Sealants are defined as those materials that are applied to two or more substrates so as to fill the space between them, thereby restricting the passage of fluids. Sealants are often used in order to help resist relative movement of the substrates that compose the assembly. Ship building industry comprising commercial ship building, cruise ships & ferry boats building and yachts industry are among the prominent consumers of sealants.
Marine sealants serve diverse set of functions ranging from waterproofing, vibration damping to insulation. Here, sealants find a variety of applications both above the water line and below the water line, and are used for sealing hull or deck joints, fittings and trims among others. Some of the prominently used marine sealants are polyurethane, silicone and polysulfide based sealants. Depending on the intended application area, one or more types of sealants are used.
Steady growth in shipbuilding industry owing to increasing sea trade is expected to primarily drive growth of marine sealants market during forecast period. Besides, increasing demand for yachts and leisure boats owing to increasing aspirations of affluent populace across the globe is another factor that is expected to positively impact global marine sealants market during forecast period.
