Industrial Demand for Abrasion Resistant Coatings: Market Analysis and Forecast

Posted by Jack Martin on June 27th, 2023

Abrasion-resistant coatings are specially formulated protective coatings designed to withstand and minimize the effects of mechanical abrasion, wear, and friction on surfaces. These coatings provide an extra layer of defense against damage caused by rubbing, scraping, impact, or erosion. The abrasion-resistant coatings market is projected to reach USD 11.1 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. 

The primary function of abrasion-resistant coatings is to enhance the durability and lifespan of substrates by reducing surface wear and preventing material degradation. They offer resistance to various forms of abrasion, including abrasive particles, surface friction, scratching, and scuffing.

Abrasion-resistant coatings are commonly used in a wide range of industries and applications. They can be applied to metal, concrete, plastic, wood, and other surfaces that require protection against wear and abrasion. Some common areas of application include industrial equipment, machinery components, automotive parts, pipelines, flooring, tools, marine structures, and architectural surfaces.

These coatings are typically formulated with high-performance materials such as epoxy, polyurethane, ceramic, or composite-based resins. They may contain additives like hard particles, fibers, or polymers that enhance their resistance to abrasion. The specific composition and properties of the coating can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of the application.

The leading players in the abrasion-resistant coatings market are AkzoNobel N.V. (Netherlands), Saint-Gobain (France), Jotun A/S (Norway), The Sherwin-Williams Company (US), Hempel A/S (Denmark), Praxair Surface Technologies (UK), Henkel (Germany), and Sika AG (Switzerland).
