Opportunities: Growing demand for fire-resistant coatings in renovation projects

Fire-resistant coatings are not only used in new construction projects but also in the maintenance of old projects and buildings for commercial and residential purposes. Apart from protection against fires, these coatings provide resistance against weather and corrosion. They require less maintenance and also provide extended service life. People are becoming aware of their benefits and are including these coatings in both renovation and new construction projects. As per the European Union, around 35% of the buildings in Europe are over 50 years old, and only 0.4–1.2% of the buildings are renovated each year. With increasing focus on clean energy and building safety, stricter regulations are in effect to renovate older buildings. This factor can potentially increase the demand for fire-resistant coatings across the globe.


Intumescent coatings segment is estimated for a larger market share in 2020.

Intumescent coatings are either solvent-borne or waterborne and are mainly used in buildings and construction. The use of cementitious coatings increases the overall weight of the structures. Intumescent coatings are advantageous over their substitutes, as they are thinner, exhibit better fire protection properties, and significantly reduce the overall weight of the structures and substrates.

Europe projected to account for the largest share of the fire-resistant coatings market during the forecast period.

Europe accounted for the largest share of the global fire-resistant coatings market in 2019. The growth of the fire-resistant coatings market in this region is mainly attributed to stringent government regulations, an industrial initiative for sustainable development, and a strong emphasis on protection against fire. Moreover, the practice of constructing green buildings and adopting green coatings offers many opportunities for the growth of the market in the region. The European market is mainly dominated by the EU-5 countries, especially Germany and the UK.
