This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Glass Coatings Market is accounted for $1.36 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $6.14 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 24.0% during the forecast period. Glass surfaces can have a thin layer of material put to them to enhance attributes including durability, scratch resistance, and energy efficiency. Solar panels, construction, electronics, and the automobile industry are just a few of the industries that employ glass coatings. Typically, inorganic substances like metal oxides, nitrides, and carbides are used to coat glass. The optical, thermal, and chemical qualities of these substances are chosen because they can enhance the performance of glass surfaces.

According to the current standards for selection of coating specifications which includes, reduced VOC and elimination of toxic components to comply with stringent environmental regulations, fewer coats to reduce application costs.

Market Dynamics:


Expanding use of coatings based on nanotechnology

The market for glass coatings has been completely transformed by nanotechnology, which has made it possible to create high-performance coatings with cutting-edge features. Coatings made with nanotechnology have excellent qualities including increased scratch resistance, increased durability, and higher optical clarity. Because they are created at the nanoscale, these coatings can form a thin, transparent layer on the glass surface without affecting the transparency of the glass itself. The adoption of coatings based on nanotechnology has been led by the automobile sector. These coatings are being used by automakers to improve the look and functionality of windscreens and windows. Nan coatings are furthermore employed in the electronics sector to increase the robustness and conductivity of glass substrates used in smartphone, tablets, and other electronic devices.


High production costs and difficulty in application

Glass coating manufacture may be pricey, particularly for complex coatings that need specialised machinery and raw ingredients. Due to their lack of resources and economies of scale, smaller enterprises may find it challenging to compete with bigger ones. Glass coating materials must be applied with the correct equipment and by skilled hands. Otherwise, given how rapidly this substance hardens, it can result in an uneven application. In order to prevent contamination from dust and debris, the process must also be carried out in a space that is free of dust. These impurities may produce microscopic bumps that can harm the coating and the car's paint.


Using coatings on glass that enhance thermal performance

Industries are adopting glass coatings that enhance the thermal efficiency of windows and other glass surfaces in response to growing concerns about environmental sustainability and energy conservation. By minimising heat transmission and obviating the need for excessive heating or cooling, these coatings aid in lowering energy usage. Energy-efficient glass coatings have been significantly influenced by the building industry in particular. High-performance glass coatings are more in demand now than ever before because to green construction programmes and strict energy efficiency rules. Additionally, the automobile sector is embracing energy-efficient coatings to improve vehicle fuel economy by reducing the strain on air conditioning systems. To fulfil the demand for energy-efficient solutions, producers are creating novel coatings with low emissivity and solar-reflective qualities.


Availability of raw materials with intense competition

Specialised raw ingredients, including as titanium dioxide, silicon dioxide, and fluorine compounds, are needed to create sophisticated glass coatings; however, these elements are not commonly accessible and can raise production costs. The supply chain may be disrupted as a result, which might slow market expansion. There is fierce rivalry in the glass coating business, where several companies provide a variety of glass coatings and films. Smaller enterprises may find it challenging to compete with larger ones and acquire market share as a result.

Covid-19 Impact

Nearly every facet of life has been impacted by COVID-19, which has spread around the globe. Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the UK, and Norway are a few of the significant economies that have suffered greatly as a result of the COVID-19 problem. The supply chain for the market was further harmed by the lockdown and other limitations put in place by governments to stop the spread of illnesses since there was a lack of both raw materials and labour. Contracts with suppliers were cancelled in order to save money because of a shortage of raw materials and supply chain disruptions. The demand from the building and construction sectors declined as a result of factors including the suspension of construction activities, supply chain restrictions, and a temporary halt in production.

The nano-coatings segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The nano-coatings segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to its excellent qualities, including self-cleaning, scratch-resistant, and water-repellent features, nano-coatings are predicted to dominate the glass coating industry. Due to their capacity to increase the toughness and resilience of glass surfaces, these coatings are frequently employed in automotive and construction applications. The rapidly rising demand for energy-efficient buildings and sophisticated glass goods across a range of end-use sectors, the nano-coating market is predicted to increase dramatically, the low-emissivity coatings market is also anticipated to expand considerably.

The automotive segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The automotive segment is anticipated to witness the highest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to the increasing usage of high-tech vehicle glass goods. Glass coatings may make car glass more robust, scratch-resistant, and optically clear, enhancing vehicle performance and safety. Moreover, because to the rising demand for cutting-edge automotive technology and the implementation of strict safety requirements, the automotive segment acquires large market share.

Region with largest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the rising demand for these coatings in the construction and automotive industries. In developing nations of the Asia-Pacific region including Vietnam, India, and China, the building and construction industry is expanding quickly. Additionally, it is anticipated that growing FDI spending in a variety of end-use sectors, such as the automotive sector, in India, China, South Korea, and Thailand would offer profitable opportunities for glass coating producers in the near future.

Region with highest CAGR:

Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to increasing demand in the building and construction, automotive, aerospace, and industry sectors. In Europe, the automobile sector has expanded as a consequence of partnerships between several paint and coating companies. It is anticipated that this would increase demand for glass coatings across Europe. Additionally, it is anticipated that the market for glass coatings in Europe would grow as a result of rising demand from the building and construction, maritime, aerospace, and aviation sectors.
