Research and Markets
·7-min read

Dublin, Oct. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Surface Treatment Chemicals Market: Focus on Application, Chemical Type, Base Material/Surface Type, and Country Level Analysis - Analysis and Forecast, 2020-2025" report has been added to's offering.

The global surface treatment chemicals market is growing in the present market, especially in automotive, general industries and machinery, coil industry, and aerospace, along with other applications, including metalworking, glass, and wood industries. These end users have been adopting surface treatment chemicals as these materials enhance the durability, aesthetics, corrosion and weathering resistance and longevity of the substrates/components on which they are applied to. Also, there have been recent developments in surface treatment chemicals where these materials have been found to be effective in combating the COVID-19 virus.

Among the various chemical types of surface treatment chemicals, the corrosion protection chemicals hold the largest market share. However, the adoption of passivation chemicals is expected to be increasing fastest during the forecast period 2020-2025.

Among the various base material/surface types, the metals hold the largest market share. However, the demand for surface treatment chemicals for other surfaces, such as wood and glass, is expected to be witnessing the fastest growth during the forecast period, 2020-2025.

Apart from growing demand for the surface treatment chemicals, there are some issues that are likely to restrict market growth. These include strict environmental norms related to the release of harmful chromium contents, such as hexavalent chromium and severely impacted automotive and aerospace industries due to the global lockdowns imposed as a safety measure against the COVID-19 virus.

The global surface treatment chemicals market accounted for $6,187.4 million in 2019 and is expected to be $7,833.5 million by 2025. The market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.19% during the forecast period 2020 to 2025. The market growth is attributed to the increased adoption of surface treatment chemicals in the growing end-use industries, such as automotive, general industries and industrial machinery, coil industry, and aerospace. These materials have proved their potential against combating COVID-19 by the development of the MIRO UV-C product by ALANOD GmbH.
