Major application segments projecting substantial growth, include Self-Cleaning coatings expected to surpass $8.5 billion in 2030, Smart-Antimicrobials as the second-largest segment at $5.2 billion, and other segments like Anti-Icing, Anti-Fouling, EC Glass Coatings, and Anti-Corrosives ranging from $1.3 billion to nearly $3 billion.

All major applications forecast double-digit growth annually, ranging from 12% to 27%.

Factors of Influence

Smart and multifunctional coatings play a pivotal role in supporting sustainability, efficiency, user experience improvement, energy savings and generation. Their adoption has steadily increased, absorbing a growing share of the paint and coatings industry. As the trend continues, diversified use with sectors and new applications and use cases will evolve.

Industries deploying smart coatings will still face challenges due to inflationary pressures, higher interest rates, construction activity slowdowns, electric vehicle adoption, pressure to reduce Bill of Materials (BOM), and environmental policies targeting carbon reduction. Communicating clear cost/benefits will be essential as smart coatings have cost premiums compared to traditional approaches.

The next wave of use cases within both new and existing applications and verticals will drive further innovations in coatings, application methods and underlying materials.  Suppliers will play an active role in driving the business forward in showing what is possible, where, when, and how.
