Chemical Surface Treatment Market Analysis Report (2021 - 2026)

The size of Chemical Surface Treatment Market size is expected to reach $17.58 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 5.10% during 2021-2026.

The increasing demand for fiber-reinforced plastics to reduce the weight of automobiles has increased the demand for market growth. Chemical surface treatment is defined as the aluminum surface modification through chemical processes. This type of surface treatment is cast-off most often as a pre-treatment process for the following finishing operations, like powder coating or anodizing. Chemical surface treatment is used to enhance the aluminum corrosion performance.

Higher usage of chemical surface treatment in various end-use industries, including industrial packaging, machinery, construction, and transportation, is highly increasing the global chemical surface treatment market share. Furthermore, the advantages offered by chemical surface treatment, like electrical conductivity, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, are increasing the demand for chemical surface treatment.

Recent Developments

  • Nippon Paint Surf Chemicals, which holds Japan’s largest market share of surface treatment agents for aluminum beverage cans, will demonstrate its cutting-edge surface treatment system at Cannex & Fillex Asia Pacific 2018, a Can-making Industry International Trade Fair.

  • In 2018, A BRITE COMPANY entered into a partnership with Green Powder Products to expand the business and generate revenue for the business.

Chemical Surface Treatment Market Drivers

Robust demand for durable and wear-resistant products, together with the myriad application of chemicals across the automotive industry for surface treatment, will enhance the development of chemical surface treatment market size over the forecast period. The rising application of anodizing aluminum in residential and commercial sectors will further enhance the growth of the market. Chemical surface treatments are utilized in a wide range of end-use industries like transportation, industrial machinery, packaging, and construction, among others, as they provide corrosion resistance, wear resistance, reflexivity, electric resistance, torque tolerance, hardness, and chemical resistance to base substrates. Increasing demand for automobiles and an increasing number of infrastructure projects in developing economies is anticipated to enhance the market of chemical surface treatment. 

The utility in consumer also as industrial construction is booming. Industries utilize these surface treating chemicals in construction for residential also as commercial infrastructure. This can be due to the wear and tear resistance also as corrosion resistance properties induced by chemical treatment. They're also augmented in terms of hardness due to the varied properties induced by chemical treatment.

Chemical Surface Treatment Market Restraints

The formulation and stringent implementation of different government regulations on the employment of plating chemicals, which are hazardous to human health, are major challenges for the expansion of the chemical surface treatments market during the forecast period. The European Union has put into effect an integrated Pollution Prevention and Control Directive to limit the use of harmful chemicals that may have a negative effect on the total growth of the chemical surface treatment market in that region.

Concerns regarding the consequences of chemical surface treatment have caused the majority of the product manufacturers to mainly focus on green (bio-based) chemicals so as to follow the different stringent policies brought to the industry by the concerned authority. Green chemicals aren't only environment-friendly but also cost-efficient as compared to their conventional counterparts. These chemicals are produced by using plant and animal extracts and also are manufactured by implementing environment-friendly procedures.

Chemical Surface Treatment Market

Chemical Surface Treatment Market Segmentation as per the research report until 2026.

Chemical Surface Treatment Market - By Product Type

  • Cleaners
  • Plating Chemicals
  • Conversion coatings 
  • Others

The plating chemicals segment held a major share in the chemical surface treatment market in 2020. The expansion of this segment of the market is often attributed to the suitability of plating chemicals to be used in various end-use industries like transportation, industrial machinery, and construction. Growing adoption of plating to cut back scrap rate, bath solution losses, and improved quality of the surface is further fueling the segment growth. 

Moreover, the cleaning chemicals segment is projected to grow at a major pace as they're utilized in industries for cleaning and degreasing substrates before they're plated. They are also used to remove carbon smut, oils and coolants, lapping compounds, metal oxides, and other soils from surfaces during different surface treatment processes.

Conversion coating allows a product to be treated electro-chemically. These include procedures like parkouring and chromate conversion coating.

Chemical Surface Treatment Market - By Base Material

  • Metals 
  • Plastics 
  • Others

The plastics segment held a big share in the chemical surface treatment market in 2020. The expansion of this segment of the market is often attributed to the preference given to plastics over metals in various end-use industries like transportation and construction as they're lightweight. Moreover, plastics also offer simple fabrication as they will be easily formed and machined. Moreover, they require reduced finishing. Its booming utility in automotive also as the general industry is due to its lightweight and better chemical resistance over metals. Chemical polishing is a process that is used for aesthetic surface treatment of surface finishes, and it is a very effective treatment method in terms of efficiency and costs. Phosphating is defined as a chemical change that is used for treating the steel surface, in which barely soluble metal-phosphate layers are developed at the bottom of the material.

Chemical Surface Treatment Market - By End-User 

  • Transportation 
  • Construction
  • Industrial Machinery
  • Packaging
  • Others

The transportation segment held a major share in the chemical surface treatment market in 2020, growing at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. The expansion of this segment of the market is attributed to ongoing urbanization, increasing the number of vehicles, and improving road infrastructure across the world that has resulted in an increased number of private vehicles worldwide. According to the world organization of automobile Manufacturers, the contribution of the automotive industry plays an important role within the economy of any country, and as per the info available from this organization, the automotive industry registered a rise of 4.5% in its production in 2016 as compared to 2015.
