Anti Fingerprint Coatings Market Trends

  • Rapidly increasing demand for anti-fingerprint coatings is driving the market growth

The increasing demands of manufacturing processes and advancements in engineering applications have caused the coatings business to advance rapidly. In essence, coatings are applied to products to protect, preserve, and beautify them. The coatings industry has gradually moved away from its traditional role of offering a high-quality finish and feel to one in which it is employed as a method of surface treatment, consequently increasing the product's value. The use of novel functional coatings has been made possible by technological developments in the manufacturing industry and intensive continuous research to enhance the current production alternatives. Coatings help achieve durability and additional, personalised qualities like corrosion resistance, resistance to wear and tear, and resistance to fouling, among others.

On an annual basis, the demand for coatings with anti-reflective and anti-fingerprint qualities has been rapidly rising. Due to their low cost and glare reduction abilities, anti-reflective coatings are widely useful in important end-user sectors. This coating offers resistance to light reflection, which is essential for the solar sector because it aids in absorbing more energy. Anti-reflective coating adoption has given end-user markets a ground-breaking technology that helps to improve the product's quality. On the other hand, anti-smudging capabilities are frequently provided by anti-fingerprint coating. The anti-fingerprint coating makes it possible to achieve lower maintenance costs and facilitates less dirt and moisture adhesion. These novel qualities have fueled the market expansion of anti-fingerprint coatings.

The end-user companies are using the anti-reflective and anti-fingerprint coatings as a tactic to differentiate their product in a highly competitive market. The use of these coatings also gives businesses a cost advantage and has an effect on the entire value chain of the production process. Due to the vast range of beneficial qualities possessed by these two coatings, a number of applications have been created, paving the path for their practical and commercial applicability. Anti-reflective coatings are currently most commonly used in the automobile, consumer products, photovoltaic, building & construction, and other industries. End-user industries include automotive, building and construction, consumer products, and stainless steel are just a few that specifically use anti-fingerprint coatings. Thus, driving the Anti Fingerprint Coatings market revenue.

Anti Fingerprint Coatings Market Segment Insights

Anti Fingerprint Coatings Type Insights

The Anti Fingerprint Coatings Market segmentation, based on type, includes hydrophobic coating and oleophobic coating. The oleophobic coating segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022. Oleophobic coating prevents fingerprints from smudging smartphones or other devices' displays while also repelling grease. This kind of coating makes glass more resistant to scratches since lower friction will cause harmful objects to slip off the surface rather than scratch it. The oleophobic coating does, however, wear off over time, which reduces the pace of adoption.

Anti-Fingerprint Coatings Technology Insights

The Anti Fingerprint Coatings Market segmentation, based on technology, includes vacuum deposition, sol gel, and others. The vacuum deposition segment accounted for largest market share in 2022. Anti-fingerprint coating is produced with the help of technology. The manufacture of these coatings has expanded as a result of various technological developments. One of the main areas of use for global anti-fingerprint coating is vacuum deposition. A thin layer of coating is applied to the surface of various items using the vacuum deposition technique, which is employed by a number of end-user industries, including the automotive, consumer goods, and building and construction.
