Increasing adoption of innovative technologies in the APAC

Asia Pacific marine coatings industry is slated to foresee considerable expansion through 2027, driven by an upsurge in the deployment of innovative technologies for the development and launch of various products.

For instance, in March 2021, I-Tech AB’s antifouling technology, Selektope, made it to the headlines for being a major component in Chugoku Marine Paints’ domestic coating range and in a new product for the Japanese leisure boat industry.

Escalating demand for antifouling paint

Typically applied to the underwater hull of ships, antifouling paint helps in preventing or discouraging the growth of organisms that get attached to the hull. The paints contain self-polishing resin and biocide, which helps in the prevention of biofouling organisms.

Furthermore, the usage of self-polishing copolymer paint helps in releasing biocide at an almost constant rate, which is another advantage propelling marine coatings industry growth through the estimated period. The mechanism of self-polishing ensures a consistency in the renewal of paint film and helps in the release of biocide on the surface for preventing the settlement and attachment of biofoulants.
