Photocatalytic Coating Market

Photocatalytic Coating Market Estimated To Witness High Growth Owing To Rising Demand From Construction Industry


The photocatalytic coating market is estimated to be valued at US$ 4.25 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 24% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
Photocatalytic coatings are functional coatings that use the process of photocatalysis to induce chemical reactions. They have self-cleaning and air purifying properties. These coatings are applied on building facades, roofs, windows, pavements and other exterior surfaces of buildings to reduce air pollution and keep surfaces clean. They oxidize organic and inorganic pollutants from air and surface through a photocatalytic process when activated by sunlight or artificial light.

Market Dynamics:
The rising demand from the construction industry is estimated to be a major driver for the photocatalytic coating market growth over the forecast period. Photocatalytic coatings find widespread application in green buildings, owing to their self-cleaning and air purifying properties. They help reduce maintenance cost and improve aesthetics of buildings. Furthermore, growing environmental concerns regarding air pollution and emphasis on sustainable construction are also fueling the demand for these coatings globally. Rapid urbanization in developing nations has accelerated construction activities, which in turn is boosting the market. In addition, support from various government initiatives and regulations regarding green buildings is positively impacting the market.

SWOT Analysis
Strength: Photocatalytic coatings offer self-cleaning and air purifying properties that reduce maintenance costs. They are environmentally friendly as they help reduce harmful pollutants. The advanced nanotechnology used makes the coatings highly durable and long-lasting.
