Superhydrophobic Coatings Market: Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis and Forecast, 2015 – 2021

Report Code: ZMR-188 | Report Format : | Status : Upcoming |

Abstract

The superhydrophobic coating is a nanoscopic surface layer which repels water. Water droplets hitting on such kind of coating can fully rebound and form a shape of the column or a pancake. Superhydrophobic coatings are used in ultra-dry surface applications. These coatings cause an almost invisible thin layer of air to form on top of a surface. Moreover, superhydrophobic coatings are also found in nature. For example, they appear on plant leaves such as the Lotus leaf, and on some insect wings. The coating can be sprayed onto objects to make them waterproof. The spray is an anticorrosive and anti-icing. It has several properties such as cleaning capabilities and can be used to protect circuits and grids. The performance of superhydrophobic coatings depends on their delicate micro or nanostructure which is responsible for enhanced repellence. This structure is easily damaged by abrasion or cleaning; hence, these coatings are usually used on things such as electronic components, which are not prone to wear.

Based on the type of coating, the global superhydrophobic coatings market is segmented as polysiloxanes, fluoroalkylsilanes, fluoropolymer, and others. On the basis of technology used to coat the substrates, the global is segmented as chemical vapor deposition (CVD), the sol-gel process, electrospinning, phase separation, and etching. In addition, based on the properties exhibited, the global superhydrophobic coatings market can be further segmented as self-cleaning, anti-fouling, de-icing, anti-microbial, anti-corrosion, and others. Further, based on the raw materials used, the market is segmented as carbon nanotubes, silica nanoparticles, and graphene.

The market is witnessing high demand for hydrophobic coating owing to increasing demand for their application in the construction, automotive, and aerospace industries. In addition, factors such as rising demand for the different properties of the hydrophobic coating and the compatibility of coatings with various substrates are impacting the growth of the superhydrophobic coatings market in a positive way. Moreover, technological advancements in the superhydrophobic coatings industry have resulted in increased surface angle and enhanced durability of hydrophobic coatings. This, in turn, is anticipated to drive the growth of the global market.

North America proves to be the leading player in the superhydrophobic coatings market mainly due to the factors such as the presence of major companies having high technological investments in the industry, economic recovery, and increasing demand for advanced consumer electronics. On the other hand, Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness the highest growth owing to the availability of high-quality inexpensive raw material and growing electronics industry. In addition, Central & South America also provide ample opportunities to niche market players.

Major players dominating the global superhydrophobic market are Rust-Oleum, P2i International Ltd., Lotus Leaf Inc., UltraTech International Inc., NEI Corporation, Hydrobead, NTT Advanced Technology, and Pearl Nano. Other key players influencing the global market are Aculon, United Protec, Advanced NanoTech Lab, DryWired, Surfectis Technologies, and Hirec Paints.
