COVID-19 Impact

The global COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the majority of the market sectors worldwide. The smart coatings market is no different than others. Several governments worldwide imposed partial or complete lockdowns to stop the spread of the disease. Due to the social distancing norms and travel restrictions set across the globe, manufacturing industries such as building & construction, automobiles, etc., faced unexpected challenges. The disruptions of supply chain networks and lack of labor across the globe led the market to face severe economic losses and a fall in demand. Yet, the growing demand for smart coatings to protect several components from damage is the primary aspect driving the market's growth across the globe. Manufacturers worldwide are recovering from losses initiated due to the pandemic. With the global economy getting back on track after the pandemic period, the market has witnessed a significant surge in demand for superior properties of smart coatings such as corrosion resistance, self-healing, and self-cleaning.

End-use sectors across the globe have also demonstrated interest in products that need low maintenance, which has further augmented the growth of the smart coatings market. Other benefits of using smart coating are that it can signify damage to an aero-engine when applied to the aircraft. The growing number of research & development activities by significant leaders in advancing smart coatings also increases the market's growth. In addition, the increasing awareness of using eco-friendly and anti-corrosion coatings across the globe creates value-grab opportunities for market players. One of the significant aspects causing the market's growth is the growing focus on harnessing new energy technology that uses solar winds technique.

Segment Analysis

Among all the function types, the anti-corrosion segment is projected to dominate the global smart coatings market over the forecasted era. Lately, AnCatt has developed the latest anti-corrosion coatings that are heavy metal-free and environment-friendly. At present, the demand for anti-corrosion products is high across Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America. The growing range of applications across the end use sectors such as automotive, military, and electronics is causing a surge in demand for the segment.

Among all the end-use sectors, the military segment secured the top position in the global smart coatings market in 2020. The segment is likely to maintain dominance over the coming years as well. On the other hand, the automotive and building & construction segments are also projected to grow substantially over the assessment era.
