Delay of Large-scale Construction Projects amid COVID-19 Pandemic to Obstruct Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic has postponed or delayed various large-scale construction and development projects worldwide. The lack of capital expenditures and record-low consumer spending are currently taking a huge toll on the market. As per the RICS Global Construction Monitor, the Construction Activity Index of Asia Pacific was -26 in the second quarter of 2020. Nationwide lockdown measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus in countries of the region, such as Thailand, Singapore, Japan, and China have halted the production of raw materials, which would hamper growth of this industry.

Urgent Need to Deploy Corrosion Management Measures will Spur Growth

Metals often create compounds, such as sulfides, carbonates, hydroxides, and oxides according to the environment they are exposed to. The NACE International IMPACT stated that corrosion worldwide costs approximately USD 2.5 trillion every year. It holds around 3.4% of the global GDP. The implementation of corrosion management measures can save 15 and 35% of the cost of corrosion across the globe annually. Various industries are nowadays inclining towards lightweight metals. These coatings aid in isolating the surface that is prone to corrosion happening because of multiple environmental elements. However, these coatings contain liquefying substances that can evaporate during a chemical process when exposed to oxygen. It further emits volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Hence, regulatory bodies have restricted the usage of solvent-borne solutions. It may hinder the protective coatings market growth.
