The global smart coatings market is expected to register a significant growth rate during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the rise in automotive production in regions, like Asia-Pacific and Europe, coupled with the superior properties associated with smart coatings. Smart or intelligent coatings are being preferred widely, with the emergence of new technologies that enhance their functionalities. Some such technologies include nanotechnology, conductive materials, micro-encapsulation, self-healing, and self-assembling systems, as they expand the capabilities of coatings well beyond aesthetics and protection.

Rise in Automotive Production in Asia-Pacific Boosting the Market

The countries, like China, India, the Philippines, and Vietnam, are turning out to be the potential markets for demand and supply of automobiles, where many automotive manufacturers are placing their manufacturing and assembly plants. This can be attributed to the availability of labor at low costs, raw material prices, and rising urban population in Asia-Pacific. Major car manufacturers, such as Chevrolet, Daimler, Jeep, Audi, Volvo, and Kia, have either set up their automotive manufacturing facilities or are planning to start new facilities in Asia-Pacific in the near future. This factor supports the usage of smart coatings in the automotive industry to a major extent. With the increasing automotive production, the high demand for anti-corrosion coatings from the automotive industry, especially for the protection of body parts, such as door closures, lock parts, exhausts, suspensions, engine components, and clamps & hose connections, against abrasion, is majorly driving the smart coatings market.

The Healthcare Sector to Grow Rapidly

Smart coatings are being customized to form a toxic or non-toxic barrier for detrimental microorganisms. This factor has increased the adoption rate of smart coatings as antimicrobial agents in medical applications. Moreover, the triggering mechanism in smart coatings to turn on a specific functionality can be exploited, in order to develop efficient drug-delivery systems. The United States has the largest share in the global healthcare market, moreover, the rapid growth of the US medical industry is expected to augment the demand for smart coatings.

China the Largest Consumer of Smart Coatings

In terms of revenue, China was estimated to be the largest market for smart coatings in Asia-Pacific in 2017. Factors, like growth in the automotive industry in 2017, with a 3.2% rise in the automotive production over 2016, along with the growing electronic operations in the country, has contributed to the growth of the smart coatings market in this country.
