Application Insights
The automotive application segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% contributing to over 21% of the market revenue in 2016. The utilization of coating on polymer, metal, and glass substrates in the industry is high. The coatings are applied to the glass of the windshield, mirrors of the vehicles. In addition, the polymer substrate coating is applied to the vehicle body.

The optical application segment is expected to witness a sluggish growth on account of the low utilization of the product in the industry. The optical coatings include hydrophobic and oleophobic along with hydrophilic coating. The growing application of hydrophobic coatings is expected to hamper the demand for hydrophilic coatings in the industry.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market in terms of revenue, growing at a CAGR of over 6.2% from 2016 to 2025. The increasing production of medical devices in the region, coupled with rising investments in medical infrastructure expansion, is expected to propel demand. In addition, rising automotive production in the developing economies of the region is likely to complement demand.

Europe was the second largest market of the overall consumption, accounting over 25% of the overall demand in 2016. Europe market has been very dynamic post BREXIT. This is expected to have a negative impact on the coatings market as the UK is one of the major markets for the hydrophilic coatings. As a result, the manufacturers are reluctant to invest in Europe and are shifting their focus to the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.
