Fire protection coatings are additives or fillers added on objects to increase its flame resistance property. These coatings are a must in industries and its design as a preventive measure against untoward accidents and explosions. The global fire protection coatings market report by Market Research Future (MRFR) highlights trends, drivers, opportunities, and challenges for the period of 2022 to 2030 (forecast period).

Market Scope

The global Fire Protection Coatings Market is set to expand at an above-average growth rate during the forecast period owing to demand from end-use industries of automotive, aerospace, marine, building & construction, oil & gas, electrical & electronics, and others. Maintenance of the steel integrity of structures and components in automotives can bode well for the market. Government regulations and stringent emission levels set by them can drive its demand in the automotive sector as well. Advances in nanotechnology can influence the market growth greatly.


The global fire protection coatings market is segmented by type and application.

By type, the market is divided into active and passive fire protection coatings. Among these, the passive fire protection coatings segment is projected to hold the major share in the market owing to its properties of excellent fire performance, durability, and light-weightiness. Passive fire coatings can face immense demand due to its sustainable nature and requirement of minimum maintenance. These coatings involve methods of compartments, structures, concrete, and others. Active fire protection coatings are applied on systems such as sprinklers, water deluges, and alarms. This segment is touted to display an exemplary growth rate during the forecast period.

Applications include oil & gas, buildings and construction, automotive, aerospace, marine, aviation, and others. Among these, buildings and construction is estimated to be the leading segment in this market. This can be attributed to the demand for anti-corrosive measures and flame-retardancy measures. Rise in infrastructural projects and considerable rise in disposable income levels can drive the segment growth exponentially.
