According to a new report published by Transparency Market Research, the copper pyrithione equipment market will record significant growth owing to the rising demand for anti-fouling coatings across the globe. The report titled, “Solar Water Heaters Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2018 – 2026, ” anticipates that the global market will grow remarkably during the forecast period.
Pyrithione is an organic chemical that is used in various forms as an industrial biocide. Pyrithione is also known as 2-pyridinethiol-1-oxide, 1-Hydroxy-2-pyridinethione, 2-mercaptopyridine-N-oxide, pyridinethione-N-oxide, pyridine-2-thione-N-oxide, 2-pyridinethione, pyridinethione, or PT. It is known for its fungicidal and bactericidal properties. It has been predominantly employed as an antifouling agent in marine ships for several decades.
Several metal compounds of pyrithione are used as a biocide, of which two are most commonly used: zinc pyrithione and copper pyrithione. Copper pyrithione is relatively more toxic and hence, it is largely used in industrial applications. One of the key uses of copper pyrithione is its application as a biocide in marine paints to prevent accumulation of marine flora and fauna on ship hulls. Copper pyrithione is also employed in anti-fouling paints. Mostly, it is used as a co-biocide (or booster biocide) along with another biocide such as zinc pyrithione.
Anti-fouling coatings is a leading product type of marine coatings across the world. These coatings protect marine vessels and ships from fouling organisms and slime. Copper pyrithione is the active ingredient of these coatings. Thus, the rising demand for anti-fouling coatings is anticipated to propel the demand for copper pyrithione across the globe in the near future. Dry-docking activities are also on the rise, which is likely to boost the demand for anti-fouling coatings and thereby, for copper pyrithione.
Major companies manufacturing anti-fouling coating systems are Akzo Nobel N. V. , PPG Industries Inc. , Jotun A/S, Hempel A/S, and Sherwin-Williams Company. All of these use copper pyrithione as a co-biocide in their products.
