Market Overview:

The global boat primer market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for boats and rising awareness about boat care and maintenance. Boat primer is used as a protective coating on the bottom of boats made from polyurethane, zinc base, propylene, or other materials. It helps in preventing corrosion, osmosis, and abrasion. Boat primer is also used as an anti-fouling agent to prevent marine growth on the hull of boats.

Global Boat Primer Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Boat primer is a type of paint that is specifically designed to be used on boats. It is formulated to resist the effects of water and weather, and it can help to protect the boat from corrosion. Boat primer is also non-toxic, which makes it safe for use in areas where food or drink are being prepared.

Polyurethane (Pu):

Polyurethane is a polymer, which is manufactured by the catalytic reaction of an organic compound (such as butane) with urethane. Polyurethanes are used in various end-use industries including construction, automotive and marine. Construction industry accounts for major market share of polyurethanes followed by automotive and then comes the marine sector.

Zinc Base Bottom:

Zinc base bottom is a special formulation used as a substitute for traditional epoxy-based boat primers. It is formulated using zinc metal and polymer resin. The unique properties of ZBB, such as high adhesion to fiberglass and the ability to fill large surface areas, make it an ideal product for use in boat primer applications.

The market size was estimated at USD 31 million in 2016.

Application Insights:

The anti-corrosion application segment led the global boat primer market in 2017 and is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The growing marine industry, particularly in Asia Pacific and Latin America, is anticipated to augment demand for corrosion inhibitors. In addition, increasing government spending on infrastructure development projects that include waterways across countries such as China, India and Australia will boost product demand over the next eight years.

Asia Pacific will witness a rise in demand for boats owing to rapid urbanization along with rising disposable income levels among consumers there. Moreover, favorable government policies promoting recreational activities including water sports are expected to fuel product consumption further driving its demand from 2018 to 2030 globally.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest-growing regional market at a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing demand for marine transportation in countries such as China, India, and Japan. Moreover, growing awareness regarding the advantages of using these products among consumers will drive the product demand over the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific region is characterized by a large number of manufacturers that cater to various industries including construction and marine transportation with boats and other watercrafts. The availability of raw materials like polyurethane (PU) base bottom in abundance along with low labor cost in this region has made it one of the most attractive regions for boat primer manufacturing across different parts of world including North America and Europe.

North America was estimated as one among largest markets for boat primers globally on account rising concerns about energy security coupled with an increasing need for efficient maritime transport system within U.S.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for boats and marine products owing to the growth in tourism industry
  • Rising disposable income of consumers leading to an increase in spending on leisure activities such as boating
  • Proliferation of boat dealers and manufacturers, which is resulting in increased product availability and competitive prices
  • Growing popularity of fishing, sailing, and other water sports among people of all age groups
  • Technological advancements that are making boats more efficient, durable, and affordable
