According to MarkNtel Advisors, the Global Anti-Fingerprint Coatings Market is expecting around 7.01% CAGR during 2021-26. The rapidly increasing demand for anti-fingerprint coatings in solar panels, the building & construction sector, and the automotive industry is the prime factor driving the global market. Besides, the rising penetration of consumer goods like mobile phones, tablets, and laptops is also fueling the demand for anti-fingerprint coatings to obtain clean & clear screens in these electronic items.
The mounting adoption of anti-fingerprint coatings in the automobile industry is primarily to enhance the aesthetic appearance of vehicles. Additionally, anti-fingerprint coatings are used in ceramic sanitary ware for consumer hygiene, thereby contributing to the overall market growth. However, lack of knowledge regarding the benefits of anti-fingerprint coatings, coupled with their high costs, are the prime aspects that might restrain the market growth in the coming years, further states the research report, “Global Anti-Fingerprint Coatings Market Analysis, 2021.”
Consumer Goods Industry Captured the Largest Share of the Global Anti-Fingerprint Coatings Market
Based on the Application, the market bifurcates into Consumer Goods, Building & Construction, and the Automotive industry. Among these three, the Consumer Goods industry acquired the largest market share. With the surging demand for electronic devices, especially the usage of touchscreen devices that lead to the accumulation of oil & other residues on displays, the production & sales of anti-fingerprint coatings are also increasing simultaneously.
Further, their demand is significantly high in the building & construction sector for manufacturing architectural glasses & ceramic sanitary ware. These coatings help prevent the ceramic surface from sticking to water droplets & dirt particles, which, in turn, leads to extended protection from damages.
On the other hand, anti-fingerprint coatings in the automobile industry are used mainly for improving the aesthetics of vehicles. Moreover, the mounting usage of touchscreen display systems in automobiles is also expected to fuel the overall market growth in the coming years.
With Rapid R&D on Display Technologies, North America Dominates the Global Anti-Fingerprint Coating Market
Of all regions, the demand for Anti-fingerprint Coatings is significantly high in North America, owing prominently to rapid technological advancements, high disposable income, and the increasing R&D activities on developing better displays across the region. Moreover, the surge in the production & sales of automobiles in North America is another crucial aspect infusing the need for more anti-fingerprint coatings to achieve better aesthetics in vehicles.
The application of these coatings helps provide a clean view and incurs low maintenance costs. Moreover, the increasing adoption of anti-fingerprint coatings among the aerospace, automotive, construction, and wind energy sectors shall also contribute to the regional market growth in the years to come, reveals MarkNtel Advisors in their research report, “Global Anti-Fingerprint Coating Market Analysis, 2021.”
