The report is a comprehensive presentation of trends, forecasts, and dollar values of global hydrophobic coatings market. According to the report, the global hydrophobic coatings market is projected to grow over CAGR of 4% over the forecast period of 2022-2028.


Market Insight

The value of the hydrophobic coatings market in 2022 was over USD 2.1 billion and expected to reach more than USD 2.7 in 2028 and is expected to be growing with a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period. The word ‘Hydrophobic’ implies, tending to repel or fail to mix with the water. In other words, it is a coating that has hydrophobic properties that block water. The word hydrophobic is often confused with the word superhydrophobic coating. The main difference between the hydrophobic and superhydrophobic coating is the difference in contact angle and the character of the surface. A hydrophobic coating is highly durable than a superhydrophobic coating. Some of the advantages of hydrophobic coating include decreased dirt retention, self-clean ability, improved moisture, and corrosion resistance, as well the extended life expectancy of the coating and the substrates. Polysiloxanes hydrophobic coatings products are industrial maintenance and protective coatings that have applications characterized by chemicals, abrasion, high temperature, and extreme UV. Its admirable aesthetic weathering characteristics in terms of gloss retention along with chalk resistance properties are anticipated to fuel hydrophobic coatings market value. These products can be applied to plastic, paint, metal, and powder coat forming a permanent protective barrier in a vehicle. These coatings react with substrate surfaces to form an abrasion-resistant covering with very high bonding properties along with generating coatings with high flexibility and durability.


COVID-19 was an incomparable global public health emergency that has affected almost every industry and is projected to impact these various industry growths during the forecast period. During the Covid-19, pandemic people were compelled to stay in their homes. The governments of many countries in the world turned their focus to healthcare from other industries. This significantly disrupted their supply chain operations and manufacturing as lockdowns were imposed by the respective governments. Manufacturing facilities were all shut down due to the pandemic in almost every country across the globe. Logistical restrictions, manpower shortage, material unavailability, and other restrictions had reduced the growth of the industry. The pandemic has affected the normal production of companies.


The remarkable properties possessed by the hydrophobic coatings and their ability to be used on different surfaces and different materials including glass, ceramics, metals, and several others, are the key factor driving the growth of the hydrophobic coatings market. Hydrophobic coating is widely used in the building and construction industry, the use of hydrophobic coating improves the thermal performance and increases the insulation properties of buildings. Also, it vastly reduces the chances of mold appearing on the internal walls of the home, the wall insulation helps to keep the home hot in the winter and cool in summer. Thus with the continual growth in the building and construction, the demand for hydrophobic coating is increasing. In addition, the hydrophobic coating is used for optical applications, these coatings are used for sunglasses, consumer optics, high-tech optical components, lasers and precision optics, goggles, sapphire optics, and several other applications. Moreover, in display applications, these coatings are used for video optical components, cellphones, smartphones, pen applications, LCD, plasma, projection displays, and OEM treatments. With increasing modernization and improved standard of living, the use of hydrophobic coatings will increase in home applications, which in turn, would drive the demand for the hydrophobic coatings market. However, the use of superhydrophobic coating and other similar substitutes can hamper the growth of the hydrophobic coatings market. With an increasing number of applications of hydrophobic coating in electronics applications, mainly for inkjet repellency, ant wetting applications, microfluidic channels, stainless steel components, hard disc drives, and much more, the demand for hydrophobic coating will increase over the upcoming years.


The report provides a regional outlook covering geographies such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. The Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the hydrophobic coatings market during the forecast years. Asia-Pacific dominates the hydrophobic coatings market due to the increased adoption of coatings in various emerging countries in this region and the presence of a huge population to drive the demand for various products where hydrophobic coatings are applied. The rapid rise in disposable income has expanded demand for commercial and passenger vehicles leading to growing prospects for these coatings. The introduction of new government initiatives and FDI has led to an upsurge in automotive and OEM production due to mounting investments from international companies and firms. The presence of developing countries in this region and their investment in the pharmaceutical and medical infrastructure is expected to provide opportunities for the development of the hydrophobic coatings market during the forecast period.
