Hydrophobic Coatings Market by Substrate Type (Metals, Glass, Concrete, Polymers, Ceramics), End-Use Industry (Automotive, Aerospace, Building & Construction, Marine, Textiles, Electronics, Medical), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022
“The hydrophobic coatings market is projected to register a CAGR of 5.5% between 2017 and 2022.”
The market size of hydrophobic coatings is estimated to be 10,022.5 tons in 2017 and is projected to reach 13,099.0 tons by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.5% between 2017 and 2022. Increased demand for hydrophobic coatings from the automotive, aerospace, building & construction, marine, textiles, electronics and medical end-use industries are expected to drive the hydrophobic coatings market, globally. Hydrophobic coatings are water repellent coatings, and some of the advantages of applying hydrophobic coatings include decreased dirt retention, self-clean ability, and corrosion resistance. Environmental regulations could be a major restraint for the hydrophobic coatings industry.
“Automotive is expected to be the largest end-use industry during the forecast period.”
Automtive is expected to be the largest end-use industry of hydrophobic coatings during the forecast period. Hydrophobic coatings are used on windshields, headlamps, mirrors, and windows for improved visibility by 30-40% thereby reducing the number of accidents. This is expected to increase the usage of hydrophobic coatings in the automotive industry. In addition, increasing vehicle sales are expected to drive the demand for these coatings in the automotive industry.
“The concrete substrate type is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”
The concrete substrate segment of the hydrophobic coatings market is projected to register the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022. The growth of the concrete segment is driven by their use in building and constructions. Hydrophobic coatings are used on concrete to avoid its expansion, cracking, scaling, and crumbling. These hydrophobic coatings protect the concrete surface by increasing the angle of contact between the water droplet and concrete surface.
“The APAC hydrophobic coatings market is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”
The growth of the APAC hydrophobic coatings market can be attributed to the rapidly increasing demand from the automotive, aerospace, building & construction, marine, textiles, electronics, and medicals industries. This high growth is due to the increasing demand for vehicles, increasing innovations in the aerospace industry, and increasing start-ups in the medical devices manufacturing sector of APAC.
