The Global Cellulosic Fire Protection Intumescent Coating Market was valued at US$ 578.1 million in 2021 and is predictable to reach US$ 793.8 million by 2030; growing at a CAGR of 3.6 % during the forecast period from 2021- 2030.


A coating that reacts with heat and swells a folding time in a controlled way from its original thickness produces carbonaceous char by developing numerous small bubbles which act as passive fire resistance. It has a slow temperature rate with heat fluxes of 100kW/ m2 and is used in buildings.

Growing residential and non-residential building construction, and awareness growth for safety measures along with the need for lightweight weight materials requiring additional protected will led the market growth.

Further, rising demand for gas, coal bed methane, energy, and shale gas investment for the repair of oil & gas drilling devices is anticipated to fuel the demand for cellulose fire intumescent coatings. Such coatings also aid in resistance from weather and corrosion and require lesser maintenance and also incorporate service life.

Waterborne coating is anticipated to share the major share as it is easier to clean, has less exposure to VOCs, and reduces the fire risk.

Prolonged exposure of such coatings in the environment would alter their properties and when exposed to fire, coatings would form a char layer emitting smoke which results in low visibility when evacuation of people. Several developing countries are implementing the building standards & code including acceptance of green buildings is supporting the market expansion owing to the demand for eco-friendly, low-VOC, and sustainable products.

Price fluctuation of raw materials inhibits market growth. Further, a halt in construction & production activities disrupts the supply chain thereby restricting end-user industry growth in the construction and automotive industry.

North America is estimated to deliver the highest market share during the forecast period for cellulosic fire protection intumescent coatings owing to increasing demand from the institutional, residential, and commercial sectors.
