Electrically conductive coatings use various types of materials, such as acrylics, epoxies, and polyesters. Acrylics are the most common types of coating used in electronics, satellite dishes, and circuit board applications. Pigments, together with chemicals, provide better shielding for electronic and electromedical devices that emit electromagnetic waves. These materials are mainly used to prevent electrostatic and electromagnetic interference (EMI). Growing technological advancements in electronics, rising need for electronic security cards, and increasing calls from construction and aerospace industries are estimated to drive the market for electrically conductive coatings in the coming years.
In July 2019, Trelleborg launched different electrically conductive PTFE-based sealants for dynamic applications. Trelleborg Sealing Solutions introduces Turcon® MC1 and Turcon® MC2 materials, the only electrically conductive polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) materials that can be used in elastomeric and spring seals. Designed for dynamic applications, seals and bearings in materials will provide a reliable electrical connection between moving parts.
In August 2020, Hexcel introduced a new electrically conductive 3D printing material. HexPEKK EM composite components are ready to fly after printing.
In July 2019, Graphmatech launched the most conductive transformable composite in the world. Award-winning Swedish startup Graphmatech has successfully launched a new world record material in just 22 months and less than $ 1 million since the company was founded. On average, this process takes seven years and tens of millions of dollars.
The growing penetration of smartphones and consumer electronics is fueling the demand for electrically conductive coatings. These coatings are generally made from materials including polyesters, polyureas, epoxy, and acrylics. Epoxy is one of the most widely used materials due to its superior mechanical properties, durability, and weather resistance. These coatings are used as a metal replacement in various industries such as solar power, aerospace, consumer electronics, life sciences, and automotive. Acrylics are also gaining popularity due to their low cost, excellent weather resistance, and good conductivity and moisture resistance.
Macroeconomic factors such as increasing urbanization and industrialization and rising per capita income are also boosting the global electrically conductive coatings market. The expansion of the consumer electronics sector has a positive impact on the growth of the market. These coatings are also used in thin layers on plastic housings and enclosures to help dissipate static charge and provide protection against EMI. The presence of a large number of regional players has made the market very competitive. Most of the key players in the global electrically conductive coatings market are leveraging strategies like new product launches and technological innovation to diversify their offerings. Market players should take advantage of the immense potential offered by developing regions to stay ahead on the global stage.
The major constraints in the electrically conductive coatings market are the initial capital required for equipment and the increasingly stringent environmental regulations on air pollutants and volatile toxic compounds emitted during coating processes.
Some of the factors influencing the global electrically conductive coatings market include the high demand for consumer electronics devices such as mobile phones, laptops, tablets, and LCD TVs. The company providing the electrically conductive coating has a great opportunity in regions such as Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa, and Latin America attributed to the rapidly growing industrial economy. The electrically conductive coatings market also presents significant opportunities in North America and Western Europe attributed to the growing consumer electronics industry in the region. The global electrically conductive coatings market is highly competitive.
The toxic nature and government regulations on products harmful to the environment are expected to hamper the business of the market.
