European Hydrophobic Coatings Market size is anticipated to cross USD 610 million by 2026, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.
Increasing adoption of advance coating technologies for automotive, aircraft, and naval vessels should accelerate the Europe market growth. Growing utilization of hydrophobic coatings for increasing wear resistance and corrosion resistance of optical products, pipelines, and industrial machineries is expected to drive the market demand.
Based on products, the fluoro alkylsilanes segment held the second largest share in the Europe hydrophobic coatings market in 2019. Fluoro alkylsilane based coatings are obtained by modification of silica and are widely utilized for hydrophobization of surfaces. Fluoro alkylsilane coatings are appliable in self-cleaning and hydrophobic applications owing to their low surface energy properties. Use of fluoro alkylsilane coatings in industrial applications may rise pertaining to growing utilization for anti-corrosive and anti-wetting coatings in process manufacturing industry.
Use of coatings for protecting industrial products, tools and machineries has increased due to rising focus on increasing product life by avoiding product exposure to environmental factors. This rise in the use of coatings should trigger the demand for fluoro alkylsilanes hydrophobic coatings in Europe.
Hydrophobic coatings are primarily applied on metal surfaces for protecting metal surfaces from being exposed to water, air, and solvents. Hydrophobic coatings are used on pipelines, automotive surfaces, machine surfaces, and medical instruments where surface contamination is a high priority. Utilization of hydrophobic coatings in Europe may be triggered by rising manufacturing and chemical industry growth. Rise in the production output of chemical and manufacturing may trigger the use of hydrophobic coatings on metal surfaces for avoiding corrosion and adding wettability properties to the surface.
