Smart Coatings Market Drivers and Restraints

  • The increasing technological advancement in smart coatings, superior properties of intelligent surfaces, and the growth in the automotive sector especially in Asia-Pacific and Europe are the primary factors boosting the growth of the market.
  • Smart technologies are increasingly being preferred worldwide owing to the emergence of new technologies that have enhanced their functionalities.
  • Some of these technologies include- micro-encapsulation, nano-technology, conductive materials, self-healing, and self-assembling systems.
  • A significant trend driving the development of smart coating technologies is the continuous demand for higher performance to extend product life and reduce maintenance, to enhance energy efficiency both for cost and environmental reasons.
  • The high cost of smart coatings can hinder the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Smart Coatings Market Industry Segmentation Analysis

  • The global smart coatings market report segments the market by layer, function, and end-user. The layer segment includes a single layer and a multi-layer.
  • By the function of smart coatings, the market consists of self-healing, self-cleaning, anti-microbial, anti-icing, anti-corrosion, and others.
  • Further, the report classifies the market by end-user, which includes construction, automotive, aerospace, marine, consumer electronics, military, healthcare, and others.
  • The automotive segment is the most dominant and is expected to hold a significant market share during the forecast period.
  • There is a high demand for anti-corrosion smart coatings in the automotive industry for the protection of vehicle body parts like door closures, lock parts, suspensions, engine components, and clamps & hose connections.
  • Also, the demand for self-stratifying coatings is on the rise in the automotive industry because it reduces the labor and material costs involved in the second coating by forming multilayer films from a single coating system. The increasing amount of electronic technology incorporated into vehicles is also an essential driver for the use of smart coatings in the automotive sector.
  • The performance of displays, sensors, and cameras, and thus the user experience can be augmented by smart coatings that have self-cleaning or self-healing properties.
  • The trend toward multi-passenger and ride-share vehicles is also driving the development of coatings with antimicrobial properties for vehicle interiors, while the continual push to improve fuel efficiency is encouraging the development of new anticorrosion coatings for mixed materials.
  • The healthcare segment is expected to witness a rapid rise in the smart coatings market in the coming years. Smart coatings are customized toxic or non-toxic barriers for harmful microorganisms.
  • This has increased the adoption rate of smart coatings as antimicrobial agents in medical applications. Also, there has been growing research on utilizing the properties of intelligent layers for innovative drug delivery agents that are meant to trigger drug release based on external stimuli.

Smart Coatings Market Geographical Share

  • The report segments the market by geographic region which includes North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Others. Asia-Pacific was the fastest-growing region in 2017 for smart coatings, and it is expected to dominate the market in the coming years.
  • The expected dominance of Asia-Pacific can be attributed to the high growth of end-user industries in the region because of growing urbanization and industrialization. The rise in automotive production in Asia-Pacific is primarily boosting the market.
  • The countries like China, India, Japan, and South Korea are the top producers of automobiles in the region. Major car manufacturers like Chevrolet, Audi, Kia, Volvo, and Daimler are setting up new production facilities in these countries because of low labor costs, raw materials prices, and a rising urban population. Thus, the increasing automotive production is boosting the demand for smart coatings in the region.
  • North America held the largest market share in 2017 and will witness substantial market growth during the forecast period.
  • The increasing thrust on infrastructure development activities and industries in the U.S. like automotive, military, healthcare, and consumer electronics will augment the demand in the region.
  • The military seems to be a lucrative market (and funding source) for smart coatings in the U.S.; the U.S. military is the leading supporter of research on intelligent coatings and also the most significant military end-user of bright coating technology.
  • The U.S. military jointly with other institutes has undertaken various projects for the development of new smart coatings.
  • Currently, the development of a smart coating with a self-signaling feature that can effectively camouflage military personnel and equipment, such as tanks, trucks, and helicopters has been proposed. Thus, the increasing military applications of smart coatings will boost the market in the country.
