Global Hard Coating Film Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A type of coating that is applied to a surface to provide protection from wear, abrasion, or corrosion.

Hardcoated Polycarbonate Film:

Hardcoated Polycarbonate film is a type of polycarbonate resin film that has been coated with an aluminum layer. The primary function of this product is to provide metal adhesion on the surface from where it is going to be used. It can be used for various applications such as display panels, automotive components, and electronic devices among others. Growth in end-use industries such as automotive & transportation and consumer electronics are expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period.

Hardcoated Polyester Film:

Hardcoated polyester film is a type of plastic film that contains an inner layer of polyester resin and an outer layer of metal. The metal in this case is usually aluminum, which has a high melting point. This helps the plastic retain its original shape even after it has been cooked for recycling or processing in the hard coating line.

Application Insights:

Membrane switches was the largest application segment in 2017 and is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Membrane switches are used in various applications such as industrial, automation, healthcare, safety & security and consumer electronics. The demand for membrane switches is anticipated to be driven by their low cost structure with high durability properties which makes them suitable for use in numerous applications across diverse industries.

The display segment held a substantial share of the global hard coat film market revenue in 2017 owing to increasing demand from several end-use industries including automotive, construction and electrical & electronics sectors among others. Increasing product penetration into display panels used on account of its superior chemical resistance coupled with high impact strength makes it a favorable option over other films when it comes to displays purpose.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to rising demand from end-use industries such as electrical & electronics, automotive, packaging, and others. China is one of the largest producers of hard coatings across the globe owing to availability of raw materials coupled with cheap labor cost.

The Asia Pacific market was followed by Europe in terms of revenue generation in 2017 due to high demand for touch screens from mobile phones and tablets coupled with growing application scope from other end-use industries such as aerospace & defense industry. North America also contributed significantly towards global growth through membrane switches application segment on account rise in requirement for small size devices that operate at higher speeds with low power consumption levels.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for hard coating films from the automotive and aerospace industries due to their superior mechanical and chemical properties.
  • Growing demand for hard coatings in optical applications due to their superior abrasion resistance, scratch resistance, and hardness.
  • Increasing use of hard coatings in medical devices and implants due to their biocompatibility and corrosion resistance properties.
  • Rising demand for hard coatings from the semiconductor industry as a result of the miniaturization trend in electronics manufacturing.
