Conformal coating Market Size

Conformal Coating Market was valued at USD 945 million in 2022 and is anticipated to register a CAGR of over 6% during 2023 to 2032. As electronic devices continue to shrink in size and components become more densely packed, the need for effective protection against environmental factors like moisture, dust, and chemicals becomes critical. Conformal coatings provide this protection without adding bulk to the electronic assemblies.

The aerospace and defense sectors require highly reliable electronics in mission-critical applications. Conformal coatings are essential for safeguarding sensitive equipment from extreme conditions, including high altitudes and rapid temperature changes. The use of electronic components in medical devices continues to grow, and these devices must adhere to stringent safety and biocompatibility standards. Conformal coatings are applied to protect and ensure the reliability of electronics in medical equipment.

Applying conformal coatings can be a complex and labor-intensive process. Selecting the appropriate conformal coating material for a specific application is crucial. Choosing the wrong material can lead to compatibility issues, adhesion problems, or inadequate protection. Conformal coatings often contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or hazardous substances.

COVID-19 Impact

Many manufacturing facilities worldwide experienced production slowdowns or temporary shutdowns due to lockdowns and restrictions. This led to a reduction in the production of electronic devices and components that require conformal coatings. Reduced consumer spending and lower industrial activity during the pandemic led to decreased demand for consumer electronics and automotive components.

Conformal coating Market Trends

There is a significant shift towards environmentally friendly conformal coating materials. Manufacturers are developing coatings with reduced or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous substances to comply with stricter environmental regulations and meet sustainability goals.


UV-curable conformal coatings are gaining popularity due to their rapid curing capabilities. They offer high-performance protection and allow for faster processing and reduced energy consumption. The demand for optically clear conformal coatings is growing in industries like display and optical systems. These coatings provide protection without affecting optical clarity, making them suitable for touchscreen devices and lenses.
