Whereas, high corrosion resistance offered by anti-corrosion coatings are likely to offer antic-corrosive coatings a gain growth in aerospace and automotive industry over the projected period.

Application Insights

The automotive industry was the largest application segment for the product, accounting for over 20% of the total demand in 2015. Rising demand for anti-corrosion, anti-icing/wetting and self-cleaning hydrophobic coatings for cars is expected to drive the market demand over the forecast period. The automotive industry is growing significantly in regions including Asia Pacific, North America, and the Middle East & Africa which is likely to open new avenues for the industry growth over the forecast period.

The aerospace industry is expected to gain share owing to increasing utilization of anti-corrosive coatings and anti-icing/wetting coatings. The growth of passenger travel demand owing to increasing consumer disposable income and changing lifestyle is expected to have a positive impact on the commercial aerospace production, which in turn is anticipated to have a positive impact on the industry growth over the forecast period.

The demand for the product is expected to grow significantly in the medical industry owing to its increasing utilization in the manufacturing of biocompatible stainless steel operating and surgical tools. In addition, the growing application of the coatings in optical industry in the manufacturing of spectacles and goggles is expected to have a positive impact on the industry growth over the next nine years.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market for hydrophobic coatings and is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 7% from 2016 to 2025. Growing production of vehicles in China and India is expected to drive the demand for the compounds over the next nine years. Furthermore, growing medical industry in the region and high production volume of medicals tools and equipment is expected to have a positive impact on the demand coatings in the region.

U.S. hydrophobic coating market volume, by application, 2014 - 2025 (Tons)

U.S. hydrophobic coating market

North America and Europe accounted for over 50% of the total market share owing to the high production volumes of end-user segments including automotive, airplanes, and medical devices. These regions are highly adaptive to new technologies. As a result, the penetration of the product in the application sectors is expected to be high, impacting the market on a positive note. The Middle East & Africa is expected to grow significant rate on account of the growing automotive sector in the region. Central & South America is expected to witness sluggish growth owing to the economic slowdown in the region owing to the political instability in Brazil and other major countries.

Competitive Market Share Insights

The industry is fragmented in nature with the presence of manufacturers spread across the globe. The major players in the market include BASF SE, AkzoNobel N.V., Aculon Inc., Accucoat, Inc., 3M, Aurolab, Excel Coatings.

Aculon Inc. has announced new multi-surface repellency treatment by utilizing hydrophobic coatings. The modifications in the chemical composition are expected to enhance the characteristics of the coatings. In addition, the coatings possess lower thickness than other hydrophobic coatings which is expected to aid in the application without the utilization of complex equipment.
