·4 min read

DUBLIN, September 20, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Gelcoat Market Size, Share & Analysis, By Resin Type (Polyester, Vinyl Ester, Epoxy, and Others), By Application Technique (Brush or Roller, Spray Gun, and Others), By Industry Vertical, and By Region, Forecast To 2028" report has been added to's offering.

The global gelcoat market size is expected to reach USD 1,340.3 Million in 2028, and register a CAGR of 12.5% during the forecast period. Increasing consumption of gelcoat as surface coating for fiberglass parts of boats, restaurant seats, bathtubs, etc. and growing demand for the product due to its aesthetic appearance and protection of underlying laminated structure are major factors expected to drive market growth to significant extent.

Gelcoats are less expensive than marine paints, exceptionally resistant to cracking and peeling, and are chemically stable, making it durable, hence these products are highly preferred in marine industry. In automotive industry, gelcoats are applied on automobile components to make it lightweight, thus, increase fuel efficiency of the vehicle. Gelcoats offer resistance to water, osmosis, chemicals, UV-rays, and damages.

Shifting preference for use of closed molding process over open molding process is expected to have a negative impact on adoption of gelcoat, and lowering adoption of polymeric top coating (PTC) for application on wind turbines are major factors that could hamper market growth. In addition, stringent government regulations concerning use of gelcoats and environment safety could hamper market growth.

Increasing number of applications in various industries such as wind, construction, navy, as well as transportation is a key factor driving market revenue growth.
