Segment-Wise Analysis

What is the significance of the acrylic coating segment?

Today, one of the most often utilised conformal coatings is made of acrylic resin (AR). To apply the coatings to surfaces, pre-formed acrylic polymers that are single-component materials are dissolved in a solvent.

Due to their great moisture and humidity and superior fungal resistance, acrylics are commonly used as coatings on electrical circuits. Acrylics can be molded to the shape of electronic equipment and shield the entire surface from liquid, gas, dampness, humidity, UV light, and electrical problems. Additionally, the coatings emit little to no heat when curing, which is advantageous for heat-sensitive devices.

Region-Wise Analysis

The regions analyzed for the market include North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.

  • With a 45.1% share, the Asia Pacific region accounted for the most worldwide revenue. Expanding building activity and rising automobile sector demand, particularly in emerging nations like India, China, Korea, and Southeast Asia, are expected to drive market expansion in the future years.
  • The second-largest market is in Europe, contributing over 28% of the revenue value share worldwide. Growing building activity is predicted to increase demand for paints and coatings in several years in several nations, including the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Hungary, Germany, Sweden, Poland, and Ireland.
