Global antifouling market still growing

The global antifouling paints & coatings market is projected to reach USD 9.22 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 8.6% between 2016 and 2021.

High demand of antifouling paints & coatings from the shipping industry is propelling the growth of this market.

The copper-based antifouling paints & coatings segment accounted for the largest share of the global antifouling paints & coatings market in 2015. Copper-based antifouling paints & coatings are environment-friendly and ensure fouling-free surfaces of ships or boats, which result in substantial fuel savings and consequently reduce emission of greenhouse gases.
