Asia's economic development will strengthen the region's building and construction sector. This element has also given the sector lucrative new growth potential.

Region with highest CAGR:

Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to numerous fire safety standards in the manufacturing, building, and construction sectors. Europe is dominated by nations like Germany and the United Kingdom. A number of industry participants also provide fire-resistant coatings materials that adhere to European norms. In order to comply with European fire prevention laws for public facilities including hospitals, theatres, cinemas, and schools, ICA Group, for instance, produces Prometea fire-retardant coatings.
