Industry Analysis & Industry Trends
The Corrosion Protection Engineering industry is busy managing the corrosion of the aging US infrastructure and protecting new projects from its harmful effects. Although the recession caused demand from key construction, energy and transportation markets to slow as they reduced investments and scaled back production, a renewed public federal government focus on upgrading America's aging infrastructure and recovering public and private levels of investment into downstream energy, construction and transportation industries will underpin growth. Industry firms will benefit from increasing demand by downstream industries to implement new materials and develop plans to economically reduce corrosion expenses and extend the life of costly new structures and equipment.... purchase to read more
Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter
Corrosion protection engineering service firms offer a wide variety of evaluations and solutions to ensure protection of infrastructure, including pipelines, bridges, buildings and marine structures. These services range from analysis of the environment surrounding the infrastructure, material selection to minimize corrosion, coating services and cathodic protection solutions.
The majority of revenue for firms in this industry is derived from cathodic protection solutions, which is the technique of reinforcing metal surfaces to prevent corrosion by making it the cathode of an electrochemical cell. A simple cathodic protection technique is connecting a protective, more easily corroded piece of metal to the surface... purchase to read more
