Hydrophobic coatings help in repelling water deposition on the surface, making products anti-absorbent. The growing number of construction projects around the world as a result of rapid migration and urbanization, especially in Asia’s emerging economies, will support market growth.
 

Governments from developing nations are implementing initiatives to improve the economic state of the country, which is positively impacting the overall market statistics. For Instance, in December 2021, Indian researchers from the International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy & New Materials (ARCI) developed super-hydrophobic coatings that can enhance the corrosion resistance of stainless steel. The team examined the innovation and aims to use it in industrial applications in marine, machinery, electronic parts, piping, power, and nuclear sectors.
 

The expanding automotive industry as a result of increasing disposable income and changing lifestyle choices will also boost the hydrophobic coatings market forecasts. The firms in the field are majorly engaging in consistent research and development activities and entering into strategic mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships to strengthen their market position. Private and public investment for product penetration in varied applications will also elevate the strategic landscape of the industry.
 

Risk of impairment may restrain industry progression

High cost and risk of damage in the application process can emerge as key factors restraining market growth. Applying underbody coatings on mechanical components requires utmost caution or the coatings can seep into mechanical components while they are in motion, such as drive shafts, U-joints, or CV joints in a car’s propeller shaft, causing early failure. Nonetheless, the development of effective and easy application coatings will help tackle this issue in the coming years.
