Photocatalytic coatings products is a result of photo catalysis reaction. Photo catalysis is the acceleration of a photoreaction in the presence of a catalyst. In catalyzed photolysis, light is absorbed by an adsorbed substrate. The ability of the catalyst to make an electron–hole pairs, which generate free radicals capable of secondary reactions, determines the photo catalytic activity (PCA) in photo-generated catalysis. The electrolysis of water molecules by titanium dioxide (TiO) is a popular application. A photo catalytic coating has the ability to self-maintain on the surface it is applied to and remove dirt that has accumulated on the surface.

The global photocatalytic coatings market is estimated to surpass US$ 19.68 million by the end of 2030 in terms of revenue, exhibiting a CAGR of 24.5% during the forecast period (2022 to 2030).

Drivers

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) has been widely used as a photocatalyst in many environmental and energy applications due to its high stability, efficient photoactivity, low cost, and safety to the environment and humans. In self-cleaning application of titanium dioxide, the finding of the photo-induced hydrophilicity in the last decade has markedly widened the application range of titanium dioxide coated material, which is further increasing the demand for the titanium dioxide.

Among region, Asia Pacific region held largest market share of 25.50% in 2021. In 2021 Asia Pacific is the most important contributor to the growth of the photocatalytic coatings market. The usage of photocatalytic coatings in the healthcare business is increasing, since it is also utilized to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses. To decrease the transmission of airborne toxins and allergens like COVID-19 and MRSA, photocatalytic coatings are utilized in hospitals, acute care facilities, assisted living homes, senior care facilities, athletic centers, schools, child-care facilities, arenas, airports, and other institutions.

Market Restraints

The availability of cadmium sulphide and zinc oxide is threatening the replacement of titanium oxide which is the highest-grossing substance in the photocatalyst industry. The substitutes offer cheaper solutions which are estimated to act as one of the major challenges of the photocatalyst market. The substitutes are also available at cheaper prices and are affordable. The price of zinc oxide in India is US$3.44 (Rs.250) per 100 grams. It makes it an easy substitute and therefore acts as one of the major challenges to the photocatalytic coating market.

Market Trends

Titanium dioxide is a white powder that is commonly used as a white pigment, white plastic, and white paper ingredient. It is also used in cosmetics because it absorbs ultraviolet radiation. In order to increase its photo catalytic capability, titanium dioxide photo catalyst is produced by slightly altering its crystal structure and converting it to fine powder. When exposed to ultraviolet light, it exhibits decomposing capacity and hydrophilic qualities. Due to such factors, the market for photocatalytic coatings is expected to have a steady growth during the forecast period.
