The impact of COVID-19 pandemic can be felt across the chemical industry. The growing inability in the production and manufacturing processes, in the light of the self-quarantined workforce has caused a major disruption in the supply chain across the sector. Restrictions encouraged by this pandemic are obstructing the production of essentials such as life-saving drugs.
The nature of operation in chemical plants that cannot be easily stopped and started, makes the operational restrictions in these plants a serious concern for the industry leaders. Restricted and delayed shipments from China have created a price hike in the raw materials, affecting the core of the chemicals industry.

The slacking demand from different impacted industries such as automotive is negatively influencing the growth of the chemical industry. In light of the current crisis, the market leaders are focused to become self-reliant which is expected to benefit the economic growth of different economies in the longer term. Companies are triggering events to restructure and recover from the losses incurred during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Anticorrosion coatings are coatings applied on a surface to prevent it from corrosion. Other desired characteristics of anticorrosion coatings comprise light weight, chemical resistance, abrasion resistance and gloss retention among others. Heavy metals such as zinc and titanium are among major raw materials employed in the production of anticorrosion coatings. Major application segment for anticorrosion coatings include building & construction, automotive, industrial machinery and electronics among others. Building & construction is the most dominant application segment for anticorrosion coatings and this trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period.
Increasing investment in infrastructure mainly across the developing and emerging economies has been a dominant factor driving demand for anticorrosion coatings. Steel is among major raw materials employed in the infrastructure segment. Although steel has high tensile strength, it is prone to corrosion and other substitutes have higher costs. Moreover, surge in economic losses owing to corrosion of structures, has been driving demand for the coatings across the globe. High growth in automotive market is also among foremost factors driving demand for anticorrosion coatings. Several raw materials employed in the production of anticorrosion coatings pose severe threat to environment and human health. The hazards have led to surge in government regulations that have restrained anticorrosion coatings market growth. Research and development to develop bio based anticorrosion coatings are anticipated to offer huge growth opportunity for the market.

Asia Pacific dominated the global demand for anticorrosion coatings in 2013 and this trend is anticipated to continue till the end of 2020. Asia Pacific comprises two of the fastest growing economies across the globe: India and China. China is the largest producer and consumer of anticorrosion coatings. Moreover, high GDP growth and increasing disposable income in Asia Pacific has led to high growth in several end user industries for anticorrosion coatings including automotives, marine, etc. High growth in end user industries is among foremost factors driving demand for anticorrosion coatings in Asia Pacific. Owing to aforementioned factors, Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing geographic segment for anticorrosion coatings.
North America is the second largest market for anticorrosion coatings followed by Europe. Demand for anticorrosion coatings in North America and Europe is expected to foresee a sluggish growth rate primarily owing to market saturation coupled with surge in environmental regulations. Moreover, reviving automotive segment in Europe is anticipated to drive anticorrosion coatings market growth in the region. High growth in the developing economies of South America and Africa is anticipated to offer huge growth opportunity for anticorrosion market.
