Corrosion is increasingly becoming a major issue for owners of industrial equipment and plants. Corrosion, which is mostly caused by a chemical attack, can lead to significant industrial losses. Corrosion, in its various forms, is estimated to cost the global economy US$3 Trn per year. The presence of corrosive chemicals can result in deterioration of a structure or equipment and is also a potential risk to personnel. It may also lead to permanent structural failure, which can be deemed costly in terms of repair. The corrosion phenomenon majorly affects economies of industrial companies. However, with the advent of innovative technologies, it is possible to eliminate corrosion in prior stages through anti-corrosion nanocoatings. Anti-corrosion nanocoatings consist of homogeneous thin films made up of alkoxides with chemically attached nanoparticles. Corrosion and high temperature oxidation can be reduced by coating materials made up of thin layer of chemically resistant oxides. Such films are primarily suitable for metallic surfaces. They offer various advantages such as low temperature processing, high purity, and control of the composition.
Nanocoatings are materials manufactured by shrinking raw materials at the molecular level to form a denser product. Nanocoatings are preferred over traditional coatings due to their lower content of VOCs. Additionally, nanocoatings offer characteristics such as resistance to scratch, UV, and chemical; low maintenance; anti-corrosion; and color and gloss retention. Nanocoatings are classified as anti-fingerprint, anti-microbial, anti-fouling and easy-to-clean, self-cleaning (bionic and photocatalytic) and others (specialty coatings, etc.). Anti-microbial is a highly used nanocoating across various end-user industries. Anti-microbial nanocoatings are employed in end-user industries such as medical and health care, water treatment, food manufacturing, and packaging. Anti-fouling and easy-to-clean nanocoatings are also employed on a large scale in marine, food manufacturing, automotive, and electronics industries, etc. The anti-fingerprint nanocoatings segment is expected to expand substantially in the near future due to the increasing demand in electronics, automotive, and medical and health care industries. Other types of nanocoatings are used in building & construction, packaging, and textiles industries.
The global anti-corrosion nanocoatings market is expanding owing to the high demand in medical and automotive coatings industries. Growth in the coatings sector, rising demand, and urbanization in BRIC countries has been driving the global anti-corrosion nanocoatings market since the last few years. Anti-corrosion nanocoatings are used in medical equipment and implants. The medical and health care industry is likely to expand significantly in the next few years. Energy and electronics are high-growth end-users of anti-corrosion nanocoatings. This trend is estimated to continue in the next few years. Furthermore, increase in usage of anti-corrosion nanocoatings in automotive to retain color and gloss of the surface is likely to drive the anti-corrosion nanocoatings market in the near future. Demand for nanocoatings is high in the building & construction industry, as they inhibit microbial growth, mildew, and algae. Anti-corrosion nanocoatings are also used in food manufacturing, packaging, textiles, and water treatment industries, among others.
The global anti-corrosion nanocoatings market is expected to witness significant growth due to the ability of these nanocoatings to provide high degree of adhesion and excellent chemical and abrasion resistance to meet the regulatory requirement. North America and Europe are the major markets for anti-corrosion nanocoatings, driven by the implementation of stringent emission standards to comply with the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Growth in the medical and health care industry in North America is estimated to drive the anti-corrosion nanocoatings market in the near future. Currently, the demand for medical equipment and implant coatings is high in North America. It is projected to rise owing to the increase in development in technology. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be a rapidly growing market for anti-corrosion nanocoatings in the next few years. Demand for anti-corrosion nanocoatings is likely to increase in Asia Pacific due to growth in automotive and electronics industries.
Key players operating in the anti-corrosion nanocoatings market include Buhler PARTEC GmbH, Nanogate AG, and P2i Ltd.
This upcoming business intelligence report is intended to be a one-stop market research solution to guide organizations in taking timely and effective decisions for their business growth. The ongoing study is the culmination of our deep expertise on data science methods, combined with an unparalleled understanding of the external environment and analysis of the industries. Each of the reports by TMR aims at offering a detailed scrutiny of the value chain of our current and prospective customers, takes them from identifying value propositions, and subsequently assist their business executives to implement right strategies to create customer value. We believe that creating and sustaining the customer value is the key pivot on which business executives can create profits for their organizations and increase the market shares, continuously and with sustainability.
Each of our touchpoints through which we engage with the organization/enterprise during the primary research enables us to understand the internal environment it operates in and the ways in which the external environment influences its growth.
Always Evolving with Competition
Excellence is built into the DNA of TMR, and all our teams work collaboratively and committedly toward achieving that in whatever they do. From the very first interaction our teams of research analysts have with any interested market participant to the final preparation processes in each of our reports reflects a rigorous understanding of the dynamic industry environment that businesses operate in.
We relentlessly work to be a differentiator in whatever we do in the current era of hypercompetitive global environment. The result of our unceasing focus on excellence is reflected clearly in the insights and guidance we offer to our customers in order to empower them to create brand equity. Our simple yet very powerful underpinning for navigating the competition is to always keep evolving with changing business environments.
