Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Anti-Reflective Coatings Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global anti-reflective coatings market: Asahi Glass, Essilor, PPG Industries, Royal DSM, and ZEISS.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: DuPont, Honeywell International, HOYA, Janos Technology, and Rodenstock.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is increasing applications of anti-reflective coatings in eyewear. The demand for anti-reflective coatings is expected to rise due to the growing requirement for the high light-transmitting lenses and eyeglasses. The anti-reflective coatings eliminate glare that leads to more light to passage through the optical materials. In most of the cases, anti-reflective coatings are applied to both the front and back of the lenses in order to minimize glare and halos.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is growing demand for anti-reflective coatings in solar industry. The demand is growing for anti-reflective coatings in solar applications mainly due to increasing focus on the generation of renewable energy. Anti-reflective coatings improve the efficiency of solar panels and decrease the non-renewable energy dependence. Various solar thermal control coatings are also used in solar cells, detectors, and solar panels.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is fluctuations in raw material prices. The fluctuating cost of raw materials used for the manufacture of coatings is a major challenge for the global anti-reflective coatings market. The prices of raw materials such as titanium dioxide, indium tin oxide (ITO), antimony oxide, magnesium chloride and aluminum oxide have been fluctuating. Titanium dioxide is considered the most important pigment used in anti-reflective coatings. It has exceptional light scattering property. Pigments account for one-third of the total coating cost.
