Strong Growth Seen for Aerospace Coatings

Feb. 10, 2017
Requirements for aerospace coating materials are expected to continue to grow in OEM and MRO applications.

Coating materials provide protection, and protection is never enough in hostile defense and aerospace environments—whether for equipment or personnel. According to the latest market research from Visiongain, “Aerospace Coatings Market Report: 2016-2026,” the aerospace coating markets for 2016 will top off at $584.5 million and is expected to increase steadily over the 10-year period noted. Aerospace coatings are applied to aircraft to improve wear protection and corrosion resistance, enhance surface hardness, achieve weight reduction, and reduce oxidation. The added protection helps to improve system reliability and cut down on maintenance requirements.

The 181-page report provides forecasts for coatings used in different markets, including by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and for maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) applications in commercial aircraft, general aviation, and military markets. Coatings and coating materials encompasses a wide range of products, for both interior and exterior coatings, including traditional materials such as epoxy resin and polyurethane resin, as well as advanced materials such as nanostructure metals.

The report includes profiles of the 10 leading aerospace coatings suppliers, in addition to breakdowns of growth for aerospace coatings by global regions and market areas.
