Manufacturers are focusing on the development of anti-corrosive and antifouling marine coatings that comply with environmental regulations and do not harm the marine system.

According to the report, strict regulations governing the shipbuilding industry and the increasing cost of maintaining yachts and marine equipment prompt ship-owners and drilling contractors to use antifouling coatings. Antifouling coatings increase the life of vessels, reduce fuel consumption, and enable compliance with environmental regulations.
