The report is a comprehensive presentation of trends, forecast and dollar values of global hydrophobic coatings market. According to the report the global hydrophobic coatings market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% over the forecast period of 2018-2024.
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 like 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 the superhydrophobic coating. Some of the advantages of hydrophobic coating include decreased dirt retention, self-clean ability, improved moisture, and corrosion resistance, as well as the extended life expectancy of the coating and the substrates.
The remarkable properties possessed by the hydrophobic coatings and its ability to be used on different surfaces and different material including glass, ceramics, metals, and several others, are the key factor driving the growth of the hydrophobic coating market. The hydrophobic coating is widely used in building and construction industry, the use of hydrophobic coating improves the thermal performance and increases insulation properties of buildings. Also, it vastly reduce the chances of mold appearing on internal walls of the home, the wall insulation helps to keep 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 coating market. However, the use of superhydrophobic coating and other similar substitutes can hamper the growth of the hydrophobic coating market. With an increasing number of applications of hydrophobic coating in electronics application, 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 upcoming years.
Among the geographies, the Asia Pacific region accounted for the highest market share in 2017 followed by the North America region.
