BMIRE00026407 | Pages: 100 | Chemicals and Materials | Sep 2022 | Type: Global | Status: Published

The market crossed US$ 677 million mark in 2022 and is expected to hit US$ 988 million by 2030, recording a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period.


Rising demand for mirror coating in the construction & automotive industry

Mirror coating is applied during the float process to enhance the amount of heat reflected by the glass. This enables it to absorb and reflect the harmful UV and infrared rays of the sun yet allow natural visible light to pass through. It also prevents excessive solar glare. Mirror coatings on glass are used to combat the rising rate of energy consumption because it helps block solar heat and glare from entering inside. Thus, the demand for mirror coating is increasing and is further expected to drive market growth in the forecast period. 

Within the report, the market is segmented into resin type, application, technology, and geography. By resin type, the market is segmented into polyurethane and epoxy. By technology, the market is divided into water-based, solvent-based, and nanotechnology-based. By application, the market is categorized into architectural, automotive, solar power, and others. Geographically, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa.

Rising demand for low-VOC, green, and sustainable mirror coatings

The demand for green coatings or low-VOC coatings is increasing due to the rising trend in various applications in environment-friendly or green products. Stringent regulations implemented by Europe’s Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), and other regional regulatory authorities led manufacturers to manufacture environment-friendly coatings with low VOC levels. Also, growth in the number of eco-friendly buildings, where there has been an increased deployment of renewable energy sources such as solar energy is expected to fuel the demand for mirror coatings. These factors are expected to propel the mirror coating market globally.

Increased solar power reliance boosting mirror coatings demand

Solar energy deployment is surging rapidly. As per the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), uptake of solar energy surged by 42% in the previous decade across the U.S. alone. As of 2020, over 230,000 Americans work in the solar industry at more than 10,000 companies. Furthermore, the International Energy Agency (IEA) estimated that concentrated solar power generation increased by around 34% in 2019, resulting in a cumulative generation amount of 629 GW. Hence, the demand for mirror coatings to manufacturing solar cell panels is increasing, and further expected to drive the market growth.
