In the UK and Germany, under British standard 476 and ETA & DIN 4102 standard, several regulations were imposed related to fire safety and standard in building construction steelwork.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic had severely impacted EU-5 countries, the US, Russia, Poland, and Nordic countries. As a preventive measure, construction activities have been suspended. Several construction projects in Europe and North America have been suspended, which has resulted in a decline in demand for the cellulosic fire protection intumescent coatings.

Also, the disruption in the supply chain has been a major issue faced by the paints and coatings industry, which is expected to lead to a rise in the price of raw materials and other products.

"The commercial segment is estimated to maintain ascendancy throughout forecast period"

The commercial building construction across the globe is estimated to account for the largest share of the global cellulosic fire protection intumescent coatings market in 2021, followed by the residential segment in terms of value. Increasing construction activities, along with increasing investment in commercial sector development in the emerging economies in APAC and MEA, are expected to drive the market demand during the forecast period.

"Water-borne coatings segment is estimated to have majority share in market."

Based on type, the water-borne coatings segment is estimated to hold the majority share of the overall cellulosic fire protection intumescent coatings market. The major factor driving this segment is the increasing demand for green products. Water-borne coatings are easier to clean up, reduce the risk of fire, and result in less exposure to VOCs.

"North America is projected to account for the largest share of the markets during the forecast period"

North America is projected to lead the global cellulosic fire protection intumescent coatings market from 2021 to 2026.
