We are about to come to a close of this year. Soon, we will be heralding in the new year and the seasons of festivities. This is also a time when our magazine will soon within a couple of issues complete its tenth year in existence. All these years, we have been trying our best to disseminate information about corrosion mitigation technologies, activities, news, events, etc., from all around the world with the support of you the readers, advertisers and well-wishers and with the sincere hope that you will continue to do so. With this in mind, we have planned an event to coincide with our 10th anniversary celebrations in April/May next year. The event, we hope, will enable our readers and advertisers and the entire corrosion mitigation fraternity to come together, meet each other and a relaxed atmosphere and exchange ideas and business deals, as well as see actual demonstrations and learn about the new technologies being introduced around the world. We look forward to your active participation in the event.
In this issue, the main story is about marine coatings as increasing demand for marine coatings from the shipbuilding industry in emerging economies such as China, India, and Brazil, is expected to fuel the growth of the marine coatings market across the globe. The feature tries to assess the concerns and new developments the industry faces. Besides, we have our regular fare of features, interviews, new product launches, etc., to update you with the happenings within the industry.
Once again, let me take this opportunity to wish you a great new year ahead!!!
