Global Gelcoat Market is valued approximately at USD 872 million in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 13.2% over the forecast period 2020-2027. Gelcoat are materials utilized to facilitate a higher quality finish on the visible surface of a fiber-reinforced composite. The conventional gelcoats are thermosetting polymers based on epoxy and unsaturated polyester resin chemistry. These coats are applied to molds in liquid state and offer numerous properties such as water absorption, UV degradation and corrosion resistance. The gelcoat market is driven by the rise in demand for high performance composite materials across the globe. Application of these gelcoats in automobiles to reduce weight and enhance fuel efficiency of vehicles such as railways, buses and autos propel the demand for gelcoats. For Instance: The latest standard set by the EU in 2015 specifically stated the target as the diesel vehicles for considerable NOx reduction. Euro VI limits for heavy-duty vehicles were announced in Regulation 595/2009, and were revised by Regulations 582/2011 and 133/2014. The Euro 6 limits for light-duty vehicles came prior and were presented along with Euro 5 limits under Regulation 715/2007, promulgated in 2007. Also, these coats are widely used in marine industry as ships and recreational boats are typically made using glass fibre which needs these coating on ships hulls, decks and power boats. Thus, the mounting marine industry also fuels the market growth. As per the UNCTAD Maritime Transport outlook 2018, maritime trade expanded by 4% in 2017. However, transition towards closed molding process impedes the growth of the market over the forecast period of 2020-2027. Although, new areas of application for example use of gel coats in the Wind energy sector to coat wind blades presents a lucrative opportunity for the market.

The regional analysis of global Gelcoat market is considered for the key regions such as Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America and Rest of the World.
