COVID-19 Impact on Self-cleaning Paints Market

  • The prevailing COVID-19 pandemic situation has weakened the demand for paints in automotive and construction sectors. The path to recovery for the self-cleaning paints industry is highly dependent on the duration of restrictions imposed and their influence on economic activities across the globe.
  • Several governments have imposed strict rules and regulations to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infections. Because of these regulations, various industrial units were shut down or permitted to work with limited capacities. This has negatively impacted the self-cleaning paints market.

Key Drivers of Global Self-cleaning Paints Market

  • The self-cleaning paints market is expected to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period. Expansion of construction, textile, and automotive sectors is anticipated to drive the demand for self-cleaning paints in the near future.
  • Self-cleaning paints are used in glass of buildings, cars, etc. to protect the surface from dust and water. Self-cleaning paints are also used to prevent corrosion of metal surfaces. Thus, these paints can provide added protection.

Self-cleaning Paints Market: Segmentation

  • The self-cleaning paints market can be segmented based on type, end-use, and region.
  • Based on type, the self-cleaning paints market can be classified into hydrophilic and hydrophobic
  • Based on end-use, the global self-cleaning paints market can be segregated into automotive, building & construction, textiles, and others

Self-cleaning Paints Market: By Type

  • Based on the type, the global market can be segmented into hydrophilic and hydrophobic
  • Self-cleaning paints are usually superhydrophobic, as their water contact angle is greater than 150°. These surfaces are highly water repellent and water tends to form spherical droplets that roll away from the surface, carrying dirt away.
  • Superhydrophobic surface can be obtained only if the hydrophobic surface is roughened on micro and nanometer scales

Self-cleaning Paints Market: By End-use

  • Based on the end-use, the global market is segmented into automotive, construction, textiles, and others
  • The automotive segment is projected to gain high share of the global market during the forecast period
  • The building & construction segment is predicted to dominate the global market. Extensive use of self-cleaning paints in construction and automotive sectors is expected to boost the global market in the near future.

Self-cleaning Paints Market: By Region

  • In terms of region, the global self-cleaning paints market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • North America is likely to hold higher key share of the global self-cleaning paints market during the forecast period. Rise in construction of glass commercial buildings is driving the self-cleaning paints market in the region.
  • The market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period, owing to the presence of well-established construction, textile, and automotive industries in the region. China, India, and Japan are anticipated to contribute significantly to the expansion of the market in Asia Pacific in the near future.

Self-cleaning Paints: Introduction

  • Self-cleaning paints create a microscopic textured surface, which is hydrophobic. It causes water to bead up into droplets that roll away from the surface.
  • Acid rain can weaken paint layers, which can eventually make metal surfaces more susceptible to rust and other damages. However, self-cleaning paints aim to reduce the impact of such damages.
  • In technological terms, self-cleaning paints are known as nanocoatings
  • Hydrophobic surfaces have high water contact angles, which is above 900. Self-cleaning paints are usually superhydrophobic, as their water contact angle is greater than 150°. These surfaces are highly water repellent and water tends to form spherical droplets that roll away from the surface, carrying dirt away.
  • Superhydrophobic surface can be obtained only if the hydrophobic surface is roughened on micro and nanometer scales. Therefore, the efficiency of a self-cleaning paints is dependent on the roughness and chemical composition of the surface and dirt particle adhesion to water droplets.
