Report Overview

The global surface treatment market’s growth is attributable to the rising demand for eco-friendly chemicals, durable and wear-resistant products, and growing investments in the chemical industry.

Global Surface Treatment Market - Industry Trends & Forecast Report 2028

The global surface treatment market is expected to grow from USD 6.2 Billion in 2021 to USD 9.4 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period of 2022-2028. This can be attributed to the extensive employment of surface treatment across a range of end-use industries like transportation, packaging, construction, industrial machinery, and many others. Moreover, the advantages offered by the surface treatment include corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity, wear resistance, reflexivity, electrical resistance, hardness, torque tolerance, and chemical resistance to the base substrates, which act as a major force in driving its demand in the global market.

Global Surface Treatment Market

Surface Treatment Overview

Surface Treatment can be defined as a process of improving the properties such as hardness, wear- and corrosion resistance, etc., of various surfaces. High quality and outstanding durability can be achieved through effective surface treatment processes. It is also a proven method for eradicating sludge generation in metals and maintaining excellent corrosion protection. The process generally involves cleaning, activation, phosphating, and passivation. It is used to perform chemical-based surface finishing operations such as lowering or improving photosensitivity, stripping paints and other difficult stains, corrosion curing, and, most critically, electroplating metal surface defects and controlling surface friction and attrition.

Growth Drivers

Rising Demand For Metal And Low Density Yet Tough Material In Emerging Industries Driving The Market Growth

The most imperative advantage of surface treatment chemicals is that they add up to the metal equipment's lifespan, making it a more economical and sustainable choice. As the end-use industry is the largest buyer of surface treatment chemicals, the increasing demand for metal and low density yet tough material in several industries such as construction, automotive, and transportation is projected to show in the global surface treatment market. The trend is expected to affect the global surface treatment market positively. Also, swift industrialization in emerging economies like South Korea, China, India, and other African countries, alongside growing international trade powering the transportation sector and intensifying residential and commercial infrastructure among the construction sector, is escalating demand for surface treatment chemicals during the forecast period 2022-2028.

Restraint

Strict Government Regulations And Policies Is Impeding The Market Growth

Although the surface cleaning market is showing an unprecedented growth rate, certain factors are likely to hamper the market's growth. These factors include the rigorous regulatory measures of the developed as well as some emerging economies. Moreover, the stringent environmental norms related to the release of harmful chromium contents, like hexavalent chromium, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), etc. also play a crucial role in negatively impacting the automotive and aerospace, thus in turn affecting the global surface treatment market during the forecast period 2022-2028.

Impact Of COVID-19 On Global Surface Treatment Market

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on demand for surface treatments is different in different end-use industries. Among different markets, automotive and aerospace are the two major markets that registered an immense downfall in demand for surface treatments during the pandemic. On the other hand, metal processing and aluminum finishing, the other two major markets, saw a minor impact on the pandemic. Overall, the global surface treatment market experienced a colossal decline in the market size. A major come-back is expected from the first quarter of 2022 onwards, with sequential growth in the succeeding years.
