Anti-reflective Coatings are optical thin film coatings that helps in the reduction of reflection properties and enhance transmission of the optical surface. Anti-reflective coatings are mainly used in the semiconductor, automotive, construction, airplane industries in order to protect the surface of the components.

The global anti-reflective coatings market is projected to surpass US$ 8.5 billion by the end of 2027, in terms of revenue, growing at CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period (2020 to 2027).

Drivers

Growing demand for anti-reflective coatings for manufacturing of high transmitting lenses and glasses is expected to drive the market growth of anti-reflective coatings. Expanding eyewear market is also fueling the market growth of anti-reflective coatings. This is attributed to growing vision impairments along with the increasing geriatric population which is creating demand for eyewear products. Thus growing demand for eyewear products is expected to foster the market growth of anti-reflective coatings.

Rising installation of the solar panel around the globe due to increasing demand for a renewable source of energy is expected to augment the market growth of anti-reflective coatings. Rising need to reduce the reliance on fossil fuels coupled with the growing demand for energy is expected to spur the market growth. Anti-reflective coatings are widely applied on the surface of solar PV. Thus, rising adoption of solar PV is escalating the market growth of anti-reflective coatings.

Regionally, North America dominated the global anti-reflective coatings market in 2019, reporting 38% market share in terms of revenue, followed by Asia-pacific and Europe, respectively.
