Drivers and Restraints

Rising Adoption of Anti Fouling Coating in Oil Exploration Activities to Enhance Market Growth

Marine anti-fouling coatings are used extensively in passenger, offshore, and cargo boats to coat the hull of ships. Anti-fouling coatings reinforce the hull to protect it from several damages. It eliminates the formation of fungus, green algae, and other bacteria and ensures the safety of hull surfaces from cracks and other damages. Marine anti-fouling coating protects the hull against corrosion and other damages. It is used in boat paints to eliminate seaweed, barnacles, and slime to damage the hull of the boat. Furthermore, the marine anti-fouling coatings use biocide to kill the organisms present on slimes, weed, and fungus and eliminate the growth of impurities on the hull. Thus this factor can drive the marine anti-fouling coatings market growth.

However, the regulations regarding the manufacturing activities of marine anti-fouling coatings are likely to hamper the market growth.
