Nano Coatings can improve the performance of the applied surfaces with physical properties such as resistance to corrosion, microbial, and heat, providing them protection against UV rays, scratch, and abrasion. Further nanocoatings also offer to the applied surfaces with a range of properties such as hydrophobicity, oleophobicity, anti-reflection property, self-cleaning property, anti-icing/ de-icing property, antifouling property, and anti-fingerprint property among other.

Furthermore, nanocoatings are compatible with a wide range of substrates such as metals & alloys, plastic, wood, and concrete. As a result, these coatings are rapidly replacing conventional surface coatings in a range of applications across various end-use industries. Consequently, the nano coatings market is growing pervasively on the global platform.

Acknowledging the huge traction the market is garnering currently, Market Research Future (MRFR) in its recently published study report asserts that the global nano coatings market is projected to witness significant growth by 2030 registering a healthy CAGR over the forecast period (2021-2030).

The nano coatings market is largely driven by the electronics and automotive industry due to the anti-fingerprint quality that has wide uptake in the evolving touch-based technology in the electronics industry (mobiles, laptops, SCADA systems, refrigerators, and displays), and in the automotive industry (window & windshield glass, and touch panels).

The burgeoning electronics and automotive industries are expected to drive the market during the forecast period as well.

Growing applications of nanocoatings in optics industry for the making of spectacles, sunglasses, mirrors, contact lenses, and camera lenses is another key driving force behind the market growth which will continue to support the market throughout the review period. 

Furthermore, easy to clean and anti-fouling coatings are driving a huge demand from the marine industry for boats and ship hulls.   Additionally, anti-microbial coatings are largely preferred and find a wide range of applications in the healthcare and food packaging industry which in turn, fosters the market growth of nanocoatings.

On the other hand, factors such as the high cost of nanocoatings compared to conventional surface coatings are acting as a headwind to the market growth. Nevertheless, the huge demand for nanocoatings which is cumulatively driven by the end-user industries is expected to support the market growth during the forecast period.
