Decreasing Ship’s Fuel Usage Compels Demand For Marine Coatings

The marine coatings industry noticed a growing demand for reduced fuel consumption in cargo, which are boosting the prospects of eco-friendly coatings.

“The need to lower fuel consumption is a strong market driver and antifouling coatings applied to ships’ hulls offer one way to combat emissions and reduce fuel consumption,” explained Frost & Sullivan research director Dr. Leonidas Dokos. “Foul-release technology, which also results in substantial fuel savings, is particularly useful for large cargo ships, which consume a lot of fuel.”
