Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand Low Friction Coating in Automotive Industry

  • Low friction coatings give improved performance and service life while dispensing with the requirement for wet lubricants in a working environment that expect protection from heat, synthetic substances, or cleanroom conditions.
  • According to the U.S. Department of Energy, one-third of automobiles fuel or electric energy consumption is spent overcoming friction which has a direct impact on emissions and miles per gallon (MPG) or Miles per gasoline-equivalent (MPGe).
  • The Implementation of low-friction and super-hard coatings in the automotive industry provides a low friction surface, increased fuel economy, durability, and environmental compatibility of advanced engine systems.
  • The automotive industry is expected to grow significantly over the coming years. Evolving digital technology, change in customer sentiment and economic health have played a vital role in non-commercial business practices of manufacturing vehicles.
  • Hence, owing to the above-mentioned factors, the application of low friction coating in automotive industry is likely to dominate during the forecast period.
Low Friction Coating Market Revenue Share

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market

  • Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. The rising demand for low friction coating with the growing automotive and healthcare industry in countries like China and India is expected to drive the demand for low friction coating in this region.
  • The largest producers of low friction coating are based in the Asia-Pacific region. Some of the leading companies in the production of low friction coating are VITRACOAT, CARL BECHEM GMBH, The Chemours Company, Dow, and ASV Multichemie Private Limited among others.
