Polyurea Coatings Market: Introduction
Several type of polymer based coatings are available in market with different combinations and functionalities. Polyurea coatings are among the widely used coatings in the global market. Polyurea coatings are primarily obtained by polyaddition reaction of aliphatic/aromatic isocyanate or prepolymer component mixed in equal proportion of ployfuntional mixture of amines. The polyurea raw material i.e. catalyst-free isocyanate and amines, are generally sprayed over the structure in a specific ratio. Demand for polyurea based coatings is expected to witness steady growth in the global market owing to several advantages offered by such coatings over other conventional coatings. Polyurea coatings are hydrophobic and less reactive to most of the chemicals. Apart from chemical inertness, polyurea coatings offer superior physical properties like high surface strength, high thermal stability, high tensile strength along with extreme flexibility. Also, polyurea coatings can be easily pigmented for different colours, can be formulated for flexibility ranging from soft to hard elastomers. Polyurea coatings can be reinforced with fibers as per need while application.
Polyurea Coatings Market: Dynamics
Several advantages offered by polyurea coatings have resulted in them being used in wide range of applications which primarily include concrete coatings, waterproofing applications, pipeline coatings, tank linings, truck bed liners, railcar coatings, floor joint or seam sealants, secondary containment, foam and EPS coating, among others. The growth in construction and infrastructure activities is estimated to be one of the most impactful driving factor for the growth of global polyurea coatings market. Increase in infrastructure spending including construction of subways, emphasis on improvement of public transport, urbanization, etc. are among other drivers for global polyurea coatings market. Moreover, efforts in evaluating polyurea coatings for other applications is estimated to fuel the growth of global polyurea coatings market.
Polyurea coatings application process involves high health risks and require skilled labour. The health risks associated with spraying and toxicity arising due to vapours of amines substrates and exposure to high pressure equipment is estimated to offer restraints to the growth of global polyurea coatings market. Stringent regulations pertaining to use of polyurea coatings certain other applications is expected to impact growth of the market. Also, influenced through the market opportunities, various local players and raw material suppliers have entered the market which is likely to drive the margins southwards.
Polyurea Coatings Market: Segmentation
