  4. 4. Intumescent Coatings Market - Overview and Definitions <ul><li>Intumescent Coatings are increasingly being used in the Passive Fire Protection Systems market as compared to Boards and Spray Applied Fire Resistant Materials (SFRMs) due to added benefits associated with them </li></ul><ul><li>Coatings are categorised according to severity of the fire they are intended to protect against: </li></ul><ul><li>(1) Cellulosic - intended to simulate natural carbonaceous-type materials such as wood and paper, these fires have relatively slow heat rise and peak temperatures of 950°C </li></ul><ul><li>(2) Hydrocarbon - intended to represent fires fuelled by oil spills or gas clouds, characterized by higher heat fluxes and faster time to a maximum temperature of 1100 °C </li></ul><ul><li>(3) Jet Fires - a unique type of hydrocarbon fire caused by pressurized gases or fuels that are released through an orifice and then ignited. These produce even higher heat fluxes: peak temperatures can exceed 1200 °C and generate highly erosive forces </li></ul><ul><li>Intumescent Coatings are mainly used in the Hydrocarbon and the Cellulosic Markets </li></ul>Snapshot : Intumescent Coatings Market “ Intumescent coatings can be defined as the foaming and swelling of a material when exposed to high surface temperatures or flames”. Basically used on Structural Steel, Intumescent Coatings function via formation of an insulating multi-cellular char which forms in-situ when the coating is exposed to high temperatures. The char acts to insulate the steel in a fire situation and thus reduces the heat-up rate of the structure.  In effect the reduction in the heat-up rate prolongs the structure’s mechanical properties and as such gives longevity to its load bearing capability. As the intumescent doesn’t actively tackle a blaze it is known as passive fire protection. N64D – 39
  5. 5. Industry Challenges Industry Challenges High R&D Expenditure Calls for Significant Investment Testing of Intumescent Products on Different National Regulations within Western Europe Application Issues with Single Component Intumescent coating products Increasing Raw Materials cost puts pressure on Coating Manufacturers Increasing the Durability of Water-Based Intumescent Coatings N64D – 39 Intumescent Coatings Market: Impact of Top Five Industry Challenges (U.S. + Europe), 2009-2015 Source: Frost & Sullivan
  6. 6. Market Drivers Fire Protection Requirements Drive Demand Potential Growth Opportunities for Epoxy-based intumescent coatings is Expected to Drive Demand Aesthetic and Durability Advantages of Intumescent Coatings Drive Sales Market Drivers Trend towards Increasing Multi-Functionality of Intumescent Coating products N64D – 39 Intumescent Coatings Market: Market Drivers Ranked in Order of Impact (U.S. + Europe), 2009-2015 Source: Frost & Sullivan
  7. 7. Market Restraints Global Economic Downturn Decline in Construction activities In U.S. and Western Europe Market Restraints N64D – 39 Intumescent Coatings Market: Market Restraints Ranked in Order of Impact (U.S. + Europe), 2009-2015 Source: Frost & Sullivan
  8. 8. Industry Forces Intumescent Coatings Market: Industry Forces (U.S. + Europe), 2008 N64D – 39 Note: Thorough analysis of all these forces is contained in the report itself. Entry into the intumescent coatings market is not easy. The technology for formulating intumescent coatings is difficult to develop or duplicate. In addition, the products must be fire tested at a high cost. Therefore, it is difficult for newer companies, especially those in low-cost regions of the world, to enter the market and be competitive.
  9. 9. Market & Regional Revenue Segmentation N64D – 39 <ul><li>In 2008, Western Europe accounted for 75.4 percent of the market revenues while 24.6 percent was contributed by the U.S. </li></ul><ul><li>For total hydrocarbon market, Western Europe accounted for 85.4 percent of the market revenues while 14.6 percent was contributed by the U.S region in 2008. </li></ul><ul><li>For total cellulosic market, Western Europe accounted for 73.4 percent of the market revenues while 26.6 percent was contributed by the U.S. region in 2008 </li></ul><ul><li>In 2008, UK was the largest intumescent coatings market in Western Europe. In Germany, only 30 percent of commercial construction buildings have exposed structural steel, which restricts the size of the German Cellulosic Intumescent coatings market. </li></ul>Intumescent Coatings Market Revenue Segmentation: (U.S. + Western Europe), 2008 Intumescent Coatings Market Revenue Segmentation: (Western Europe), 2008 Source: Frost & Sullivan
  10. 10. Markets & Products Trends <ul><li>CELLULOSIC MARKET TRENDS </li></ul><ul><li>Trend towards Increasing Multi-Functionality of Intumescent Coating Products </li></ul><ul><li>An overall trend toward increased multi-functionality in coatings should also have a positive effect on the fire-suppressant coatings sector. The market is demanding additional functionality above and beyond aesthetic appeal and protective properties. Examples include cool roof, self-cleaning, and biocidal coatings. It is not a big leap to suggest that fire protection capability will eventually be incorporated into a broader set of coatings. Of course, ultimately more expanded use will be determined by economics, i.e. whether or not the technology can be achieved at an appropriate price point </li></ul><ul><li>HYDROCARBON MARKET TRENDS </li></ul><ul><li>Shift in Product usage from Cementitious Materials to Intumescent Coatings in the Onshore Hydrocarbon Market </li></ul><ul><li>The Onshore Hydrocarbon market was traditionally using Light Weight Cementitious Materials as a measure for Passive Fire Protection systems. Major fire mishaps in the past, for instance the Piper Alpha Platform fire, have forced the facility owners to move away from the Cementitious Materials towards the Intumescent Coatings. </li></ul>Source: Frost & Sullivan N64D – 39
