Hydrophobic coatings refer to thin layers of nanoparticles that repel water. They are applied to surfaces of various products, such as metal, glass, concrete, plastic, wood, and ceramics, to make them water repellent and easier to clean as water, dirt, and other substances roll off the surface. They also provide excellent resistance to moisture, corrosion, scratch and abrasion, and self-cleaning properties to surfaces. As a result, hydrophobic coatings are extensively used across the construction, automotive, healthcare, textiles, aerospace, and marine industries.
The increasing applications of hydrophobic coatings across various sectors represent the primary factor driving the market growth. For instance, automotive manufacturers are increasingly utilizing hydrophobic coatings for car windows, displays, and metal components. This, in confluence with the growing automobile production, surging sales of high-end vehicles, and rising consumer expenditure capacities, is augmenting the product demand. Additionally, several product innovations, such as the implementation of nanoparticles in hydrophobic coatings to improve performance characteristics and surface area, are catalyzing the market growth. Besides this, since antimicrobial coatings prevent microbial growth, they have gained traction in the healthcare sector for manufacturing water-repellent medical devices, surgical tools, and nonwovens, such as gloves and gowns. Furthermore, the widespread adoption of anti-corrosion coatings for aerospace and automobile components and increasing construction activities in the residential and commercial sectors are propelling the market growth. Other factors, including the growing product usage in the optical industry, rising investments in research and development (R&D) activities by key players, and technological advancements, are also creating a positive market outlook.

The global hydrophobic coatings market was valued at US$ 2.16 Billion in 2021.
We expect the global hydrophobic coatings market to exhibit a CAGR of 5.30% during 2022-2027.
The extensive application of hydrophobic coatings on surfaces of various products, such as metal,
glass, concrete, etc., to make them water repellent and easier to clean, is primarily driving the global
hydrophobic coatings market.
The sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had led to the implementation of stringent
lockdown regulations across several nations resulting in the temporary closure of numerous end-use
industries for hydrophobic coatings.
Based on the type, the global hydrophobic coatings market has been divided into anti-corrosion,
anti-microbial, anti-icing, self-cleaning, anti-fouling, and others. Among these, anti-corrosion holds
the majority of the global market share.
Based on the material, the global hydrophobic coatings market can be categorized into
polysiloxanes, fluoroalkylsilanes, fluoropolymers, and others. Currently, polysiloxanes exhibits clear
dominance in the market.
Based on the fabrication method, the global hydrophobic coatings market has been segmented into
chemical vapor deposition, phase separation, sol gel process, electrospinning, and etching. Among
these, chemical vapor deposition represents the largest market share.
Based on the application, the global hydrophobic coatings market can be bifurcated into building
and construction, electronics, automotive, textiles, consumer goods, medical and healthcare, and
others. Currently, the building and construction sector accounts for the majority of the total market
On a regional level, the market has been classified into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle
East and Africa, and Latin America, where Asia-Pacific currently dominates the global market.
Some of the major players in the global hydrophobic coatings market include 3M Company, Abrisa
Technologies, AccuCoat Inc., Aculon Inc., Akzo Nobel N.V., BASF SE, Cytonix LLC, NEI Corporation,
