The size of the global FBE Coatings Market was estimated by Fact.MR, a supplier of competitive intelligence and market research, to be US$ 2.2 billion in 2022. Over the course of the forecast period, which runs from 2022 to 2032, the market is anticipated to grow at a stable CAGR of 5.2%.

Because of their excellent steel adhesion, FBE coatings account for a sizable portion of all available protective solutions on the market. In the oil and gas sector, FBE coatings are frequently utilized for process fuel transportation, upstreaming, and downstreaming. Protective coatings would be necessary for long-term operation of the pipeline infrastructure, which would demand more investments for effective transit and use. It is anticipated that FBE, the most economical and long-lasting coating option, will be used extensively for protective applications.

Owing to the increased time span of steel pipelines with the application of FBE coatings, market growth is expected to progress steadily over the decade.
