Intumescent Coatings Market

Intumescent Coatings Market Primed For Growth By Rising Demand For Fire Protection

The Global Intumescent Coatings Market Size Is Estimated To Be Valued At US$ 1.29 Bn In 2024 And Is Expected To Exhibit A CAGR Of 7.9% Over The Forecast Period 2024-2031.

Intumescent coatings are fire-resistant coatings that expand into an insulating carbon char when exposed to fire or heat. These coatings offer protection against flame spread and aid in preventing the structural elements from reaching their critical failure temperatures. They find wide usage in protecting steel and wood substrates in industrial and commercial buildings.

Intumescent coatings work as a thermal barrier and effectively slow down the transfer of heat, thus providing more time for occupants to escape and for firefighters to control the situation in case of a fire outbreak. They provide up to four hours of fire protection for structural steel and can be applied to both new construction projects as well as repair and renovation of existing structures. Growing concerns regarding fire safety in infrastructure and tightening of fire protection norms across major economies have propelled the demand for intumescent coatings in recent years.
