The Global Smart Coatings market is forecasted to reach USD 10.32 Billion by 2026, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Smart coatings are preferred among others owing to the development of new technologies that enhance their functionalities. Such technologies are conductive materials, nanotechnology, self-healing and self-assembling system, and micro-encapsulation, as they give coatings the capabilities beyond protection and aesthetics.

Introduction of advanced technologies in smart coatings such as self-healing and self-cleaning are being utilized by the end users to provide coating options to their customers. Application of nanotechnology-based coatings is expected to reduce the cost of the coating solution, improve damage or scratch resistance, gives aid to anti-fogging, flame retardance and protect coloring, hence boosting the growth of smart coating market. Smart coating is gaining popularity as it is being used for both protective and decorative purposes. It is used to indicate damage on, engine or oil gas platform, or in aircraft to reduce weight. It could also be used as a barrier for packaging film and also as transparent and moisture ingress. Due to its various applications, it is also used in sectors like hospitals, aerospace, and military among others. Owing to the advanced application of smart coatings, consumers are willing to pay a premium price for the coatings.

Automotive manufacturers such as Chevrolet, Audi, and Volvo among many other companies, who are establishing new industries in the APAC region owing to low labor cost, raw material prices, and rising urban population. This will boost the smart coatings market in the APAC region. Smart coatings also form a barrier for toxic and non-toxic detrimental microorganisms. This has increased the adoption rate of smart coatings as antimicrobial agents. The U.S. has a large market share of the healthcare market and growth in the medical industry will propel the growth of the smart coatings market.
