The low friction coatings market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% during forecast period

The low friction coatings market is projected to reach USD 810.4 million by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2016 to 2021. Growing automobile industry, stringent environmental regulations, and growing demand for coating suitable for medical devices are the key drivers for the low friction coatings market.

PTFE is one of the key raw material for the manufacturing of low friction coatings. However, regulations pertaining to perfluorooctanoic acid and perfluorooctane sulfonate used in emulsion polymerization of PTFE can restrain the growth of the PTFE-based low friction coatings segment.

Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) was the largest segment of the low friction coatings market

Molybdenum disulfide is used as a dry lubricant coating and is being increasingly used in high temperature and high pressure applications. MoS2 possesses properties such as low coefficient of friction, wear resistance, and high temperature stability, among others.

Automobile & transportation was the fastest-growing end-use industry for low friction coatings

Rising concerns about environmental issues and drawbacks of conventional lubricants such as low heat stability and disposability have led to companies operational in the automotive industry adopting low friction coatings to increase fuel efficiency and reduce the impact on the environment. The increasing use of low friction coatings to reduce noise, vibrations, and emissions in automobiles has fueled the demand for these coatings across the globe.

Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing market for low friction coatings

Asia-Pacific is one of the fastest-growing markets for several manufacturing industries, which has fueled the demand for low friction coatings in the region. Emerging economies such as China and India are attracting large investments from various manufacturers across the globe.

The low friction coatings market is projected to reach USD 810.4 Million by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2016 to 2021. Growing end-use industries and changing needs of consumers have fueled the demand for new and advanced low friction coatings. The development of various new and efficient low friction coatings has led to the use of the coatings in various new applications.

Based on type, the low friction coating market has been segmented into molybdenum disulfide, PTFE, and others. Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is the most widely used type of low friction coatings. The molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) low friction coatings segment is expected to witness rapid growth during the forecast period, due to their ability to perform under very high temperature and high pressure environments. PTFE coatings are generally used in applications where high wear resistance is required and the operating temperature is low.

The low friction coatings market has also been segmented based on end-use industries, such as aerospace, automobile & transportation, general engineering, energy, food & healthcare, among others. The growth of end-use industries in emerging economies is expected to boost the growth of low friction coating market.

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market for low friction coatings, due to rapid growth in end-use industries, such as automobile & transportation, food & healthcare, and general engineering. The growth of the manufacturing industry in Asia-Pacific has led to increased demand for low friction coatings in Asia-Pacific.

Growing automobile industry has led to increasing demand for low friction coatings, globally. Asia-Pacific is one of the fastest-growing markets for several manufacturing industries, which has fueled the demand for low friction coatings in the region. India is expected to be the fastest-growing market for low friction coatings during the forecast period. Key manufacturers in the market include Dow Corning Corporation (U.S.), The Chemours Company (U.S.), Whitford Corporation (U.S.), BECHEM (Germany), Endura Coatings (U.S.), and Poeton Industries (U.K.).

Companies are investing in expansions and developing advanced products to cater to the increasing demand and provide application-specific products. In August 2016, Dow Corning Corporation introduced a new product with a glossy look to meet the aesthetic and functional need of the automobile industry. In July 2016, Chemours established a new Teflon finishes plant in China.
