Cathodic Protection Market Key Research Findings
- Cathodic protection market surpassed revenues worth US$ 4,000 Mn in 2017.
- The cathodic protection market is expected to record a steady CAGR of nearly 6.0% through 2028, to exceed revenues worth US$ 7,000 Mn.
- Regulatory framework continues to play an important role in the growth of cathodic protection market -
- Government bodies such as the Environment Protection Agency, European Environment Agency (EEA), and United States Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), have imposed stringent regulations related to corrosion protection in industries.
- According to the study of the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE), titled 'International Measures of Prevention, Application and Economics of Corrosion Technology (IMPACT),’ the costs associated with corrosion protection worldwide surpassed US$ 2,500 Bn in 2013, which was equivalent to 3.4% of the world’s GDP at the time.
- It has been noted that using currently available corrosion control practices, only around 15% to 35% of this total global cost of corrosion can be reduced, which is between only US$ 375 Bn to US$ 875 Bn. This will significantly impact growth of the cathodic protection market.
- Asia Pacific is projected to lead the global cathodic protection market, underpinned by the requirement for corrosion protection systems, and services entailed by construction and infrastructure development activities, along with the maintenance activities associated with old structures.
- Cathodic protection market will also witness significant growth opportunities in the Middle East & Africa, owing to surging demand from the industrial sectors, particularly in the oil & gas industry.
- Cathodic protection by means of impressed current remains preferred among end-users. Revenues from the impressed current-based cathodic protection accounted for bulk shares of the market in 2018. Demand for impressed current cathodic protection remains undergird by increasing demand for corrosion protection for underground pipelines and subsea pipelines in suburban and rural areas.
