Optical coating is a deposition of thin layers of films that create interference effects, in order to enhance reflection and transmission properties of an optical system. Optical coatings enhance optical functions and provide protection to optic from harsh environmental conditions. These coatings are manufactured by using rare earth materials, oxides, and metals.

The global optical coatings market is estimated to reach around US$ 24202.12 million by the end of 2030, in terms of revenue, growing at CAGR of 6.8 % during the forecast period (2022-2030).

Drivers

The growing market of smartphones is a prime factor augmenting the market growth of the optical coatings. This is attributed to increasing penetration of the internet around the globe. For instance, International Telecommunication Union, estimates that at the end of 2030, 53.6% of the global population, or 4.1 billion people, were using internet. Thus, growing penetration of smartphones around the globe is expected to propel the market growth of optical coatings.

Technological advancements in the field of optical deposition techniques and fabrications are expected to offer potential opportunities to the market of optical coating. For instance, in March 2019, Precision Glass & Optics announced the installation of a new optical monitoring system, SL-2012A SpectraLock from Eddy Company. The advanced system provides in-situ optical monitoring and rate control to produce single and multi-layered thin films with ultra-precision and accuracy.

Coronavirus is expected to have a significant impact on infrastructure sector. Infrastructure are expected to vulnerable to delays due to supply chain disruptions and unavailability or shortage of workers. Governments across the world are devoting resources to address immediate needs, which in turn has made infrastructure projects take a back seat. This is expected to lower demand for optical coatings from infrastructure sector. The coronavirus is expected to have a short term impact on optical coatings market. According to Coherent Market Insights, optical coatings market is expected to grow at a lower CAGR 6.8 % between 2020 and 2021.
