Corrosion Monitoring Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2018 - 2026

Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC593


Corrosion is a electrochemical process of transforming alloys and metals into hydroxides and aqueous salts. Anodic and cathodic are the two reactions that generally occur in the corrosion process. Anodic reaction involves ionization of metal atoms. The process of monitoring and preventing corrosion on metals is known as corrosion monitoring. Probes are the most important component in the corrosion monitoring process. Probes are electromechanical, electrical, or mechanical. These probes are introduced into steam process and exposed out of the process. Corrosion monitoring process helps in providing accurate measurement of metal being loosed and rate of corrosion in the various industrial applications. Weight loss coupons, microbial, electrical resistance, hydrogen penetration, galvanic current, linear polarization and electrical resistance are the most popular techniques of corrosion monitoring.

Market Dynamics

The rapidly growing end-use industries and increasing awareness towards corrosion monitoring techniques are the driving factors for the growth of corrosion monitoring market. Strict government norms regarding the safety at work place will also drive the market for corrosion monitoring in coming years. Also, old infrastructure or machinery in ancient industries which leads to the corrosion of metals is likely to drive the market for corrosion monitoring. The downstream projects in oil & gas sector make extensive use of corrosion monitoring process, thereby driving the market growth. However, huge investment required to setup corrosion monitoring equipment hampers the growth of corrosion monitoring market. Moreover, there is setback in the upstream projects of oil & gas sector which is restraining the market for corrosion monitoring. The sudden increase of corrosion monitoring techniques in chemical, energy, and power industries offers huge growth opportunity for the corrosion monitoring manufacturers over the forecast period.

Market Classification and Overview

The global corrosion monitoring market can be segmented based on type, technique, end-use industry, and region. Intrusive and non-intrusive are the two major types of corrosion monitoring process. Corrosion coupons, electrical resistance, linear polarization resistance, galvanic technique, and ultrasonic thickness measurement segment is projected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period owing to the ease in operations, rapid monitoring process, and accuracy. Oil & gas, chemicals, manufacturing, power generation and pulp & paper are the various end-use industries that are extensively using corrosion monitoring technique. Oil & gas industry is the largest revenue generator for the corrosion monitoring market. Oil & gas sector requires enough safety of equipment which is received by various corrosion monitoring techniques. Growing exploration & production activities drives the market for corrosion monitoring.

Regional Overview

The market for corrosion monitoring is segmented into regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle-East and Africa (MEA). The Asia-Pacific region was largest market for corrosion monitoring, in terms of value and volume. The region is also analyzed to witness highest growth during the forecast period owing to the growth in end-use industries such as oil & gas, chemicals, power generation and manufacturing. The demand for corrosion monitoring in the regions like North America is likely to increase in future years owing to the exploration of shale gas in the region. In LAMEA, the market for corrosion monitoring will grow due to rise in manufacturing and oil & gas sector in countries such as Brazil, UAE, Saudi Arabia and parts of Africa.
