The global anti-reflective coatingsmarket size reached US$ 4.7 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 6.9 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 6.2% during 2023-2028.
Anti-reflective coatings refer to the optical coatings that are formulated to minimize reflections from an optical surface. Along with controlling transmission and reflection of ultraviolet, visible, and near-infrared radiations, these dielectric coatings also contribute to the controlling of temperature and humidity. As a result of these coatings, vision clarity is improved and blue light and ultraviolet ray penetration is prevented. When applied to lenses, mirrors, or other optical surfaces, they reduce reflection, increase transmission, and enhance the throughput by controlling the reflexive index. Additionally, they improve visibility and contrast for complex imaging systems, such as telescopes and solar panels. Eyewear coated with anti-reflective materials provides a crisp view while being resistant to scratching, dust, and water. As a result, these materials find widespread applications in the semiconductor, automotive, construction, electronics, solar power, and aerospace industries.
Anti-reflective Coatings Market Trends:
The market is majorly driven by the escalating demand for anti-reflective coatings for manufacturing lenses and glasses. In addition to this, the rising adoption of high transmitting anti-reflective glasses in the construction industry is providing an impetus to the market. Also, the rapid product utilization as a protective element on the screens of smartphones, televisions, laptops, and other electronic gadgets is a significant growth-inducing factor for the market. Moreover, the growing rates of solar panel installations due to increasing demand for renewable sources of energy are augmenting the product demand on the global level. The market is further driven by continual product innovations, such as the advent of oil repellant, self-cleaning and nano scale oxide coatings. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the growing prevalence of vision impairment, rapid urbanization and industrialization, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities.
