“Corrosion is an irreversible phenomenon of metals with its environment that results in consumption of the metal or its dissolution into the material of a component of the environment," according to the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry. Corrosion of metals can be defined as the surface disintegration of metals or alloys within a specific environment. Some metals have a high corrosion resistance due to a variety of factors such as the nature of the chemical reaction, chemical constituents, and others.

Corrosion is a critical industrial issue that affects metals and causes direct and indirect economic loss. There are several methods for preventing corrosion, including protective coating, galvanization, cathodic protection, and corrosion inhibitors. Among all of these methods, volatile corrosion inhibitors are the most commonly used for temporary metal protection. Volatile corrosion inhibitors are corrosion inhibitors that are applied to ferrous or non-ferrous metals. Volatile corrosion inhibitors are a novel corrosion protection method in which the organic or inorganic chemical compounds that protect the metal surface disperse and condense on the metal surface, making it less corrosive. In general, volatile corrosion inhibitors are used when surface protective treatment appears ineffective. Volatile corrosion inhibitors are preferred in industries such as offshore drilling, storage tanks, automotive underbodies, and naval vessels, petrochemical and chemical.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors Market Growth?

Corrosion is spreading all over the world. The market for volatile corrosion inhibitors is being propelled by the rapid growth of various end-use industries such as automotive, marine, and packaging, among others. Automobile production in BRIC countries, for example, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7% to 9% over the forecast period.

Furthermore, significant growth in the use of volatile corrosion inhibitors in packaging will drive the market over the forecast period. This is primarily due to an improving economy, increased adoption of VCI-based packaging, the expansion of manufacturing industries, and low raw material prices, among other factors.

What are the Challenges Faced by the Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors Industry?

The marine industry, particularly the shipbuilding sector, is expected to slow during the forecast period due to a variety of global economic factors, resulting in lower demand for the volatile corrosion inhibitors market during the forecast period.

Why is Asia-Pacific emerging as an Opportunistic Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors Market?

Asia Pacific dominates the global volatile corrosion inhibitors market in terms of consumption and production. This is primarily due to the significant growth of the Asia Pacific Region's construction, electronic, and automotive industries, particularly in China and India. Furthermore, due to low labor costs, less stringent environmental regulations, and low manufacturing costs, volatile corrosion inhibitors manufacturers are focusing on strategic investments in China and India, providing impetus for the volatile corrosion inhibitors market's growth.

The China volatile corrosion inhibitors market is expected to grow at a healthy rate during the forecast period. Corrosion protective coatings, on the other hand, emit high levels of VOC during the drying process, such as those based on solvent-borne technology.
