Despite extensive work on improving atmospheric corrosion resistance in metals, i.e., steel and alloy, the corrosion rate on the metallic surface is higher at some localized geographical area of the globe. Despite the visible successes in recent coating technology in curbing environmental conditions, it is proposed that the recent increase of atmospheric bioaerosols has a significant role in the dissolution of corrosion-resistant coating over a metallic surface. In this review, the science of atmospheric corrosion on metallic materials was reviewed in the light of the chemical and physical composition of atmospheric bioaerosols and aerosols. It was observed that aside from general conditions (i.e., alloying element level, surface roughness, surface treatment, and microclimate), the bioaerosols content is essential for future research in corrosion. It is recommended that further experimental research be carried out to corroborate the science of atmospheric bioaerosols to different forms of corrosion.
